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. No matter the occasion, choosing a gift for your fiancé deserves a little extra thought in honor of this special and romantic time in your lives. But don't let that worry you—we've done a little digging on your behalf to find the best gifts to give your fiancé for every occasion—think Christmas, their birthday, or even the anniversary of your engagement.

While there are tons of gift guides out there for husbands and wives that'll work perfectly well for your fiancé as well, being engaged is a unique stage in your relationship. It's totally normal to want to choose a gift that really reflects such a status. Of course, this probably isn't your first time exchanging presents. If your creativity is running low after numerous birthdays, Valentine's Days and holidays spent together, we've got you. There's something on our list for every personality and style, as well as for every occasion.

1. Custom Artwork That Everyone Will "Aww" Over

Intersection of Love custom wall print gift for fiancé

Commemorate the moment you first met your fiancé—and your upcoming nuptials—with this adorable art piece that turns both dates and your names into intersecting street signs. It comes in a colored or black and white print, with the option to have it framed (which we recommend). It'll serve as a talking piece for years to come.

2. Beautiful Vow Books

Set of two vow books gift for fiancé

Nothing will show your fiancé 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.

3. A Way to Track Your Travels

Canvas map of the world art with push pins for tracking travels gift for fiancé

If you plan on seeing the world together, we've found the perfect way to keep tabs on your adventures. This world map doubles as a beautiful piece of home decor. It comes with push pins so you can easily mark the countries you've traversed already (or use them to pinpoint the places you want to go next—like your honeymoon). The ready-to-display canvas comes in four different sizes, so there's bound to be one that works for your space.

4. A Digital Love Note

Digital love note heart messenger gift for fiance

This sweet little gadget hooks up to an app where you can type messages to your other half. Send one and the box's heart will spin, letting your S.O. know when they've received a note. From there, they simply open the lid to reveal what's on the screen. Texts are great, but this feels way more special—especially as a long-distance relationship gift.

5. A Book of Adventurous Date Ideas

The Adventure Challenge: Couple's Edition book gift for fiancé

Wedding planning can be time-consuming, so it's not surprising if you have been less focused on arranging creative date nights. Fortunately, the couple's edition of The Adventure Challenge will help you spend quality time with your fiancé without too much forethought. This clever book will add an air of spontaneity to your dates with 50 scratch-off ideas. But there's a catch: You have to commit to an activity before you reveal what it is. Grab the Couple's Camera Set to add polaroid pictures to each adventure. Then, once you've completed everything, the book doubles as a meaningful memory journal. (Psst, use THEKNOT10 to get 10% off sitewide.)

6. A Fairytale-Worthy Rose

Galaxy rose in glass dome gift for fiancé

What better way to celebrate the beginning of your happily ever after than with a bloom straight out of a Disney fairytale? This Beauty and the Beast-inspired glass dome houses a stunning iridescent rose with a gold stem and colorful fairy lights for a romantic testament to your storybook love.

7. Cute Coffee Mugs

Love You and Love You More coffee mug gift set for fiance

This simple gift for your fiancé is something you can also enjoy. It's a set of coordinating coffee mugs that read "love you" and "love you more" in romantic cursive lettering. (Awwh!) The polished gold rims add a chic finishing touch that'll most definitely elevate your countertops. Just be warned that these mugs probably won't settle the ongoing argument of who loves who more.

8. Elevated Loungewear

10. A Handy Bath Caddy

Wooden bath caddy

Make long days of wedding planning a little easier with this ingenious bath accessory. This free-standing bath caddy tray features a slatted design that allows water to pass through easily, while the raised bottom prevents it from coming in direct contact with the wet bathroom floor or bathtub surface.

11. A Wedding Day-Worthy Robe

The fabric is temperature regulating for extra comfort, while the short kimono sleeves and hemline are decorated with lace for extra romance. It's the kind of luxurious gift that'll really wow your fiancé on any occasion, whether it's their birthday or Valentine's Day.
