Honeymoon Gadget Essentials

We've planned the wedding registry, contemplated all the big ticket registry items and focused on the handful of gadgets you'll really need for your wedding day, so what's left? The honeymoon of course! One of my favorite honeymoon planning websites, The Knot, features a great packing list for your big trip. On it, they put a digital camera on the Must Have list. While I know you won't have oodles of room, here are a few gadgets I don't think you should leave home without:

  • Electrical converter/adapter - No matter where you are going or what gadgets you bring along it's always smarter, easier and less expensive if you bring your adapters and converters with you. You can put it off until you get to your destination, but it's just another shopping trip you don't want to take. Check out selections at gadget stores like Best Buy, Circuit City and Fry's and make sure you ask an employee if your gadgets will work with the converter you've chosen.
  • Charger - What's the point of packing a camera and cell if you can't charge it after a day? You can grab great travel chargers when you pick up your adapters and they shouldn't cost more than $20. If your honeymoon is after this July, consider getting the Wild Charger, a sleek ultra thin pad that delivers full power to the devices you charge on it. Also, this could solve your adapter problem for gadgets like your cell or iPod, as you would just need one adapter for the wildcharger.
  • Camera and Digital Camera - Sure most of your honeymoon will be a private experience you share with your spouse, but if you want to capture memories to last a lifetime you better pack your camera. I suggest a small digital camera and an easy to use digital camera like the Pure Flip Video or the tiny but glamorous Samsung Camcorder Alicia Keys uses.
  • iPod and traveling iPod speakers - If you're going somewhere rural, you likely won't have access to music so you should utilize the fact that today's technology allows us to be our own DJs, whenever, wherever. Pack your MP3 player - if you're really pressed for space you can even use your shuffle - and a small speaker set like Griffin's Journi speaker, which can be collapsed into a small, clutch-sized shape and thrown into your suitcase or carry on. This way, you can play your special song the whole trip and create a memorable soundtrack.

We found a laptop to be useful to go online and find places nearby (i.e., restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, etc.) and directions on how to get there.
