No trip to Argentina is complete without picking up some souvenirs to take home with you and here in Buenos Aires, you won’t be short of options…so just to get you started, I’ve compiled a list of what I think are the top ones to take home with you…your family and friends at home will thank you for it!

1)      Obviously leather is one of the things that Argentina is most famous for. There is leather all over the city and depending what you’re looking for it can be expensive or cheap…
