Yes, the Black Bridal Bliss 2016 Holiday Gift Guide wrapped last week (get full recap here). However we had to sneak in a bonus gift idea. For those of you itching for a last-minute getaway, consider a jaunt to the beautiful island of Nevis. Nevis is ripe for busy folks who need to hit the reset button post-holiday season and a perfect way to kick off 2017 or keep in save for an engagementmoon, honeymoon, babymoon or destination wedding location . This quaint island neighbors St. Kitts and is home to just 12,000 residents. The average temperature on this Caribbean jewel through the New Year is in the high 70s/low 80s.

Drink a mango colada poolside, soak up the warm island sun on a hammock, go hiking through a lush rain forest, take pictures in front of a picturesque waterfall (totally #TravelNoire worthy), chillax on a serene beach or eat yummy cuisine with locals on Pinneys Beach–the possibilities are virtually endless. They’ll be more fun and informative insider info on what to do, where to stay/eat, etc. on Nevis in upcoming Black Bridal Bliss posts next month. In the meantime, check out these Instagram posts from our recent visit and visit this site to get official Nevis 411.

Disclosure: A press trip was coordinated to facilitate this post.
