7 Best Gift Ideas for Newly Engaged Brides

Did you best friend just get engaged? It’s time to celebrate! There are so many ways to congratulate your BFF on her upcoming nuptials, but you’ll want to get her something thoughtful, useful, and unique. No need to wait for her bridal shower or registry—the celebration begins now. If you’re wondering how to nail the right wedding gift for your best friend while she’s still buzzing from the proposal, we’ve got you covered. From practical to sentimental to fun, there’s something on this list for every bride. Here are the 7 best gift ideas for newly engaged brides.

1. Champagne & Flutes

It may seem obvious, but a nice bottle of champagne will be a much-welcomed gift for any newly engaged couple. During the few weeks after your best friend’s man popped the question, there will be lots of cheersing going on. Opt for a bottle of bubbly that’s priced just above what your BFF would spring for herself. And while you’re at it, why not throw in some bride & groom champagne flutes to really sweeten the toast?

2. Bridal Magazines

The newly-engaged stage is all about wedding inspo! Head to a magazine stand and pick up all the bridal magazines in stock for your bestie. She’ll likely be creating a wedding-planning Pinterest board soon enough, but for now, your best friend will enjoy flipping through some old fashion magazines while sipping that champagne and ogling her ring finger.

3. Manicure Gift Card

Even the most modest bride-to-be won’t be able to avoid showing off her engagement ring. After getting engaged, your BFF will likely be heading to the nail salon ASAP to get her digits polished before everyone starts grabbing for her hand, not to mention the Instagram ring selfie she’s probably dying to take. Consider getting your gal pal a gift card for a manicure so she can get her nails buffed and painted pronto.

4. Wedding Planner Notebook

Is your best friend a Type-A bride who’s been planning her wedding since she was a little girl? If that’s the case, you better believe she won’t be wasting any time now that she has a ring on her finger. One of the best gift ideas for newly engaged brides who were born to plan is—you guessed it—a wedding planner notebook she can carry with her wherever she goes to jot down ideas and calendar the months leading up to her big day.

5. The Ring Boxes Subscription

A great way to help your friend enjoy the “honeymoon phase” of her engagement is to sign her up for The Ring Boxes bridal subscription box. Subscriptions are available in 3-month, 6-month, and 9-month options and offer a monthly delivery of hand-picked wedding goodies including beauty products, accessories, shirts, cake toppers, decorations, and party favors.

6. Ring Holder

Your bestie bride-to-be is gonna need somewhere to set her ring when she washes her face, takes a shower, does some cleaning, or sleeps. An excellent gift idea for newly engaged brides is a ring holder. Some brides never go without wearing their rocks, but it’s always good to have a designated spot to set an engagement ring at home if needed.

7. Wedding Countdown Blocks

Once your best friend and her fiancé lock down a wedding date, the countdown begins. Wedding countdown blocks are a perfect engagement gift idea that’ll help your gal start crossing off the days until she’s a Mrs!

Whether your best friend is a detailed planner or an easy-breezy bride, there’s certainly something on this list for her. Our gift ideas for newly engaged brides are perfect to bring for engagement parties or just a fun little surprise to let your BFF know you’re thinking of her during this special time.
