Gifts and Christmas Presents for Cubans

This website has the largest collection of Cuban recipes online since 2001, so it's no surprise that I'm often asked what type of gifts are best for Cubans.  There are two excellent websites that I recommend:

traditional Mexican wedding shirt

MyCubanStore has a variety of Cuban clothing that you can buy for men or women, although they have a great selection of shirts for men.  Guayabera shirts come in a wide variety of styles and colors, and they're perfect for casual or dress wear.


One of my personal favorite brands is Cubavera, which has guayabera shirts that are a bit more detailed than normal Cuban shirts.  Best of all, they're available in large sizes.  Guys like myself who wear big and tall clothing usually have a hard time finding guayabera shirts that fit, so Cubavera makes a perfect choice. 


The site also has pants, printed t-shirts, cool hats, and gift baskets.  For Cuban women, they offer jewelry, beach dresses, sandals, and even lady's cut guayaberas.  Again, that website is:


Another great gift from that site is a mojito glass gift set, for making the famous Cuban cocktail.  Cocktail glasses, mint mix pitchers kit and barware make a great holiday present.


Don't forget that while you're here, you can learn how to make a mojito using our traditional recipe.


Aside from that, there are some other great gifts on the Cuban Food Market website that I linked above, especially cooking stuff.

Their website has just about everything that you can imagine.  Cuban coffee, gift baskets, books, music, fresh-baked pastries, pig roasting boxes, crackers, sandwich presses, you name it. 


From that site in particular, I've purchased a great deal of things for myself including domino sets with the Cuban flag, Cuban sandwich makers, tostoneras (tostones press), and fresh Cuban bread that they ship in from a Miami bakery.  Visit the contact page if you have more questions about gifts for Cuban-Americans that you'd like help with.
