While we’re keen on keeping this recipe book for ourselves, it also makes a lovely personalized wedding gift.
No-Frills Recipe Book
Keep it simple with this basic recipe book. It comes in a rainbow of eight colors and includes space for every meal.

Head back to basics with our list of essential kitchen utensils, too.
