The name Regalame came to be because of the quaint way Costa Ricans have of asking for something you have. “Regalame su sombrilla, por favor”. This literally means, “Make a gift of your umbrella to me, please”. How can you refuse? And it is a perfect name for a gift shop and art gallery that’s been a part of both Villa Blanca and Si Como No Resort , where the first Gift Shop and Art Gallery was created by Lorraine Champagne over 15 years conveniently located between Quepos and the national park with 3 kilometers in either direction.
Regalame was born of an idea that there should be a gift shop and gallery representing products made in Costa Rica. Initially it took three years finding the local talent for wood, ceramic and pottery crafts. Painters were a little harder to find, but with perseverance and a real love of art they managed to assemble some of the finest and most popular artists living in Cost Rica.
The beautiful examples of tropical woodcrafts available in are by artists who have embraced the idea of sustainable practices creating art pieces and souvenirs from fallen wood rather than taking down a perfectly healthy tree.
