Can you believe we already near the end of 2019?! We are officially into December, and the holiday craze is shortly on its way.

Trying to think of the right gift for family and friends takes a lot of time and energy, so I’ve put together an Italy inspired gift guide with unique items for everyone.

For la Famiglia

The holidays are for spending time with your loved ones, getting cozy indoors, and enjoying each other’s company. Playing board games makes the perfect activity during these chilly holiday months. Tombola is a traditional Italian board game similar to bingo and makes the ideal gift for those who enjoy entertaining. Pass on this Italian gaming tradition and make meaningful memories with this complete set from the Italian Children’s Market. Shop the Tombola game here.

For the History Buffs

For those who love learning about the history of Italian American immigration, then the newly published book Italian Neighborhoods, written by Raymond Guarini is a must-read. The book explores the five boroughs of New York City and its Italian enclaves that have maintained their culture and traditions, which have passed on for decades. Shop for the book here.

For the Jet Setters

For your friends and family who like to travel and enjoy planning trips, a calendar or planner is a great gift. Calendars are the best option to stay organized and schedule upcoming adventures. I like to use one to plan my trips to Italy because it allows me to save memories or share itineraries with others. Shop the calendars by clicking the links below.

For the Chefs

We all have an exceptional cook (or cooks) in the family. In an Italian family, this is not uncommon. What’s more official than having a custom made wooden spoon or apron for that person in your family that is obsessed with cooking?! Shop these cooking essentials by clicking the links below.

For the Dreamers

For those of us who dream about being in a piazza in Italy sipping on a cappuccino, these adorable Italy-themed pencil set and vintage style notebook is an excellent choice for your creative loved ones. Shop each item by clicking the links below.
