Adopt an Olive Tree

Searching for the perfect wedding (or thank you) gift? Try something unique from Nudo Italia. Adopt an olive tree!

I came across this site and have absolutely fallen in love. The Nudo olive grove has many different areas, and you can browse them all (see pictures and learn about the trees) before you choose which tree you want to adopt.

After you adopt a tree (for about 65 GBP - $130USD depending on the exchange rate), you receive an official adoption certificate. Make sure to order well enough in advance so you can present your gift with the official certificate. In the spring, those on the receiving end will get the produce from your tree (they guarantee 1.5 litres, but you get what your tree produces). They come shipped in beautiful tins that look so cute in the kitchen. The autumn package contains flavored oil from your tree - including lemon and chili (you receive three flavors). Bonus: are your recipients heading to Italy for their honeymoon - you can even visit your tree at the Nudo grove.

Visit Nudo for more information! But hurry, before everyone catches on to this idea.
