Back again today with a fab selection of gifts for another type of bride… the newly-engaged bride to be! When your bestie first gets engaged, it's only natural to want to shower her with some new-bride gifties! One of my favorite sources for gifts for any occasion is Etsy — they've literally got Something For Everyone! I would hope that y'all are already familiar with the online craft marketplace mecca that is Etsy, but seriously — it's the best! I first became familiar with the site when I was planning my own wedding back in 2008… I even got the jewelry I wore on my big day from an Etsy seller!
So whenever I need a unique or personal gift for someone in my life I always love to peruse the virtual aisles of Etsy in search of something meaningful and creative. For today's post, I decided to round up some unique and creative ideas that you might want to give one of your newly engaged friends to celebrate her exciting news! Hope you love this list of Gifts for the Newly Engaged Bride and find something to add to your go-to engagement gift list.

Whether the bride-to-be is a planner person or a wine person, there are so many great stickers available for purchase from different Etsy sellers. You could purchase these adorable Planner Stickers for the bride to be to mark special date countdowns on their planner – they're super inexpensive and a fun little treat. Is the bride more of a wino? Give her a bottle of her favorite wine and add a custom wine label congratulating her on her exciting news!

Want to gift your newly engaged pal something that she can wear? I love the variety of tees and shirts available from Etsy to show off their newly engaged status! Another great wearable gift is cute floral robes that are super trendy at the moment. And then of course, who doesn't love a cute tote bag featuring your future last name on it?
