Argentinian gifts for large budgets
#1 A trip to Argentina
If you are looking for the absolute best gift for people who love Argentina, then a trip to their favorite country is by far the best gift you can get.
There are three different options here.
You can check out Skyscanner and find flights and hotels to Argentina.
When the recipient already has a trip planned to Argentina, you can also check out Viator for cool activities in Argentina. Some examples of activities you can book through Viator are mountain tours, Buenos Aires walking tours, and a lot more.
Lastly, if you are not sure what kind of activities the recipient likes, you can also go for the safe option, a global experiences gift card. The gift card is powered by Viator and the recipient can choose from their tours around the world.
#2 Argentinian leather items
Argentine leather is one of the most famous gifts and souvenirs from Argentina.
Argentine leather is known for its high quality, so it’s a great gift for someone who appreciates luxury goods and who loves to look fashionable.
#3 Argentina soccer gifts
Are you looking for Argentine gifts for people who love soccer? Then anything related to their national team, Messi or Maradona (the two most famous players from Argentina) will be perfect.
But if you know which local team the recipient supports, you can also go for a jersey from those teams. The two largest clubs from Argentina are Boca Juniors and River Plate, so check out Amazon for those two jerseys too.
#4 Traditional alpargatas shoes
Are you looking for traditional Argentinian gifts for men? Then the most popular shoewear from Argentina is the perfect gift.
I know that TOMS is not an Argentinian brand, but before you head to the next gift, hear me out.
The classic TOMS shoe is actually based on the Argentinian alpargatas shoe.
Alpargatas from Argentina are popular because of their comfort, durability, and low cost. Traditionally, the soles were made from jute, but nowadays they are often made from rubber. And the now-famous design by TOMS is actually based on this traditional shoe.
So if you are looking for fashionable, and traditional Argentinian gifts, then these shoes are the perfect gift.
#5 Argentinian yerba mate
If you don’t know what yerba mate is and you have no idea why this is one of the best Argentinian gifts, you’ve probably never been to Argentina or spent time with an Argentine.
Because boy, do they love their mate. They even have a national Mate day (30th of November)!
I’ve met quite a few Argentinian while traveling abroad and they all either traveled with yerba mate or repeatedly mentioned how much they missed it.
So first thing first, what exactly is yerba mate?
Yerba mate is a tea-like drink, and it’s the national drink of Argentina.
Yerba means herbs, and that’s basically what it is. It’s chopped tea leaves and herbs put in hot water in a cup (called a mate). It’s drunk with a straw that also functions as a sieve.
