Looking for the perfect holiday gift for the Italian food lover in your life?
Whether you're in the market for Christmas gifts or presents for another winter holiday, choosing the right one for a serious "foodie" can be a challenge, so I've compiled a list of my own favorites related to Italian food and cooking. From inexpensive food magazine subscriptions to high-end pasta machines, you should find something on my list for everyone - and for every price range.
Best of all, these are all products and services I am personally recommending from my own first-hand experience. These are food clubs I've belonged to; kitchen tools I've used; grocers whose stores I've visited personally or used via mail-order repeatedly in the past. Forget about standard gift baskets of inferior products, or another boring fruit-of-the-month club; these are gifts that will have an Italian food lover shouting out "Mangia!" and "Molto bene!"
You don't have to wait for Christmas, either - these would be great gifts for other celebrations such as birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day or even a housewarming party.
