Gifts for Italian neighbours?
Does anyone have any suggestions for small gifts from England that might be welcomed by our new Italian neighbours? We are trying to improve our Italian and want to be friendly with these new condominium neighbours who have been very welcoming. We are preparing photo albums of our family, and home, recent holidays, weddings etc, as conversation topics, but want to have something to hand over in return for the local produce that has been given to us. I have thought about shortbread, biscuits, whisky, tea, but these seem a bit boring. I will invite them for English afternoon tea, make scones, etc. but this probably won't go down well with the "digestivo" and Italian meal times. Any ideas?
