10 Christmas Gifts: Original and Artisanal
Christmas in Puerto Rico its something we all look forward to. We love the season but not necessarily the part of choosing Christmas gifts. We want the perfect gift depending on the personality and taste of each person. To help you, we have prepared a guide to original Christmas gifts and all made in Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico Christmas in COVID Times
This holiday season is going to be harder to get that perfect gift because of COVID. We don’t want to visit the shops for fear of getting infected. Don’t worry, most gifts can be ordered online and received by mail. An easy and safe option.
Get the Christmas Gift with Time
As a typical Puerto Rican, DO NOT leave it for the last minute! Looking for it in a hurry will make it harder to get it. If you are ordering online, take into account the time you prepare orders and delivery of mail. Especially at Christmas the mail is slower. So if you’re sending the gifts to America, do it on time!
Gift a Puerto Rican handcraft
Why give away local artisan gift?
Made in Puerto Rico
Each piece is unique, original and made here. You buy a quality product. Craftsmen have years of experience making their craft using materials from our island.
You Protect Our Culture
Craftsmanship reinforces the cultural identity and traditions of our country. Our artisans keep alive the processes, materials and products of our cultural heritage.
You support the Local Economy
You directly support the craftsman who is creating the product and therefore the economy of Puerto Rico. That way, you’ll get your craft at a fair price.
