Wedding Gift List
We both appreciate that many of you will want to give us a gift to celebrate our wedding and we would love to receive lots of lovely new presents, but as we live overseas we face issues which are not common to traditional gift giving – mainly that we live in a tiny flat and it’d be logistically impossible for us to bring all of the wonderful gifts you’d give us back within a 20kg luggage allowance!!! And beautiful breakable things are not something I’d choose to send by post!
we’ve decided not to have a wedding list as such but would prefer
contributions our honeymoon.
We’re planning on taking a longish honeymoon to India, probably
to Rajasthan, hopefully in the next year (work leave permitting) and have
included some of the things we’d like to do on that trip that you might
like to treat us to. These are listed as Honeymoon Treats.
We’ve included links where we can so that you can see what
you’d be buying for us (right click to open them in a new window) –
and of course after we’ve been there will be lots of pictures so you can
see exactly how it was.
Some of the items listed are expensive so you can chose to
contribute to one of those instead if you’d like.
you’ve been to India yourself and have a favourite hotel, restaurant or
hideaway and want to share that with us we’d love to be treated to
places or things you’ve loved too. We’ve both been to India before and
done it “backpacker style” so would love to be spoiled and be treated
by you to the trip of a lifetime for our honeymoon.
Email one of us, or firstname.lastname@example.org
and if you want to nominate something and we'll update the website every
now and then.

of the links are from touristy websites which we won’t be booking through – they’re just to give you an idea of where
we’re intending to go – for a more general overview of the area try
the lonely planet or Rajasthan tourism sites by clicking on these links:
If you really want to buy us something that’ll last the rest of our lives we’ve listed some things on the next page that we’d really like and appreciate or need. You can nominate something you’d like your money to go towards. These can be found below the Honeymoon list.
