Starting with the essentials, kitchenware. You can get the pair a cute tea set to pull out for their fancy guests. Everything tea related and more can be purchased from stores like Tulipe which has branches all over Cairo. They would also appreciate having a new set of kitchen cutlery knives in their kitchen. They can be purchased anywhere from Ikea to Elshawwa giving you a selection of styles at various prizes to select from.

Nothing Says I Love You More Than Cookbooks

Now that your friend has the kitchenware, it’s a goal that she uses them so why don’t you get the couple a cooking book? What’s screams romance more than learning how to cook together? The pair can travel the world through eclectic recipes and dishes a lot with a tie of an apron and a flip of a page. Some cookbooks that are great to get them started are Nehal Leheta’s Authentic Egyptian Cooking: From The Table of Abou El Sid if they want to start off with trying to cook local dishes. You can purchase one at the local bookstores such as Diwan. But for a trip to Lebanon, opt for Rose Water and Orange Blossoms: Fresh & Classic Recipes from my Lebanese Kitchen by Maureen Abood which you can get through Amazon and a Kindle, online version is also available.
