Today’s blog post will follow that same theme, but with suggestions of what an Italian food lover on your list might enjoy! Many of the items we recommend are available as great deals on Black Friday, so get ready to shop.
For Everyone on Your List:
Sipipa Gift Card — Of course, this is our top pick! A Sipipa gift card is a great present for anyone, during any time of year, but it’s especially great at Christmas. It’s a perfect treat for your child’s teacher, your co-worker, your hard-to-buy-for sibling or even your parents, who love delicious pizza and pasta.
For the Foodie:
Herb Slicer or Herb Chopper — Perfectly season every meal at home with a tiny kitchen gadget that helps you effortlessly slice or grind your favorite herbs.
Microplane Grater — This is the ideal tool for grating hard cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano or zesting citrus for your favorite recipes.
For the Wino:
Wine Bottle Glass — Turn any bottle of wine into a glass of wine! Normally, it’s frowned upon to drink straight from the bottle, but this glass, which fits an entire 750 mL bottle, solves that problem.
Spill-Proof Wine Glasses — These stemless glasses are perfect for the clumsy wine-drinker. They rotate or spin, rather than tip over, when knocked into.
For the Coworker Who Eats Leftovers:
Fun Lunch Bags — Bring your Sipipa leftovers to work in style. There are always a lot of lunch bags on sale during Black Friday sale, including soft-sided neoprene totes that fold flat for storage and can be cleaned in the washing machine.
Personalized Food Storage Containers — In the south, we monogram everything, and that includes containers for food. Ensure your containers never get stolen by personalizing them.
