Romantic Last-Minute Engagement Gift Ideas

What an exciting time in life when your friends, children or relatives get engaged. Marking the beginning of their life together, getting engaged is one of the most exciting events in life. And in anticipation of their engagement party, or just to say congratulations, it can be hard to find the perfect gift for this milestone event. 

In this article, we list our top 10 gift ideas that are perfect for the newly engaged couple in your life. The best part? All experience gifts mentioned are sent instantly to your email - so they’ll never know it was last minute! 

1. A Romantic Getaway for Two

Your special gift will allow the happy couple to soak up some quality time together, away from the responsibilities of home. On their short getaway together they can explore a new city, relax at a beach resort or wander through the countryside. 

Gifting Owl getaway gifts come in one or two night stays, with some added extras like breakfast included in some premium packages. Simply select a destination you know they’d love to visit and send the voucher directly to them. It’s the perfect last-minute gift that can also be exchanged for another destination or experience if they wish. 

From New Zealand’s adventure capital, Queenstown, to Western Australia’s pristine beaches, there’s a getaway or staycation package to suit every type of couple. 

2. Hot Air Ballooning

An experience as romantic as they come, the loved-up couple will have more than their heads in the clouds on a hot air balloon ride. This once in a lifetime experience is unlike anything else. A quiet, serene moment where the two of them drift higher and take in the 360 degree views from above. 

After their hot air balloon ride they’ll enjoy a glass of bubbles and a delicious breakfast, while they reminisce on the unforgettable experience they just shared. 

3. Winery & Vineyard Picnics

An engagement is certainly something to cheers about - so why not gift a private wine tasting experience for the two love birds to enjoy at their own pace? The newly-engaged couple will enjoy a vineyard tour and tasting where they’ll get to learn more about the wines they love.

After a private tour of the vineyard, they can sit back with their favourite drop and plan their fun-filled lives together. 

4. High Tea for Two

Help them celebrate their engagement in a style with a high tea for two. After getting dressed to the nines, the beautiful couple are in for an afternoon of decadent treats. Indulge in morsels of sweet and savory bites such as scones, cupcakes, sandwiches, tarts and more. As the name suggests, they can pair their delicious treats with tea, or a bottle of bubbles if they wish!

5. Sailing and Cruising 

For couples close to the ocean, a sailing experience for two is the perfect engagement gift idea. Just picture them on the bow of the ship, Rose and Jack style, as they set sail together. Choose to include a lunch or dinner option for an extra special touch. Or if it’s whale watching season, they might even get some extra entertainment! 

6. A Private Photo Shoot

Notice they don’t have any high quality photos together? Give them a gift that’ll mark this special time in their lives together - a professional engagement photoshoot. The photographer will take them to a picturesque location and capture beautiful moments between the newly engaged couple. 

7. Helicopter Ride

On a scenic helicopter ride they’ll get to see the sites in style. An exhilarating experience for first-time flyers, they’ll slowly hover off the ground before charging forward to their destination. If they’ve got a big honeymoon or special trip coming up, consider a helicopter ride that’ll make their getaway extra special! From flights over the Grand Canyon to soaring over the Great Barrier Reef, there’s plenty of destinations on offer on Gifting Owl. 

8. Scuba Diving

Are the newly engaged couple always chasing their next adventure? Gift them their next unforgettable experience for them to try for the first time together. Consider experiences like an intro to scuba diving, stand up paddleboarding or surfing lessons. The perfect gift for the adventurous couple in your life, they’ll love the thought you put into finding a gift that suits them to a tee! 

9. Spa Day

If the newly engaged couple hasn’t had a chance to sit back, relax and take in their engagement, a spa day is the perfect experience gift. Don’t let their busy lives overshadow the big commitment they’ve just made to each other. On their spa day they can enjoy couples massages, facials, scrubs and baths. They’ll leave feeling refreshed and all loved up! 

10. A bucket list travel experience

Now here’s a gift idea that’s perfect for the explorers! If the loved up couple likes to roam the globe, exploring different places and cultures, then a travel experience is the perfect engagement gift. With the upcoming expenses of a wedding, they’ve probably hit the brakes on unnecessary spending. That’s where your travel gift card comes in handy. 

If you know they’ve always wanted to see the northern lights in Iceland, get a photo under the Eiffel Tower or visit the Statue of Liberty, why not make that their engagement gift? Whether they use their travel gift voucher on their honeymoon, or they go on a spontaneous trip in the meantime, they’re sure to send you pictures of their once-in-a-lifetime experience that you made happen. A Gifting Owl travel gift voucher is a great flexible way to give a gift to the happy couple. With 3 years validity, free exchanges and worldwide experiences, they’re guaranteed to book something they really want to do. 

Let them choose!

When there are so many options you’re sure the happy couple will love, how can you choose just one? Let them decide which experience or getaway they’d like and purchase a Gifting Owl gift voucher. Valid worldwide for 3 years, they’ll have plenty of time to book an experience to celebrate their engagement! 

No matter what gift you chose to give on their engagement, the most important thing is your love and support. Best wishes to the happy couple embark on their lives together.
