the struggle of the never-ending honeymoon packing list: what’s on mine

Ah, the honeymoon. The much-anticipated, over-glamorized, once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
A plan-aholic’s delight and nightmare.  (five bikinis should do… or do I need a sixth?)

J and I will be headed to the beach for 8 days of sun, sand, and other s-words. 😉 I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate our marriage than some sweet, much-craved alone time. With both of us being major introverted home-bodies to begin with (and especially after the whirlwind of forced socialization called a wedding reception), I can only predict that our greatest adventures and furthest explorations will occur in the bedroom- not on roller coasters, rock climbing, or surfing lessons. Because of that, so many of the “ultimate honeymoon packing list” pins I found, simply didn’t fit our taste, or worse, didn’t take into consideration the comfort or safety necessary in bedroom activities, and I was compelled to start from scratch in creating the list-maker’s mother load of beach honeymoon packing lists.

As I began creating my packing list, and of course scouring the all-wise Pinterest for any last thing I may be leaving out, it finally came down to these items, broken down for you by category:
