Personal Gifts from Italy

"Some gifts are big. Others are small. But the ones that come from the heart are the best gifts of all." Tinku Razoria

We have a large number of products that make ideal personal gifts for all occasions. If you are Italian, if you have an Italian relative or friend, or if you simply love all things Italian, there is nothing as special as a personal gift, Italian birthday present or Christmas gift from Italy. A gift from The Italian Shop will bring a little of the magic of Italy into the life of anyone who receives it. It is always difficult to think of an exciting and original Christmas present or Birthday gift. Our ceramic, leather, Murano glass, olive, silk or traditional desk sets, provide a wide range of possibilities to choose the perfect gift for you, your friend or loved one. Direct from Italy!

Gifts from Italy
"Ordering two Christmas gifts from The Italian Shop this past season has been one of the nicest experiences I have had for years. From the first moment I discovered the website I could see that this was something special. And when the gorgeous, hand-carved bowls arrived here in the USA, in time for Christmas (just as promised!), I was more than right! Two lovely and quite different pieces, carved especially for my order, beautifully made, beautifully finished, packed to withstand the bomb, and with thorough instructions on their care. Needless to say, the recipients are thrilled! In this era of slipshod merchandise - plastic, fiberboard, or otherwise - these beautiful bowls will live forever, just as beautiful as they are now. Polly was marvellous at keeping me informed of their progress, and handled all of the import paperwork as well. Wonderful!"
