Camino-Inspired Gift Ideas for 2021

Hey, all. I hope everyone is staying healthy and enjoying the comforts of home throughout the holiday season.  I was hesitant to publish the annual Camino gifts post this year, seeing as many of us have been struggling to survive the global pandemic and economic recession. Not being able to walk a Camino in 2020 seems like the least of our concerns. Right?  Alas, some pilgrims are still releasing books, designing products, making music, creating experiences, and keeping the spirit of the Camino alive in one way or another. I couldn’t let this year slip by without sharing their creative visions.

This year’s roundup features pandemic essentials such as face masks, aprons, and gin! Of course, there’s the traditional offerings of books, music, jewelry, and Camino experiences. Plus, there ‘s a fundraiser to help save Casa Susi. If anything, this global pandemic has brought pilgrims together from all around the world in ways we couldn’t imagine!

Note: This post will remain evergreen throughout 2021. I will add more submissions to a “New additions” shortcut link that you’ll see when you revisit this post later.
