We can’t quite believe it’s almost the end of the year! Which means it’s time for your favorite gift-giving holidays again. We have some beautiful Mexican Christmas gift options if you’re looking for something original and handmade, whether it’s for decorating the home or giving as a present.
Mexican Serape Placemats
Nothing is more classically Mexican than our gorgeous and colorful serape placemats. These hand-woven textiles have served an incredible amount of uses over the years, from wraps and ponchos to bedspreads, horse blankets, shades, or decorations. The use of colourful textiles like this dates all the way back to ancient Mexico around the 1500s, and the introduction of foot-pedal looms allowed for bigger pieces to be woven, like these Mexican placemats.
Whether you’re entertaining or having your regular weekday meal, our serape placemats will truly bring joy to your table setting. Fun fact: serape fabrics often include red, white and green together as a nod to the Mexican flag. Can you spot it in our serape placemats?
We offer three styles of Mexican placemats. The first is based on the colors of dark blue, light blue, red and lilac. The second is based on a stylish dove grey, and the rest of the mat is a mix of amazingly vibrant bright colours. And we also have a fuschia pink, turquoise blue, yellow and purple option.
All our Mexican placemats are premium quality and are made to order. We’ve been working with the same artisans for a long time, so quality is always 100%! Each serape placemat measure 55cm x 30cm (21" x 12”)
Mexican Ceramic Skulls
Even though the Mexican painted skulls are inspired by Day of the Dead, they still make beautiful home decorations and Christmas gifts. The maker is a Guadalajara-based Huichol artist and friend of ours and makes each of these Mexican ceramic skulls in his workshop with love.
We offer two skull options for Mexican Christmas gifts. One in black and white with silver sparkles. The other offers a color variety with birds, tropical flowers, fruit or marigolds. When you order these, don’t forget to add your color of choice in the notes.
Fun fact: we can also make 100s/1000s for you in 3-4 weeks as a wholesale order. They made great wedding place settings and favors. We can even customize them with your guests’ names!
