The key is in the honeymoon packing. Honeymoons should be all about you and your spouse…not about shopping for toothpaste or sunscreen!  Here is a packing checklist we love:

Airline tickets or e-ticket confirmation
Passport/visas/driver’s license
Credit cards (take only those you’ll need)
Hotel/theater reservation fax confirmations
Traveler’s checks
Two sets of photocopies of all of the above, plus a photocopy of related medical and/or trip insurance coverage and prescriptions (carry one set with you, leave one in the hotel room)
Phone numbers for your doctor, house/cat sitter, and credit card companies (in case your cards are lost or stolen)
Prescription medicine (in the original bottle)
Travel locks (combination lock recommended — no key to lose!) and ID tags for luggage (inside and out)

Her Stash for a Week (tweak for destination, activities, season):
1 pair jeans or khakis (for cold airports and the plane)
