44th Anniversary Wedding Gift Ideas for the Couple
TruffleHunter Truffle Oil Selection Gift Set
Did you know that truffles can spice up your night? According to Stanford scientists, “In order to attract animals to them, truffles release chemical scents similar to pheromones produced by mammals. One of these chemicals, androstenone, is the main sex hormone produced by boars and can be found in their saliva. For this reason, truffle hunters often use female pigs to track down the elusive mushrooms. Androstenone can also be found in human sweat, leading some people to consider truffles to be aphrodisiacs.”
Thus, for the couple who is cute as a button and want to enjoy a real culinary treat, gift them with the TruffleHunter Truffle Oil Selection Gift Set! This three-piece set has black, white, and English truffle oils that are perfect for pizza, pasta, popcorn, fries, or any other delicious treat that they see fit!

These hot sauces are a blend of the elite black truffle oils mentioned above, along with ripe red chili peppers and organic agave nectar. Needless to say, this savory sauce is guaranteed to make things hotter.
In fact, research shows that compounds found in these peppers, called capsaicinoids, actually “trick the brain into thinking it is being burned”. This leads your brain to release both endorphins and dopamine.
“Endorphins are the body’s natural way of relieving pain by blocking the nerve’s ability to transmit pain signals. Additionally…dopamine [is] responsible for a sense of reward and pleasure, is also released. In essence, for some people eating large amounts of spicy food triggers a sense of euphoria similar to a ‘runner’s high’.”
Hot sauce pairs perfectly with chicken wings, fries, or even macaroni and cheese! Moreover, this fiery condiment is gluten-free and vegan.
Golden State Fruit Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Does anything scream romance more than chocolate-covered strawberries?
