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.

From Italy… with love

If love is in the air, these are perfect Italian gifts ideas.

ALESSI “TO” MUG
How about a heart-shaped mug in fine bone china to start the day with love?

ALESSI BIG LOVE ICE CREAM SPOONS
Aren’t they lovely? With this design spoons, ice cream will taste even better.

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.

ALESSI LA CUPOLA
Another classic of the best Italian design, to serve coffee with a special touch.

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