Is someone you love getting married? While many people plan for bridal shower and wedding gifts, engagement gifts are often overlooked in all the excitement. However, engagement gifts are the perfect way to express your best wishes and help the happy couple begin their celebration. If you’re looking for the best engagement party gifts in Louisiana that won’t break the bank, Caroline & Company has your back. Let our gift-giving experts help you select thoughtful, personalized gifts for an engagement that come from the heart. Visit us at one of our convenient locations or browse our online collections.

What’s an Appropriate Engagement Party Gift?

There’s no right or wrong answer regarding engagement party gift ideas. How well you know the couple and the engagement party’s tone usually dictate the best type of gift to bring. Most couples won’t register for engagement party gifts, so it will be up to you to give what you feel is appropriate. Engagement gifts can be as whimsical, practical, or sentimental as you want.

Gag gifts may be best kept private unless you don’t mind sharing inside jokes with everyone at the party. If it’s a formal affair, you may feel more comfortable giving them home décor, a bottle of their favorite wine and personalized wine glasses, or even a gift card to somewhere you know they love to shop. Don’t feel obligated to spend a ton on gifts for an engagement, as there will also be shower and wedding gifts to buy.

Home Décor Gifts to Celebrate the Happy Couple

Whether the couple is already living together or about to embark on that journey, home décor gifts can be an excellent place to start. If you know the couple extremely well, selecting gifts that reflect their personality and style can be easier. Home décor elements are what truly transform a house into a cozy home. Caroline & Company carries home décor gift ideas for any budget, including these top sellers:

  • Throw Blankets – Who can resist the softness of a cozy throw blanket? They’re perfect for rainy or snowy days spent snuggling together on the couch. We carry throw blankets from CozyChic® in assorted colors, which are a celebrity favorite because of their extra-soft fabric.
  • Bud Vases – Whenever the happy couple celebrates a special occasion with flowers, they’ll think of you as they use their decorative bud vase. We have various vase sizes and styles available, ranging from amber to aqua, green, red, cobalt, pink, white, and clear.
  • Coffee Table Books – Coffee table books typically contain interesting subject matter and striking photography, making them fantastic conversation starters. Our home boutiques carry coffee table books on assorted subjects, including travel, flowers, jewelry, and designer accessories.

Kitchen Products for the Heart of Their Home

The kitchen is usually described as the heart of any home, so giving kitchen gifts to the engaged couple makes sense. At Caroline & Company, we’re proud of our Louisiana heritage. We carry numerous Louisiana-themed kitchen items, ranging from gumbo bowls, oyster serving beds, and New Orleans platters to Louisiana-shaped cutting boards. There’s something for everyone in our collections:

Luggage for Their New Journey Together

Couples who love to travel will appreciate luggage tags, passport covers, makeup bags, totes, coolers, and anything that will serve them well on their honeymoon. Help them stay organized with any of these:

  • Backpacks – Backpacks are incredibly versatile, perfect for weekend getaways, camping, beach days, and even everyday shopping or errand running. Personalize the backpack with the recipient’s initials to make the gift more meaningful.
