Los Cabos Mexico Destination Wedding Gifts & Holiday Gift Ideas
Since the holiday season is upon us, Rich & Kitch wanted to share the gifts we got for our wedding guests, bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents of the bride, parents of the groom, and bride & groom gifts for each other! The holiday season is always a great time to show the ones you love most how much you care about them. The same thing goes for everyone that attends & plays a role in your wedding day - especially if they are traveling to your destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico! Some of the gifts in this post are more wedding-related, but others make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, & other special occasions for your loved ones!
The Christmas before our destination wedding, we decided to get a little something for everyone who had committed to coming to our destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. To stick with our destination wedding / traveling to Cabo theme, I made luggage tags on Shutterfly for everyone. I uploaded a photo from Cabo on the front and put the guest's name & phone number on the back. Shutterfly has a bunch of cute luggage tag templates too, so you could add your wedding monogram/date if you want to make them more customized. If you need help creating a custom design for your luggage tag, please contact us here!
To do something extra for our wedding party &immediate family members, we gifted them passport holders, too. Everyone LOVED these thoughtful, themed Christmas gifts! It made them even more excited for our destination wedding & they were useful gifts that everyone got to travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with!
GIFTS FOR MOM
Mother of the Bride: Picture Frame
Mother of the Groom: Picture Frame
Mother of the Bride & Mother of the Groom: Since we were getting married shortly after Mother’s Day, we wanted to do a little something extra for our moms, so we got vases engraved for them from Etsy!
GIFTS FOR DAD
Father of the Bride: Picture Frame
Father of the Bride & Father of the Groom: Money Clips
I was able to send in a picture of my handwriting to have a saying engraved on the money clips, so we decided to write “to keep your money safe” as a joke for our dads financially supporting us all these years! We also got married on Father’s Day, so we wanted to get them another gift, & since we went deep sea fishing in Cabo, we thought these were cute: FOB Fishing Hook & FOG Fishing Hook
WEDDING PARTY GIFTS
We got tank tops made for everyone since I thought it would be fun to get a picture, and who doesn’t love wearing a tank top when you’re in Mexico?! I ordered these tank tops for the girls & these ones for the guys, and we had the sayings added on at a local print shop. You could also order pre-made shirt designs on Etsy!
Getting Ready Robes were ordered from Etsy & I added sayings on the back of each – Maid of Honor, Bridesmaid, Mother of the Bride, & Mother of the Groom. Since the girls were wearing peach bridesmaid dresses, I decided to get robes in teal, which was our other wedding color, then I got the mom’s robes in a peach/coral color! I put them in these cute bags from Amazon and added a shot glass from Cabo to each bag!

The main gifts for our groomsmen were these flasks which had their initials & sayings on each – Best Man, Groomsman, & Dad. We put the gifts in boxes from Amazon & bought cigars to add to them when we were in Cabo. We also bought tequila for the guys to fill up their flasks while getting ready on the wedding day!
MAID OF HONOR GIFTS
Taylor, who has been my best friend since first grade, is also a nurse, so I got her a "there in a heartbeat" bracelet which could not have been more fitting.
BEST MAN GIFTS
Richie's brother Johnny turned 21 right before our destination wedding, so we thought this bottle opener was fitting and we had it engraved with “from best brother to best man.”
