Unwrap Something Italian at Eataly NYC Flatiron

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?

Check out 10 gift ideas below, then visit us at Eataly NYC Flatiron to find even more at our pop-up Holiday Market throughout December.
