Valentine’s Day is over but that doesn’t mean the displays of affection have to end. There are gifts that say “I love you” and gifts that say “Let’s grow together”. I found two that I thought were absolutely lovely.
This Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom Cookbook is a beautiful guide to everything couples need to know about cooking for two, from stocking a kitchen to quick weeknight dinners to preparing a holiday feast.
To create this cookbook, Gayle Pirie and John Clark have drawn from their experience as restaurant chefs and on their shared history as a married couple. They have cooked in some of San Francisco’s best restaurants for nearly twenty years, so they know how to make food taste delicious. But they also know what it’s like to come home from a long day of work and want to create a comfortable haven for their family. In these pages, Gayle and John have brought together dozens of their own favorite dishes that can create hundreds of family meals. Cost $12.84 on Amazon.
Sometimes communicating properly can be one of the biggest challenges between couples. Potter Style created the Our Q&A a Day love journal for couples that prompts you to explore your love for each other over the course of three years. Our Q&A a Day provides a question for every day of the year, with enough space for two people to jot down a one- or two-sentence response. The journal offers a variety of questions; some may address the relationship (“Where would you like to travel with your partner?”); others suggest writing something about each other (“What does your partner’s laugh sound like?”); many are simply questions that each person answers individually (“What is your top priority today?”). Over a three-year period, both writers can see how their answers compare, contrast, and change as they create a lasting keepsake of their relationship. Cost $12.00 on Amazon.
