And why not breakfast in the company of friendly Alpacas? It’s an unforgettable experience that the person receiving the gift is unlikely to have had before!


  1. Their eyes for art, aka turn their iris into a masterpiece

If you want to give a truly special gift to someone, consider gifting them a high-resolution photo to frame. Far from the usual standard photos, try a picture combining the irises of your eyes and those of the person who will receive the gift. Some places offer the opportunity to take very high-resolution photos and turn them into real art pieces by combining the irises of two people. Iris Galerie gives you the opportunity to create these beautiful works and customise them to your liking in different galleries around the world.

  1. A ticket to a fashion exhibition

It is always nice to give a gift that is unique and different, like a ticket for an exhibition. If the person receiving the gift is an art enthusiast, they will love it for sure. Big cities like Milan, Paris, and London offer a plethora of events, shows and exhibitions, making it easy to find something that can reflect our friends’ preferences. In Milan, the Armani Silos is a must-see, especially for fashion lovers. It showcases more than 40 Giorgio Armani creations divided into three recurring themes – Androgynous, Ethnic and Stars – which continue to inspire the designer and trace his creative work over the years.
