A honeymoon gift list is the perfect way to turn your wedding gifts into the honeymoon of your dreams. Buy Our Honeymoon reveal all…
If, like many couples, you don’t need the traditional department store stuff for your home, services such as Buy Our Honeymoon let you instead create a unique gift list of activities, experiences and contributions towards making your honeymoon happen.
The great thing about this is that your honeymoon gift list can be as fun for your guests to use as it is for you to create. There’s nothing especially romantic about a bread bin — but there’s plenty to love about a picnic in Paris. A set of coasters? Meh. Roller coasters? A thrilling gift!
The trick is to get creative and show your personality. With Buy Our Honeymoon, you can make your list as detailed or as simple as you like — you can have any number of items, organised in whatever way you choose, and broken down in a variety of guest-friendly ways. You’ve got plenty of room to describe each gift, and to talk about your honeymoon plans and hopes more generally.
If your guests feel that they’re treating you to the time of your lives and not just making an anonymous donation into a big pot, they’ll be more engaged with your gift list and enthusiastic about participating in your dream.
Buy Our Honeymoon’s easy-to-use service lets you mix one-off items and open contributions on the same list, so it’s easy to turn your basic expenses into exciting gifts. Rather than just asking for £50 towards your plane tickets, perhaps your guests could sponsor some miles of your journey, or the duration of an in-flight movie?
You can make your gift list reflect who you are as a couple. Are you hoping for fun and excitement? Or romance and relaxation? Buy Our Honeymoon have a variety of different, customisable designs so your gift list makes a fantastic first impression — and there are no ads to ruin the view. You can choose from a selection of discreet web addresses for your list, and their branding stays subtle so the focus is all on the story you want to tell.
You can include anything you can think of as a gift — from bizarre delicacies and dangerous dining, to a week of sat-nav or a fortnight’s supply of Super-8 film. Your guests reserve the items that speak to them the most, and pay the value of their gift directly to you, facilitated by the site into your bank account, or in person using custom instructions you can provide.
And when you return, you can thank your friends and family with a photograph of you both enjoying the gift they’ve provided.
