A Gourmet Gift Guide for Your Valentine


Almost two weeks until we most of America publicly exclaims love for another in the form of a card, a bouquet or a chocolate. But please: I urge you to forego the stereotype. I believe in the marriage of form and function when it comes to gifting; especially when such gifts lead to memorable experiences and first-time opportunities. I find it most special when those experiences are handcrafted, adapted and shared in the kitchen or home. A marble board holds the latest batch of pound cake (which you only let yourself bake once a season), and a champagne bucket holds the celebratory toast in honor of a cherished accolade.

The following gifts seek not to fully satisfy your significant other (or yourself), but instead intend to motivate you to orchestrate those special moments -- whether in the form of a romantic dinner at home, a picnic on the lawn, or a hosted gathering with friends. Hover and click (or forward this blog post to him) if any catch your eye!
