If you’re putting together a honeymoon basket for a bridal shower gift, you’ll love these ideas! We were wondering, what do you put in a honeymoon basket, since they’re such a popular gift for the couple at the bridal shower right now. So, we looked for the best honeymoon basket gifts on Etsy (yay, handmade!) so you can shop small + support independent businesses while also giving a fun, personalized honeymoon gift for your favorite couple — or yourself, if you’re planning your honeymoon right now. :)
Here are the seven things you won’t want YOUR honeymoon basket to go without. Enjoy!
Honeymoon Basket Ideas
First, you’ll need a basket, bag, or box to hold the honeymoon gifts for the couple. Before you buy one, decide which gifts you’ll be putting inside the basket so you know how large (or how small) of a container you’ll need.
I like shopping for baskets at Target, since I can go online and hold for pick-up in store. I also like looking around the store itself, sniffing candles along the way and buying too many Magnolia items. But that’s just me. :) Most of the time, I prefer the online pickup option because my local store is almost ALWAYS out of exactly the thing I need, so it saves me a trip if the item is out of stock (and I can go pick up at another location). Here are some great ideas for baskets.
Personally, this honeymoon basket is my favorite one (available here). It is large, has a nice neutral cream color to it, and will go with any decor. Plus, the couple will love this as their honeymoon basket and can use it again as home decor, like a place to hold throw blankets or toys for babies in the future, perhaps. :)
Okay, this is just one basket idea. For your own honeymoon basket ideas, you don’t have to use a basket. You can also use a cute honeymoon bag like these or this one which is personalized with the bride’s new last name (by BrideBikini):
