Spring 2017 Gift Guide

Julie Jurden

Spring has arrived once again and with it all the joys of the season. From the blooming daffodils, to the longer, warmer days, the glory of spring is here and with it, celebrations galore! From Mother's Day to bridal showers, hostess and teacher gifts, Modigliani's handmade Italian ceramics are the perfect gift with an Italian flair.

Pop Nero VaseFlowers are the hallmark of the season and make ideal gifts for Mother's Day or a hostess gift for Easter brunch. Grab a pre-made floral bunch from your local florist, or pick some of the springtime blooms popping up in your own yard. Use our POP Nero Small Twisted Vase to present your gift.



Pop Circle and Primavera Mugs

From the bright and lively POP Circle mug to the springtime favorite, Primavera, Modigliani has mugs as varied as the Italian landscape. Fill with candy or school supplies for a teacher or start off the couple-to-be's coffee collection.


Who doesn't need a beautiful place to store away paper clips, buttons, or even earrings. Our small handmade ceramic boxes are a delightful way to organize small items and look gorgeous on a vanity, desk, or bathroom countertop. If your recipient’s style is bold, they’ll love  POP Lines Bowl. If they lean towards softer colors, our Amore Small Heart or Primavera Round Box are the perfect fit. We love this gift for teachers or a mom that loves to organize!

Intrecci and Primavera Pots

For the mom, sister, or hostess that has a green thumb, Modigliani features a variety of handmade ceramic planters in sizes, large and small. Ideal for a small herb collection or petite flowering plant, our Primavera Small Flower Pot is ideal for the season. The Large Yellow Cachepot from our Intrecci collection works well for larger plants. 

Italian glassware and decanter

Visiting a couple that loves to entertain, or attending a spring wedding? For the happy couple, we recommend our Selezione collection decanter and glasses. This glassware is stately, solid, sleek and hand blown in the Tuscan tradition. With perfect lines and a beautiful feel in the hand, this glassware is sure to become an entertaining tradition.

espresso cup and saucerLooking for a way to celebrate spring with the little ones? How about an outdoor tea party? Our
Buongiorno! Espresso Cup and Saucer set works wonderfully as a tea cup and saucer for their little hands.  

Hostess SetHandmade and painted in Italy, our hostess sets make a gorgeous display for antipasto, appetizers, or nuts. Ideal for dining alfresco at a backyard picnic, our Capri Hostess Set features room for seven offerings and adds a Mediterranean feel, even when you cannot visit the sea.






Finally, gift yourself a beautiful tablescape as you entertain this spring. We are debuting two new Mix & Match collections just in time for your Easter celebration. Spring Sunshine and Springtime Sky Mix and Match add the colors and motifs of the season, from florals to plaids. Start your table design with our Biancheria Yellow and White Check Placemat and Napkin or Green and White Check Placemat and Napkin. A refreshing change from the mass produced pace of today a world, our table linens are hand picked to match our collections and provide a combination of textures and fabrics that reflect the quality of our designs and the skilled workmanship that is our signature characteristic.

Happy spring from everyone here at Modigliani. Enjoy all the season has to offer and experience la grande vita!
