Honeymoon Gift Ideas
Send newlyweds off in style with the perfect gift for their honeymoon
By Kylie Keeler
Honeymoon gifts provide the newlyweds with a gift they can use and enjoy while embarking on their first adventure together as a married couple. Ranging from luxurious to moderately priced, these gifts add value to a couple's already memorable honeymoon. Choosing a great honeymoon gift requires a little knowledge about the couple and, preferably, their honeymoon destination.
Perhaps one of the most useful gifts a couple can receive for their honeymoon is a sturdy set of luggage. Choose wheeled luggage that is both durable and fashionable. Stay away from colors and patterns that are bold or edgy unless you are certain that is the couple's style.
Gift Cards to Destination Locations
If you know where the couple is going, gift cards to restaurants, hotels or spas make a useful honeymoon gift for the newlyweds. For example, if the couple is going to Walt Disney World for their honeymoon, a Disney gift card, redeemable at Walt Disney World restaurants and shops, gives them some spending money.
Tickets to a show playing near the couple's honeymoon destination gives the couple plenty of options for entertainment while saving them money in the process. Choose tickets to a show the couple is likely to enjoy, and stay away from shows that are too kitschy or touristy.
A digital camera allows the newlyweds to capture memories from their honeymoon. Digital cameras range in price from $150 to prosumer cameras that may cost more than the honeymoon itself. Many couples have a digital camera on their registry, which will give you a good idea of what they're looking for.
Wine Gift Basket
Unless the couple doesn't drink, a wine gift basket is a safe choice for a honeymoon gift that the newlyweds can use as soon as they arrive at their destination. If the couple has specified their destination hotel, call the hotel and ask if you can purchase wine for the couple for their arrival.
Passport covers are both simple and, usually, inexpensive. Choose a cover that is both stylish and durable. Passport covers come in numerous materials from durable paper to dyed leather.
Travel guides to the couple's destination are a gift that will come in handy when they are navigating an unfamiliar location. Choose travel guides that offer suggestions for the best restaurants, sightseeing spots and historical information.
