The holidays call for something sweet. For me, there’s no better way to indulge than delicious, hand-crafted chocolate – even better if it’s by one of my favourite chocolate makers, Angiolini Cioccolato. This moreish bar was created especially for Hotel Il Pellicano together with our Chef Michelino Gioia, so it’s extra special. Worth all the calories!
You can never go wrong with a beanie as a present. It’s sweet, practical, and super cosy – especially if you choose something as snug as our ISSIMO Cashmere Beanie Hat. Ideal to brace even the coldest winter days, it’ll keep your loved ones toasty and cool-looking. Win win!
Who doesn’t love pyjamas for the holidays? Plush, ChicISSIMO and timeless, this ISSIMO x Schostal nightshirt is set to be a real pleaser under the Christmas tree. I am gifting it, but I am also getting a new one for myself.
Sunnies aren’t just for summer: They’re great accessories to don all-year round. For something with a little character, I’m gifting these ISSIMO x L.G.R ones to the style-savvy people in my life. Inspired by iconic designer Gae Aulenti, they’re sassy, elegant, and great at protecting your eyes from the sun. A pretty perfect present, right?
For the Italophiles in your crew, look no further than our ISSIMO x Byredo Candle. It smells like Italy – tomatoes, basil, hints of pepper – looks molto sleek, and feels incredibly lush. What else do you need?
The ultimate gift set to give ahead of the holidays, our ISSIMO Decoration Box features all the trimmings needed to make an ItalianISSIMO Christmas tree: Seven decorative glass baubles featuring the Colosseum, panettone, mandarin, moka pot, a vespa, a Fiat 500 and the fiery peperoncino to ward off misfortune. Every piece is custom-designed and handblown, not to mention a homage to our beautiful country. I adore them!
We recently added these to our homeware selection, and I already know everyone I know is going to love them. Bold, fun and hand-made, they blend craftsmanship with panache. I’m giving a few sets to a few of my design-obsessed friends.
