This past Christmas, my sister Brooke asked that instead of regular gifts, that we give her “experiences” instead. It ended up being so much fun thinking up experiences we could give her and it was so cool to see what everyone came up with. Honeymoon registries are very similar. They allow your guests the opportunity to gift you an incredible experience or memory, rather than a material gift like a toaster.
One of the benefits of registering with our newest sponsor, Traveler’s Joy is that groups can go in together on gifts so your sorority sisters could all pitch in on that $1000 camera. Since there are many honeymoon items that can be very expensive, almost all couples use this feature in some way. When setting up a registry couples can choose from a list of 50 theme based (think beach, cruise, or mountains) or location specific (think Italy or St. Lucia) item lists. With one-click items and experiences are added to your registry. You can edit or delete any item at any time and also add plenty more of your own.
If you aren’t sure where you want to go, Real Member Stories make researching fun. Each year thousands of couples send us Traveler’s Joy honeymoon stories and photos. With over 400 stories on the site now, the Real Honeymoon Stories section has become a popular resource for couples planning their dream honeymoon.Traveler’s Joy also has a Honeymoon Tipster. This one-on-one service helps couples decide where to stay after they select their honeymoon destination. After consulting with the couple over email and phone to learn more about their specific interests, a freelance travel writer from our team (each focuses on a particular part of the world) writes a personalized and detailed report on the area the couple intends to travel to. Since the writers aren’t travel agents, the advice is 100% unbiased. (There is a separate fee associated with this optional service.)
Here’s the best part: Traveler’s Joy is giving away $5,000 toward a honeymoon or first anniversary trip to one lucky couple that signs up with Traveler’s Joy between January 1, 2013 and April 30, 2013. The winner will be notified on May 8, 2013.
