Kitchen Gift Guide: The Newlyweds

PBS Food has created this guide as suggested gifts ideas. We do not endorse any specific product listed here. We recommend comparison shopping and reading expert and customer reviews to make educated decisions.

Cooking Lessons

What could be more romantic than sharing cooking lessons? Whether you are both new to the kitchen or seasoned pros looking for new skills, cooking together can be a fun exercise. Many professional culinary schools offer classes to the public.



Nothing sets the mood for a romantic dinner or date night at home better than a nice bottle of wine. Send the newlyweds in your world a shipment of wine from one of the many home delivery services or from your favorite local winery.

Pasta Pot for 2

Its often said that its easier to cook for one or four than it is to cook for two. Well, we disagree, especially when you try this special pasta pot specifically designed to provide portions for two.

Food Processor

Let’s face it: Chopping and mixing ingredients can get pretty tedious at times, especially for a more complicated recipe. Don’t let that be an excuse to avoid spending time together — a food processor will not only save them time and effort, it might keep them from ordering a pizza.

Old-Fashioned Popcorn Maker

Money is tough for many couples. So help your favorite couple save some money on movies. Combine an old-fashioned popcorn maker with a subscription to a digital movie service like Netflix or Amazon Prime Streaming.

Author Sarah Copeland (who wrote this book as a newlywed herself) has designed a collection of recipes that are specifically designed for couples to share in the kitchen. What better way to start a life together than to start a life cooking together!

Restaurant Gift Cards

For many newlyweds, the wedding bells will be followed by not too long after by a baby carriage. Before that happens, help them take advantage of their freedom: give them a gift certificate to your favorite restaurant.

Slow Cooker

Your favorite couple will love coming home to the wonderful smells of a simmering pot roast when you get them a slow cooker. We recommend finding a model with a removable, dishwasher-safe insert that will make cleanup much easier.
