Gifts Ideas for a Destination Wedding
Do good things really come in small packages? When it comes to destination wedding gifts, gift size is a major concern. With luggage space constraints, it can become quite difficult to transport a gift to the destination wedding location. Stuffing a Mikasa vase or fine China dinnerware into a clothing-stuffed suitcase is a recipe for disaster!
Unbreakable, One-Piece Wedding Gift Ideas:
- Cash is always a welcomed gift: Couples can use it to enhance their honeymoon experience, towards their wedding expenses, or save it until they return home for the next big milestone. Here’s the best news of all—this gift won’t take up more than a few inches of space in your suitcase, so now you can pack that don't-leave-home-without-it-rubber-ducky, or your favorite pair of footed pajamas!
- Gift Cards are easy to transport: You can purchase a gift card to a home store so the couple can use it when they return from their honeymoon. Or you can give them a prepaid Visa or American Express card they can use anywhere they please. Small and clever all in one!
- Wedding Registry: The couple knows exactly what they want so don't spend another minute agonizing, simply buy a gift off the registry and send it directly to the couple’s address or to a relative of the recipient. Many times destination wedding couples will designate a family member to receive gifts for them while they are away on their honeymoon.
- Honeymoon Fun: Is the couple headed to the sparkling blue waters of the Caribbean? Surprise the couple with scuba diving lessons. Are they traveling to fun and lively Las Vegas? Surprise the couple with a gift certificate to a popular local restaurant. A spa gift certificate is another great idea since the couple will most likely need the extra rest and relaxation. Call local spas and start a tab for them so they can choose whatever services they want!
Although the couple may have fled the border for their whirlwind wedding, they will put their traditional hats back on when it comes to receiving wedding gifts from loved ones. The bride and groom will certainly enjoy any one of these ideas and will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
