Domori Chocolate Tasting Box: "For my sweet-toothed friends in different cities because everyone loves opening a big package to find chocolate goodies inside."

Camporelli Novara Cookie Tin: "For my sons to open as a late night snack on Christmas eve. Then I usually take the reusable holiday tin they come in to gift treats of my own creation!
Rosella Roi's extra virgin olive oil shampoo, for my sustainability-conscious health & safety director who oversees all of my restaurants."
