    Because the party is not a shower, I would not feel obligated to buy a present.  I would bring a card.  At most I would bring a bottle of wine or gift certificate for a restaurant they'd both enjoy.

    It's not necessary and you do not need to feel obligated, but many people do bring gifts to engagement parties. Nothing like large wedding gifts, but a card plus a bottle of wine (if they drink), a small gift basket, a gift card, etc. would be nice.

    I sent a movie gift card in a card to the only one I was ever invited to since I didn't really know if I was supposed to give a gift.

    Engagement parties are not a thing in my circle, but if I were invited to one I would probably buy the couple a bottle of wine or liquor or maybe a gift card to a restaurant.

    Even though engagement parties are not seen as gift giving events I know I would feel really odd about showing up with nothing.

    I usually give a bottle of wine or a gift card.

    A card would be appropriate, but no more than that is necessary.

    A card would be very appropriate. Maybe a bottle of wine if you feel like it.

    I would bring a card and a bottle of under $25 wine. Or some other alcohol if they don't like wine.

    Engagement parties aren't gift occasions. Previous Posters are making good calls, the same sort of little gift you'd bring if someone invited you to their home.

    I'd nix the alcohol altogether if they teetotal or just don't like to drink it.
