1/ Gifting an intimate and relaxing experience like a couple’s massage is the perfect way to ring in life as newlyweds. Pair it with a selection of essential oils and at-home extras. Gift “sides” and gift cards are available at one of our favorite spots, Indigo Massage and Wellness on Arsenal.

2/ For the vino-loving couple, you can gift a wine club membership—plus their favorite bottle of local wine—from a romantic St. Louis area spot like Chaumette Vineyards and Winery (oh, and they also have a spa!) for a memorable Missouri wine experience.

3/ The St. Louis Symphony is highly regarded as one of the best in the country, and you’ll have no problem finding a performance that will suit the tastes of the special couple. Pair the tickets with a framed score of the couple’s first dance song.

4/ Pair a posh set of measuring cups or locally made wooden spoons with an opportunity for the new couple test out their culinary skills with a fun date in the kitchen. Try Kitchen Conservatory in Clayton for a variety of class options.

5/ For the new-age couple, a fortune-telling session is a great way to allow them a glimpse into the future, but not with the stereotypical psychic. Pair a session of spiritual soul insights and intuitive readings with Lisa Serena of Soul Insights with a small spiritual care package that features crystals, sage, and other good vibes items from Mystic Valley.
