Online Italian Experiences
While you wait for your trip to Italy, transport yourself there and build the excitement with these fun online experiences. From cooking classes to virtual tours, it's never been easier to connect with Italy from home.
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.
Italy Gift Cards
Not just a last minute gift option (but very handy for that too!) gift cards allow them to choose their own digital guides and planners from us at Untold Italy or tour experience from Take Walks or one of our favorite food tour companies Eating Europe.
