Chilean gifts for large budgets
#1 A trip to Chile
Alright, I already said it in the introduction, but I’ll say it again. If you are looking for the best Chilean gifts for people who love Chile, a trip to Chile is the best gift you can get.
You do need a larger budget for this gift, but if you do, there are three options for a trip to Chile.
You could either book a hotel and flight on Skyscanner for people who don’t have a ticket to Chile yet.
But if the recipient already has a trip planned to Chile (which is not unlikely for people who love Chile), you could also check out Viator for fun day trips or tours to gift.
And if you are not sure what type of activity the recipient would like, go for the Global Experience gift card. This is the Viator gift card and gives the recipient access to Viator’s tours across the world.
