Cool Honeymoon Gift Ideas

After all the band baaja and baraat and getting showered in millions of wedding gifts, it is time for the bride & groom to sit back and relax, isn’t it? Now, that relaxing hour – the Honeymoon is technically the most awaited getaway by the couple post the hectic rituals. There are tons of honeymoon gifts we think you could gift them or couples can gift each other with these amazing honeymoon gift ideas!

So here is the ultimate list of Honeymoon Gifts Ideas for couples and friends alike:

#1. Lingerie

Silk, lace and all those pretty netted lingerie. Yes, it is time to gift the perfect lingerie set to your wife or even your best friend who just got hitched. Nothing like kick-starting the honeymoon period with something the ladies wanted to own for a long time now, right?

#2. Bathrobes

We said it once and we would definitely say it again, custom made Bathrobes as gifts are close to a perfect honeymoon gifts idea. Bathrobes with the couple’s initials, the Mr/Mrs tags and any phrase close to their heart, are the most comfortable and cosy gifts one could get for the honeymoon getaway.

#3. Monogrammed Travels

And much like Bathrobes, soft towels too are go-to purchases as honeymoon gifts. Especially the glossy sets, that include not just bathing towels but all of what you would need to travel around with on your honeymoon! Plus, if you’re gifting each other or a couple, make sure to get monogrammed towels with letters of your choice, making it not just a great honeymoon gifts idea but also a personalised one at that.

#4. Wine & Champagne

Now, who doesn’t love a bottle of Wine or Champagne? That too for their honeymoon! Best way to kickstart the special phase isn’t? We suggest you surprise your spouse with a basket of carefully selected wines and flavours like Chenin Blanc, Rose, Cabernet and others or gift the couple an enormous bottle of champagne to pop and cherish their time away. You could even take each other to wine tours at Sula vineyards, Grover and many others across the world and spend your time, goofing around vineyards and having a sip of all the wine that there is. Because there’s nothing like letting your hair down and sipping some wine with cheese.

#5. Spa vouchers

If there’s one thing newlyweds need, it is rejuvenation. Couple Spa passes probably feature on the most favourite Honeymoon Gifts Ideas and we bet you’re loved ones would be delighted to receive them. Make sure to purchase time-specific ones and choose the most exclusive spa ever. Also, not just spa vouchers but you could actually consider gifting spa retreats to each other and do nothing but relax for a weekend. If you’re returning from a massive wedding, make sure to let out all the steam and make the most of that jacuzzi!

#6. Roses

Imagine walking into a room lit with candles and beautiful soft petals all around! Or just a bed decorated with your favourite bunch of flowers. Even better, a bundle of roses, for the classic and good old Honeymoon gift ideas list! Especially with bouquets getting innovative and being delivered as bundles in boxes, these roses last for more days than usual and will be a honeymoon couple favourite accessory. From red to gold petal roses, these bundles are love packed in a box.

#7. Perfumes

Who doesn’t love perfumes? That too as gifts at the beginning of this special journey. We’d say, go for it! Pick up his/her favourite odour or a basket of miniature perfumes which include Red Vanillas and other familiar scents from many of our favourite brands.

#8. Him & her watches

Watches for him and her are the best bet for newlywed couples. Especially before they take off on their honeymoon. As time flies, this is the best sort of souvenir for them to glance upon and smile thinking about you. Year after year we have Titan, Casio, Fossil, Rado and many of our other luxurious brands showcasing beautiful and sleek designs for couples. And picking one of these as a gift to treasure is probably the most recommended thing to do.

#9. Essential oils

From Khadi oils to ayurvedic, therapeutic and relaxing oils, there are more than just one type to choose from for your honeymoon. While you relax and laze around, maybe a lavender oil or two along with your travel kit might just help you chill further.

#10. Bath & body kit

The Bath & Body Works or even The Body Shop product line basket, is everyone’s favourite and most anticipated gift, so why not gift it right before the honeymoon? With Strawberry lotions, cocoa shower creams and fruity lip balms, it is every girl’s most exciting package to unwrap.

#11. Kimono

Stunning Kimonos for the honeymoon! Nothing like gifting your wife or best friend that perfect kimono to lounge around during the honeymoon, right? They are not only comfortable but also a woman’s best accessory during cosy trips. A Kimono should surely be on your honeymoon gifting list, for it is not every day that we indulge in fancy attire.

#12. Honeymoon Travel Journal

The past year has been all about planners, calendars, journals and whatnot. Pinning that task/memory down is a hobby we loved indulging in. So why not do the same for a Honeymoon? Especially for couples who love travelling, a journal would definitely feature on their top 5 things to carry. And several online platforms are now selling super aesthetic journals, which can be customised too. So a travel journal for the couple, all set to globe-trot!

#13. Beer Coolies/Koozies

Beer Coolies it is! For the couple to sip out of, all day long and just chill. As a honeymoon couple you could be on the go for quite a few days. So imagine having chilled beer at all times? Best isn’t? Personalised Beer Coolies and some uber-cool Koozies are fast becoming the most fun gifts off the honeymoon list and we’d say, you should grab some too.

#14. Polaroid & Sprocket Portable Printer & Came

Nothing like old school prints or framing memories. On the very first trip as husband and wife, every picture is perfect and every moment is worth capturing. So why not get a little nostalgic and gift each other a Polaroid? Or if you’re friends are out on their honeymoon and are photography freaks, then an Instax is the most precious gift you could get them! Most recently, HP has also launched the Sprocket Portable Printer & instant camera, which lets you take photos, print not just camera captured frames but also snapshots taken on your phone as well. Frankly, this one is the most thoughtful and cute little gift we could ever think of.

#15. Travel kits

As newlyweds, the couple can get super busy in trying to assemble all their essentials in one place. So, while you chart those honeymoon gifting ideas, remember to jot down travel kits. Not just chic pouches and bling mini makeup bags to fit in all their essentials, but pouches that come with the essentials as well. Your lotions, dental kits, hygiene products and all of it in one easy to carry pouch. So you don’t have to look back or go hunting for your go-to products while on the honeymoon.

#16. Candles

We are all suckers for pretty things and sweet odours. And with mood uplifting candles and various incense sticks available for different occasions, these packages are something a honeymoon couple must travel with. Plus, if you are the bride/groom and you are on your way to surprise your spouse with a stay like never before, then candles might be the perfect touch to your getaway.

#17. Selfie sticks

In 2019, don’t we all need them? To get the couple goals going and capture yourself as every corner you are now going to conquer together, a selfie stick it is! Plus, for all the times you third wheeled for your favourite bride and groom, constantly clicking their best moments, it is time to pass the baton, in the form of a selfie stick. We’d say it would be a sweet reminder of the best friend that you are and a gift to remember.

#18. Pyjamas

Quirky and funky prints have taken over almost every aspect of our life now, especially clothing. So while satin night suits and linen pyjama sets are still the comfiest options, there is nothing like picking up some banana, pizza/burger printed pyjama sets for a honeymoon! Especially if the couple is crazy and nomadic. E-commerce is filled with the most out of the box printed night suits, bunny style pyjama sets and so much more, that you’ll be spoilt for choice as you tick off that honeymoon gifts list.

#19. Chocolates /marshmallows /candies

No matter how old we get or how much we have to adult, we are all kids at a candy store. Considering couples would finally take a cheat break from their strict diets and regimes for the wedding, the sweetest gifts to present for the honeymoon would be bucket loads of chocolates, candies, marshmallows and everything that would satisfy the sweet tooth cravings. We would suggest Mason & Co bars, dark chocolate fantasies, lots of Lindt, candies of all shapes and definitely some sweet lollipops.

#20. Eye Patches

Now that the wedding is over and it is time to bunk in the bed for a long time, eye patches must be on the top of your head to escape the hustle and bustle. For a goodnight’s sleep at the Honeymoon and to avoid dark circles for your picture-perfect moments, soft and rash free eye patches it is.

#21. Portable Coffee Mugs/ Travel Mugs

Every couple is a contributor to the growing caffeine addicts in the world. If one of you are the ones, who wouldn’t begin your day without a cup of coffee, then there is no list without this. Travel Mugs, to walk around the lanes of all the beautiful destinations you are going to hit on the honeymoon. They keep your dosage of caffeine warm and with the capacity to store enormous amounts of it, we are pretty sure you will never get a chance to get cranky.

#22. Couple Tees

Over to some cheesy merchandise for the first romantic time as Mr and Mrs. Tshirts pointing out to each other or proudly carrying the new tags that the bride and groom carry, will be an adorable thing to gift. The couple would choose your token of love over any designer wear, any day.

#23. Netflix and chill

We all have that friend who lends us his/her Netflix credentials. But now that one of us is entering the next phase of life, it is time to payback! And since we firmly believe that there can be no better combination than Netflix and chill, an entire year’s Netflix subscription, is the ultimate gift you could get for the couple, especially the ones who hooked to their shows.

#24. Cruise

While surprise/adventure trips can always be given to couples or each other, a cruise is the sort of thing you would want to choose as a honeymoon gift. Choose from cruises over Alaska, Singapore or the Bahamas and many other sea of options for the bride and groom and gift an experience of a lifetime.

#25. Couple dance lessons

If your romantic getaway is also a groovy destination like Spain or the many other dance capitals around the world, then maybe you would want to stop and indulge in something fun. Surprise your husband/wife and take her for a week of salsa classes, ballroom dance workshops or any style that would help you break free and most importantly bring you closer.

#26. Assorted baskets

Imagine if many of the above come in one grand basket? Yes! We are talking about assorted baskets that you could order online for the couple. Baskets that come with a bottle of wine, some chocolates, travel pouches, warm socks, oils and a lot more gifts of your choice, in one grand package. While there can be no one like the best friend who knows exactly what the bride and groom want, handpicking a honeymoon basket would be the ideal package to handover.

So, from relaxing spa getaways to walking into a room filled with soft petals and irresistible scents and many quirky merchandises to carry around as newlyweds, we are hoping you are now prepared with the biggest and largest honeymoon gifting list that there is!

And now that you have all the wedding gift ideas that you need, plan a wedding registry so your friends and family can get these gifts for you.
