The question is, where do you go from here? Knowing how to send engagement congratulations can require the proper etiquette and creativity on your part, but sometimes it's difficult knowing exactly how you should proceed.
In regards to the rules of official wedding engagement etiquette, you don't necessarily have to give the couple an engagement gift. The only time that a gift is really expected is if you are attending an engagement party, or a wedding shower down the road.
However, if you are attending an engagement party, or if you want to purchase them an engagement congratulations gift anyway, you can. Popular engagement gifts include:
If you don't want to purchase the couple an engagement congratulations gift right now, then a simple card reading "congratulations" is recommended. This way, the couple knows that you are thinking of them, and you have effectively conveyed your happy feelings for the occasion.
If you are close to the couple, however, then you might want to consider throwing them an engagement party yourself. Some couples get so wrapped up in the big moment and in the planning of the wedding that they forget to have an engagement party, and taking the time to plan one for them yourself can be very thoughtful, as well as greatly appreciated.
