Your honeymoon is one of the most exciting holidays of your life. Not only will you be visiting a destination that you’ve always wanted to travel to, but you’ll get some much-needed R&R after the stress of planning your big to-do! And you get to celebrate your newlywed status, of course.
Once you’ve decided where you’re going, you need to make sure you’ve packed accordingly. We know you’ve probably already thought about all of the essentials, adapter, charger, beach towels etc…so now’s the time to think about all those special little extras.
To help you on your way, we’ve compiled a list of some upgraded versions of all the extra honeymoon must-haves that are sure to add an extra level of luxury to your travels. From fancy flip fops to chic beach bags – we have got you covered. Bon voyage!
First up, these adorable newly-wed themed passport holders and luggage tags from Paperchase are perfect for those of you wanting to go all out for your honeymoon. This set comes stamped with a shimmering gold ‘Mrs’ on your passport, with a tag to match. If you really want to make your nuptials clear, get your Mr or Mrs their own too so you can match!
An eye mask is an ultimate accessory when it comes to any kind of travel. They are great for getting some much-needed shut-eye during those long-haul flights, ideal for those of you planning on going far far away for your honeymoon. These super cute embroiled ‘just married’ eye masks from Etsy are an excellent way to kick off your trip while keeping your eyes rested and protected.
Headphone splitters are also a perfect small gadget for any long or short plane journeys, allowing you and your new partner to listen to music together, watch movies or even go through videos from your special day, without having to strain your neck uncomfortably or plug your other ear to avoid background noise for a 7-hour flight! This is also just a super useful gadget to have, honeymoon or not. Share the love (and your playlist) with a smart splitter.
