Stocking a new home from the bottom up is no small feat for a newly engaged couple, and a classic, tried-and-true gift (with some personal edge) provides tons of mileage where it counts. Sure, you could be that standout guest who delivers a delightfully eccentric present. But, if the happy couple is moving into a brand-new place, they're likely in serious need of staples.
So, in the name of tradition, we rounded up the very best of the most timeless engagement gifts — from photo frames and monogrammed towels to dinnerware sets and personalized coasters — that prove much more useful than that cheese-of-the-month-club membership. Trust, with our picks ahead, it's the quality of the offerings that'll put you on a pedestal.
