Now let’s go deeper down the rabbit hole, shall we?

Traditional Jewish Engagement Gifts

Since a L’Chaim engagement party is a Jewish tradition, it makes sense to get the young couple a traditional Jewish engagement gift, doesn’t it?

Lucky for you – there’s no shortage of terrific Jewish gifts you can choose from…

Let me show you some of my favorites!

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum 8 Piece Kiddush Set

Top Traditional Gift

Yair Emanuel Anodized Aluminum 8 Piece Kiddush Set

The young couple will share lots of Sabbath & Jewish holidays together in their future home. That’s a LOT of Kiddush wine we’re talking about here.

Not to mention when they’ll have a bunch of guests over for Shabbat (including you!)…

They could use a proper Kiddush set, don’t you think?

But why settle for “proper”? Proper is for the distant “I’ve-never-seen-this-woman-before-in-my-life” relatives.

That’s not you… is it?

You’d probably want to go the extra yard, like the good ol’ friend you are.

And when you reach the extra yard – you’ll find Yair Emanuel’s artistic Kiddush set waiting for you.

A thoughtful, useful, and colorful Kiddush set for many more L’chayims in the future.

Amen V’Amen :)!

Silver Plated Mounted Jerusalem Shofar Tealight Candlesticks

Silver Plated Mounted Jerusalem Shofar Tealight Candlesticks

The Shofar is one of Judaism most powerful & meaningful symbols. It’s used to signify important events (like Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur).

What better way to symbolize one of the most important days in the lives of this lovely young couple?

They say when the Messiah comes, he will arrive with the sound of the Shofar.

Hopefully, the light spread by your gorgeous gift in the couple’s future home will help bring us one step closer to that day.

Danon Designer Priestly Blessing Mezuzah Case

Danon Designer Priestly Blessing Mezuzah Case

A Jewish engagement party is not just a physical celebration. It’s a spiritual celebration.

We don’t just gather together to celebrate the couple getting engaged. We gather together to celebrate two Jewish souls uniting into one.

Now, think about it… what other Jewish item shares the same unique combination of physical and spiritual?

The answer: a Mezuzah.

If you think about it – a Mezuzah is nothing more than a scroll placed inside a case. So why do Jewish people hand a Mezuzah on each door in their house?

Because the power of the Mezuzah is not physical. It’s spiritual.

We fulfill the Mitzvah of affixing a Mezuzah a sign of our spiritual belief in God and his unconditional love towards us.

Did You Know?

The words written on the parchments include Shema Yisrael – the famous prayer we recite during the morning and evening prayer service.

That’s what makes Danon’s modern Mezuzah an excellent engagement gift for a Jewish couple (especially Orthodox Jewish couples)

Not to mention the Priestly Blessing (Birkat Hacohanim) featured on the Mezuzah, which makes it even more special.

Engagement Gifts for Her

Our little sweetheart is engaged!

Time to find a L’Chaim gift that’ll make our future bride even more exciting than she already is.

Careful though – don’t spend too much money on an L’chaim engagement party gift. This isn’t her wedding night. 

Her wedding is when you actually get to “take out the big guns” and get her a truly amazing Jewish wedding gift.

10k Yellow Gold Tree of Life Necklace

Top Engagement Gift for Her

10k Yellow Gold Tree Of Life Necklace

If you thought the previous Jewish engagement gifts were “traditional” – trust me: you haven’t seen anything yet.

To call the Tree of Life a “traditional Jewish symbol” would be a huge understatement.

It’s not just any Jewish symbol – it’s one of the most ancient Kabbalistic symbols in the Jewish tradition. In fact, it’s a symbol that describes God’s creation of the world.

Tree Of Life Bahir Hebrew

Did you know?

According to the Kabbalah,  the 10 interconnected spheres (Sefirot) are formed by the spiritual connection formed between God, man, and woman:

  • God: represented by the sphere of Keter (כתר) 
  • Man: represented by the sphere of Hokhmah (חכמה)
  • Woman: represented by the sphere of Binah (בינה)

As you can see – it’s the spiritual connection between man and woman that gives birth to the rest of the spheres – which forms the entire Tree of Life. 

When it comes to a traditional Jewish engagement gift for a woman – you’d be hard-pressed to find a more appropriate gift than that.

And I haven’t even mentioned that it’s hand-crafted and made of 10K gold.

To me, that’s just a nice bonus.

Split Roman Glass & Silver Pomegranate Necklace

Split Roman Glass & Silver Pomegranate Necklace

For wedding gifts, the traditional Jewelry gifts are gold & silver.

For vort gifts? You can be a little more creative.

This beautiful, Roman Glass, pomegranate-shaped pendant includes exotic colors of blue & green, wrapped in an elegant sterling silver frame.

The pomegranate is a famous Jewish symbol that represents righteousness, richness & humility – all the elements of a successful Jewish marriage.

Like I said: creative.

Woman of Valor: Gold and Silver Pomegranates Ring

Woman of Valor: Gold and Silver Pomegranates Ring

Eishet Hayil Mi Yimtza (“Who can find a woman of valor?”) – King Solomon’s eternal song men sing to their wives every Sabbath, is what the future husband will sing every Sabbath for his fiancé for their entire life.

From now on, every time her future husband sings Eshet Hayil to her, she’ll be able to look down at her stunning handmade ring and remember the moment you gave it to her on her engagement night.

Gold Plated Engraved Love Birds Heart Necklace

Gold Plated Engraved Love Birds Heart Necklace

Look at those two lovebirds!

“Those lovebirds have names, you know”…

And guess what – you can personalize the lovebirds with bride-and-groom-to-be’s names (in either Hebrew or English)!

Honestly, if it wasn’t for the heart, I would’ve even included this lovely necklace in the Gifts for Men section. But let’s spare him the embarrassment, shall we?

Engagement Gifts for Him

He popped the question! Halleluyah! (poor woman, she waited for so long)

It was worth it!

Because now – he gets to marry the love of his life – his soul mate…and you get to celebrate this happy moment together with them.

But before you go ahead and lift him up on a chair, you should get the future groom a nice Jewish engagement gift for his L’chaim party. 

Let’s do that, shall we?

Hebrew Letters Classic Golden Watch by Adi

Top Engagement Gift for Him

Hebrew Letters Classic Golden Watch by Adi

Let’s be honest – most men (especially Jewish men) aren’t big fans of Jewelry.

But boy oh boy do they love wearing a fancy watch.

Forget Rolexes… This is a Jewish engagement party, remember?

Thankfully, Israel has been blessed with a quality watch brand as well – the “Israeli Rolex”, if you will: Adi Watches.

And guess what – they’re a fraction of the cost of a Rolex, they’re classier than a Rolex, and they’re more Jewish than a Rolex! 

That’s what I call “Mazel Tov!”

Shema Yisrael: Sterling Silver Bracelet with Gold Star of David

Shema Yisrael: Sterling Silver Bracelet with Gold Star of David

We already gave the future bride a stunning Kabbalah Jewelry gift.

What about the man? Poor boy will get jealous.

Don’t worry… the lucky man is in for a treat, and he doesn’t even know it yet.

This marvelous sterling silver bracelet includes a gold Star of David. Alongside it – the Shema Yisrael prayer written in Hebrew.

Now – every time the man could use a little spiritual uplifting, all he needs to do is look at his bracelet and recite the Shema.

There’s nothing Jewish about a Montblanc wallet.

Except… the Star of David?

What tha?! What is an Italian luxury brand doing with a Star of David? Are they Jewish?!

Jewish or not, that’s not why you should get the young man a Montblanc wallet.

You should get him a Montblanc wallet… because it’s a friggin’ Montblanc wallet! They’re an amazing gift for any young man.

Personalized Engagement Gifts

It’s not just any other person who just got engaged, is it? They mean a lot to you…

I get it…

In that case – you’d want to get them a more personal gift.

You know, a personal gift you can personalize.

And in case you’re still wondering what section is about… it’s about personalized engagement gifts.

Close friends and family members, listen up!

They say friends come and go. 

They also say gifts come and go.

But you’re not going anywhere… and neither should your engagement gift.

Let’s face it: after this night is over – in a week or two no one (including the couple) will remember it anymore. It’s unfortunate, but its true…

Unless…

Unless you give them a gift that will bring back all the memories of their special night. A keepsake you personalized just for their engagement.

That, my friend, is a gift that lasts not only for years… but for decades.

If the romance tends fades out in a few years, all they got to do is light it up again! 

And guess what – they could use the personalized candle holders you got for their engagement to do just that 🙂

And little did she know you’ll find an awesome website called Amen V’Amen, with an even awesome article written by yours truly.

Go on… personalize the couple’s new doormat. Make her day!

Unique & Creative Engagement Gifts

Why get the young engaged couple another boring gift, if you can get them a unique & creative L’Chaim gift?

Think about it – most of the other guests will probably get traditional Jewish L’Chaim gifts for the Jewish couple (especially if you’re invited to an Orthodox Jewish engagement party)

But you? You’re not like every other guest…

So why would you get them the same gift as everyone else?

But here’s the thing… being a great hostess isn’t just about opening your home to guests and serving food. You also need to open your heart and host everyone with love and care.

Thanks to her new hand-painted laser-cut bowl (and thanks to you), she’ll be able to do just that.

David Gerstein Signed Sculpture – Spring Ride

David Gerstein Signed Sculpture – Spring Ride

The young couple is about to embark on the ride of their lives together.

And what a great reminder that is to have David Gerstein’s colorful Spring Ride sculpture sitting on your shelf at your new home.

There’s an incredibly valuable message hidden in this sculpture.

Sometimes life will seem like an uphill road. There will be challenges, roadblocks, and difficulties on the way up the mountain… Once you reach the peak of the mountain – that’s when things get easier and the ride becomes smoother.

You have to stick together through the hardships – in order to enjoy and appreciate the fun parts. That’s what love is all about.

Tip: Just make sure to tell the husband to look straight at the road… otherwise, that’s just careless.

Guess what: the couple can stop searching. They finally found each other.

And now – you can give them a beautiful art frame they can hang as proof.

An engagement gift for cool, young couples…that is if they have a sense of humor.

By no means does this mean that the man * has * to drink beer and the girl * has * to drink wine.

In fact, who said the man can’t be queen and enjoy a nice glass of wine? And who the hell said girls can’t be kings and shouldn’t drink beer while watching a football game?!

That’s just sexist! (kidding. See, that’s funny)
