Here at Zingerman’s Creamery, when we say DIY Gelato Gifts, we don’t mean do it yourself — we mean design it yourself. That’s right: you’re the designer! You create your own uniquely delicious flavor of Italian ice cream, then name it and we’ll ship it to you, your friends or family. It’s one of our favorite gift ideas during for birthdays, holidays or any time of year! Here’s how it works…

Just use the handy form below to select the base (plain, chocolate, or sorbet), your flavor combination, any of our amazing mixables, and presto! You just designed your own flavor!

We’ll make up a batch of ten 12-ounce containers of your personalized flavor, and we’ll label them all with with your flavor’s name. You can give your gelato as a personalized gift, or share it with friends over a nice dinner. You can even save it all for yourself – we won’t tell!



    We use fresh milk from Calder Dairy, organic Demerara brown sugar and fresh local produce.


    We make gelato with traditional Sicilian techniques and with authentic equipment we brought over from Bologna, Italy.


    We’re making small batches right here in Ann Arbor. Zingerman’s Creamery gelato will always be far fresher than stuff that’s pre-packed and shipped across the country.


Call the Creamery to arrange for payment. You can also purchase a gift card for someone to create their own!

Includes ten 12-ounce containers, custom-made labels, and all shipping costs. We’ll send them out packed on dry ice to keep ’em frosty all the way! Or you can pick them up at the Creamery.

This special offer is only available at Zingerman’s Creamery.
