Italian-inspired Christmas Gift Ideas

Christmas is fast approaching and it’s that time of year again when we start trying to think of unique Christmas gift ideas for our loved ones.

If you’re at a loss this year as to what to buy that particularly picky person in your life, then here are a few of our favourite Italian-inspired Christmas gift ideas.


For foodies

blog_1_HeroImage.jpg (67)We love the Italian Christmas tradition of panettone, which is a sweet bread laced with candied fruits and delicate flavours that is traditionally eaten in Italy around Christmas time. It is now widely available in the UK and is usually presented in a pretty box making it a lovely gift idea for someone who loves Italian food and it also teams wonderfully with coffee. Check out your local supermarket to find one, or visit an Italian food shop to pick up an authentic panettone.

For something a little more grand, put together your own Italian food hamper – simply buy a pretty wicker hamper or gift box and fill it with Italian treasures, such as espresso coffee beans, olives, taralli, biscotti, infused olive oil, Italian herbs and perhaps a bottle of Chianti wine. If you want to go one better, how about a cooking class in Italy with a trained Italian chef?! Now that would earn you some serious Brownie points!


For a rugby fan

If you have a little extra to spend and would like to buy that rugby fan in the family a really special gift, check out our 6 Nations Rugby packages to Rome. For this coming season, we have packages to watch Italy vs Wales at Stadio Olimpico on 5th February 2017 available from just £549 per person, including return flights, airport transfers, accommodation in the city and an official match ticket.

As a part of a custom-made package, we can include a wine tour through the Chianti Hills or Val d’Orcia wine roads for something particularly special.

Alternatively, if you don’t have such a generous budget, consider buying them a personalised bottle of Italian wine, which are available from specialist suppliers online. You can even buy Pinot Grigio scented candles for someone who really likes their wine! Or how about a beautiful bottle of Italian Prosecco to celebrate Christmas with?


For movie buffs

Italy has been the setting for many famous movies, including Inferno, the Godfather Trilogy, The Talented Mr Ripley, The Tourist and many others. If you have a movie fan in the family then why not treat them to a movie-themed tour in Italy. We have many themed holidays and tours available, including:
