Where are you staying on the Island… which resort ?

That might be helpful info for us to know.

@BakeosaurusRex:  If your going to St. Lucia Sandals then do the private dinner on the beach.

@BakeosaurusRex:  I’m not sure if they do the private dinner on the beach at the Halcyon location but the Grand location does it. I’d recommend it if you could get it there. They’ll also help you fix up the room. We came back to our room after a long day on the beach and a bottle of wine, chocolates and flowers were waiting for us. I felt like they’d do anything we asked to accommodate us while we there.

@BakeosaurusRex:  Yes, you probably could. They gave us several options when we were looking at doing it. I’d just ask them in advance so they can be sure to it ready.

Nice Honeymoon (lol, slightly jealous)

And Sandals has sooo much going for… especially in St Lucia where so many great things are included like Water Sports, Diving, Golf… so that makes it harder to pick out something that would be extra special.

Maybe a Couples Massage ?  OR if he is an Athletic sort of guy… maybe a Sports Massage ?

I know those items are not included at the resort (extra charges)

Could be fun… and definitely memorable (especially if it is the couples one)

Not sure WHERE they do them tho… lots of resorts will come to your room, or do them on a patio etc.

Tough to make a bunch of recommendations when you say you don’t want to go off-site / do an excursion.

could you arrange for a massage after breakfast? a game of golf in the afternoon? i think the beach dinner idea is great too!

TO @BakeosaurusRex:  semi-serious / gag gifts … that tie into your Honeymoon on St Lucia might be fun (altho they’d require some planning to execute… or maybe the Staff could help out too)

A couple things that come to mind…

(Bearing in mind I totally don’t know what excursions etc you have planned for being on the Island)

1- All the Caribbean Islands make rum… (and Rum Punch).  You will no doubt enjoy some Rum while in St Lucia, be it regular, spiced or favoured… or in a Liqueur.

They also have their own local Beer Brands (think it is Piton in St Lucia)

A nice souvenir for a guy, might be a TShirt featuring the trademark of local Distillery / Brewery… or a particular brand.

* I got Mr TTR such a TShirt in Barbados, and he loves it.

2- Maybe something that features the Flag of St Lucia (or an actual small flag).  You might find that if you go the small flag route, it could be cheaper to order that here in NA before you go (as they’d be imported into St Lucia, so probably cost more)

OR look for a “Friendship Pin” for St Lucia & Canada

http://shop.flagshop.com/index.php/st-lucia.html

* The Flagshop is a Cdn Co. and they have stores right across Canada, or you can order on-line.

3- Another idea, maybe a CD featuring the Mongstar’s “St Lucia We Love”.  Now this isn’t top-drawer music… but it something that you’ll hear on the Island no doubt (we did) and it does have a catchy beat, and well who can deny the catch phrase “But I Must Come Back… St Lucia We Love”

* You could maybe find one there… or just download this Official Version with the cute video and burn it to a CD for him.

Anyhow, that is a few ideas off the top of my head.  No great investment… and kind of fun.

And any of these items are small enough to pack secretly away… even if you buy them here, before you go… so that he isn’t aware that you have them in your possession

Hope this helps,

PS… I’ll be sending you a PM too.
