    I would love the hotels since I get to pick when and where.

    I would SOOO love the hotel gift. Especially since it would be a nice treat I doubt they would feel good about spending money on themselves!

    Edit: plus this point… “2 or 3 nights in a hotel could be anywhere from $300-900+ value depending on where” I would jump ALL OVER that!

    I love travel (and also have a crapload of Hilton points!), so would be psyched about getting the hotel stay. But yeah, I would also be worried about projecting my preferences on to them. I also feel like people who don’t travel a lot don’t necessarily appreciate the value of your hard-earned points/miles (I’ve been a little burned there).

    Given that they’re good friends, I don’t think it would hurt to ask them which they’d prefer.

    At first I thought cash, but since they aren’t having a honeymoon and they can pick when and where they want to go, I’d give them the hotel. Great gift!
