There are few moments in a friendship that deserve to be celebrated quite like an engagement. It is the culmination of years of dating advice and commiseration after bad breakups and represents the next chapter in your friend’s life. Shopping for an engagement gift can be more difficult than for their wedding day since there is typically no registry.
Engagements are the perfect opportunity to shower your friends with quirky, fun gifts that represent your friendship and celebrate the engaged couple’s love. Here are five of the best gifts for a newly engaged friend, from hilarious socks to sweet matching face masks.

1. sock bouquet
A sock bouquet is a beautiful way to show your love for the newly engaged couple. Include an array of socks in the bouquet, from bridal party socks to funny wedding socks. Curled up in a stunning floral design and wrapped lovingly by our dedicated team of sock fairies, a sock bouquet is a unique spin on a classic bridal theme that your friend is sure to find both hilarious and heartfelt.
2. funny socks
Socks are always a hit with friends and family on special occasions. Add a little extra joy and humor to your friend's engagement with a pair of adorable toe warmers for the lucky couple. Some perfect choices for the blushing bride include:
For the sweetest engagement snaps on Instagram, give the bride-to-be a pair of these classy statement socks. With “Bride” spelled out in glittering gold letters, your gift can help your best friend feel glam on her special day.
Why not get her future husband a pair of matching socks for the perfect way to post their engagement online?
Perfect for a friend with a sense of humor, these no-show socks feature a cute-as-a-button veiled dinosaur, which hopefully reminds your bestie to have fun with the wedding planning.
If your friend has a passion for the music of Beyoncé, then she’ll love this homage to Queen B. Our Feyoncé socks are a hilarious pun on fiancé and feature a stunning diamond ring motif. Let your bestie proudly show the world that someone finally “put a ring on it.”
Figuratively raise a glass to a friend with these wonderful wine socks. Made from the perfect blend of cotton, nylon and spandex, these socks feature a pink background with wavy stripes and blossoming blue flowers.
We also have an incredible range of men’s socks, from sleek, breathable bamboo styles to hilarious socks with snarky sayings. A pair of funny socks is a great gift to give a groom-to-be when you can’t celebrate the special occasion in person.
If your friend and their betrothed love get-togethers, his & hers tote bags are the perfect gift to ensure they always have room to carry party essentials. There is something to suit every taste with fun patterns like our Beer Me tote and matching Good Things About Wine bag.
You can even try making a gift basket using the totes as a base to fill with treats you know your friends will love, from their favorite wine to chocolates to products for the two of them to enjoy at a couple’s spa day at home (perfect for those getting married in the midst of the pandemic).
Encourage the couple to celebrate safely this year by giving them a matching pair of face masks.
The Significant Otter face masks are an adorable way to keep your friends safe and show you care. The delightful mask pattern features two hugging otters, a species known to mate for life, signifying the stability of your friend’s relationship with their soon-to-be spouse.
The 2-layer mask is made from soft bio-washed cotton with a moisture-repellant rayon/linen blend outer layer. It also features a malleable metal nasal strip for the best fit.
A happy kitchen equals a happy marriage! Consider picking up some hilarious items to bring a smile to the couple’s faces while they’re whipping up meals and washing dishes for each other. For instance, an oven mitt that says, “Whatever happens, we’re eating it” is just the kind of adventurous energy that makes for a happy lifetime together. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and these items will make it that much more special — plus they’re guaranteed to NOT be on the wedding registry!
