There are some people who are amazing gift givers. You know, the “We’re going up in a hot air balloon and I’ve hired Lady Gaga to serenade us the whole time,” crowd.
For the rest of us, anniversaries and birthdays can be a bit of a challenge. And it’s not for loving your partner any less. Maybe your partner isn’t big on material gifts, or they’re the type of person who likes to buy things for themselves whenever they get the urge, leaving you scrambling to find the perfect gift for the person who has everything. Or maybe you’ve already used all your best gift ideas on past birthdays and anniversaries.
No matter the situation, everyone’s gotta eat. The best bet when you aren’t sure what else to get your partner is a great dinner. After all, the saying ‘the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach’ has certainly held up quite well. Even if you already have a place in their heart, a little love for the palate, and tantalizing the taste buds can’t hurt.
Best of all, this gift can be as personalized as you want, and can be accomplished from the comfort of your own home without getting out your apron and arguing over who has to do the dishes.
Without further ado, we present you with our expert itinerary for an amazing at-home dinner experience that will wow your partner for any occasion (especially anniversaries).
If your go-to for special occasions was a luxurious, romantic dinner for two, but the pandemic sort of derailed your plans, worry not. You can absolutely recreate the luxury dining experience, unmasked, and right from the comfort of your home.
The World Caviar Gift Box is perfect for the fine diner who has nowhere to dine. Picture this: you tell your sweetheart to wear their best outfit, you both get dressed to the 9s. Put the romantic music on and light a few candles. Then, you whip out the box.
Inside, you’ve got Russian Osetra Karat, White Sturgeon and Siberian Osetra Aurora Caviar, and a mother of pearl caviar spoon. All ready to be presented on your table and wow your dinner guest.
What are you waiting for?
If you’re looking for one of those culinary experiences that you’ll remember for years to come, look no further. What could be better for a special occasion than sweet, buttery lobster and savory, juicy steak?
This five-star meal can be yours, delivered to your door, and comes with everything from shrimp cocktail to seafood spoons to gingham napkins. All you need to supply is candles for over-the-top ambiance and you’re in business. Bonus: you can make it a meal for two, or a meal for four if you want to celebrate in a group.
