Love … romance … sensuality … Italy has it all. This year, let your inner Italian show through with a one-of-a-kind gift that’s flavored with the fragrance of the Bel Paese.
Here are five creative Italian-themed gift ideas for less than $50 each. And if any of you see my husband, send him the link. Sometimes even the best Italians need a little nudge.
Bella Cucina Canvas – $24.95
For practical Italophiles who like to cook up a little more than love and romance in their steamy kitchens, this personalized Bella Cucina canvas just might be the missing ingredient.
Gondolomio Italian Singing Dog – $29.99
Nothing says ti amo like the Gondolomio singing dog. He guides a gondola, he moves, he shakes, he sings … Remind your Valentine of those romantic Venetian nights with a gift that is guaranteed to set the mood and leave you smiling long after your Valentine’s celebration has ended.
Murano Glass-Beaded Necklace – $34.99
Nothing is more Italian than Murano glass, handmade in one of Italy’s most romantic cities. This Valentine’s Day, give your sweetheart a piece of Italy she can hold close to her heart all year long.
Banfi Col di Sasso Toscana Gift Basket – $46.99
There is no need to go out this Valentine’s Day when you can have a taste of Tuscany delivered to your doorstep. Uncork the wine and let the night unfold as you and your Valentine enjoy Italian pasta, cheese and chocolates from Europe’s most romantic country.
These three little words are sure to melt the heart of your Valentine – Made in Italy. Slip a handwritten note scripted in the language of love inside the box … diamonds and other gems, optional.
I kept all of these gift ideas $50 and less because, although my husband and I do celebrate Valentine’s Day, we like to keep things simple. What about you? Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? And if so, how?
