Share Article

Luxury Services, highly regarded and best known for creating extravagant luxury vacations in Italy is now expanding its gifting division previously reserved only for clients who had used their travel services.

Our clients would contact us after returning home from their vacation asking our help in purchasing a gift for themselves or sometimes to surprise a loved one with an exquisite object that they had admired while vacationing in Italy.

Luxury Services announces the expansion of their distinctive "Artisan gifts from Italy" gifting division. ( For those who appreciate Italian "buongusto" this may be the only source for gifts of this kind for anyone who is looking for a truly eclectic and extraordinary gift from Italy. "Extra Vecchio" supreme Balsamic Vinegar from Modena, dazzling silks reflecting the intense colors of the renaissance, handcrafted sharkskin agendas, stunning black onyx and woven 18kt gold thread pendant, lavishly soft deerskin travel bag, luxurious cashmere baby blanket -These are a few of the discoveries that Luxury Services has selected for the 2008 Holiday season. (

Business partners Sandra Cemulini and Yvonne Cardile are highly regarded in their niche market, acting as personal buyers for discerning clients who have a desire for understated luxury over designer branding. By focusing on what they know best, they have used their knowledge and personal connections to provide this unique professional service.

Ms. Cemulini saw the gifting division as a natural extension of the vacation experience: "Our clients would contact us after returning home from their vacation asking our help in purchasing a gift for themselves or sometimes to surprise a loved one with an exquisite object that they had admired while vacationing in Italy." Luxury Services has proven to be a priceless source for their clients who desire an extraordinary gift, and realize the difficulty in finding these artisans who often work on a very small scale, do not advertise, and often are not very technologically savvy. The artisans appreciate the help in finding a market as well as giving the clients insider access to the most superb and increasingly rare hand crafted gift items.

U.S. clients are intrigued by the idea that in the 21st century there are still artisans who continue a craft passed down from father to son, in many cases for several generations. A cobbler renown for his bespoke men's shoes, crafts the unique sharkskin agendas and other leather accessories, a mother and daughter create the most luxurious cashmere and silk-lined robes and baby blankets. Many would find it nearly impossible to locate a century old renaissance studio in an ancient building where the goldsmith works following the techniques of Cellini.    Luxury Services has gained exclusive access to an atelier that creates dazzling silks on antique looms from the 17th century, as well as a family "acetaia" in Modena which has given Luxury Services stock of the limited quantity of their superb 20+ and 30+ years aged Balsamic Vinegar. A brilliant leather maker has created a travel bag which the partners found to be not only exquisitely elegant, but is made of one of the softest and most resilient leathers ever made.

Ms. Cardile who manages the Italy offices says: "The key to our success is that we are personally involved with all aspects of our business allowing us to develop trustworthy relationships with our clients as well as with the artisans. It is gratifying for all involved, the passionate artisan is satisfied in knowing his product is understood, and the client has the peace of mind knowing that they can rely on our meticulous attention to detail."

This select gifting service is prized by busy professionals and executives. A telephone call or email and it will be as if the client had personally gone to Italy to shop for the holidays. Luxury Services makes the purchase completely hassle-free, taking care of all steps, from the initial consultation, order, elegant gift wrapping, and delivery to the clients' destination.
