Eek! Your sister just got engaged! When someone so close to you says the biggest "yes" of their life, you're probably itching to find something special to celebrate the occasion. Hunting for an engagement gift for your sister that accurately captures your joy and excitement for her as she embarks on this new chapter can feel tricky. They likely don't have a registry yet (unless they're hyper-organized) and they also probably don't have any major wedding plans set in stone. Use this freedom to your advantage and have a little fun. You can get something just for your sister or for both members of the couple, you can get something related to wedding planning (or even her new bling) or just something you know your sister will love and appreciate. Whichever direction you want to go in, we've curated the best engagement gift ideas for your sister with every budget in mind.
