  • Where to Get Local Miami Gifts

    While you can’t quite package sun, but you can pack sand and sea to take back in your suitcase. You could also pick up some local goodies to remember Miami by at souvenir shops.


    Whether you are a sophisticated cigar aficionado or a stogie newbie, in Miami you have hit a tobacco puffer’s paradise! From the popular Monte Cristos and Cohibas, to unknown locally hand-rolled sticks, there is a treasure trove of authentic cigars waiting to be lit up. Add to that a line of beautifully crafted humidors, cigar cutters and presentation boxes, and you have a cigar lover’s idea of paradise. Buy an individual stick to puff away or buy a bundle to take back home. Either way, from now on, every time you smell a cigar, it will take you right back to that bustling street, which is quintessential Miami.

    For an authentic cigar-smoking experience, head to Little Havana’s Calle Ocho (8th Street) where you will find a plethora of cigar stores, all complete with the ubiquitous scowling wooden Indian with the exotic headdress.

You can buy your quota of Miami jams and honeys at stores, such as Sedano’s Supermarket, that use the local farmers as their source. No matter where you get it from, your gift recipients will have a sweet disposition towards you for a long time!
