Choose from a selection of Reed or leather bags and purses made in Portugal. Leather goods and textile work are Portuguese know-how recognized in Europe. A leather belt, a trendy hat or a cap made of mottled wool typical of Portugal will be very nice Portuguese Christmas gifts and will appeal to young and old alike and to men and women.
Portuguese jewelry: an authentic and sophisticated Christmas gift
For even more refinement and elegance, consider Portuguese jewelry. The filigree technique is an ancient Portuguese tradition.
These jewelry pieces are made in the north of Portugal, in Gondomar and Braga, in the region of Pôvoa de Lenhoso.
