Holiday Gift Guide 2019: The Best Handmade Gifts for Travelers

There’s nothing like a handmade gift to make someone feel loved – even if they don’t personally know the artisan who created it.

Here are some unique handmade gifts that celebrate craftsmanship and turn travel into an art.

Mosaic Baby Alpaca Legwarmers from Peruvian Connection

The next best thing to actually cuddling up with a baby alpaca, these cozy legwarmers are a beautiful way to layer. Lighter and warmer than wool, alpaca fiber is soft and luxurious, and its use promotes sustainable agriculture in the Andes. The legwarmers are handknit by artisans in Peru – there are other patterns to choose from, including the cutest alpacas, and you will treasure them forever. Price: £79
