(Last Minute) Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are here!

With Christmas just around the corner, the magical night of the 24th of December (or the 25th, depends from house to house) is getting closer. Filled with cozy lights, great food and your loved ones, and also the spirit of giving: giving time, love, patience, and also gifts!

And for those who might need a little bit of help when it comes to choosing those gifts for someone special, or a last minute, but meaningful gift, we created this gift guide. For this, we focused on businesses from Lisbon and Porto, curious about them? Then keep on reading!

Paris em Lisboa - Lisbon

Are you looking for linens, such as bed sheets and bedspreads, or even towels?

Paris em Lisboa has it all! This historical store opened in 1888 and since then has positioned itself as a store that offers quality products that will surely improve any space!

A Sementeira - in Porto and Arcozelo

This is the perfect place to find gifts for plant lovers. A Sementeira opened 88 years ago, and has it all, from seed and young plants to the tools needed to keep up with their little (or not so little) gardens!

Castelbel - in Lisbon and Porto

We might be a bit biased regarding this one, but the matter of fact is, it is one of our favorite businesses on this list. Sometimes, when it is the birthday from a Lisbeyond team member, the birthday person might get a candle from Castelbel. And they are always a hit, super fresh and cozy scents!

You can find them in Palácio das Artes, Cidade do Porto Shopping, Castelbel in CCB, and in the El Corte Inglés of Lisbon and Vila Nova de Gaia.

Companhia Portugueza do Chá - in Lisbon

During the winter months, there is nothing better than a nice and warm cup of tea, at least for the tea lovers among us. And to them, the best gift will definitely be a great tea blend, which you can find in this wonderful and magical store in Lisbon!

We hope that you’ve enjoyed this guide, and also don’t forget someone important!!

At the end of the day, what matters most is to be with the ones that you love the most, have all the great food that you can think of – specially our favorite of the traditional Portuguese Christmas, the Bacalhau (codfish) with olive oil and the nice potatoes!
