Italy has a long history of wine production and is the largest producer of wine around the world. Italian wine is also extremely popular, making it a great choice for gifts. Italian wine gift baskets often focus on Italy as a theme. This means that they’ll often include various related products, like pasta.
Check out the baskets on this list to find some fantastic gifts for friends and family members.
With 25 to choose from, it's not easy to pick a favorite. Though there are a couple of cool “themed” boxes like Italian picnic, or Italian Christmas gifts below, my favorite box is the Taste of the Old Country gift basket because it gets you a good sample of everything.
You've got wine, of course, but also cheese, charcuterie, spreads, bread, sweet snacks (dark chocolate, biscotti), savory snacks (sun-dried tomatoes bruschetta, mini toasts), and more.
Plus, to be honest, it's just got a really cool name. Who doesn't want a taste of the old country?
And if a one-time gift isn't enough, you could also consider a wine subscription boxe are pretty popular right now. Style, price, and extras vary, and there's something for everyone! They will send you a delicious wine every month, and some even contain wine AND cheese!

Italian Wine Gift Baskets
The Dream Italian Gift Basket
Isn’t this Dream Italian Gift Basket amazing? It contains a considerable selection of items from Italy, including pasta sauce, olives, balsamic vinegar, pasta and much more. There is also a cutting board in shaped like a bunch of grapes, which opens to reveal a cheese knife, bottle opener and wine stopper. The included wine is Mezzomondo Negroamaro Salento, which is an Italian red wine. You could also add on another bottle of wine if you wanted to.
Vino Italiano Red Wine Box
This Vino Italiano Red Wine Box is on the other end of the scale. It contains relatively few items, which also means that the cost is low. The choice of snacks is especially interesting. Most of these are Italian and hard to find in the United States. This aspect elevates the box to an entirely new level.
Tavernello Vino Rosso Italian: Wine Gift Basket
Like other baskets on this list, this Tavernello Vino Rosso Italian Basket features a bottle of Italian wine. It also contains various other related snacks and items, like cheese, crackers and pretzels. The featured wine is especially popular in Italy, making it a sure-fire hit.
Buona Vita Italian Vino & Antipasto Gift Box
This Buona Vita Italian Vino & Antipasto Gift Box is well-balanced. It doesn’t contain a large number of items, but the included pieces are all carefully chosen. This creates a gift that looks extravagant and is still relatively inexpensive. You can’t go wrong with that outcome when you’re buying a gift.
Bella Italia Vino Wine Gift Basket
Color themes are always a good way to make gifts look impressive. That’s certainly true with this Bella Italia Vino Gift Basket. The gold and black theme makes the whole thing seem much more elegant. The included ribbon can also be imprinted with your message making it extra special as well. If all that wasn’t enough, there are 4 full-sized bottles of wine included in the basket.
Italian Wine Collection
The first interesting aspect of this Italian Wine Collection is the basket. This is a little bit different than what most other gifts offer, helping it to stand out. The inclusion of 3 bottles of wine and a generous range of snacks is appealing too. After all, you don’t want to be giving a meager gift.
This Italian Feast makes some unusual (and fun) choices. For starters, the whole thing is in a colander. That’s fitting really, as other components include pasta, pasta sauce and cheese. Even the wine looks a little unusual. This could be an ideal gift for people who love to cook. It would also work for anyone a little bored of conventional gift baskets.
Italian Duet: Gourmet Wine Gift Basket
This Italian Duet Basket is another option to consider. It’s perfect for red wine lovers, coming with a bottle of Tavernello Vino Rosso Red Wine and a bottle of Tavernello Sangiovese Red Wine. As always, the basket is filled out with a variety of other snacks, like truffles, cookies, pretzels and candy.
Tavernello Italian Pinot Grigio: Wine Gift Basket
Any gift that catches your eye is worth considering. That’s precisely what this Tavernello Italian Pinot Grigio basket manages to do. While the gift contains some of the typical snacks that you see in similar baskets, there are some more unusual items too. The artichoke dip is a particularly interesting choice.
Chianti Wine – Italian Gift Basket
Options like this Chianti Wine Gift Basket are always a good choice. Rather than offering snacks like pretzels and chocolates, the basket focuses on Italian-themed products, including pasta, pasta sauce and sun-dried tomato bruschetta. Then there’s the Chianti wine, which rounds off the whole selection perfectly.
Taste of Tuscany Italian Wine Gift Basket
This Taste of Tuscany Italian Wine Basket features 2 bottles of red wine. The included snacks have an Italian theme as well. They’ve also been carefully chosen to pair well with the flavors of the wine. It’s easy to see how well a gift like this would be received.
An Evening In Rome
If you’re bored with the conventional gift basket snacks, what about something like this An Evening in Rome gift? It still contains some snacks, like chocolate and biscotti, while also offering Italian pasta, pasta sauce, a colander and a cheese grater.
Taste Of The Old Country Italian Wines & Antipasto
Why settle for a simple gift basket, when you can choose something like this Taste of the Old Country Gift? It is a 2-tier gift box and each box contains its own selection of wine and treats. To make things even better, all of the items are unusual in the United States. So, you’re not just getting Italian wine. You’re also getting a mix of other sweet and savory snacks.
An Italian Dinner
Calling this basket An Italian Dinner sums up the focus nicely. Don’t expect the usual mix of snacks in here. Instead, the gift provides everything that is needed to cook an Italian meal. Don’t worry if you’re a picky eater, there are multiple possible meals that can be made with the included items. The gift does include some snacks too – Italian chocolate sardines and chocolate roll cookies.
A Little Bit Of Italy
I love the way this A Little Bit of Italy Gift looks similar to many other gift baskets, while still being completely different. The wine of choice is Monsanto Chianti. The other parts of the basket are Italian too. They’ve been chosen so that they pair perfectly with the wine.
Wine & Cheese Italian Gift Basket
The visual style of this Wine & Cheese Italian Basket is a breath of fresh air. Unlike most other baskets, this one isn’t packed with many different packages of food. The main focus is the wine, the fresh fruit and the cheese. Hard Italian candies and a box of Italian pretzels finish off the collection nicely.
Antinori Family Tree
This Antinori Family Tree basket is impressive when it comes to wine. It includes 3 individual bottles, along with the typical selection of snacks. There are some typical snacks (like crackers) and some less common examples (like olive spread). The company also mentions that the wine and snacks may vary based on availability.
This box has a fun combination of snacks to offer.
While there are many Italian baskets out there, this Masi Amaroni is an interesting example. It includes some unusual items, such as bread sticks, cheese swirl crackers and cheese spread. The combination would be ideal for anyone who wants to try something new.
A Perfect Italian Picnic
Calling this A Perfect Italian Picnic really does make sense. The gift basket includes everything that you would need to have a true Italian picnic, right down to the basket, utensils and plates. There is plenty of Italian food to go around and 2 bottles of wine to wash it all down.
An Italian Classic
Here’s another food-based basket. The selection of items is tailored towards cooking and eating a meal at home. The included wines would perfectly complement that meal. There is even an appealing basket that could be reused in the future.
Taste Of Italy Gift Basket
The selection in this Taste of Italy Gift Basket is fairly similar to regular gift baskets. You may even recognize some of the brands, like Carr’s Crackers. Even so, most of the items are Italian-themed, such as imported pate and truffles.
You mightn’t expect a gift basket called Vegan Glory to focus on Italian food, but this one does. The featured wines are Chianti Classico and Querciabella Mongrana Maremma, which are both famous Italian wines. The crate also features various gourmet foods, like grapes, crackers, popcorn and chocolate. As an added bonus, the entire gift comes in a chest that you can reuse.
Italian Christmas Gourmet Gift Basket
This Italian Christmas Gourmet Gift Basket would make such a great present. It comes from the site Wine Italiano, so you know that all of the items are going to have links back to Italy. I love the way the basket doesn’t focus on familiar foods. It even includes items like Gianduia e Nocciolo, which is a type of chocolate and hazelnut bar.
Italian Wine & Cheese Pairing Gift Basket
You could choose this Italian Wine & Cheese Pairing Gift Basket for anyone passionate about wine and cheese. As the image shows, there are 3 different kinds of cheese featured, along with a small selection of other snacks. Even the cheese is imported, so this is a truly authentic basket.
Triple Taste of Italy Wine & Gourmet Box
This Triple Taste of Italy Wine & Gourmet Box is an interesting choice. It features 3 different wines, along with many delicacies. Most of the included items are sweet, making this a good gift for anyone with a sweet tooth.
There’s also an odd thing to mention. The basket might look familiar, as we did feature a 2-tier box earlier. Both products come from the same company. The box on the right-hand side of the image is actually the same in both cases, while the left-hand one changes.
