Gift Guide 2019: Mr. Robinson was Right

December 9, 2019

Have you ever walked into a store, liked everything so much you couldn’t decide what you wanted and ended up buying nothing? That was my experience at a store in Florence, Mario Lucca Giusti that sells “crystal” made of plastic: glasses, vases and pitchers that look exactly like elegant glass.

They also have a line of the most beautiful plastic plates and platters I’ve ever seen. You’d never know they’re not ceramic.

I loved it all.

Turns out you can find many of their products – at slightly higher prices – in the United States. Two good sources are here, and here.

If you know someone clumsy (me, for instance), who’s constantly breaking things, just about everything Giusti makes would be a wonderful gift.
