This week icelolly are teaming up with new ITV show 'Gift Wrapped' to send some lucky couples on the honeymoon of a lifetime! To prepare them, we've come up with our top tips to help the honeymoon go off without a hitch.
Slippery when wet
If you plan on honeymooning in the spring or summer, bear in mind that the weather in the Caribbean can be quite hit and miss during this time. Unless you are looking to spend a number of afternoons indoors, you may want to look elsewhere...
It’s not just buffet food on offer at ultra-inclusive resorts; 5-star destinations offer fine dining restaurants in truly romantic settings. If you want a really memorable experience, you may even be able to enjoy your meal on a private beach in front of a beautiful sunset.
Lie back and relax
You don’t need to fly long haul to experience paradise, lounge on a Bali bed together and sip rum cocktails. Just be careful not to poke your better half with a drinks umbrella!
On the most memorable holiday of your life, you want something that's just right. A sofa bed in a studio room might be a great idea when you only need a destination base, but when on honeymoon you need something a little plusher where you can cosy up and enjoy some cheeky morning lie-ins.
From dusk ‘til dawn
Set the alarm clock and enjoy a beautiful sunrise together. If staying ultra-inclusive you can even order a glass of bucks fizz to toast your new lives together. You can always go back to sleep afterwards.
Take a romantic stroll together along the waters’ edge and breathe in the refreshing sea air. It will put a spring in your step and give you both an appetite for a hearty meal.
Discover the local history by enjoying an exciting or cultural excursion. You can absorb the country's past together and imagine each other in a toga!
icelolly.com is delighted to be involved with the ITV show Gift Wrapped featuring real life husband and wife team Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
