Engagement is a special milestone that hopefully occurs once in a lifetime for some people while others a couple of time. But either ways, it should be a special moment in every persons life, be it a man or a woman. It becomes the responsibility of the family and friends to support and be happy for them by being there and sending them special messages and gifts to demonstrate your support. It need not be expensive, but should be something special that comes from the heart. Try and keep the messages and quotes on the positive side. It can be funny, cute, meaningful, but mostly something to encourage the couples on their upcoming new journey together as one.
