Before the happy couple can fly off to their honeymoon, they need a few things to make it the perfect start to married life. And like the good friend or family member you are, you want to help them out. Honeymoon gifts for the couple will ensure they're packed and booked to go on their dream newlywed trip. While you could simply contribute to their wedding registry's honeymoon fund, travel accessories go the extra miles to support their wanderlust. From airline and hotel gift cards to new luggage and personalized ways to track their adventures, these are the best honeymoon gifts whether you're shopping for a couple's shower offering or a wedding present.

1. The Knot Honeymoon Journal

Step one to executing a dream honeymoon: this diary. This honeymoon journal helps couples plan, enjoy and remember their trip. They'll start by answering questions and reading travel tips as they decide where to go, then can capture their honeymoon memories by responding to prompts, so they can reflect and relive them for years to come. Honestly, you could give this as early as an engagement gift.

2. Airline Gift Card

4. Personalized Passport Covers

With over 1,000 reviews and a five-star rating, Monos' Carry-On Pro Plus is the suitcase to gift for the honeymoon if the couple didn't register for a specific model.
