I remember those nights, when I would lie awake in bed, planning out the quirky cool gifts that I would give for Christmas. I have concluded that with limited time, rather than procrastinate, the best gift is a classic gift. One whose design will last the test of time, rather than the passing whim of a trend.
Alessi is one of those brands, great design with a historical track record.
With that in mind, I am excited to announce that Alessi is currently celebrating the festive season with an exclusive competition called Alessi Moment, giving customers the chance to win a piece of Italian life.
To enter, all you have to do is visit an Alessi retailer to collect a promotional card with a code, which you can then use to enter the competition online. No purchase is required. However Alessi would love you to snap an image of one of their products and to share your Alessi Moment online.
A prestigious panel of judges will select the 3 best winning pictures. The first prize will be a trip to Florence in Tuscany ( 3 nights stay in 4 star accommodation with a guided tour of the city and culinary experience), the second prize will be an electric bicycle by Ducati and the third prize will be an Alessi watch designed by Achille Castiglioni.
I’ve decided to kick off the competition with my Alessi Moment using my new Espresso coffee maker La Cupola, designed by Aldo Rossi for Alessi.
Around the world during Christmas Eve, children get very excited. Every year, kids unite to put out the cookies and milk in anticipation of Santa’s visit .
I’m sure Santa would appreciate a well made cup of Espresso this year. So for my Alessi Moment, I will be brewing up a pot of special blend coffee for the kids to put out just before bedtime.
So, what will your Alessi moment be? Do enter the competition and I can’t wait to see your photos.
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.
