Valentine’s Day is coming up, and if you’ve got a cooking enthusiast in your house you know a good meal or at least a plate of decorated cookies is coming your way, so how do you reciprocate? With cooking tools and lavish ingredients, of course! Some of these links are affiliate links, which means I get a small commission if you purchase them. Happy shopping!
Good wine to go with dinner! Avaline is organic, vegan, and made by Cameron Diaz so you can’t go wrong. It can be found locally at Sprouts and a few other natural shops.
Fatworks gift certificate: healthy fat is good for the heart, and Fatworks boasts the heart-healthiest fats there are-ghee, grassfed tallow, duck fat and more. Any cook would love to receive one of these bundles.
Have a kid who loves to cook (or a spouse who loves to cook with the kids)? A KidStir membership is a great way to make sure their Valentine’s Day is memorable. The company ships a kid friendly utensil along with recipe cards (that fit neatly into a notebook). You can even get an apron and mitt if you want.
Pink pans! These are pretty girly but would be gorgeous in the right kitchen. Bonus points if your loved one also has a pink Kitchenaid.
Really you can’t go wrong with anything by Kitchenaid, and this spoon and utensil set is a more budget friendly option.
Cast iron teapot. I may be slightly obsessed with cast iron, but I recently bought one similar to this and LOVE it. It’s cute enough to sit out on the stove top, boils water fast, and is substantial and sturdy. It feels like quality.
What good is a teapot without some gorgeous cups? The kitchen centric among us love a good fancy cup for their everyday hot drink. These are beautiful and come in a set of six, or, for something more utilitarian and modern but equally gorgeous, try these.
What’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? The pickiest ingredient connoisseur couldn’t complain about these luscious bars. They are organic, fair trade, vegan, and good.
Every aspiring chef needs an apron (or a dozen of them) to keep their quarantine athleisure free from spills and splatters. This one is beautiful and feminine, and these are more utilitarian while still looking sharp.
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
