Honeymoon Gift Ideas


Tradition states that in ancient times, many marriages were by capture and not by choice. When a man wanted an unwilling woman, he would carry her off to a secret place where her relatives could not find them. After the moon went through all its phases (usually 30 days), they hid and drank brew that was made from honey. Here is where we derive the term 'honeymoon'. Nowadays, it's traditional for a 'willing' Bride to escape to a new, uncharted territory with her Groom. By unraveling new mysteries of the land and embarking on new adventures this becomes metaphorical for the terrain of their new path as husband and wife.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it traditional for the Bride to give the Groom a gift?
Many Brides want to give their Groom a special gift in addition to the wedding ring. Often this gift will be something for his personal use, such as a pair of cuff links or an engraved watch. Other Brides prefer non-traditional items that reflect his hobbies and interests-sporting equipment, camping gear or equipment for a chef.

Is it traditional for the Groom to give the Bride a gift?
Many Grooms will give a gift in addition to the engagement ring and wedding band. Some select additional pieces of jewelry, including heirloom jewelry from their family. Other men prefer a contemporary choice of a leather coat, a bicycle or a year's worth of flower delivery.
