Ayesha Curry has a lot to look forward to this Valentine’s Day. The cookbook author and lifestyle pro is, of course, spending some quality time with her husband Golden State Warriors MVP Stephen Curry. But this year, it seems that Steph is really stepping up his V-Day game.

“My cookbook came out in September, so he’s actually going to cook dinner for me—four courses—from the book,” Ayesha told us when she stopped by our N.Y.C. offices last week to chat about her partnership with Glad’s Glad To Give Program. “We’ll see how it goes! Stephen only cooks once in a blue moon, but as long as the love is there, that’s all that really matters to me.”

For the NBA power couple, setting aside a few hours for a romantic dinner is easier said than done, especially with Stephen’s game schedule, Ayesha’s Food Network show, Ayesha’s Homemade, and their busy life at home with daughters Riley, 4, and Ryan, 1.

Though they’ve been married since 2011, Curry says that this will be the first Valentine’s Day that the two will be away from the basketball court. “The tables have sort of turned this year because I have a taping for my show and he will be with me during the day,” she says. “That’s going to make it even more memorable.”

When it comes to gifts, the duo keep it relatively low-key. Instead of diamonds or chocolates, Curry says that she’d love to get something simple and heartfelt like a hand-written note. And for her husband? She also tries to get creative.

“He’s the most difficult person to buy for. Most men are sneakerheads, but he has his own sneakers so I’m SOL. And then they have their own team luggage, so I can’t get him a travel bag. So usually I resort to [making him] some sort of sexy coupon book,” she says. “I’m telling you, the handmade stuff goes a long way.”
