The following list includes the top five most purchased honeymoon registry items to spark ideas for your own.
Romantic Candlelight Dinner
Dial up the romance! Your honeymoon should be full of experiences you wouldn’t normally treat yourself to, so now is the time to splurge. In Hawaii, dine on fresh seafood at the foot of a volcano or on the beach beneath a starlit sky. Choose a private table for two in a bustling Roman plaza for delicious, homemade pasta. Share platters of delectable Mediterranean food, from lamb to octopus, overlooking the iconic architecture in Greece. Wherever the destination, enjoying local fare surrounded by breathtaking scenery is a must.
Breakfast in Bed
Arguably the best part about a honeymoon is escaping normal, everyday obligations. You and your spouse can fill the trip with uninterrupted moments, staying out late with nothing to do and nowhere to be in the morning. Of course, days and nights like these call for breakfast in bed. It’s the perfect way to start, relaxing in each other’s company. Wake up to canopies of palm trees in St. Bart’s while you enjoy fresh fruit and food or indulge in enchiladas and papas fritas in Mexico while basking in the rising sun. Every bite is the most delicious bite when you’re enjoying breakfast in bed on your honeymoon.
Every honeymoon needs at least one adventure that leaves you and yours with a lifetime of memories. For newlyweds using Honeymoon Wishes to visit a tropical destination, snorkeling always delivers. Take advantage of the turquoise waters of Belize and get up close and personal with rays, eels and other types of vibrant fish. Dive into Hawaii’s crystal-clear warm waters full of colorful fish, dolphins and turtles. Australia is just as breathtaking with the iconic Great Barrier Reef and more than 1,400 miles of shoreline to explore. Home to Barracudas, manta rays, fish and sharks, it’s a must-see destination. Exploration often makes honeymoons even more memorable, which is why snorkeling is a popular item for honeymoon registries.
Honeymoons are ideal for relaxing, rejuvenating and decompressing, which is why spa days lands in the top five. Peaceful atmosphere, comfy robes and slippers and a plethora of treatments to take advantage of, it’s no wonder newlywed couple love adding them to their Honeymoon Wishes registries. Enjoy a couples’ massage in the middle of the serene Riviera Maya in Mexico, surrounded by palm trees and turquois water. Spend the day drinking Sonoma Valley’s best wines and relax later that night with a deep tissue massage and facial. Whatever spa day treatment piques your interest, they’re ideal for the quality time you and your spouse are hoping for during your honeymoon.
