Did you know that almost 40% of couples get engaged between the start of December and Valentine’s Day? Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve are among the most popular days for couples to commit, with the holiday spirit making everyone feel the love.
If you’re looking for the perfect engagement gift, why not consider something Fair Trade? Whether you’re looking for a classic gift or something a little more unusual, make your gift even more memorable by making it one handmade by skilled artisans, paid fairly for the love and care they put into creating it.
To help you find something they’ll cherish for years to come, we’ve created a dedicated category for Wedding & Engagement gifts. Head over to explore, or discover this selection of our top picks.
Personalise this gin or cheese board with their engagement date, planned wedding date, names, or a message of congratulations. The perfect gift for those sure to be having a good few get togethers and many more nights in in their wedded bliss. Choose from 2 sizes, or go for a rectangular shape, each hand carved from highly sustainable mango wood.
This folding frame is hand crafted from recycled glass and metal. Each one can hold up to 4 different photos, making it a great way to document their favourite moments right up to their wedding day. They could even use it for something a little more creative, like holding keepsakes from their travels, tickets from special dates, or pressed petals from a memorable bouquet.
Every couple needs the perfect journal to plan the wedding they’ve always dreamed of. This one is filled with paper handmade from recycled cotton, with a cover crafted from a beautiful sari fabric. And when it’s full, it makes a beautiful keepsake to remember the special (and perhaps just a little stressful) days before their big day. If pink isn’t their colour, you can choose from 6 different vibrant jewel tones.
A great gift for all couples, our personalised heart keyrings are hand crafted from recycled leather. You can choose any personalisation of your choice, but we love this matching ‘Mr & Mrs’ set. Choose from black, gold or silver foils to give it a little extra shine, or go for blind embossing for something more subtle.
A thoughtful gift for the happy couple, our photo albums are filled with handmade paper crafted from recycled cotton. Personalise the cover with their names, the planned date of their wedding, or “Guestbook”, so they can use it as a guestbook for their special day. They’ll appreciate having something ticked off the wedding organisation early, and it’ll make an even more memorable gift when it’s filled with the well wishes of their loved ones.
