FAQs about engagement gifts

Engagement gifts are steeped in tradition and culture, so many Aussies have questions about them. In this section, we'll attempt to answer as many of these questions as possible.

What is an engagement party?

An engagement party is a celebration of the newly engaged couple that involves their friends, family members, neighbours, and coworkers. They're more than just a sweet way to spend time with everyone's new fave couple – they're a chance for relatives to get to know each other, friends to start bachelor and bachelorette party planning, and the parents of the couple to formally announce the engagement of their children to the world.

Do you bring a gift to an engagement party?

Yes, it's customary to bring a thoughtful gift to the engagement party. Your gift doesn't have to be expensive or grand – bottles of wine, food-based gifts, gag gifts, and cash are all great gifts.

If you're giving the couple a larger engagement gift, it's okay to give a smaller wedding gift (or vice versa).

When is an engagement party held?

An engagement party is one of the first stops on a couple's engagement journey. It comes after the "yes!" but well before the wedding planning, honeymoon planning, and "I do's". In Australia, this typically means it happens within 1-2 months of a couple getting engaged. Some couples choose to skip the engagement party and just go straight into wedding planning.

What is an appropriate gift for an engagement?

When someone gets engaged, it's appropriate to give things like:

  • Hampers and gift baskets
  • Practical gifts for the home
  • Wine glasses
  • Wedding day items or anything that will help the couple prepare for their big day
  • Scented candles
  • A matching set of pyjamas
  • A nice bottle of wine or champagne
  • Gift vouchers
  • Cards

There is no one perfect engagement gift. Couples who are already living together will likely receive different gifts than couples who will be moving in together after the big day.

What gift can you give for an engagement?

You can give a couple almost anything you think they'd like as an engagement gift. The right gift for the happy couple will depend on whether they're already living together, the couple's style, your budget, and how close you are to the couple.
