Engagement Gift?

I need ideas for an engagement gift for a couple whose wedding I'm in.  Do people usually buy off the registry?  I can't remember the etiquette.

 Thanks!

  • How about a fancy bottle of wine or champagne?

    I received wine/champagne or crystal stuff like Waterford vases, pitchers, bowls, silver pieces etc. when i got engaged.  It was too early for me to have put together a registry.

  • It is not traditionally expected etiquette-wise to buy an engagement gift, especially for an engagement party, so I wouldn't stress about it! If you are in the wedding you will have plenty of opportunities to give them gifts.

    If you want to give them something anyway, I am sure they would love wine or champagne. Or maybe gourmet chocolates if they don't drink.
