Whenever I travel abroad, I’m always trying to find cute, unique gifts to bring back for friends and family. My recent trip to Chile was no exception. I ventured to markets, malls and even the grocery store in search of great gifts. Here are some of my top picks on what to bring back from Chile.
Lapis Lazuli: This blue stone is very rare (it’s only found in Chile and Afghanistan), and the intense color looks great as jewelry or figurines. Find it at markets like Los Dominicos Village.
Leather Goods: South America is known for its beef, so it’s no surprise that there’s an abundance of leather belts, purses and wallets. You can find these items everywhere from high end department stores to small artisan craft markets.
