Italian food baskets are the perfect Christmas gift for the members of your family who enjoy a love affair with Italy and Italian food
If your friends and family are anything like mine they love to eat and they love to get gifts they will actually use. I long ago gave up trying to guess what everyone wanted as a gift and started putting together baskets for friends and family. I put together baskets that I know they will enjoy and since most people enjoy all things Italian an Italian food basket makes the perfect gift.
I will include unique pastas, sauces, olive oil, breadsticks, biscotti and if they are wine drinkers a nice bottle of wine. Occasionally I will include an Italian cookbook. I try to find a nice basket or a straw carry all bag to put it all in. I either tie a big red bow on the top or wrap it in the cellophane bags you find in crafts stores that can be shrink wrapped. Living in a large city I have access to all of these things and more.
I wanted to send a gift basket to a friend who lives in outside of New York City. Putting a gift basket together to send would be difficult. Gift baskets are difficult to wrap and it is hard to fill a basket made with food items that ship well.
I found this basket of penne, organic tomato sauce, Tuscan Sangiovese and extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany. The baskets ship from A. G. Ferrari, an Italian food products company that has been in business for over 80 years and enjoys an excellent reputation. A. G. Ferrari is dedicated to finding Italy’s “artigiani,” small, artisanal
producers who are passionate about what they do and who produce high quality food items.
I have been enjoying A. G. Ferrari food items for years. Consider giving an Italian Food Basket as a Christmas gift to friends, family and co-workers. If you are lucky they will share their gift with you.
