For those who are trying to find something more unique to give to someone, it may be the best idea to shop in places that are a bit more unusual as well. You can always find a wide range of fun and attractive items if you are shopping for different products that come from around the world. These make much more unique gifts than something that you might find in a mall.
One gift that you might want to consider is a beautiful purse or bag from Guatemala. There are many wonderful options out there ranging from larger bags all the way down to smaller items. You might want to purchase a beautiful coin purse that you can give as a gift to a child or to someone else who might need to carry coins around.
These purses are created with very elaborate designs just so that they look very beautiful. The bright colors of the purses and their ability to hold coins with ease are part of what makes them something that is so wonderful to have around. Whoever you give one of these to, they’re sure to be delighted with such a special gift that they can cherish for years to come.
When I was recently looking for a unique gift that I could give to my kids I decided that it might be a good idea to get them something fair trade so that I would be able to teach them a bit about supporting artists in other countries. I decided to look at a lot of different fair trade gifts so that I would be able to pick something that was absolutely perfect.
I was really impressed with the different types of items that I was able to find. I considered beaded animals, different types of jewelry, and even some key chains that were all amazing items that I am sure that my children would have loved. In the end, I decided to purchase Guatemalan Huipil coin purses for them instead of buying any of these other items.
I chose these because of their intricate designs and the way that these just jumped out at me. I know that these beautiful coin purses are something that my children will always cherish as a unique gift. They will also be able to use these to carry their coins in so that they can take their money to the store when they want to buy candy.
Now that it is spring, there are many different holidays that are coming up that will require gifts. One of the ones that might be weighing on some people’s minds is Mother’s Day which is on May 8th. It is important to spend a good amount of time deciding on a gift because this will ensure that you have something to give that you actually put a lot of time into.
It might be a good idea to try to find something that is very unique to give to your mother since a gift like this is sure to stand out in her mind for years to come. During the spring it might be best to consider brightly colored items to give to your mother. Unique Guatemalan jewelry is very beautiful and would definitely make my mother smile.
One of the best things about traveling is to immerse yourself in the culture of the place you are visiting. Even when you can not physically visit a location it is fun to learn about places you may want to add to your bucket list. Collecting items that remind you of an experience or are symbols of a location where you would like to visit, is a lot of fun. Building a “wish list” collection of exotic items is an idea that can become a wonderful gift for a wedding, anniversary or other special occasion.
Even though I do travel a lot, I have many places still on my to do list. One of the places I would love to visit is Guatemala! The vibrant colors and patterns of Guatemalan products are simply amazing and each time I see the incredible workmanship in their jewelry and bags, I strengthen my resolve to visit one day.
Last year we were able to take a wonderful trip to the Caribbean. It is amazing to travel and see new places and experience new cultures. There is a quote that I remember hearing, “I haven’t been everywhere, but it is on my list.” This quote rings so true to me and my family. This love of traveling has been the inspiration behind lifehearthome.com. We love finding unique and wonderful items to share with you. One of these items has become a favorite on our trips and we look forward to using it again on our upcoming trip to South America. Our beautiful Guatemalan Huipil Overnight Bag has now been renamed “Our Traveling Bag” and it is simply the perfect carryon. This trip we will also be bringing our Guatemalan Huipil Volcano backpack. Both of these items are available at www.lifehearthome.com and are one of a kind. Check them out – you won’t regret it!
