Just Engaged Gift Basket - DIY gift ideas

Has it been engagement season this entire year or is it just me? The excitement for your dear friend is floating in the air and this is the perfect time to extend their “high”. I love DIY gift baskets because you can never go wrong with the gift - it’s all their favorite things or perhaps it’s something to excite whatever the celebration is.

Here are a few ideas to help you stuff your DIY basket:

Le Grand Courtage Bubbly. Cheers to this exciting time with a mini bottle of bubbles. The size is perfect for a small DIY gift basket and can be zhooshed up with ribbon or sparkles.

Something Sweet. Twirl Cotton Candy in Strawberry Champagne was another sweet treat that combined with your bubbly is the perfect cheers to a celebration.

Neutral nail polish. You definitely have to keep your manicure on point and having some neutral colors to show off that ring will do just the trick. How cute is it to even find colors with names “Eternal” and “Love”? That’s a win!

A celebratory candle. I personally have a few signature scents I have adopted that no only fits the theme but smells AMAZING. “Champagne Toast” is the perfect scent to instill another memory of this happy time. Scent is an amazing memory trigger so make it a good one!

A novelty item. My friend’s new last name happens to be “Almond” and what would be better than to give her a laugh. She got her tall chocolate man with almonds. There are so many ways you can have a play on words - adding a bag of popcorn “he popped the question” or pack of mints “mint to be together” or matches/lighter “match made in heaven or you light his life on fire.” One thing with the novelty is that it doesn’t have such a deep meaning - just playful and fun. I guarantee that will put a smile on her face!

Magazine. Although it may take some time and planning, I’m sure she already has her Pinterest board in full swing. Why not create your own real life inspiration wedding poster with some of your city’s local wedding magazine? Great way to locate vendors, gain inspiration and to finally do some “research” to see what the new trends are.

Be sure you pack all your goodies in a cute crate - add some ribbon, glitter/confetti and tissue paper to turn it into a gift and not just a storage container.

Don’t forget to save this information for later when your next girlfriend get’s “asked the question”. Perhaps you may want to send it to your friends too as a hint just in case you are next on the engagement list. I would love to see you on Pinterest.
