DIY | Engagement Basket for a Friend

I am officially at the age where all my friends are either 1. in serious relationships, 2. engaged or married. or 3. having kids. Which don't get me wrong is not a bad thing at all! I love this age and being able to experience it all with my best friends!

One of my friends recently got engaged and I wanted to do something special for her. Since I recently just went through the same process I thought it would be awesome to put together a 'engagement basket' for her!
Considering I am fairly new to the engagement/newlywed faze, I thought of a few things that I loved during my engagement time!

A count down frame is perfect to keep you up to date on how many days til Mrs.!

Mug for all those pinterest surfing mornings (maybe turned into nights) or perhaps to put a little something stronger then coffee in!

A ticket to a local bridal show in your area is always fun. Even if the wedding is not in this particular area, there will be tons of vendors and even freebies!! 

Something I loved when I started planning my wedding (besides Pinterest of course) was all the great wedding magazines

My now mother in law also bought me a very similar wedding instruction manual book. I was able to write down thoughts I had through the whole process and it had great tips and ideas!

Lastly, don't forget to write your future bride to be a sincere card. It's a busy time and let her know you are there for her.. whether you are in the bridal party or not!



So do you have an friends getting married soon? Are you doing anything special for them?
