Couple's Gifts


Lauren Kodiak + Andrew Sottile


26 and 28

Where do you live? 



English Professor (Andrew) and Copy Editor / Writer / Social Media Manager (Lauren)

[L&V: Check out Lauren's work here. We're particularly smitten with her food photography! Stay tuned for a collaboration between Lauren & L&V!]

Which Love & Victory product do you have? What do you like about it? 

We have the Ours Decanter Set and love its classic look and feel! The etched "His, Hers, and Ours" is such a fun touch.

What do you store in your decanter? Who gets to choose what goes in the decanter? 

Right now, we're storing some Bulleit Rye Whiskey in the decanter. Andrew chose the whiskey, but come summer, Lauren plans to fill it with gin to make plenty of gin and tonics.

What’s your most treasured possession? 

Does a cat count? We are obsessed with Penny, our asthmatic (and sometimes hostile but mostly lovable) cat.

How did you meet? 

At a party in college! Drew remembers that Lauren was wearing a white sweater, drinking pink wine from the bottle, and Lauren remembers that Drew looked like her celebrity crush (Zach Galifianakis). They hit it off immediately.

How will you be spending Valentine’s Day? 

Dinner at home, with plenty of wine and chocolate! 

What's your favorite way to spend Saturday morning? 

No alarm, French press coffee, pancakes or scrambled eggs, pajamas, and a good book!

Coffee or tea? 

Both. We rely on coffee to function in the morning, but drink mint tea with honey every night after dinner! (Does that last part make us sound elderly? Because we are.)
