Perfect Personalised Engagement Gifts
For those looking to buy a thoughtful engagement gift for friends getting ready for their big day, a personalised present will impress and delight every couple-to-be.
A personalised engagement gift is the perfect way to say congratulations to friends or family that have just announced they are tying the knot.
Whether they’re getting married in their hometown, or in an exotic destination like Thailand, there are plenty of presents to choose from, including everything from wedding planning journals through to gorgeous prints and artwork.
For couples that will be getting married in the Land of Smiles, you could even search for personalised gifts that allow you to reference the wedding’s tropical theme.
Below are a few favourite ideas.
If you’re going for a tropical vibe to match the stunning Thai setting of your friends’ wedding, this personalised walnut wedding planner by Oakdene Designs is ideal. The gorgeous walnut veneered MDF cover oozes exotic appeal, and the surface is sanded and hand-finished with boiled linseed oil for a smooth finish. The leafy fern designs are also a nod to the leafy, tropical feel of the Thai setting. The best part is, the names and date of the wedding on the cover of the book can be personalised, too.
If you think you think the bride is likely to experience some stress during the run-up to the big day, then perhaps this personalised bride-to-be survival kit is the ideal engagement gift? It contains a fragrant Mr and Mrs candle, a set of ‘to have and to hold’ matches and a pouch of delicately perfumed rose petals so your bestie can enjoy a relaxing bath on the morning of the big day. There’s also a set of different-sized safety pins for last minute outfit emergencies and a sixpence for good luck.
If you know the bride and groom are creating their own tropical-themed logo that will feature on all of their wedding stationery (cards, invitations, thank you notes etc.), then you might like to invest in some personalised stickers for them to use as well. Whatever Thailand-themed logo your friends have created, putting it on a sticker to seal all wedding correspondence is a gorgeous decorative flourish that will add real wow factor. If you know they’re looking for some inspiration for the design of their wedding logo, then incorporating curving palm trees, cute elephants or elegant orchids could really add to the unique Thai appeal.
As if the bride and groom-to-be aren’t already excited enough to be tying the knot, a countdown plaque will help them to ramp up the anticipation even more. If they are planning to say their vows on a spectacular Thai beach with the sand between their toes, then a beach-themed countdown plaque could be the ideal gift. Getting up each morning and adjusting the number of days until they say “I do” on the plaque’s miniature chalk board will make the period during the run-up to the wedding all the more exciting.
While a stunning framed print may not exactly help the bride and groom with their wedding planning, it’s a beautiful personalised keepsake that is sure to bring tears to their eyes. What’s more, a stunning piece of artwork like the one by De Frain Design London is a nod to the adorable tropical birds that flit around many a tropical garden in southern Thailand. Such prints also make the perfect anniversary gift for couples that have already tied the knot.
