A checklist that will help you pick souvenirs and gifts from Brazil.
A bagful of coffee beans from Suplicy or Santo Grao is a must for anyone who has ever loved coffee.
This is how the entire Brazil treads the fine line between fashion and comfort. Huge variety at the Oscar Friere stores.
This, if you have the space and an inclination to go swoosh.
Perfect souvenir for the perfect balance.
Handmade by the Marajoara tribe of Africa, it’s a perfect gift for the culture vultures.
Karaja Tribe Baskets
Handmade by the most skilled tribesmen of Karaja, these baskets are much more than just their looks.
Gemstones, Diamonds and More
Diamonds, topaz, amethyst and more, Brazil is a treasure trove of gemstones. Get as many as the Customs Departments allows!
A Bottle or Two of Cachaca
Brazil’s most favourite distilled alcohol; goes amazing well with rum and the Caipirinha (of course!).
This one doesn’t need any words of introduction. A must for the ones in love with cigars and keepsakes.
Fruit Candies, Tonnes of Those
Sweet tooth alert! If candies could ever wed fruits, you’ll find it only at Brazil. Cashew, guava, papaya, orange, apricots and more. Choose wisely, choose all.
