Hey loves! I hope you had a nice weekend! I got out and did a little shopping and shared a relaxing evening or two with my David enjoying the warm breeze that was blowing through Dallas (now it’s chilly again!) Saturday morning I received a package in the mail from the Anderson Road Co. and I was super excited because it had David’s Valentine’s gift inside! Of course I couldn’t resist giving it to him a few days early so I can tell you without a doubt that he loved his gifts. Read on to see what I got him!
David is from San Antonio so when I say he loves spicy foods, I really mean it! I thought what better gift to get him than a homemade hot sauce making kit? The kit comes with two spice blends and four glass bottles for your hot sauce. Frankly, I’m quite in love with the little corks that act as bottle stoppers. The kit comes with an assortment of other kitchen tools needed to make the hot sauce as well as instructions.
When we finally get around to making the homemade hot sauce, I’ll let you know! I’m really excited to see how it turns out. There’s nothing better than making something at home and knowing that it’s made with good, safe ingredients! Here’s the link to where you can buy!
Another great Valentine’s Day gift I got for David was a set of leather bookmarks! David is an avid reader and loves to read books with historical themes. I’m seriously thankful to be dating a man who is an accomplished and well-read individual! I must admit that beyond what my mom had me read when I was homeschooled and what my professors made me read in college, I haven’t read a lot. Design books and books on etiquette and entertaining are usually my go-to choices when I do sit down to read.
One of the coolest things about these made in America leather bookmarks, is that the little loop at the top is for a pencil if you enjoy making notes in your books! How clever is that? Also, if you’ve ever walked into a leather good store like Dooney & Bourke, then you know the rich smell of leather and that’s what you get with these bookmarks. Seriously, I haven’t been able to stop smelling them! Here’s the link to the bookmarks! Enjoy!
