Ideas for an Engagement Gift for a Boyfriend

Monica PatrickSeptember 24, 2010


An engagement period is laden with busy preparations, and your fiance may begin to feel underappreciated or stressed during this time. Shower your boyfriend with the occasional gift, or at least one good engagement gift, to remind him of your love and commitment. A carefully selected engagement gift can surprise him and fan the flames of your romance.

Golfing Goodies

Encourage your boyfriend to spend some time on the links to relax. Give him golfing gifts he can use every time he hits the country club. The Golfer's Cooler Bag from RedEnvelope has an insulated liner and is made of easy-to-clean nylon microfiber. This stylish bag will keep his favorite beverages cool and store his golf balls, radio and cell phone all in one place. Have this brown and green bag monogrammed with his initials. This roomy bag holds 12 cans and several ice packs. Alternatively, buy him an instructional DVD and digital swing kit to help him work on his chop. Gift certificates for some golfing instruction or a gift card he can redeem at his favorite golf shop are also good gifts.

Traveling Man

Keep his mind on your next trip or your honeymoon. The Leather Excursion Travel Wallet can easily hold your passports, airline tickets and your wedding cash. The inside of this traveler's wallet is made of canvas with leather and metal closures. Have his initials engraved on the plaque that comes with this nifty carrier. Alternatively, purchase a passport cover in leather or suede that fits neatly inside his jacket pocket.


Masculine-looking leather makes a sturdy gift for men. Give your boyfriend a soft leather jacket to wear as part of a trendy fall ensemble. A fitted black leather motorcycle jacket with a standup collar looks nice with blue jeans. Pick a jacket that has deep front pockets and easy-to-snap button closures. Black Italian jackets make a nice choice for the man you love. For the casual guy, buy a suede jacket in light or dark brown. Include a leather care kit so he can preserve his jacket's luster. A leather gym bag engraved with his initials will keep him organized when he hits the gym.
