Bring home unique souvenirs while doing something good for the environment: get some bags, wallets, and accessories made out of recycled materials at Here and Now at D’Mall, just a few steps from Budget Mart.
From the same store you can get key chains (PhP85), pouches (PhP280), and bags (from PhP1,750) made out of tetra packs and soft drink tin cans handcrafted by the indigenous people of Cebu. There are also bags made from the old kites of kiteboarders from Boracay. It is usually sold at PhP2,000.
With the vast selection of souvenirs in Boracay, you can always bring something home for family and friends. One final reminder, though: aside from cash, haggling skills are also needed when shopping in Boracay. Good luck!
