Are you looking for the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list? Sure you are. We all are! Well, Dolce & Gabbana might have you covered. Just in time for the holidays, the fashion label is releasing a tin of pasta that contains four different varieties in a cool, collectible tin for $110. They're only making 1,000 pieces available in the U.S. and, before you stick your nose up and huff, "I can buy that for $5 at Aldi," I'm here to say it might actually be worth it.

This might seem more than extravagant for some, but it's a collaboration with Pastificio Di Martino, the official James Beard partner and an amazing family-run operation. Sure, pasta over a few dollars seems like something Donna and Tom from Parks and Recreation would do on Treat Yo Self Day, but in reality if you went out to a high-end restaurant for an amazing pasta dish you would be spending more than that per plate and not feeding a few people per bag. So snooty? Absolutely. Unreasonable? Not so much.

Each set will contain the collectors tin, two bags of spaghetti, one bag of penne mezzani rigate, one bag of mista corta, one bag of paccheri, and, last but not least, a Dolce & Gabbana apron. Which, if you're like me, will be the only piece of D&G in your wardrobe!

The pasta will be released on November 15 in fine food retailers, but you can pick up your kit online now. So hustle up, buttercup, before they're all gone!
