    One really cool gift from Ecuador is tagua carvings. Tagua/vegetable ivory is carved into different figurines and jewelry. There's a great selection in Banos...and many other gift shops throughout the country will have a selection.

    Otavalo is famous for there woven items. Depending on how much room you have in your luggage you could consider blankets, hammocks, tablecloths, sweaters, wall hangings and more.

    There is also a variety of different types of paintings for sale...from traditional scenery paintings of Ecuador to eccentric almost abstract modern art.
