I've never been much of a collector, minus the usual stamp collection I had when I was a kid. Since I've moved to Italy, I've started collecting Italian Bomboniere. Bomboniere are little "favors/trinkets" that are given out at weddings, first communions, confirmations, graduations and the silver and gold wedding anniversaries. They contain 5 candy coated almonds (confetti in Italian), the color depending on the occasion along with a small piece of paper with the name(s) of the person(s) and the date of the event. White for weddings, first communion and confirmtion; red for graduations. Here are photos of my bomboniere collection for your viewing pleasure. Which one is your favorite and why?
