What is good to shop for in Argentina?

Argentina is famous for its leather goods so it's a great place to purchase leather coats, wallets, bags or shoes. Other popular souvenirs include silver handicrafts, onyx gem stones, ponchos and cashmere clothes. For a truly unique and original keepsake, try and find a mate gourd and straw. Mate is a caffeinated drink made from tea leaves that is consumed frequently throughout the day by the vast majority of Argentines.
