Poketo Epicurean Recipe Cards

Personalize a gift card with an illustrated accoutrement

We're pretty obsessed with This Thing Now. Here's how to get it into your life.

I've reached that golden age: Nine weddings fill my social calendar this year.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm excited. I love tearing up the dance floor to a killer band and treating each one as a mini reunion of my best buds. But there are only so many hand mixers and dish towels I can buy off the standard wedding registry.

So I tend to give the thing everyone really wants: cash money. But to make it a tad more personal, I'll be pairing that check with Poketo's beautifully illustrated recipe cards ($16) that make use of fresh fruit and vegetables in dishes like Baked Figs with Feta and Herbs and Fingerling Potato Salad with Olive and Herb Pesto. (No weddings? No problem. It's a way to make any gift card feel more special.)

The newly betrothed will be getting that registry full of equipment in prime wedding produce season and may as well enjoy that (cooking) honeymoon to the fullest.
