Italian gift ideas for fashion design grad

Seeking ideas for a graduation gift that we could buy in Italy for a fashion design major.

SO's sister will be graduating college with a degree in fashion design. SO and I will be visiting Florence and Rome the month before the graduation and are thinking of graduation gift ideas in advance. Max spending limit is $100 US.

Best answer: I don't have a specific recommendation, but considering your budget and the occasion for the gift I would be looking for hard-to-find raw materials that she might like to create something out of, rather than trying to acquire some cool finished piece from some cool designer. You could use it as an excuse to get out of the usual high street shopping areas during your trip and hunt down some interesting textile/leather/whatever supply shops.

Best answer: I bought a beautiful leather handbag at the leather markets in Florence, they have pretty much every style of leather good you could imagine.

Best answer: I just spent far too much at Fabriano. A designer would love anything from their collections.
