Rocco Forte Hotels

Wedding season is well and truly underway, and with countless occasions in your calendar, choosing what to buy the happy couple is never easy. Be inspired with our wedding gift ideas—experiences that will make a lasting impression and create memories to treasure for a lifetime.

A wine tasting experience

While a bottle of Champagne is a universally beloved wedding gift, bestowing some wine wisdom makes a thoughtful alternative. Consider a wine tasting experience for two, where they’ll sample and learn about fine vintages. Verdura Resort’s Sicilian Wine Tasting Journey will introduce them to the island’s best drops.

A relaxing couple’s massage

What better way to decompress after the excitement of the wedding than with an indulgent couple’s massage? A calming and reviving treat, Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt’s Romantic Moments experience includes a massage in a sumptuous double suite decorated with rose petals, with Champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries.

A romantic 6-course dinner

If the newlyweds are discerning gourmands, they’ll adore locking eyes over a long, leisurely dinner of exquisitely prepared food. For an Italian culinary experience like no other, Hotel de Russie’s 6-course tasting menu for two will delight them. Expertly prepared by chef Fulvio Pierangelini, the dinner will be served under the stars in the hotel’s Secret Garden in the heart of Rome.

A stylish city break

Give the happy couple something to look forward to once they’ve returned from honeymoon with a captivating city break. Getting acquainted with a new destination is a great way to kick-start their journey through married life. Staying in the historic Brown’s Hotel, our London City Break will let them unlock Mayfair’s finest shopping streets and art galleries.

A city walking tour

Presenting newlyweds with a guided city tour gives the gift of discovery. Whether choosing one in their hometown, so they can be tourists in their own city, or perhaps in their honeymoon destination, it’s an inspired way for them to explore somewhere together. Our Edinburgh walking tour for two takes them around its charming cobbled lanes with a guide, and includes a 2-night stay at The Balmoral Hotel.
