No trip to Argentina is complete without picking up some souvenirs to take home with you and here in Buenos Aires, you wonâ€™t be short of optionsâ€¦so just to get you started, Iâ€™ve compiled a list of what I think are the top ones to take home with youâ€¦your family and friends at home will thank you for it!
1)Â Â Â Â Â Obviously leather is one of the things that Argentina is most famous for. There is leather all over the city and depending what youâ€™re looking for it can be expensive or cheapâ€¦
2)Â Â Â Â Â A tub of Dulce de Leche is a mustâ€¦you have to show your family and friends back home what theyâ€™ve been missing out onâ€¦and apart from anything else, you canâ€™t just go cold turkey, youâ€™re going to need some back home to keep you going before you can wean yourself off it!
3)Â Â Â Â Â The belts you get in Argentina are famous all over the world, so you canâ€™t leave Buenos Aires without oneâ€¦why not stock up and then you can take them home as presents, the perfect present for brothers and sisters alike!
4)Â Â Â Â Â Espadrilles are absolutely everywhere in Argentina. Not only do they look good but they are also unbelievably comfortable which is just ideal! And you can be sure that theyâ€™ll be a lot cheaper here than back homeâ€¦
5)Â Â Â Â Â As touristy as it sounds, you cannot leave Argentina without a mate set. There are some really decorative ones but you may have to trawl through hundreds of others first so be prepared and be patient!
6)Â Â Â Â Â Argentina is the 5th largest producer of wine in the world. Mendoza is responsible for around 60% of Argentinaâ€™s wine exportation so if youâ€™re going to visit there then be sure to buy some, thereâ€™s no excuse not toâ€¦everyone at back home will thank you for it!
7)Â Â Â Â Â Urban street art has become a really famous part of Argentine culture and consequently is now quite widely sold. If you still have room in your suitcase, then you should definitely pick something up.
