Another day, another newly engaged couple flashes a rock on Instagram. But just because their caption is cliché (“can’t wait to spend forever with this one!”), doesn’t mean your engagement gift has to be. An engagement gift box is a great way to tailor your contribution to the couple’s personalities and pack a lot of celebrations into one package with options for lovers who love to travel or cook their evenings together. Still, with so many options on the market and so little time, we’ve rounded up seven great engagement gift boxes to send to newly engaged couples.
1. A gift box designed to make their love grow
If only a relationship were as easy to maintain as a succulent.
This gift box from Etsy seller The Whispering Nature lets you add a personal touch to items like a sweet ceramic ring platter with the happy couple’s initials. The package also comes with a mini succulent plant (fun fact: succulents are nearly impossible to kill, so if they break the engagement, at least their love plant will last), a planter with the words “grow love”, a custom-made matchbox, and a lavender-vanilla soy candle.

Because not every couple is a Mr and Mrs.
This Happily Ever After gift box (it turns out to be a popular theme; who knew?) can be personalized for same-sex couples. Whether your couple is a Mr and Mrs, a Mrs and a Mrs, or a Mr and Mr, they will get a set of mugs marked accordingly. Packaged in a pretty pine box that they can reuse, this gift box also comes with a “happily ever after” tea towel, a bag of organic gourmet cookies, and a hand-poured soy candle in a fern and moss scent.

Not for lactose intolerance.
Cheese, please! How much cheese is too much cheese? The limit does not exist. If the newly engaged couple agrees with that sentiment, this might be their gift. Harry & David’s Gourmet Cheese Gift delivers a package filled with a nutty Sartori BellaVitano Gold cheese, Rogue Creamery Oregon blue cheese, sharp white cheddar, and creamy Gouda right to their door. They get bonus noshes, including mixed nuts, an assortment of dried fruits, and a bottle of pinot noir.

Taste the good life.
These days, when most of us hear the word “caviar,” we think of the food delivery app that sends tacos to our bank every Tuesday. But those with more discerning palates will appreciate this deluxe gift box with the real deal. It comes with three 1-ounce cans of decadent, high-end Sassanid caviar and two mother-of-pearl spoons, which the couple can sensually feed to each other. Hey, one couple’s salty fish eggs are the ultimate delicacy for another.

5. A gift basket to transport the lovebirds to Paris
Passport not included.
If you’re a strict adherent of the rom-com canon, there’s almost nothing more romantic than being proposed to in Paris. Consider this the best if the couple in question didn’t make it to the Eiffel Tower to ask the question. The A Taste of France gift basket is packed with snacks alluding to the City of Light, including three types of cheeses, French waffle crackers, fig jam, and more gourmet treats.
