If you’re starting a new home together after your wedding, the traditional department store wedding gift list can be a godsend. However, there’s a good chance you’re already living with each other, and have all the homeware you need. What if, instead of filling your home, you could use your wedding gift list to fund your honeymoon?

Buy Our Honeymoon provides a dedicated platform to compile a honeymoon gift list that wedding guests can contribute to and in turn, provide you with the trip of a lifetime. Here’s how a honeymoon gift list could work for you….

1. A more meaningful gesture

A honeymoon gift list holds more sentimental value than just asking for money. If you want to make memories out of the gifts that your guests give you, a honeymoon gift list is the perfect option. When enjoying all the honeymoon experiences and activities that your guests gifted you, you will think of them while doing so and you’ll be excited to tell them all about it. You could even send a photo with your thank you card after you return.


2. Allow your guests to help create your memories

Your guests will love to help you fund a gondola ride through Venice or hire a camper van around the Australian coast – all unforgettable experiences that money can, in fact, buy. With Buy Our Honeymoon, you can even accept gift suggestions. A honeymoon gift list means that guests can play their part in your once-in-a-lifetime trip before you’ve even set foot on the plane.


3. Tailor your honeymoon to suit you

Honeymoons are typically an honest reflection of the couple, mirroring their personalities, styles and tastes. As such, they are the ideal way for guests to help fund something that will always remain special to you. With Buy Our Honeymoon, you can include anything you can think of — from cocktails in the airport departure lounge and a picnic on the beach, to a safari adventure and pet care while you’re away. You get the funds to make your honeymoon happen, while your guests get to choose a present that can mean something to both you and them.


4. Simple and flexible approach

Whether you want a simple honeymoon fund or a detailed itinerary filled with activities, Buy Our Honeymoon’s service caters to all types of trip. You can mix open contributions, group gifts and single items on the same list and you can put your list in any order you choose and collect gift items into any categories you wish. You don’t have to have made all your plans in advance, and you can book your honeymoon with any travel agent you want.


5. Straightforward pay-in and pay-out

Instead of manually handling honeymoon cash contributions, an online honeymoon fund can do the hard work for you. With Buy Our Honeymoon, your guests choose from the gift list you’ve created and make a simple and secure online payment directly to your bank account. What’s more, Buy Our Honeymoon doesn’t take their service fee out of the gifts you’re given and you can choose from a variety of payment systems to best suit your needs. It’s easy to set up and there’s personal help for both you and your guests every step of the way.
