Italian gifts made in Italy: “regali” for your family and friends who are in love with my country.
Here is an Amazon list of Italian Christmas gifts ideas.
Hello Italian lovers, or friends of Italian lovers!
It is that time of the year: the time you have a list, a budget, but not enough ideas to make the ones you love really happy. I can help with the Italic part, with a few ideas and some Italian gifts made in Italy that I’ve been putting together in the past few months.
I’ll update the list* any time I find and test something worth becoming a Christmas gift for an Italian fan. So, save the page somewhere!
*The links on this page are affiliate links, which means if you purchase one of the products, I get a little something (sometimes I reach buying a book a month!). Not enough to make me add stuff I don’t like or haven’t somehow experienced.
Italian specialty gifts
If your friends are gourmands, if they love good food just like they love life, then you’ll probably get an invitation to their place. To a tasting night, a special date to savor together one of these Italian specialties they found under the tree.

The more sophisticated your friends’ palate is, the more they’ll appreciate this gift: real, high-end, extra-virgin olive oil. A bottle they’ll trickle on bread every time their soul begs for a little solace.
Have you ever tried popcorn seasoned with (real) truffled oil? It is so good, I have no idea how to convince you about it. If your friends are so refined to love “tartufi”, truffle mushrooms, they’re worth these gifts from a northern Italy tried-in-my-kitchen brand.
italian cooking gifts
These are the basics of an Italian food lover: the coffee maker, the pestle and mortar to make pesto, and the pasta roller. If you have all three of them, you can say around you’re Italian!
make your house smell good
A candle from everywhere in Italy: Sicily’s intense flavors, Capri’s embracing aromas, and Milan’s sophisticated blends.
Two contemporary and two classic Italian authors. It’s hard to say which one is better than the others. Read the plots and chose the one you know your friend will devour in a couple of days.
These cookbooks are written by Italians or people that actually live here. The only ones worth your money and your friend’s culinary efforts. Sorry, that’s a fact.
an Italian travel gift
Sitting on a couch, sipping a tea or a hot chocolate, soft music on, and a scented candle gentling the air. That’s a way to visit and experience Italy, did you know? Give your friends an issue of Simposio, it’s QUITE like giving them an airplane ticket.
books about Rome
If your friends love Rome, they’ll bless the possibility of going back, again and again, to capture just another tiny detail, to see how light changes things, to meet more people and hear their stories.
Enjoy giving your Italian gifts from italy!
