Vouchers were once considered the tackiest of wedding gifts but by now most men already own the perfect set of cutlery, toaster or bed linen.
We are not just talking about packed pensiones and Ibis outlets (although they are available) with the hotels. Gifted grooms can take their pick from Shangri-La, Ritz-Carlton and Sofitel properties.
When it comes to flights there’s also plenty of choice, with all major airlines such as Emirates, Etihad, Virgin Atlantic and Qantas on board.
The real draw card is for wedding guests who haven’t had time to organise a present before the big day. At the last minute you can organise a digital card or if you have 2-3 business days up your sleeve, a printed card. To personalise the digital message you can attach a video card (just make sure you get the lighting right).
Not only will you be giving the grooms the freedom to create their own holiday but you might be helping them in the bedroom department according to Hotelgift and Flightgiftcard founder Loes Daniels.
"40 percent of couples interviewed said that their sex was permanently better after travel together."
"Chores, errands, work obligations, plain old-fashioned stress--in everyday life, all these things eat into the time couples spend together," Daniels told Huffpost. "On vacation, by contrast, there's much more time for intimacy and sex. The effects of such intense bonding can linger long after the holiday itself is over.
"In one 2013 survey, 40 percent of couples interviewed said that their sex was permanently better after travel together, whether that was a weekend getaway or an extended honeymoon."
With that much action you can expect one hell of a Thank You card.
