The Christmas season is just around the corner and it’s not too soon to be shopping for Christmas gifts. At Italian Talks we are curious to discover what would make the best Italian Christmas gift. So we asked our fellow Italy lovers for their ideas.

We were not surprised to discover that many gift ideas center on food and wine! Here in no particular order are our friends’ selection of 10 Italian Christmas gift ideas…

Agata Mleczko from NullNFull shares a touching story. “The Italians are generous. Not only do they spend hours on shopping before Christmas but they also make an extra effort to make their gifts meaningful. I experienced it three years ago when I volunteered in Christmas selling in Ferrara. The companies hit by the earthquake in May the same year prepared Christmas gifts. Everyone who bought a parcel was sure that he not only gave a gift of high-quality local products, but also supported the local economy in this difficult moment. Prosecco, Parmigiano Reggiano, pampepato and aceto balsamico make everybody happy!” @NullNFull
