    I love the idea of a ring holder, very classic and needed.

    I also love, love the idea about the invite. I hope someone does that for me. :)

      Difficult because we don't do stuff like that over here lol

      How about something she would never buy for herself but would love it, or a pic of all the girls in a frame and all signed - that would be cool

        I got The Newlywed game for an engagement present. it has been a lot of fun - get to learn new stuff about the other person.

        i also got some wedding planning books.

        I think some wedding magazines would be cool in there too. I know I was super excited to star looking through those as soon as we got engaged. In fact I bought one the very next day!

        Also, have liked everything with my new initials on it.

              The best gift I got (actually it was a wedding gift) was a digital picture frame. It holds 3000 pictures and I decided to make it my "wedding picture frame." And considering I have over 2400 pictures b/w what Juan Carlos gave us and what my friends and family gave us, it's perfect!!!

                My absolute fave were the Tiffany champagne flutes David got for our engagement. Obv they were extra special since he bought them specifically for that, brought them to the hotel w/ us etc. But all the same, I LOVE them and we made sure to use them to toast at our wedding, and we've toasted with them each anniversary too. Also, that whole "blue box thrill" goes a long way towards making a gift extra fun IMO. :-)

                Going along w/ the champ. flute idea...a bottle of nice champagne is always fun too. It's a fun splurge since most people don't tend to buy top-of-the-line for themselves on a regular basis. I've always thought this was a fun giftset and have been wanting an excuse to buy it for someone...

                I also agree w/ Tara's wedding mag idea. I was SOOOOOO excited to go out and buy wedding mags after we got engaged. So I say throw a couple of the biggest, fatest mags you can find in there. Or get her a subscription to Martha Stewart Weddings or something like that.

                If she's the girly, sentimental type...who happens to be planning to take her FI's name after the wedding...some new stationery, cards or notepad w/ her new initial on it would be fun. I was a BIG fan of the new monogram and my new last initial so I loved all that stuff!

                  Lol! Just realized Tara wrote that idea too! Apparently we have similar "likes"! :-)

                      Of course I am late to this thread, hehe, but here are a couple of my faves, they don't really apply to an engagement party though:

                      Shower: MOH embellished some white thong sandals

                      Unique wedding present: A tree planted in our yard.
