BUT when I have been a BM in the recent past I have bought vintage bottles of champagne for the engaged couple. For my bestie, I bought the bottle from the year we met and became friends (1999). For my sister I bought the bottle from the year she and her fiance started dating (2001). It wasn't a cheap present by any means and it had sentimental value as well. I attached cards that said "to be opened on your wedding night...or your first night in your new house...or the first night you bring your future child home...choose a special occasion and celebrate on us" (or something to that effect anyways ).
Both times, it was a very appreciated gift

What about a vintage crockery set (Royal Doulton or similar)?

When I am grown up I will understand how beautiful it feels to administrate my life effectively.
Until then I will continue to torch all correspondence that bores me and to dance naked over the remnants of its still glowing embers. ~ Edward Monkton

We were given one by my mum and dad when we were first engaged and it now has the dates of our wedding and both our children's christenings (you could also do 1st birthdays if not religious). We absolutely love it and use it for all special celebrations.

What to you normally give when you can't make it to an engagement party?
