Unique Engagement Gifts for an
Environmentally Conscious Couple

Rosa Morell

With the dark and dreary months behind us, summer soirées, beach BBQs and family functions create the perfect opportunity for a proposal. And if two lovebirds in your life announce their betrothal, you’ll want to get ahead of the game to avoid any panic purchasing. And while the obligatory bottle of bubbly is sure to suffice, I’ve rounded up seven unique engagement gifts that score a bit higher in terms of sentiment and sustainability. From custom illustrations and crafting kits to dreamy decor and date night activities, these gifts are sure to be well-received by any pair – eco-conscious or otherwise.

Vintage Cake Slice From Maison Spoon

If the happy couple is holding a cake-cutting ceremony on their big day, take one task off their list and treat them to a cake slice for the occasion. But not just any cake slice – a vintage, hand-engraved cake slice from Maison Spoon. With each as charming as the next, all you need to do is choose from her carefully curated collection, and she’ll engrave everything from heartfelt messages and dates to playful puns and innuendos in her signature cursive writing.

Paper Flower Bouquet From Pom Pom Factory 

You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t appreciate the beauty of a floral bouquet. But when you’re celebrating the prospect of everlasting love, a gift that doesn’t wilt within a week is a little more fitting. Karen Hsu, founder and creative director of Pom Pom factory, creates sustainable paper flower bouquets that will stand tall for the engagement, wedding and beyond. Starting from £30, these bountiful bouquets go to show that sustainable gifts don’t have to burn a hole in your bank balance.

Ghanaian Wax Print Notebook From Flo London

When it comes to environmentally friendly gifts, a notebook from Flo London ticks all the right boxes. Made ethically and sustainably using Ghanaian wax print fabric, this show-stopping piece of stationery is the perfect place for them to pen down any pre-wedding thoughts and ideas. And once it’s full, the vibrant, intricate print will brighten up any bookshelf.

Hand-Drawn Couple Illustration by Eleanor Joanna

If they’re suckers for all things sentimental, you can’t go wrong with a hand-drawn couple illustration. London-based artist Eleonor Joanna creates bespoke illustrations in her charming, whimsical style that make for the perfect keepsake. Pop the finished print in a frame, and you’ve got the perfect, personalised prezzie (that supports a small biz in the process).

Home Pottery Kit From Sculpd

For the crafty couples of the bunch, a Sculpd Pottery Kit is sure to scratch their creative itches. Within the kit, they’ll find everything they need for their DIY date night including clay, paint, brushes, cutting tools, and sponges. And the best part? This set makes use of planet-friendly materials, including recycled plastics and sugarcane biopolymers.

Champagne Flutes From The Recycled Glass Company

Champagne-loving couples are likely to have been gifted enough to sink a small ship. So to ensure that they have the perfect glassware for their celebratory cheersing, you can’t go wrong with some champagne flutes. The Recycled Glass Company handmakes theirs from 100% recycled glass – a win for the environmentalists who like to sip in style.

Matching Candles From Keep Candles

When discussing sustainable gifts, it would be wrong to go without spotlighting Keep Candles. This trailblazing company has made it their mission to create a sustainable candle that isn’t destined for the bin once it has burnt out. They pour their (all-natural) wax into everything from bowls, glass tumblers, egg cups and mugs so that they can be used time and time again for their new purpose. Pretty ingenious, if you ask me!
