We’re going to a wedding in May for someone I was good friends with in elementary school (we were best friends then, and our parents became good friends. We have communcication here and there though mostly see each other on Jewish holidays once a year).
According to their wedding website, they don’t need “stuff”, and because of that set up a honeymoon registry. (They’re going to BC, I’m pretty sure Vancouver). Though I know the logical thing would be to get them something from their honeymoon registry (or $ towards it), it would be nicer to get them something for their honeymoon. So, any ideas on what would be good items to get? (I’ve never been to BC so don’t really know what the area is like, or what “stuff” would be good for the area).

hmm, i THINK Vancouver is a hiking type place so maybe a nice picnic basket set? water bottles? if it rains there (i don’t know) maybe rain coats, nice hiking socks, gloves and such if it will be cold while they’re there

If they’re going to Vancouver, you could buy them passes to attractions in the area:
– Grouse Mountain, gondola passes or zipline tour
– wine tour (many companies offer this in all areas of BC, not just Van)
– Vancouver Aquarium passes
– dinner cruise
– Capilano Suspension Bridge passes
Those are a few I can think of right off the top of my head. You know the couple best so you’d be able to say what they’re interested in. My honeymoon registry has a list of “activities” people can buy us, if theirs has that feature you can spy on their planned activities and buy accordingly.

Do you know what they will be doing here? And if they are just staying in Vancouver or traveling around a bit? There is definitely lots of outdoor activities, especially hiking, camping, kayaking/canoeing, going to the beach.. But since they are getting married in May, they couldn’t go skiing at Whistler.. (But I’d suggest them to check it out, it’s gorgeous up there!)
Depends if you want to give them a gift certificate like to…..
-killer whale watching tour..
-a fancy dinner on top of Grouse Mountain..
– a horse drawn carriage ride trough Stanley Park..
– a sunset boat dinner cruise
Or a physical gift for them to take with them I definitely agree with a picnic basket for them to fill out with goodies to any of our gorgeous spots 🙂 Or a guide book or something like that, that can give an overview of the area and whats recommended.
They will love it here, and they can be active or can relax if they’d like. Feel free to ask any questions!

@Jillbean: @Silverblade: Thank you for those great lists. I’ll have to look at their registry and see if they’re planning on going any of those places. And a guidebook is always helpful. I’ll start researching for a good one.
@kingytobe: I love the idea of the picnic supplies. I think that’s always such a nice romantic thing to do. And from what I’ve heard Vancouver and BC in general is so beautiful, it’ll be a nice backdrop for it. 🙂
