‘Tis the Season to Give an Olive Tree

As you contemplate braving the stores tomorrow to shop till you drop on Black Friday, here’s a great gift without any of the hassle.

Give the gift of an Italian olive tree, along with all the luscious oil it produces for a year.

You can through Nudo-Italia.

Jason Gibb and Cathy Rogers chucked their careers as TV producers to restore an abandoned 21-acre olive grove in Italy’s Le Marche in 2005. (We should all be so lucky, right?)

In addition to selling lovely olive oils, organic jarred pesto and dried specialty pastas, they also offer a program where anyone around the world can adopt an olive tree for a year. The project is a collaboration between Nudo and small-scale artisan olive oil producers in Le Marche and Abruzzo.

You can even choose the tree you want in a specific grove. Each tree produces about 2 liters of oil a year. For $105, you receive three shipments during the year.  First, a personalized adoption certificate and booklet about your tree. Then, in the spring, you’ll receive delivery of all the extra virgin olive oil from your selected tree. Finally, in autumn, you’ll get three flavored extra virgin olive oils to enjoy, as well.

Just think: personalized, fresh olive oil direct from Italy for you or a friend or relative.

Beats racing to the mall, doesn’t it?

And if you do your ordering on Nov. 29 and adopt a tree for Christmas for yourself or a friend, you’ll enjoy a special deal — a free Three Tenors gift set for yourself. A $39 value, it includes a trio of olive oils (one of each of extra virgin, lemon oil and chili-infused), all packaged in a pretty tin box. Just use the voucher code: CyberNudo10.

    You may have just finished my Christmas shopping! I always do small gifts for my parents and one larger joint gift. This may be it! Thanks!

    That is amazing, adopt a tree, what a brilliant idea, I wonder if they send photos of the tree to that you have adopted.

    I admire people who live their dreams. What a great marketing concept… adopt an olive tree! Personally, I’d have to visit Le Marche, and hand pick my tree. You know, get to know it better, and sample some of the fabulous dishes made with it’s oil.
    Great gift, and reasonable!!! Ciao…
