5 best shops for original souvenirs - gifts everyone will love

Gift shopping in Algarve can be tricky when all you find is tacky fridge magnets and cheap coaster. I've got you covered with 5 incredible shops for you to bring back something authentic and useful, worth remembering. Happy shopping!

Casa Mãe, Lagos

The concept store at Casa Mãe hotel is my favorite shop in all of Lagos. An inspiring space filled with crafts, books, clothes and beauty products from local brands and artists. This is the best place to buy unique and useful gifts that you won't find anywhere else in Algarve.

Mar d’Estórias, Lagos

Mar d’Estórias has a great collection of culinary gifts and souvenirs. Here you'll find a big variety of olive oils, canned fish, salt and spices, local liquors, wines and much more. Edible souvenirs are my favorites as you get to enjoy a taste of your holiday when you’re back home.

Deja-vu, Ferragudo

Deja-vu, a quirky shop with high-quality handicrafts, jewelry, clothing, and home decoration. This is the perfect spot for anyone looking to bring back pieces that fit the good vibes of Algarve.

Comur Conserveira de Portugal, Faro

Comur Conserveira de Portugal is the coolest shop to buy traditional canned fish. Here you'll find local flavours wrapped in pretty little boxes. Tinned fish has been a Portuguese tradition since 1853 and locals eat it with everything from bread and pasta to salad.

Porches Pottery, Porches

Porches Pottery is the pottery paradise of the Algarve. At this ceramic shop, you will be able to see the artists hand paint the final pieces. Choose your unique item from a great variety of beautifully crafted potteries.

I hope you like the stores and happy shopping :)
