Right after the wedding, the couple is going on their first adventure as a married couple, so help them pack for their honeymoon! Luggage is something they will definitely need, but if you want to add a very special touch to your gift, personalise the bags with their monogram or even print or etch their wedding date on them!

A dinner on a swanky yacht, two-night hotel escape, a gourmet dinner, a hot air balloon ride, whale watching experience for two, a unique wine tasting experience or a really luxurious afternoon tea? Think what the bride and groom like doing together and make sure it is something that will be a real treat for them.

Or treat them with a relaxing couple’s massage they will really enjoy after the hectic period of wedding preparations and festivities. Purchase a gift voucher and if you really want to spoil the newly-weds, make it a once a month thing. And to make it a very intimate experience, you can find a spa that offers massages at home.
