Another day, another newly engaged couple flashing a rock on Instagram. But just because their caption is cliché (“can’t wait to spend forever with this one!”) doesn’t mean your engagement gift has to be. An engagement gift box is a great way to tailor your present to the couple’s personalities and pack a lot of celebration into one package with options for lovers who love to travel or spend their evenings cooking together.
We scoured the internet for 10 of the most unique gift boxes for engaged couples, whatever their love language may be.
1. A gift box designed to help their love grow
This gift box from Etsy seller The Whispering Nature lets you put a personal touch on items like a sweet ceramic ring dish bearing the happy couple’s initials. The box also comes with a mini succulent (fun fact: succulents are almost impossible to kill, so if they break the engagement off at least their love plant will endure), a planter with the words, “let love grow,” a custom matchbox, and a lavender-vanilla soy candle.
2. This gift box made for cozy weekends at home
Ensure that the newly engaged couple has a happily ever after—or at least a happy weekend—with this thoughtfully curated gift box from Box Fox. The charming box includes a Grosche stovetop espresso maker and stackable Tuxton espresso cups so they can skip the Starbucks drive-through and spend an extra hour snuggling in bed. There’s also a Love Potion candle from Brooklyn Candle studio to help spark romance, a Williams Sonoma cookbook written with newlyweds in mind, and more artful home goods.
3. This gift box that makes room for inclusion
This Happily Ever After gift box (turns out it’s a popular theme; who knew?) can be personalized for same-sex couples. Whether your couple is a Mr. and Mrs., a Mrs. and Mrs., or a Mr. and Mr., they’ll get a set of mugs marked accordingly. Packaged in a pretty pine box they can repurpose, this gift box also comes with a “happily ever after" tea towel, a bag of organic gourmet cookies, and a hand-poured soy candle in a fern and moss scent.
4. This gift basket for the exceptionally cheesy couple
How much cheese is too much cheese? The limit does not exist. If the newly engaged couple would agree with that sentiment, then this might be the gift for them. Harry & David’s Gourmet Cheese Gift delivers a package stuffed with a nutty Sartori BellaVitano Gold cheese, Rogue Creamery Oregon blue cheese, sharp white cheddar, and creamy Gouda right to their door. Plus, they’ll get bonus noshes including mixed nuts, a dried fruit assortment, and a bottle of pinot noir. Cheese, please!
5. This gift box made for poppin’ bottles
If you’re not toasting your engagement with bubbly, you’re not doing it right. Help your favorite couple kick off their future together with a bang (or a pop) with this gift box that includes all the supplies for a party for two: a 750ml bottle of Moet Brut Champagne, a set of crystal champagne flutes, some chocolates for snacking while they imbibe, and—our favorite part—a confetti cannon. Santé!
6. This gift box for the couple with refined taste
These days, when most of us hear the word “caviar” we think of the food delivery app that sends tacos right to our couch every Tuesday. But those with more discerning palates will appreciate this luxe gift box with the real thing. It comes with three 1-ounce tins of decadent, high-end Sasanian caviar and two mother-of-pearl spoons, which the couple can sensually feed to one another. Hey, one couple’s salty fish eggs are another’s ultimate delicacy.
7. A gift box for the couple who like to cook at home
If this gift box had a signature scent, it would be freshly baked bread. Perfect for the newly engaged couple who are ready to start nesting, hard, this homey gift box features an array of culinary goodies including coastal-farmed sea salt, chocolates from English chocolatier Pump Street Chocolate, a marble serving tray, striped kitchen towel, “Sunday Morning” candle, and a pretty dried farmhouse bouquet to tie it all together.
8. A gift basket to transport the lovebirds to Paris
If you’re a strict adherent to the rom-com canon, there’s just about nothing more romantic than getting proposed to in Paris. If the couple in question didn’t make it to the Eiffel Tower to pop the question, consider this the next best thing. The A Taste of France gift basket is packed full of snacks that reference the City of Lights, including three kinds of cheeses, French waffle crackers, fig jam, and more gastronomic delights.
9. This minimalist gift box for a couple’s mini spa day
The A Rare Proposal gift box is one of the more moderately priced options on our list, but it still feels special, with touches like a sprig of dried greenery to add a pop of whimsy when opened. The couple can enjoy a little R&R with champagne gummy drops in a recyclable glass jar (Bellini’s anyone?), a hand-poured “Congratulations” candle scented with notes of bourbon, vanilla, and citrus, and an exfoliating facial mask made of clays and coconut cream. Plus, they’ll get a ceramic ring dish with a pretty gold rim that was hand-thrown by a small-batch artisan.
10. A gift box for the couple on-the-go
No matter where they’re headed next on their new adventure the couple can take their celebratory cocktail with them. This gift box features a Champagne Cocktail Kit that includes all the ingredients needed for two cocktails—they just need to add the bubbles. The box also boasts two stemless champagne flutes, a packet of bubbly champagne drops, a copper-plated corkscrew, and vanilla bean cocoa nib caramel popcorn, lest the drinks go to their heads.
