KC Crossarrows doormat
What better gift for the homebodies than something for their doorway. This custom-made doormat from Urban Provisions, a general store that opened in August at 2616 Guinotte Ave. in the East Bottoms, has two options: the KC Crossarrows doormat, a no-brainer for local couples, and the Ombre Houses mat for duos near and far ($29 each).
Boulevard bar sign
Light up the lives of those you love with a neon Boulevard Brewing Co. beer sign. If the $149 price doesn’t fit your budget, go for the tin signs ($25), which still add a touch of local style to any home of couples who love to entertain. The signs are available at the brewery gift shop at 2501 Southwest Blvd. or the holiday pop-up shop at 412 Nichols Road on the Country Club Plaza.
The ‘Westporter’ gift basket
Stock your favorite foodie couple’s kitchen with locally made goods from Louisburg Cider Mill, Forever Herbs, Benish’s Bakery, Olde Westport Spice & Trading Co. and Pryde’s. The gift basket, $50 at Pryde’s, 115 Westport Road, also comes with salsa from BoysGrow, a local nonprofit that pays urban kids to grow and market fresh vegetables. Bonus: Don’t worry about wrapping; Pryde’s has you covered with its signature green-and-white checked box wrapped in cellophane and tied with a bow.
Cooking for couples class
Microwave meals will no longer cut it after the newlyweds take this class ($150) at Culinary Center of Kansas City, 7920 Santa Fe Drive, Overland Park. It includes 21/2 hours of detailed guidance from an expert chef. Types of couples classes range from cooking without recipes to preparing a romantic meal for two.
Tour for two at Arrowhead Stadium
They’ve been in the parking lot, and most likely in the stadium, but have they been on the sidelines? Give the passionate sports pair in your life an up-close and personal look at Arrowhead Stadium with a stadium tour.
The two can walk on the field, take a peek into the locker room and see the view from the penthouse suite. Tour prices vary; if you’re willing to splurge, go for the private tour on game day, which includes on-field access during pregame activities and a behind-the-scenes look at the production team.
