Elusive foodie gifts tools and food 2012 thread?

Family is going to Italy and has asked for a list of foodie gifts to bring back for other family. Besides cheese, olive oil and vinegars...are there some things more elusive?
I have read the threads previous to this but was wondering about people in recent trips and those who have returned.
I am thinking:
saffron
wild fennel pollen
tuna
chitarra for pasta making
a good rolling pin (not sure)
lentils or legumes
herbs: mentuccia, wild fennel, fogli di mirto
spring loaded pasta stamp?
Alici (colatura and filets)
cherries in amarene
alchermes

What small or larger kitchen items for a real cooker and baker would be good? What about black steel pizza trays?
