Shopping in Greece and Italy was so much fun on my Mediterranean cruise! The shops had so many great souvenirs — and at reasonable prices, too.
Italy is famous for leather goods, and I couldn’t resist getting a black leather tote bag — something I’ve always wanted. (Had to drag it around with me all day touring Venice, but it was worth it.) The leather smells so good and the bag feels so soft.
The selection of Greek earrings was great, too. Could’ve gone crazy buying them — but settled on a couple different pairs, plus one pair made from hand-blown Murano glass.
Olive oil soap was popular, and the bars made great gifts. Most of them had some sort of magnet or other item affixed to the outside of a prettily wrapped package, so it was like getting two items for one.
Had to get a Christmas tree ornament to commemorate the trip — and the blue-domed Greece church was just the thing.
Got a big canvas tote bag and several kitchen items, too. Loved the bright blue colors on everything.
If you take a trip to Italy or Greece, you’ll have a lot of gift items to choose from!
