Beautiful Italian Products for Your Holidays

Enter Gioia Company and spend a little time in Italy with us. Tired of the parking and congestion of the shopping mall? We invite you to reminisce about the European Christmas Markets with us at Gioia. Join us anytime by appointment and attend our Christmas party on Dec 20 from noon to six p.m. Enjoy Italian hospitality, wonderful antipasti and lunch while you take in all the beauty of the hand made arts of Italia. We pride ourselves in offering you quality, joy, and affordability in excellence.

glass ornamentsWe are just returning from a wonderful trip through Italy visiting our family and friends and purchasing items that you, our clients, have asked us for.

Our first stop was Venezia, elegant, classical, historical and memorable. The laces and glassware produced in Venice for centuries have brought many a visitor to these islands. Lace making dates back in Venice to the 1500s and has been sought after by people throughout the world. Lace adds warmth to a home, a table and elegance to your person. Read more about a family of lacemakers and come to see some of their particular pieces we provide for you at Gioia Company. Treat yourself to a beautiful Italian fabric on your table for 2 or 20. Prices range from $20. Read more about the history of lacemaking on their website: Martina Vidal Burano VeniceLaces of BuranoLocally there are lacemakers that you can visit during the holidays by appointment. (The Lace Museum in Sunnyvale 408.730.4695)

While you enjoy visiting with family and friends during the holidays and New Years' celebrations serve your favorite wine and Prosecco in magnificent Italian champagne and wine glasses reminiscent of a visit to the Florian in St Mark’s Square, an evening spent in the historical Café enjoying the classical music of several competing orchestras. Italian Italian glasswareGlassware begins at $18 a stem and can go up to the finest at $85 for heirloom giving..

Adorn yourselves or give the gift of Murano Glass Jewelry, we have beautiful colors and styles Bracelets begin at Murano Glass Jewelry$25. Take a tour through a Murano Glass Factory by clicking here.

You may enjoy a coffee or two as most Americans do. You must come to see the hand painted mugs, latte cups, espresso, cream and sugar servers, etc that come from all over Italy especially Vietri sul Mare, Amalfi Coast Italy. We also entertain you with home made limoncello and the urns and serving pieces you will need or may want to give for the holidays you can find.

Biscotti plates and biscotti packageIn Vietri sul Mare we stayed at CASA IDA, an historical bed and breakfast owned and operated by artists and friends in the area (see below). The tiles, Vulcan tables, and ceramic pottery of this area takes you right to the Mediterranean vistas to add ambiance to your table. Each plate that is purchased from Gioia comes with biscotti from La Biscotteria in Redwood City. Prices begin at $60.
