You’ve probably heard of, seen, or owned a Le Creuset dutch oven. They are one of the most popular wedding gifts for newlyweds and, like KitchenAid stand mixers, a kitchen staple for adults everywhere. When I was shopping for my wedding registry earlier this year, an employee at Williams-Sonoma encouraged us not to register for a Le Creuset, but instead a Staub dutch oven. I became curious and started noticing my favorite food bloggers posting meals in Staub cookware on Instagram—and I recognized that my favorite fast casual food place, Cava, used them to display food. THEN, we tested dutch ovens at Reviewed and our favorite overall was the Staub! Clearly these dutch ovens are hot right now, so get them for the person in your life who loves cooking. You can’t go wrong.
One of our favorites for this is Barnes & Noble, considering that they also have a Starbucks located within about half of them. Nothing goes better with books than coffee. They can also utilize it on the drive-thru on the way to work in the morning, so they can get their favorite single-serve cup without spending their own cash. Depending on how much you opt for, you could be the hero that bought them coffee all month long. Some men just get more enjoyment from books than movies, especially if they’re the type of guy who says, “You know, that wasn’t how it happened in the book,” when you guys hit an AMC together. That’s being insightful into their hobbies.
This thoughtful tea kit is a great Christmas gift for those who love hot drinks on cold, wintry days.

"I bought this for my son (a chemical engineer) for his birthday. He was very impressed with the… more quality of materials and how complete the set was. I had found other brew kits online, but they were made of plastic and other inferior materials that taint the flavor of the "brew" so this was a great find for a great price. Overall, I am completely satisfied with the product and the company. It was delivered the next day! I will absolutely be purchasing other items from Man Crates in the future!” - Deborah less

To overcome the common problem people faced as to what to give one’s spouse each year, an American author by the name of Emily Post, who wrote on the topic of etiquette, was the first to recommend a list of anniversary gift themes which was published in 1922 in her book titled 'Etiquette’. In that book, she listed suggestions for the first anniversary, followed by the fifth anniversary, and then every five years or so up until the 25th, and concluded with the 50th wedding anniversary. The American National Retail Jeweler Association expanded on this list in 1937 by filling in the missing years up to the 14th wedding anniversary, and the subsequent multiples of five up to the 50th year.

Most experience events, if not all, should also have you included in the initial cost. It’s not much of an experience if they don’t have someone to go with, and if you’re a best friend or sibling, you know them intimately enough to get something they’ll truly, deeply enjoy. That’s an experience that they’ll want to share with you. The biggest mistake that experience day shoppers make, is not including themselves and running into financial problems. Just understand those experience days, on average, don’t include the cost of transit, tolls, food, drink, etc.
