Jackets and Coats
Being out in the cold on your honeymoon has a different meaning to everyone. For those of us who prefer the overcast grey of the sky over the blinding heat of the sun, it’s a wonderland. Not only do we get to bask in the joys of winter, but we also get to dress for comfort and style with gorgeous jackets and coats. For the men, Calibre and Mr Porter have coats and jackets that will keep you warm and stylish during your winter adventures.

Given that your feet are at the frontline of the cold, it’s important to pack the right shoes. Boots that are waterproof and comfortable are going to be a big help on your winter honeymoon. R.M. Williams has great options for both men and women’s boots that are perfect for the winter weather!

Layers are going to be so important when you start out. Rug up in as much as possible, especially if your winter honeymoon includes snow! Wear leggings and long-sleeved tops in abundance!
Snow and Ski Gear
This is especially important if you’re heading up the Swiss Alps to ski with your significant other. If snow covered surfaces are your expertise, then you may already have gear to take with you. If not, consider picking some up on your next pre-honeymoon shopping trip. Otherwise, there are always rental places that will have snow gear in abundance! Depending where you’re going, you will need to scope out what is best to rent at your winter honeymoon destination and decide how much space to leave in your suitcase.

Just because it’s not the beach does not mean you can ditch the sunscreen on this holiday. This is a must for when the sun sneaks in through the clouds at midday. Winter honeymoon or not, there’s no escaping the sun. Pack it in with your moisturiser so you don’t miss it!
A Good Book
The only thing that sounds better than a full day of adventures in the snow is coming back to a toasty warm fire and curling up with a good book. It’s also a great pastime for the long hauls of travel time ahead of you. Pack your favourite classic or pick up a new one on the trip!
