One of the many reasons that I love the spring and summer is that it’s wedding season. Love is definitely in the air! A wonderful way to help newlyweds start their life together is by putting together a charming and thoughtful gift like a picnic basket for two filled with goodies they will cherish forever. Plus, it’s the perfect “first date” after the lovebirds tie the knot!

What’s more romantic than a picnic with the love of your life, right?

The basket should include the standard picnic goodies but also unique and timeless gifts the couple will use in the future. Think outside of the box (or picnic basket)! Our picnic gift basket includes…

A personalized picnic blanket or travel mat that will be used for many family picnics to come. The one pictured is personalized with the words “Cuddle Time” which is adorable! Also included is a decorative wine box that commemorates their special day and holds a delicious bottle of wine the happy couple can enjoy during their picnic.

Romantic throw pillows that can be used to cuddle up during the picnic and can be used on their bed as well.

And, finally it’s fun to include a little game they can play during their picnic. So today I’m sharing my Newlyweds Mad Libs printable. It’s super cute and will keep the couple laughing during their special date!

Putting the gift basket together is very simple. Just place all of the contents inside a pretty picnic basket and give it a finishing touch by adding a bow and a tag.
