These gifts ideas for your wife are a perfect complement to your next romantic vacation to a tropical destination. Some of these gift ideas are practical, and some of them are romantic. But all of them are sure to tell your wife that you want her to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy every single moment of your trip together.

Immunizations and medical travel insurance

Before you lovebirds go anywhere, make sure that you have taken care of your health needs! Check with your doctor about any special immunizations shots you should get for your tropical destination. The last thing you want if to wind up in the hospital with a serious illness that could have easily been avoided. And if you do, unfortunately, end up in the hospital, by purchasing medical travel insurance ahead of time, you can protect yourself against any nightmare hospital bills. Taking care of both of your healthcare needs is one of the best gifts you can give your wife before you go on vacation.

Costume jewelry/wedding ring replicas

When you are going on a romantic vacation, it’s nice to be able to take your jewelry with you, especially your wedding ring. Imagine how disappointing it would be, though, if your jewelry got stolen or lost. That would be the absolute worst memory from your vacation. So instead of your wife taking her precious wedding and diamond engagement rings with her on your trip, you could get her cubic zirconia, or crystal replica rings made with plated sterling silver. "Diamond" stud earrings are a good idea too. Classic diamond studs are also a staple in most women's jewelry wardrobes.

A string of faux pearls are lovely for a nice evening out, and you don't have to worry too much if they get lost or stolen on your trip.

Housecleaning while you are away

Even if you have someone coming in to water the plants of pick up the mail while you are away, it's nice to come home to a fresh, clean house. Your wife may not know about this gift from you until you get back from your tropical vacation, but she'll certainly appreciate coming home to a spotless kitchen!

Unique luggage tags

On a luggage carousel, it's surprising how similar bags look when they wind by on the platform. To prevent someone from accidentally picking up your bags, outfit yours and your wife's luggage with brightly colored tags.

Arrange for flowers and a gift basket to be waiting in your room upon arrival

A fruit basket, assorted chocolate delights, massage oil and spa products, late-night gourmet snacks, champagne, wine and cheese, romantic 'toys'—there are so many different gift baskets to choose from. Your wife will be delighted to open the door to your room and find a lovely assortment of treats and goodies waiting for her, especially if you have had to travel a long distance to get to your tropical destination. You can order gift baskets online and have them delivered to the hotel, or if you are staying in a high-end, luxury hotel, they depending on the hotel you are staying in, you may be able to order the gift basket through the hotel's concierge or guest services desk.

Slippers for the hotel room

A pair of gold slippers to wear around the hotel room is not only a pretty gift, but it’s also a somewhat hygienic gift too. No matter how clean your hotel room seems, it’s always nice to slip something between your toes and the carpet.

Romantic homemade coupons to do various fun things while you are on vacation

Give your wife a book of handmade coupons she can cash in for some romantic fun: a back rub, a foot massage, you serenading her on the beach as the sun goes down. Use your imagination and have fun coming up with romantic things the two of you can do together on your tropical vacation.

Sometimes the Best Gifts Are the Ones That Are Free!

Nothing says "I love you" quite like giving your wife space for her stuff in your suitcase when you travel!

Space in your suitcase for more of your wife's stuff

This is one of the best gifts you can give your wife before heading off on an exotic vacation. Your wife gets to take more of her clothes, and she doesn't even have to carry them! If you know anything about what women go through to get dressed and go out for a nice evening, you'll know that having extra room for her make-up, shoes, accessories, and pretty lingerie will be greatly appreciated!
