    My step-sister and her boyfriend have recently got engaged and their engagement party is on Friday. I have no idea what to buy them as an engagement present? Something around £20-25. Any ideas?

    engraved champagne glasses. That's what we got for ours - one has my name on, and the other has my husband's name on. They're very nice.

    Thanks for the advice. I was initially going to get that but decided against it as I think a few people might get them something like that.

    Instead, I got them a set of 3 stainless steel pots since they've just started renting a flat and have a lack of pots! :p:

    Erm pots are great and everything..... but what are you going to get the boyfriend?

    Might I suggest a remote controlled helicopter or decent lightsaber like this:

    These are the gifts I'd expect if it were from people that cared about me.
    I guess you just don't care about your sisters fiances' happiness OP. I am disappoint.

    Well its a joint present so I'm sure he'll be happy with the pots too! :p:

    I'll keep the lightsaber idea in mind when I'm choosing their wedding present in a few years time.

    Joking...kinda.
    What would the pots be for? Could you plant something in them so they're not empty pots.

    Haha no! They aren't plant pots...they're normal kitchen pots (that you use for cooking!) :lol:

    Hehe.
    Shame, I thought you might be going for the symbolism of a new flower blossoming.
    Which could have backfired terribly if the plants died.
