Tying the knot

A handy (and definitive) list of gift ideas if everyone you know is getting engaged

You’re sorted.

IF YOU’RE CURRENTLY at a stage in your life where photos of engagement rings feature as frequently on your newsfeed as Friday night boomerangs, then it’s likely you’ve given more than a passing thought to the purchase of engagement presents.

While it’s definitely not expected for every couple who decide to tie the knot, most of us like to mark the occasion when it comes to our closer friends and family.

And the older you get, the more regularly you need to consider it.

But – and we’re with you here – some engagement presents can look a little too, you know, formal.

Thankfully, retailers have upped their game in recent years, and there are hundreds of gifts that will do the job once that Engagement Party notification hits your Facebook Event list.

And we’ve picked some just of our favourites.
