  • Have they been together a long time, or a short while?

  • Are they religious, or would they prefer something a bit more secular?
  • Do they have children and/or pets?

Once you’ve established the kind of gift your friends (or your own fiancé!) would like the most, it’s time to get shopping! Don’t worry, we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you. Read on for 20 traditional engagement gifts that they will adore almost as much as they adore one another. Awwww!
