Haute Toast
Your newly engaged friends have one thing in mind–celebrating. They'd rather enjoy the moment than answer the litany of questions coming their way about their venue, date, honeymoon and overall wedding planning. Give them a bottle of bubbles they likely would never splurge on themselves to enjoy at home for date night, or with close family and friends. Dom Perignon P2 Vintage, approximately $545, danmurphys.com.au.

Gift your friends with flowers—that last all year long. Life-like peonies in a modernist glass cube will adorn their space (or hers) for the span of their engagement, and for years to come.

Chic Sleepers

His-and-hers pajamas are a sweet token for those couples moving in together, and a subtle nod that you acknowledge the newly betrothed's need for some R&R after all the engagement festivities and fodder.

Take Notes

Your newly engaged friends are about to have to send some thank you notes–lots of thank you notes. Give them a head start by gifting beautifully designed cards with their monogram, or a cheeky set like these emoji cards. Odds are, ordering personalized note cards aren't at the top of their to-do list.

AGENT PROVOCATEUR

While bridal showers tend to be the source of one too many lingerie gifts, sending your friend and the bride-to-be a little something sexy for her engagement will help her own the confidence she is undoubtedly feeling as a soon to be wife. Rather than a bra and panty set, consider a sheer bodysuit–she can wear them under a perfectly tailored jacket for a night out, as well as at home.

Breakfast in Bed
West Elm

Your friends probably have their way of preparing coffee each morning, but it's likely not as chic as this metallic French press. Start off your string of gift giving with something affordable for you, and luxurious in feel.

Gifting in theme is both memorable and thoughtful, so snag the cups and saucers off their registry and add in a bag of artisan coffee beans for their wedding gift.
