Presents for the honeymoon and beyond.
You know the couple we’re talking about here. They met while studying abroad in college. There’s a pin-speckled world map on the wall in their living room. He proposed on a hot-air balloon ride above the Masai Mara in Kenya. And you wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they made a tiny passport for their unborn child as a birth announcement—yes, people have really done this.
Though their next adventure is just a short walk down the aisle, it’s the most exciting one yet, and you will be there to celebrate with them. So, what to get for the couple that values experiences far more than appliances?
If these two haven’t opted for a honeymoon registry on a site like Honeyfund or Wanderable that allows wedding guests to crowdfund the couple’s experiences on their post-knot-tying trip, these wedding gift ideas are both thoughtful and useful—not just to pack for the honeymoon, but for all future trips to come.
For the truly adventurous duo, the ones setting off to hike an active volcano on their honeymoon, gifts like a set of Barbour waxed, water-resistant jackets or a SOLKOA survival kit will prepare them for years of taking on the wilderness together.
If the newlyweds have more relaxed travel preferences (the only mud they’ll come close to encountering is in a mask at a destination spa), we recommend Slip’s silk pillowcases or a Skyn Iceland Skin Hangover Kit to refresh and rejuvenate post-reception.
And for the pair who loves to document and look back on their trips, a personalized print or a set of reclaimed wood frames will help to keep their travel memories in sight.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect way to celebrate a destination wedding or want to go off-registry for a couple of nomads, here are 17 travel-themed wedding gifts for when a set of fine china or a four-slice toaster just won’t do.
