5 Ticinese gifts

Every year, some of us seem to find ourselves running out of time and having to find the perfect gift at the very last moment. It should also be original, sustainable and reasonably priced, look great and not be a candidate for the new year’s unwanted gift swap. Here are 5 ideas for gifts that will have the lucky recipient either looking forward to the next holiday or starting to believe once more in Father Christmas.

1. Cooking with style

The Ticino chopping board is the perfect gift to accompany Christmas dinners with regional cold cuts and cheeses. The Acqua Ticino Water jug and glasses beautifully lettered by local artist Orio Galli is, on the other hand, a special gift for everyday use.

2. Give an experience

As Christmas approaches, large towns and small villages teem with stalls, music, lights and scents. With a wide selection of zero-kilometre products, Christmas markets offer a unique experience to buy local treasures that convey the authenticity of Ticino tradition.

3. For quality lovers

Honey, olive oil and panettone, all strictly from Ticino, are indispensable Christmas gifts this year. These regional delicacies will make a splash under the tree!

4. Choosing Ticino wine tourism

A perfect gift for those who love wine, local products and the territory. Choose from the many activities offered by Ticino wine producers and purchase your wine tourism experience directly online at Swiss Wine Tour 

5. Shopping for all tastes

Is the rush for presents continuing? Don't worry. Whether you are a lover of unbridled shopping in department stores or a fan of small artisanal boutiques, you will always find the last-minute purchase you are looking for in Ticino.
