    I have to attend an engagement soon and another wedding (different couple) in USA. This is the first time am attending here overseas, any good ideas for the gifts for engagement and wedding. For the couple whom we are attending the engagement, we may not be attending the marriage as it is in a different location, so need to consider that and gift them. Please share your thoughts.

    For the engagement they did not create a registry, for wedding they said no boxed gifts.

    Then for wedding I would give a gift card.
    For engagement you can give them a household item like a nice crystal vase.

    Thank you, , what is a good range for gift card to give, not sure how much is too low , is 101 considered low? Should we make it 200$?

    If you are close to the couple and can comfortably afford it then you can give $200. If not then $100 is fine.

    It all depends upon what is your budget of gifting nd the degree of your closeness with that couple.
    1. Engagement:
    If you can afford and the couple or one of them is very close to you consider gifting a a gold chain / small earrings or pendant whatever in your chosen budget.
    Other option is gift sterling silver pooja thali set or maybe branded couple smart watches.

    2. Wedding of different couple :
    Same you can choose gold/silver items as per budget.
    Other option - coffee maker/ home decor/ antiques/ couple smart watches/ couple branded perfume set/ personalised frames/
