If you’re anything like me, you wont stop patrolling the Internet until you’ve found that absolutely perfect present – whether it be for a birthday, anniversary, or Festivus – but there’s a specific challenge to finding the right wedding and engagement gift. The reasons are numerous and the most obvious being that you’re shopping for two instead of one, but it’s also the excitement and high levels of emotion associated with what is hopefully a once in a lifetime affair.

The task of finding an unique engagement gift is so much easier if the couple has been together for longer, and even better, if they already live together and have merged some of their tastes. No present search was as time-intensive than the groom who loved the home décor style of a mountain hunting lodge and the bride who had a special infinity towards French shabby chic. I think I settled on a set of baskets, but it wasn’t my finest gift giving experience.
