OpariaThis week we are sharing Christmas shopping ideas for all those hard to buy for folks in your life.  

Many already know that NABO Calendars make a great gift, but did you know about all the other great NABO products out there?  Click here for more ideas.  You can also visit this link to find other great gift ideas from many of our NABO friends in the US and abroad

If you are looking for something for the bookworm in your family, shop at the Center for Basque Studies’ bookstore, use the code word “Basque Proud” at checkout and save 25% on your entire order.

If there is a musician in your family, specifically one looking for an Alboka, this is the site for you:, where you will find homemade Albokas, made in Nevada, along with all the tools necessary to play and maintain the instrument. 

If you're looking to give the gift of music, check out "the soundtrack of North American Euskal Herria," the new Amerikanuak CD.

Another budding Basque family-owned business is Half Basqued Crafts.  They specialize in handmade crafts, custom gifts, glass etching and much more.  To see their designs visit them on Facebook.

If you know of other Basque businesses out there, please share them with us at so we can link to them too.

Happy Shopping!
