Eberjay Intimates - the softest pjs I have! 

Sexy Lingerie: Obviously, I had to start with this one. TIme to put that lingerie from your bridal shower/bffs to use! If you’re only bringing a carry on and don’t have much space, just bring a couple items to make the honeymoon fun and show off the #sexybride look ;)






Camera: Your iPhone does not count. Try bringing a camera that isn’t your phone so that you and your boo can have all the quality time without your phone’s natural distractions.







Journal: Wherever you’re traveling, it may be nice to bring your journal and spend some time reflecting and being intentional.

Some prompts to get you started:

  • What are 5 things you and your partner want to accomplish in the first year of marriage?
  • What were your emotions on your wedding day?
  • List 20 things your grateful for.

Book: It’s your honeymoon, but girl still needs some time to herself! Being together 24/7 is fun and all, but there may be moments when one person wants to do a different activity. For example, my husband was going to the gym every morning but I preferred to hangout in our gorgeous outdoor space in the room. Bring a book or kindle with you for breaks on the beach, bedside reading, or airplane commutes.


Medicine: While I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, both my husband and I got food poisoning on our honeymoon! It was très romantique hearing each other vomit one after the other. Ultimate marriage test.

Bring your meds of choice (I prefer herbal) in case anything happens to be prepared for whatever situation may arise, though I hope it doesn’t!



Extras: There are so many other fun ideas for newleyweds to bring on their honeymoon, like matching luggage tags, shirts (I saw five couples while traveling that had matching husband/wifey shirts), special champagne or liquor if you've got a carry on, and so much more. But now that you've got the basics, everything else is a bonus :) 

Simple as that! Hope you have the best honeymoon ever!
