Unwrap Something Italian at Eataly Boston

This holiday season, unwrap something Italian! From overflowing gift boxes to Milanese panettoni, our gifts are rich and sweet, timelessly delicious, and always a hit at any party.

In Italy, we have always considered good food to be the best gift, dating back to our grandparents' days of hardship when it was much less abundant. We need food to survive, and sharing it showed love. Thanks to our nonni, that tradition has held strong among Italians today. Culinary gifts offer a treat we wouldn't always buy for ourselves but will enrich daily life. Wouldn't you love to be given a hunk of Parmigiano Reggiano DOP at your next dinner party or find a bottle of wine in your stocking?

This year, spread the word with your own friends and family. Show you know better than giving the same old tie or board game, and explore our entire marketplace of gifts throughout the holidays. Wrap up something Italian, and give the gift of food to the ones you love (and that includes yourself!).

#NoRegift

Skip the socks and ties this year – why not surprise them with something they haven't had before? Overflowing with quality ingredients from Italy, each of our 35 holiday gift boxes is hand-packed with a unique, curated theme, from regions to recipes.

2. PANETTONE

#PieceOfCake

Wrapped in festive paper, this sweet and fluffy cake is a no-brainer holiday favorite. Hailing from Milano, each slice offers a taste of the high-quality flour, eggs, and dried fruit, which symbolize luck and prosperity.

3. EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

#ItsAKeeper

In Italy, it’s not uncommon to gift your loved ones a fine bottle of extra virgin olive oil. This year, take a page from our book and surprise someone with a beautiful ceramic bottle of high-quality olio, made from cold-pressed, 100% Italian olives.

4. PARMIGIANO REGGIANO DOP

#TheRealDeal

Made according to old-world Italian tradition, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP is nothing but the real deal. With each bite, savor the rich flavors and granular texture that only gets better with age. A cheesy gift? Yes, but also tasteful!

5. WINE

Because #WineNot

Need we say more? Delivered to you from centuries of tradition, a bottle of premium Italian will make every get-together a party and every party unforgettable.

6. BALSAMIC VINEGAR

#DressItUp

Versatile and flavorful, vinegar is one of Italy’s most precious condiments. Its production is deeply respected throughout Italy, especially in Modena, the birthplace of balsamic vinegar located in the heart of Emilia-Romagna. Made with grape must, a good quality balsamic vinegar is a lot like wine where a longer aging period results in deep, complex flavors. Explore the variety of high-quality balsamic vinegar in our marketplace, including bottles aged for up to 24 years!

7. TRUFFLE

#TheHuntIsOver

Still searching for the perfect gift? Hunted for only a few months out of the year in the woodlands of Piemonte, white truffles offer deep aromas and an unforgettable taste. The best part of all? The hunt is over, so all you need to do is add a dash of decadence to your holiday table with our fresh selection.

8. CHOCOLATE

#TreatYourself

Ready to celebrate? Having a bad day? Just want a pick-me-up? Rich, complex, and deeply flavorful, artisanal chocolate is perfect for any mood and every occasion.

9. COFFEE

#AlwaysFirst

Wake up to the vibrant and energizing aroma of fresh Italian caffè, because yes, even in Italy we say "but first, coffee." Each blend is made with the best sustainable coffee beans carefully sourced across the world, then roasted to perfection in Italy. 

10. ARTISANAL PASTRY

#NoRegrets

"I regret eating that artisanally-made tiramisù," said no Italian ever. Whether tiramisù or a fruit tart or even pasticcini, an artisanal Italian pastry is sure to be a hit at your next holiday gathering!
