    In some places, such as Cuba, people make their own Debian mirrors.

    General guide is in https://www.debian.org/mirror/ftpmirror and there are more instructions in the general script used.

    Then you can point your /etc/apt/sources.list to it.

    Another option, suggested in other comments, is downloading *.deb files manually for each package and dependency and performing an installation with dpkg -i package.deb.

    In a more specific approach, you have https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/Setup.

    Do you remember when you install a new Debian system and you can get packages from the CD ROM or USB stick? Debian can point to a repository in physical media, including a directory.

    Generally, you can sync a hard drive with it outside with one of the tools available for this in this last wiki page, attach it to your puter when you arrive at home and party.
