Photo Books:  With their baby about to walk down the aisle, Mom and Dad may be extra sentimental this holiday season.  Indulge them with a walk down memory lane, courtesy of a custom photo book featuring favorite childhood memories. A photo book is also an excellent way to help your future in-laws get to know you better. Mpix offers a range that is both beautiful and easy to design.

Luggage:  His and hers suitcases are a classic couple’s gift, and the perfect way to help them prep for your wedding away.  If Mom and Pops are pretty tech savvy, opt for a bag like the Raden A22, with a built in scale, USB charging port and Bluetooth tracking.

Kindle E-reader:  Whether they enjoy it sitting by the resort pool or in front of the fire at home, a Kindle e-reader will be your parent’s most-loved gift. Not only is far more packable then paperbacks, the no-glare screen is easy on eyes and a charge can last weeks.

Destination Wedding Gift Ideas for Groomsmen

Corkcicle Canteen:  If a water bottle doesn’t seem like a very exciting gift, you haven’t checked out a Corkcicle Canteens. In 25 and 60-ounce sizes, they are perfect for keeping groomsmen hydrated through the bachelor party and all-day destination wedding excursions.  And, since they keep beverages cold for 24 hours, or hot for 12, they keep going as long as the party does.

Weekender Bag:  A classic weekender bag is a must-have for a reason.  These hard-working aren’t just good Friday through Sunday; they’ll serve as everything from a gym bag to a carry-on.  Have them personalized so your crew can find their stuff easily.

Travel Hammock:  Whether he stings in up in the backyard or stops mid hike to relax next to a waterfall, he will love lazing in a travel hammock.  The Kammock Roo Double Camping Hammock is lightweight and stuffs down into a remarkably small bag, making it ultra packable.

Destination Wedding Gift Ideas for Bridesmaids

Foldable Flats : Nothing ruins a night of dancing faster than sore feet. Give her the gift of comfort with a pair of foldable flats. Easy to stash in a handbag, these surprisingly stylish shoes are just as perfect for airports and wedding receptions as they are for Christmas parties and New Year’s celebrations.

Tile Tracking System: Have a bestie who is always searching for her keys? The Tile Mate Finder system attaches to anything and, by using an app to ring the item, makes essentials easy to find.  Not only can she attach a Tile to her suitcase, handbag or wallet to make every day life simpler, you can also avoid the hoopla of lost resort room keys.

Luxury, Travel-Friendly Toiletries: Grabbing last-minute travel toiletries at the drug-store might leave her with limp hair at your destination wedding.  Stuff your bridesmaids’ stocking with scaled-down sizes of their favorite hair and skin products.  Even better, Burberry Beauty solid perfume is a frequent-flyer favorite because it doesn’t need to go into a liquid bag.  Likewise, a massage bar from Lush is a decadent moisturizer that pop easily into a carry-on.
