OK so that was a mouthful; but, if you have ever gone shopping in touristy areas you will see why this article is really neat.
I get it. You have to bring back some souvenirs from Jamaica. You have to bring something back for Aunt Sue and something for the gal at work who has been asking you about your trip for the last 3 weeks.
So where can you go that’s quick and easy to get souvenirs from Jamaica that won’t cost an arm and a leg?
First off, don’t go following the other tourists like lambs to the slaughter, going to the same tired stores and buying the same souvenirs like everyone else. Learn what guests at Mais Oui know!
We curate predominantly locally-made items which we enjoy and which we think will interest our guests further showcasing Jamaica’s rich culture and identity. I especially love the ceramic pieces hand-made in Kingston by Frazier Ceramics, just as beautiful as Wassi Art, but less expensive.
Our Blue Mountain coffee is authentic, direct from the factory, and much cheaper than at the airport, or even local stores. The art is by local Jamaican artists, including two of my absolute favorites, Richard Hall and Leopold Barnes.
Once you take a peek, you probably won’t want to be bothered spending hours driving around to find souvenirs, plus you will have the added benefit of supporting the local economy.
My favorite store is Things Jamaica with their selection of high-quality, locally-made, upscale souvenirs, hand-made soaps, and art pieces.
For good liquor at great prices, check out Jamaica Farewell. Plus, they do such a nice job of packaging your purchases to prevent breakage.
So there you have it – 5 cool places to get souvenirs from Jamaica.
‘Til next time.
Think and dream Jamaica!
