If you need to have a souvenir that deals specifically with Eva Peron (Evita) well now you can!
Surprisingly, most of the souvenir stores in Buenos Aires have very little about Evita.
Nora Iniesta is an artist and she produces paintings and other media. You can have some neat things about Evita or more traditional Argentine topics.
Her boutique is by appointment only, so you can imagine it will be somewhat pricey

Nobrand is a design company based in Buenos Aires. The company started in 2003 developing the urban icons of the Idarg project, and transforming them into products (objects, accessories and apparel). Idarg, which means Argentinean Identity, is an iconography developed by Graphic Designers Hernán Berdichevsky and Gustavo Stecher that rebrands and represents the country’s historical events, art, geography, cuisine and traditions. It’s a new symbolism for Argentina, and the designers have embodied those icons into an international line of clean design products.

The corner of Avenida Callao and Avenida Corrientes, a traditional meeting point for the bohemia and just about anyone interested in the arts, is dominated by the white façade of Zival's, the most famous tango music shop in the world. Although Corrientes is lined with book and music shops, the shop stands out for its excellent selection and good organization.
It is especially strong on Latin American music, everything from Mexican ranchera, Cuban salsa, Colombian cumbia to Chilean folk music, and has the most extensive list of tango (the wide variety of tango styles) and other Argentine music. Books are available as well, mostly music, photography and art related, and it offers the greatest selection of tango DVDs. Zival's has the widest tango and Argentine music CDs and DVDs catalogue online; they ship worldwide.
I had a long list of music that I wanted to buy, especially the old tango recordings, and very much enjoyed browsing through the shop's collection. There are listening stations and the staff was helpful as well. As I was getting more titles from my Argentine friends, I had to return several times.
It is open Mon-Sat 9:30am-10pm.
What to buy: tango music CDs and DVDs as well other Latin American music styles; books about music photography and art
What to pay: it depends on the title, but generally CDs and books are quite affordable in Argentina :)

It's the Virgin Megastore/HMV/fnac of Argentina - the stores stock books, dvds, fairly cheap electronic equipment (including some very cheap unknown brand portable cd players), concert tickets and lots and lots of cds.
If you want a chance to browse and sample some of the latest S American groups head over to their flagship store on Avenida Santa Fe where there are several listen pods set up - or you can take a cd to the desk and ask the assistant to play it to you.
If you are carrying a bag and the security guard starts waving at you it's because you'll have to stick in in a locker which needs a 1 peso coin - you'll get it back afterwards.
The exchange rate means you can get some real bargains (I bought 28 cds here including lots of British bands as well as some Argentinian discoveries) so best take advantage of the opportunity while it lasts.

This shopping mall is located in Recoleta, one of the trendiest areas in Buenos Aires.
It is entirely devoted to interior design. It is a favourite spot for tourists and is surrounded by an enormous park, some museums, fairs, and cultural centres.
Sixty stores are spread over two stories and feature leading design firms. A spectacular veranda is onsite as well as numerous restaurants ranging from a traditional criollo barbecue restaurant to a branch of the Hard Rock Café.

This is a popular market set in the center of Palermo Soho area. Its a fun bustling market where venders set up at around noon to sell their wares. There are some leather goods and jewellery , scarves and shawls . None are high qaulity but I did manage to get a pair of handmade , interesting earrings for 15 pesos.
There are lots of shops leading to the area that are also worth exploring too.

When in Buenos Aires I can say I always come here for my wine needs. This last trip I had to buy some from the duty free shop at EZE due to the carry on regulations but I usually try to get what I need here.
Alex is a very good person to come see for this. He will take the time to help you find what best suits your needs and tastes and is quite well informed on the ins and outs of getting you and wine together both there and at home.
Each year during Cow Do he also hosts a charity wine tasting where all the proceeds go to a local hospital.
What to buy: On my last trip we carried off 18 bottles of wine from Alex; some reds, whites and sparkling. We also purchased some bottles to keep in the apartment during our trip and some sparkling to take to the Falls later in the trip.
