So I’m a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding next weekend – very exciting! I didn’t get her anything from her registry and wasn’t able to go to her shower because I’m far away. My mom got her a nice gift from her registry that is from our family, so that makes me feel a little better. I was anticipating that her MOH was planning a lingerie shower for her the night before her wedding but it seems that is no longer happening.
I feel really bad that I haven’t done much for her as a bridesmaid, so I want to put together a thoughtful "personal" gift for her honeymoon. I don’t want to get her lingerie or anything X rated, but I was thinking some sweet things to usher her into married life. They’re going on an Alaskan cruise, too, so I thought I could include that somehow too.
Only problem – I’m not creative. The one and only thing on my list so far is a soy candle that melts into massage oil. So c’mon, hive, help me think up some nice things to do as a gift for her!!

What about chocolates and wine, a CD of romantic music, a cozy blanket?

why don’t you find out what cruise they will be on and get her an excursion (once you find out the cruise line/time, you can go online and book the excursion)? you could also put together a basket of things: sunblock, passport/ticket holder (i know they won’t need a passport, but they could still use it as a ticket holder and reuse it later), travel-size toothpaste/deodarant/shampoo/etc., gum, candy, magazine/book for the plane ride. you could also contact the cruise ship and ask them to make a basket of champagne/fruit/chocolate with a card to be placed in their cabin upon arrival.

These are great ideas. I would say that anything you would want on a cruise would be great. Maybe get her some nice, comfortable sleepwear? It won’t be X rated and she’ll love the gesture.

Thanks everyone! A nice sunblock is a great idea. I think I’m going to definitely add that to an assortment of mini bath products. Any other ideas?

A pack of silk rose petals for fiance to spread out on the bed or around the tub? Maybe aome bubble bath or little massage sets.
a gift card to their favorite restraunt and a reservation when they get back? I think that would be great–it would be a nice welcome home type of thing.
