Ten Perfect Wedding Gifts For Couples Who Love Travel

Is your fridge is covered in “Save the Date” cards? By now, your summer calendar probably includes a few weddings. And that means it’s time to start thinking about gifts.

It’s easy to give newlyweds a card with money, or the toaster from their registry. But it’s also predictable, and can feel impersonal. Sometimes celebrating the marriage of close friends or family calls for a special touch. The perfect wedding gift is unique, memorable, and useful. 

Travel related gifts are wonderful for couples that are about to embark on an exciting honeymoon. Here’s what to get the globetrotting lovebirds in your life.

Carry-On Luggage

Forget china – a set of high-quality carry-on luggage makes a very useful gift for newlyweds.

Before you buy, find out what the couple’s honeymoon plans are. For most types of travel like cruises or resort stays, they’ll want rolling suitcases.

For couples who will be taking their luggage down the cobblestoned streets of Venice or trekking through Thailand, look for a versatile bag that can be worn as a backpack or held like a duffle.

Travel Themed Art Print

A travel-themed art print makes a wonderful gift for couples who have a new home to decorate. On websites like Etsy and Minted you’ll find creative prints of maps, skylines and more. Choose a destination that means something to the couple – where they met, where they got engaged, their destination wedding location or honeymoon spot.

Plug Converter and Electronics Organizer

For tech-savvy couples who love to stay connected, an electronics organizer and adapter are a must when traveling. Wirecutter recommends this converter and this organizer.

Compact Camera

A high-quality yet compact, camera is the perfect accessory for a couple who enjoys travel photography. The Panasonic Lumix line is popular for its small size and incredible image quality. National Geographic has recommended the DMC-GX8 in the past while USA Today recently named ZS60 the best overall affordable camera for travel.

Monogrammed Luggage Tags and Passport Covers

Send the happy couple off on their honeymoon in style with a pair of matching, monogrammed luggage tags and passport covers. It’s an indulgence they may not purchase themselves but will certainly appreciate. (Just make sure you find out if the bride plans to keep her own name before getting them monogrammed.)

Travel Guide and Currency

There’s no better way to pass the time during a long flight than to read about your destination! Find out where the bride and groom are honeymooning and purchase a travel guide for the area. Pair it with currency local to their destination. It’s a thoughtful gift, and it will save them a trip to the bank.

Engraved Love Lock

Although love locks were recently removed from Paris’s famous Pont des Arts, the tradition has become a worldwide phenomenon. These padlocks, typically inscribed with a couple’s initials, are locked to a gate, bridge, or fence to symbolize the couple’s love.

Get a love lock engraved with the bride and groom’s names and wedding date. They can find somewhere to leave it during their travels or save it as a keepsake.

“Where We’ve Been” World Map

A personalized map makes a considerate gift for globetrotting couples – and these days, there are fancier alternatives to the scratch map. This map includes color-coded pins for destinations visited, places where friends and family live, your favorite place, and planned destinations.

Travel Magazine Subscription

Do you know a couple who’ve caught the travel bug? Help them satisfy their wanderlust year round with a travel magazine subscription. This gift pairs great with a bottle of the couple’s favorite wine.

Personalized Travel Journal

As the bride and groom embark on a lifetime of adventures together, give them a way to remember everything! This Smythson “Travel and Experiences” journal can be personalized with the couple’s initials or wedding date.

With these great gift ideas for travel enthusiasts, you’re all set for wedding season!
