If you are looking for quality gifts to give this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with the craftsmanship of Italy. I’ve created this Italian-inspired gift guide for early-bird shoppers so that you can find unique gifts for your family and friends. Sometimes we need gifts well before Christmas. This gift guide will get you started before the rush of Black Friday onwards.

These gifts range in price and size. They are great for hostess gifts, teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, or even a gift for yourself. You do treat yourself at this time of year, don’t you? I know I do.

I’ll be creating more gift guides in the coming weeks. But I designed this gift guide for early bird shoppers specifically.

Italian-inspired gifts

1. Tocca Giulietta Candle, 10 oz.
Tocca candles and fragrances are inspired by Italy. This candle is scented with the feminine and delicate fragrance of sweet green apple and pink tulips of Corsica. It is named after the beloved wife of Federico Fellini, the maestro of La Dolce Vita. This scented candle has a burn time of approximately 60 hours. It comes in a pretty fluted clear glass container that can be reused to hold trinkets, jewelry, or as a votive holder.

2. Writing Journal Handmade in Italy
This beautiful hardcover journal has ivory pages that do not allow ink to bleed through. Its compact 5″x 8.3″ size is perfect for carrying in your purse or when traveling. It has 224 lined pages to record all of your hopes and dreams.

3. Salvatore Ferragamo Silk Shawl Scarf
The predominant color of this scarf is a summery coral adorned with pretty flowers that will brighten up any winter sweater. It is an oblong shape measuring 61 inches in length and 16 inches in width. This long shape makes it easy to wear. Simply wind it around your neck or wrap it around your shoulders. It is 100% silk and made in Italy.

4. Bormioli Rocco Red Wine Glasses, Set of 4
I buy these elegant wine glasses on repeat. I use them myself, and they are my favorite housewarming gift. These are restaurant quality, shatter-resistant glasses. The wide bowl shape is perfect for swirling to maximize the aroma and flavor of red wine.

5. Nars Sheer Lipstick in Damage
This creamy moisturizing lipstick is formulated with moringa and passion fruit seed oils. The color is a sheer muted grape that is perfect for autumn and winter. The formula is sheer like a balm but with a buildable color. This color is universally flattering and easy to wear.
