Congrats on your engagement! Now that you're getting ready to tie the knot, you're not just shopping for your boyfriend or girlfriend anymore—you've officially leveled up to fiancés.

Nothing will show your future spouse how excited you are for the big day more than a pair of gorgeous vow books adorned with the romantic phrase, "The best is yet to come." Each book has 14 ruled pages, inspirational quotes to help jumpstart your creativity and an attached envelope to include a love note for your first anniversary.

This sweet little gadget hooks up to an app where you can type messages to your other half. Once you send one, the box's heart will spin, letting your S.O. know when they've received a note. From there, they simply need to open the lid to reveal what's on the screen. Texts are great, but this feels way more special, especially if you and your fiancé often spend time apart.

6. An Indoor Smart Garden

We've yet to meet anyone who isn't excited by Click & Grow's indoor smart gardens. They automate plant care—from watering to light—to make growing herbs, veggies or flowers easier than ever. Gift your fiancé the starter set (which comes with basil seed pods), or browse over 75 plant varieties to help them grow their favorite produce. It's a thoughtful holiday or birthday gift that keeps on giving—even if they don't have a green thumb!

Whether your S.O. needs a little help sleeping (and a break from those pre-wedding nerves!) or just has a regular self-care routine, they'll love this restorative eye mask. Not only is it made from Lunya's signature washable silk for a lavish feel, but it's also weighted for added relaxation and (hopefully) a deeper sleep. One more bonus: Because it's filled with sustainable glass beads, it can be popped into the freezer for a cooling and depuffing treatment. It's a great holiday or birthday present for your fiancé that they can use all year round.

8. A Fill-in-the-Blank Book
