What are good honeymoon gifts when you can’t make the wedding or bridal shower or just want to send the perfect gift to be enjoyed beyond the wedding day?
We’ve got some honeymoon travel gift ideas:
Once the couple are engaged, could you and a few friends/family members start a honeymoon fund? You could open a high interest savings account and you all donate a certain amount a month with the view to gifting the couple the cash before they go on their honeymoon.
If you get four other people to join you, if you each donate £10 a month for a year, you’ll be able to give them £600 honeymoon spending money.
Consider the journey to the honeymoon destination. If they’re travelling far, build a honeymoon gift box full of useful items like a lip balm, silk eye mask, personalised luggage tags, carry on champagne cocktail kit, food to enjoy en-route, reusable travel mug and hand sanitiser.
If it’s a staycation in their home country, check out our guide on what to include in a staycation themed gift box.
Keep it personal. You know at least one of them very well, so keep their likes, dislikes, hobbies or little secrets the two of you have, and work that into your gift.
Gift something they will use more than once; that might be something during the months of wedding planning or items they can take on the honeymoon or bring into their new home.
We love the book Date Night In; designed to spark conversation and intimacy with over 75 prompts about their past, present, and future as a couple.
You could also gift a copy of The Newlywed Year; a celebration of marriage for newlyweds that offers a year's worth of seasoned advice for building a love that lasts. Drawing on wisdom from successful marriages, the book delivers both humorous and touching tips for the newly married couple.
Try something relaxation orientated they can enjoy together. Candles, oils, food-based gifts and books are great for experiences they can share.
Cookbooks always go down a treat and learning to eat plant-based is good for the waistline and the planet.
The honeymoon is bound to be full of photographs but written memories are just as important (and will probably last longer) so include a beautiful notebook in your gift box which can be used to journal feelings and emotions and store special keepsakes.
Last but by no means least, top if it off with a handwritten card to let your friend, sister and loved one know how excited you are for her as she embarks on this new chapter.
