      I don't think you are expected to bring anything to an engagement party, but lots of people bring something small - maybe a bottle of champagne. You might inquire if the couple is registered anywhere and get them something small from their registry if you really want to bring a gift.

            We just had ours and didn't expect anything. Most people did show up with a small gift though. We got lots of wine & candles, which was great considering we are not registered anywhere! We also got some cool Z-Stem Martini Glasses which I love:

            We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

              I have taken a bottle of champagne or bought something small if they are registered. I have also bought bride guide books or bride magazines. Hope this helps:)

                I always bring a gift to any type of 'celebration' party - I personally think it is rude to go empty handed.

                our families had an engagement party for us in December and there were approx 40 people - every single one brough a gift (we didn't expect them) - most were from our registries, a lot of cool restaurant gift cards too.

                i would say to bring a gift or a bottle of champagne if they are drinkers -it doesn't have to be expensive but a little something!

                  I personally would not bring a gift becuase I think it gets to be a bit much when you buy a couple an engagement gift, shower gift and wedding gift.

                    I think you are expected to give a gift at an engagement party. That's why I specifically told everyone I don't want one. The gift giving for weddings is getting out of control. What can you do though. I agree with the others...just get something small from the registry or a bottle of wine.

                      You aren't required to bring anything to an e party but here are some things that I got: a bottle of wine, a wedding planning book, a picture frame, gift cards to target and bed bath and beyond, plates, cups, etc.
