1. NEWLYWED TSHIRTS
These are a must because, let's be honest, who doesn't want to get a little extra attention (or upgrades) on your honeymoon!? Make yourself stand out. There are tons of cute newlywed shirts on Etsy - some cheesier than others (here is his/here is mine) - so find one the husband won't be embarrassed to wear and soak in the congratulatory wishes. Honeymoons are a one time experience after all!
We put new luggage on our registry because we're always on the go and our bags we're getting a little worn out. These are the carry on bags we got (thanks Ahern aunts and uncles!), and they were recommended to us as being great quality suitcases. We love them so far and they have a lifetime warranty, which is awesome.
3. LUGGAGE TAGS
I'm obsessed with these cute luggage tags @mayaa.handmade sent me. You can customize them with whatever you want them to say and whatever color scheme you want. (Obviously) I chose gold for myself, and I got Joe the leather one. 😍 It was fun to surprise him and put this on his bag - he didn't see it until we were just about to leave.
I also love these adventurer luggage tags (similar here and here), which were a gift from my amazing cousin! Perfect for a couple who's passionate about traveling, and love that they had our wedding date on them. We got some compliments on how cute they were at the airport too!
4. SUN HAT
Beach honeymoons deserve a fun floppy hat. This was perfect for Phuket and Phi Phi Islands in Thailand! Shades of Pink Btq has really cute, customizable ones. Perfect for a shower or bachelorette gift. You can even have it read "Mrs. XYZ" or "just married"! Check me out wearing this hat on the Shades of Pink Btq Etsy store.
5. MONOGRAM PAJAMAS
My friend who was married earlier this year had a PJ set at a bachelorette party and I thought to myself, wow that is really adulting right there. I loved how cute it was, and got monogrammed PJs for all of my bridesmaids to wear while getting ready on the wedding day. Loved having mine *with my new initials* to bring on the honeymoon too! These pajama sets are from Target and Nordstrom.

6. BEACH BAG
New initials is a great reason to get new beach gear, obviously. Monogrammed totes are so cute and a perfect way to show off your new initials.

7. BEACH TOWELS
Same reasoning as #6 above. Out with the old, in with the new (name)! I love this one.
8. PASSPORT CASE
Joe got me this to go along with the wedding gift he got me. He's had one for awhile now, and I absolutely loved it. It's an awesome gift idea for a couple who travels.
9. AIRPLANE SUPPLIES
Read about what I pack in my airplane bag here - everything from what keeps me from looking totally haggard when I step off the plane to what to pack to keep yourself occupied.
10. UNDERWATER PHONE/CAMERA CASE
If you have a GoPro, make sure to pick up some filters for whatever you plan on doing. You can get some rad underwater filters that make the colors pop from PolarPro. If you don't have a GoPro, check out these underwater cases. Who doesn't want to snapchat underwater?!
