Honeymoon Gift Basket


Recently, I have seen a trend in the weddings I’ve been in where the bride is surprised with a gift basket of goodies for her honeymoon. The basket can come from the MOH or all the bridesmaids, it can be given to her before the wedding or hidden in the getaway car, and it can be as practical or risqué as you want.

For my sister’s wedding, I erred on the “practical” side and put together a basket of items she could bring on her honeymoon. I was so happy with how the basket came together, and I think she was too! So without further ado...
 
Honeymoon Gift Basket Contents:
1. Travel tips for Punta Cana & the Magestic Elegance Resort {Matt and I also honeymooned there} / 2. Monogrammed necklace / 3. Magazines / 4. Snacks / 5. Book / 6. Personalized Tumblers / 7. Mini champagne bottles / 8. Tanning oil / 9. Gum / 10. Medicines / 11. EOS lip balm / 12. Mini deck of cards / 13. Nail polish / 14. Lotion / 15. Personalized luggage tag

For the "HONEYMOON" banner, I used a free printable found {here}.
I ordered the tumblers from All Things Vinyl’s Etsy shop {here}

Right now Deandra is offering FREE SHIPPING to all my lovely readers. Just use the code VINYLMEFREESHIP at checkout. Or if you buy two sets of car initials, she will throw in a free set with the code INITIALMEFREE at checkout.
 I ordered the luggage tag from Your Monogram’s Etsy shop!
I ordered the monogrammed necklace from HandPicked!

  33. After seeing this on your blog, I tried it out for some friends that were heading to Italy for their honeymoon. Since my husband and I had just traveled there for our honeymoon a few months prior, I was able to include some things perfect for Italy in there. Our friends LOVED it. Great idea! This is why I love your blog!!

  35. I love this idea of a honeymoon gift basket for the bride! I wonder if they have any gift baskets in Toronto like this, or if I would have to put something together myself. Either way I'm going to try this idea out with my friend who is getting married in three weeks.

  42. Thank you for sharing. Those are some really cool gift baskets. You put some really cool items in there and it seemed like you got to personalize the basket. That is what I really like about gift baskets. You can tailor them to the likes of the person you are giving the present to. For the holidays I gave my clients some corporate gift baskets and they loved them.

  43. Can you give me details on how you made the banner??

  44. I love this! There is a store I like that does gift baskets in Toronto and I've been thinking about buying my sister, who is getting married next month, one. They are cute there but I love that I could make my own personalized one for her. I never even thought about putting one together myself. She is going to love it. Thanks for the idea!

  46. What a cheeky question to have asked - none of their business! I've been reading your blog for ages and have never been in any doubt that you both work extremely hard, and much of your handiwork, were from your "downtime". I want to tell you about Baby books for boys. Finding the most ideal existing for any event can be nerve-wrecking and challenging. Providing someone a Baby books for boys existing conveys true significance that come straight from the center. An individualized existing is given to compliment, thank, or even award family members. As a point actually, it reveals a million words written across products for the whole globe see. These personalized provides are given child bathrooms, marriage wedding anniversaries, marriage provides, Presents, and more. Below is some provides based on the receiver or event that everyone can appreciate
