Christmas Gifts With an Italian Touch

I love giving presents – spontaneously buying a little something that I see and makes me think of a person dear to me – but Christmas often makes me feel in distress. We all have plenty of stuff and often end up buying one more useless thing or adding up to the already long list of ordinary presents.

As an Italian, and knowing how all over the world people usually like everything made in Italy, I gathered a few ideas for Christmas

Presents with an Italian touch.

Time for Italian coffee!

The one thing I really miss when I travel is Italian coffee: dark and short.

If you’re not used to it, you might find it too strong, but you’ll certainly make your Italian friends happy and you can always use your Italian coffee when you prepare Tiramisu.

BIALETTI MOKA
The typical coffee maker you find in every Italian house.

ILLY COFFEE
A LITTLE MORE EXPENSIVE, BUT ONE OF THE BEST QUALITIES

Typical Italian Christmas sweets!

Give an Italian touch to your Christmas with the typical Panettone and Nougat. You can hardly get more Italian than that.

PANETTONE
Made by the famous Cipriani of Venice, it’s a real treat.

VENCHI NOUGAT

Italian pasta is always a good idea! 

The secret of a good pasta is the quality of the ingredients. They cost a little more, but the difference is huge,

RIGATONI DE CECCO
A very good pasta brand, and one of my favorite shapes because rigatoni get wrapped by the sauce very well.

MUTTI CHOPPED TOMATOES
Forget the ready-made sauces. There’s nothing better than excellent chopped tomatoes, seasoned with fresh ingredients.
