Caputo’s Gift Giving Guide

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it’s time to get into gift giving mode! Whether you have tons of people on your list or just a few, it can be hard to find that perfect gift. That’s where we can come in because what’s better than the gift of food! We have something for everyone! Here is a gift giving guide for you… Caputo’s style

Here are some ideas for all the different foodies in your life!

Dolce & Gabbana Panettone

Panettone is a staple Christmas gift. It is a sweet bread that Italians enjoy around the holidays. It is a tall, dome-like shaped sweet bread that comes in multiple flavors.  The baking process is long and involves curing the dough, then proofing the cake to give it the fluffy texture. There are then extras added into the dry mix like dried candies, raisins, or chocolate chips! This dolce and Gabbana one adds the perfect special touch to this traditional gift. Imported from Sicily, it comes in a beautiful metal tin that has the signature D&G style and has a matching bag that the recipient can keep all year round

Oil and Vinegar

Every cook can use oil and vinegar! At Caputo’s, we have more than just the basics! We have tons of oils and vinegars imported from Italy– classic and infused. You can gift a line of infused olive oils that bring delicious flavors into dishes– infused with chili, garlic, basil, lemon, truffle… so many options. We also have a wide range of vinegars. Balsamic glazes, raspberry infused, fig infused, imported balsamic, red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar, prosecco vinegar, and so many more. These are great gifts because it might not be something you pick out for yourself, but this gift could be the recipient’s new household staple!


Is there someone in your life who loves cheese? Then head to our cheese department and pick out a selection of some of our cheeses! We have cheese from all over the world and tons of different items that pair perfectly with cheese– fig spreads, infused honeys, imported nuts– everything you can think of! This is another great gift that allows someone to taste a variety of items they may not choose for themselves. Picking out a few items and putting them in a festive basket makes for a great gift.
