Italian Food Gifts

You could also create your own hamper with delicious Italian food goods available in your town. Look for biscotti, traditional panettone, olive oil and balsamic vinegar plus beautifully packaged Amarena cherries. We just love the jars they come in which can be repurposed as decorative items once the cherries have been gobbled up.

Italian Gifts for Her

Italians are well known for their classic style and beautiful fabrics. Choose a gorgeous Italian silk scarf or cute Italian themed charm to remind her of Italy. Italian made soaps are another indulgent gift that will be well received. 

Italian Gifts for Him

Whether he likes football or is a snappy dresser, there's an Italian gift idea to suit. We love the Acqua Di Parma fragrance - it's an instant way to transport you to Italy. Just add silk tie and he'll be as well turned out as any well-heeled Italian.
