An Erin Cooks Giveaway: The Eat Boutique Be My Sweet Valentine Gift Box

in Contests / Giveaways


The Eat Boutique team has outdone themselves once again with the creation of yet another gorgeous holiday themed gift box full of handmade edibles. Road mapped boxes of chocolates and red roses may be all well and good but they’ve been done to death. Perhaps this year you’d like to treat the Geoffrey to your Ina, the Ellen to your Portia, or the NPH to your David to a more unique token of your love and adoration? With that goal in mind, how do you think the significant other in your life would feel about indulging in the following glorious goodies?

All of the above sounds like an opportune chance to score some major relationship bonus points to me. But what’s even better than mad props? You have the opportunity to win this unique gift box for free!

To enter the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this post letting me know who you feel is the most romantic fictional (literary or film) couple. Personally I still go gaga over Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe. Gilbert Blythe as portrayed by the 20-something version of Jonathan Crombie though (of course).

In addition, If you share the link to this contest on your own blog, Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ account you may have one additional entry for a total of two possible chances to win. If you choose this option please leave a link to your shout out as your second comment. A winner will be selected via the nifty random number generator on Wednesday, February 8th at 5:00 PM PST and then I’ll promptly arrange to have the giftbox shipped to your home. Please note that this box can only be shipped to U.S. residents. Best of luck!

So many, but in honor of your blog I choose Julia and Paul Child from “My Life In France.” (And yes, Meryl and Stanley did them justice in “Julie and Julia” too.)

The Germans wore grey. She wore blue. I will always have a soft spot for Rick and Ilsa (and Humphrey and Ingrid, for that matter). Here’s looking at you, Eat Boutique.

The Colin Firth storyline in “Love Actually.” I sob through the end of their story every damn time.

Castle and Beckett. I know I should go with someone more classic, but I’m just loving that show right now.

I SO agree with Molly, who previously commented about Colin Firth’s story in Love Actually. That’s my favorite movie of all time! But for originality, I’ll also add Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts from The O.C. It may seem nerdy, but I miss that show!

There’s something about Rick and Ilse from Casablanca that is just timelessly romantic, isn’t there? Swoon….

17 Yael February 7, 2012 at 12:19 am

Great giveaway! I think the most romantic couple is Francesca Johnson (Meryl Streep) and Robert Kincaid (Clint Eastwood) in The Bridges Of Madison County.

Oh wow. Will someone please tell my husband that he needs to get this for me??? Speaking of fiction… 🙂 Most romantic fictional couple? I’ll go with Lancelot and Guinevere…but only because someone already said Rick and Ilse.

I too love Anne & Gilbert. He was so constant throughout all those years.

26 Janet February 7, 2012 at 10:34 am

I know that Severus Snape and Lily from the Harry Potter series aren’t technically a couple…and the romance was rather one sided, but the love was strong and saved him from a life of evil.

Jim and Pam from the office will always be one of my faves!

Nickie & Terry (e.g. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr) in “An Affair to Remember”. Sigh.

I’ve always been captivated by unrequited love so Gatsby and Daisy would have to be my pick.

YES YES GILBERT AND ANNE. You are legitimately the first person who has acknowledged their epic-ness in my experience, and I am THRILLED. Forever favorites.

31 Hannah February 7, 2012 at 3:18 pm

I know it is cliche, but I love Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Something about hate turning to love, so romantic.

Elizabeth & Darcy are fantastic, but I’ve always had a soft spot Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot in Jane Austen’s Persuasion. He’s still in love with her even after she refuses his hand the first time 30 years later. *Sigh*

What a wonderful box of goodies!
Tough one to narrow down –
1. Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy closely followed by 2. Anne Shirley & Gilbert Blythe!
College roommate introduced me to the TV version of Anne of Green Gables – spent an entire Saturday watching the series straight thru – great memory!!

Tweeted about the giveaway as well!

I’m another Elizabeth Bennet + Mr. Darcy gal! I read that book at least once a year, and watch the BBC mini-series probably as often, and still cry. It’s my favorite of all time!
