Authentic Souvenirs from Italy
Enjoying every moment and creating memories are the most important things when traveling, but shopping around for local specialties can be quite fun too. When looking for souvenirs from Italy, don’t stick to the average ones: key chains and refrigerator magnets. Instead, buy something that’s more Italian with you, something that will really bring back the nice memories. Here are our suggestions!
Wine, Dry Pasta and Olive Oil
If you are a foodie, a trip to Italy is probably the best choice you can make. Each region offers different styles of wine, cuisine and produce. However, whenever you go, pasta, wine and olive oil will be amazing. In case you decide to take a bottle of wine or olive oil home, wrap it up in a padded bottle bag to protect it from breaking.
Dry pasta from a local grocery store in Italy would taste significantly better than the one you can buy back home. A sip of Italian wine, a taste of pasta and smooth, silky olive oil will easily transport you back to your incredible trip. You can share them with your loved ones too.
Leather and Shoes
Italy is world-wide known for its leather. Leather products, such as shoes, boots, jackets, handbags and wallets are of high quality and last a long time. When it comes to Italian shoes, they are comfortable, fashionable and of the highest quality. There’s no reason, thus, not to buy yourself a pair (or two).
Porcelain and Glass
Porcelain ceramics can be seen at almost any shop and market in Italy. It doesn’t have to be something large (and too fragile), but a porcelain bottle stopper or a beautiful mug. If you, however, prefer jewelry, you’ll certainly fall in love with handmade Murano glass earrings and bracelets.
Postcards, Bookmarks and Flags
Postcards and bookmarks are ideal mementos for those who like to travel light. You can, of course, send postcards to family and friends, but you can also keep them for yourself. Italian flags are also authentic and beautiful souvenirs you could consider bringing home.
Hope you’ll have a memorable time in la bella Italia!
