What wedding gift to buy for the globe-trotting lovebirds in your life? There’s so much choice available, but we think it’s easier to narrow it down to romantic gift ideas – after all, they’re on honeymoon, so a travel adaptor while useful isn’t exactly going to fire their imagination any!
Here’s we’ve put together a list of what we think are some great romantic gift ideas for honeymoon couples traveling to South America – a land of mysticism, passion, poetry and breathtaking scenery – the perfect destination for a just-married couple to explore.
- (Surprise) Flight Upgrade
Nothing says luxury like an upgrade from economy, and if you want their honeymoon to get off to the best possible start, this is a fantastic way to spend your money. You can offer to pay the difference before they go – do it at the time they’re booking flights ideally, to ensure availability – or doing it yourself, if you can get hold of their booking details. It’s worth calling the airline and seeing if you can get hold of a friendly and understanding customer service agent – they may be able to help you make it a complete surprise.
- His n Hers matching passport covers and luggage tags
They’re embarking on life’s most special journey, so make sure they do it in style. This wedding gift idea is ideal if you’re on a budget but still want to get them something memorable. It’s also a very practical idea – no-one wants to go on honeymoon and lose their luggage.
- Foldable ice bucket
In our opinion, the one travel gift no-one should ever be forced to do without. The foldable ice bucket may in fact be mankind’s greatest invention – the honeymooners need never miss cocktail hour again, whether they’re in the rainforest, on the Copacabana beach, or on the Bolivian salt flats (just the place for a margarita!)
- Tinggly experience gift box
Tinggly is the whole world in one gift – simply made for honeymooning couples. Our Dream Wedding gift box is packed with unforgettable experiences, from the pampering, like this full day pass to a thermal spa in Costa Rica, to the adventurous, such as a sightseeing flight over the mysterious Nazca Lines, to a fun-packed day out at Brazil’s Arraial d’Ajuda Eco Park for two!
- Personalised leather-bound travel journal
We love the idea of providing the couple with a stylish travel journal so they can remember the trip of a lifetime with photos, tickets, thoughts and stories. Not all couples are into that kind of thing, so as an alternative, you could buy them a travel guide for the destination(s) they plan to visit, and have that bound in leather for them instead.
- Portable beach speaker
Many of the world’s most beautiful beaches are to be found on South American coastlines. If your honeymooners are planning to spend some time relaxing on the sands, then why not buy them a trendy, and compact, portable beach speaker so they can listen to their favourite tunes in the sunshine. Go for a waterproof model, just in case the party on the Copacabana beach gets really wild!
- Framed map
A honeymoon doesn’t need to end when the couple get back home. We think one of the nicest way to keep those memories alive is with a fancy framed map which can be placed on the wall. They can trace their route through South America with coloured pins, add photos of key moments, and remember their romantic honeymoon every time they walk past.
