The wedding day for your favorite jetsetters has almost arrived. Now what to get for the couple that values experiences over kitchen appliances? For the newlyweds that are just starting their journey together, we’ve rounded up our favorite gift ideas - both thoughtful and practical for the honeymoon and adventures beyond!
Wedding Gift Guide for the Jetsetting Couple
Lightweight Luggage Set
The key here is light, because no one wants to lug heavy, overstuffed bags around the world. Some of our favorite luggage brands, which are also sturdy and stylish are Delsey, Samsonite, and Osprey. Although black looks chic, opt for a bolder color to make it easier to distinguish from the crowd at baggage claim.
Hometown State Maps
If the bride and groom hail from two seperate states, or are moving to a new state together, US state maps with push pins make a charming gift. These vintage-style maps will make the perfect conversation piece in any room of their home. They can pin the spots where they have special memories together and plan out where they want to visit next!
GoPro is dubbed the world’s most versatile camera - and for good reason! It is both durable and waterproof, making it great to capture those moments where a smartphone just can’t do justice.
There are a variety of styles depending on which features they desire, ranging in price from the Hero at $199.99 to the Fusion at $699.99. There are also tons of add-on accessories depending on which adventure activities the couple loves, such as a head strap, selfie stick, helmet, and handlebar mount. There’s even a dog harness for letting their furry friend in on the fun!

What better gift for the couple that you know will go all out on travel, than money towards the honeymoon fund? Many registries allow couples to ask for activities such as surfing lessons or wine tastings, so you feel like you are gifting actual experiences rather than just cold cash. Popular honeymoon registry options include Honeyfund, Wanderable, and Traveler’s Joy.
Travel is the gift that keeps on giving. Help the adventurous duo get exactly what they want - to get out there and see the world together!
