If you don't wish to take typical souvenirs or trinkets home then these stylish designer bags are a great alternative Won't "break the bank" in pricing

This is a great little shop for giftsthat people will actually use. I believe everything here is handcrafted in the shop so it's truly an item that is made here in Ipanema Rio de Janeiro. The items are also of excellent quality.

I was expecting to see overpriced bags in an over-hyped boutique. But no! I was very wrong. Great collection, lovely staff (Thank you Adriana at the Ipanema Store for being so patient with my pickiness!) I found and bought some lovely handbags and pouches! I...More

In a good way.....OK....you want something to remind you of your trip but you don't want a sugar loaf mountain carved from coconuts? Gilson is your man. Subtle, kitsch-free, even abstract references to the cidade maravilhosa decorating stylish well-made bags, purses, handbags etc. Highly recommended!
