How about a cookbook? One can never have to many of those.
Or a gift certificate to a local cooking store, maybe one for a cooking class?


Or.. how about borrowing one of his cookbooks and
making him a meal from it? I'm sure he'd love that
you were trying to learn to do something that he likes
to do.

It's a little naughty, but...fishnet stockings, an apron, and a big red bow in your hair????? The perfect gift.

Or just wrap yourself in plastic wrap & tie a big red bow around your waist?

LOL, I'm sorry, mud, but when I read big red bow, and an apron all I could picture is...

I have a few ideas

I have a few ideas. I bought my friend who loves to cook an extra large cooking spatula. He loved it. He said that when he is sautéing fish, he always has a difficult time flipping the fish, and this large surfaced item lifted the fish (I guess anything else goes to like pancakes) without breaking it into many pieces. For household, seeing that he is a guy who likes a clean house I would think about getting him a Roomba vacuum (very small device that can replace the bulky version and is self-directed) – I have one and love it – or possibly an outdoor gift for a garden (maybe seeds if he doesn’t have one). If he likes to cook and clean, I am sure he likes being in the garden. New relationship can be so exciting – even gift giving is a pleasure (and a chore)!
