The Ultimate Gift for NewlywedsWords by Izzy Rosales

Gift-giving is my love language– I blame my shopaholic Leo placements for that. There’s just something so delightful in riding the secondhand wave of excitement from a friend unwrapping the perfect gift. But as I’ve become more environmentally cautious, I’ve begun to steer my gift-giving practices from commercial objects to more memorable moments.
When it comes to needing a gift for multiple people, for example, friends who are getting married, I’ve been looking for unique and eco-friendly ways to gift them. Thanks to Tinggly, I’m able to give the gift of memories that last a lifetime all while helping the planet.
Since 2014, Tinggly has been offering memorable travel experiences in a box–literally! When you order a Tinggly gift box, you give the recipient the chance to pick an activity from over 100 countries worldwide. With every order, Tinggly removes 11lbs of plastic from our oceans, part of their commitment to gift-giving with a green conscience.
Tinggly’s experience gift boxes are perfect for the couple that loves to travel and immerse themselves in their environment. When you choose to give a Tinggly experience gift box you have the choice to send or receive an instantly emailed e-voucher for a travel experience to redeem, or you can send the voucher through a biodegradable gift box made from recycled and eco-friendly materials.
With over one thousand travel experiences available for redemption, Tinggly has something for everyone! Are you shopping for foodies? Give them the experience of learning how to make authentic Neapolitan pizza with world-renowned pizza chefs in New York. How about the outdoorsy couple that always posts the most Instagrammable nature shots? They can get breathtaking photos of the Mediterranean sea as they tour the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy.
When the couple receives their voucher, they can redeem one of the experiences that are best tailored to their interests. While Tinggly doesn’t cover the cost of getting to the destination, they do offer the tickets for the experience the couple chooses. Tinggly vouchers never expire, so there’s no need to rush into redeeming them!
Maybe the couple is more interested in relaxing in a beautiful location. Instead of giving an experience voucher, you can give them a 1-2 night hotel stay in a destination of their choice. If you know the destination of your giftee’s wedding or honeymoon you can give them the luxury of a 3-5 star hotel stay in that location. Just like the experience vouchers, these don’t expire either.
So how do you know which box is the right fit for your giftees? At first glance, seeing over a dozen options to choose from threw me for a little curve but after spending some time on the site I found it’s important to know your travelers’ and your budget.
If you know your couple has a full itinerary planned for their romantic Parisian getaway but are staying at a budget hotel, upgrade them to a 5-star hotel with the Paris, je t’ame hotel box. Or if you know your couple will be yearning to experience one of the many breathtaking waterfalls in Maui, they can redeem a guided waterfall hike (and chocolate tour!) in the “Just Married” experience box. Tinggly’s various gift boxes at different price points allow you to give an incredible experience without breaking the bank!
Most of the experiences I’ve mentioned throughout are ones that are included in the Just Married gift box. This box is full of romantic and exciting experiences, making it perfect for honeymooners. Another box worth mentioning is the Fun Together gift box. With over 800 experiences, this box has something for everyone! There are more casual experiences included within it, which might make for a perfect rainy day travel gift.Tinggly is definitely going to step up my gift-giving game in the future and solidify my title as Expert Gifter.
