The Perfect Gift for the Recently Engaged

For my birthday, my best friend Kaylin sent me the loveliest gift. It was a gift that someone else had gotten her when she was engaged and she loved it so much, she continued the tradition. It is perfection.

Engagement Present - Engraved Necklace

This is our wedding date. Isn’t this just the most fabulous idea? She got me this one from Stella & Dot but I’m sure there are lots of shops on Etsy that sell similar items also.

I just thought I’d share because it was the perfect gift for my birthday this week and now it’ll be easy to answer the question “so when’s the big day?”

This would also be a fabulous idea for a new momma!

We’re driving to Maine tonight. If you’d like to try to talk me out of it, tweet at me. Otherwise, I’ll spend the weekend live tweeting a blizzard. FUN.

  • A good friend of mine has the same thing but with roman numerals. I’m super jealous it’s such a good idea! Maybe for an anniversary.

  • A very thoughtful girlfriend of mine gave me a similar necklace the night before my wedding – the date is in roman numerals. It is so delicate & beautiful – I wear it often!

  • Lovely! You know what else is a cute gift? Wedding coordinates on a necklace! My friend got me one that had the coordinates for our Maui wedding. I love it!

  • Oh my gosh, such a fun idea! I’ve seen similar necklaces with coordinates, but I love the idea of a specific date!

  • That is absolutely beautiful! I’ve been married for almost 3 years and would still love something like that. Someone got you a really good birthday gift! 🙂

  • Aw, that is the sweetest gift ever! I love it!

  • Very nice

  • What a cute necklace, I love it!

  • Wow that is just such a sweet idea! Definitely adding this to my ‘someday’ list xx

  • Oh my goodness, SO pretty, that is such a great idea!

  • What a sweet idea! I love it! I need one!

  • what a perfect gift! would be great for a guy to get for his lady for an anniversary too. good luck with the cold and snow!

  • My husband got me this for Christmas (after some serious hinting) and I love it! So perfectly dainty, and awesome for layering!

  • This is so cute! My only problem is that I love all of our dates, and want to remember them ALL!
    08.17.09 first met, 10.10.09 started dating, 03.14.13 got engaged, 05.03.14 MARRIED!
    Here’s to enjoying the journey!

  • I have an identical one on RIGHT THIS INSTANT. It has our wedding date, just the numbers, but I wish, so desperately, that I’d chosen to go with Roman numerals because our date is a mirror image. IX.X.XI. Like, WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?!?

  • Such a thoughtful gift!
