25 Cypriot gifts from Cyprus

Cypriot gifts for large budgets

#1 A trip to Cyprus


If you are looking for the best Cypriot gifts for people who are obsessed with Cyprus, then a trip to their beloved island is by far your best option!

There are different ways in which you can gift a trip.

First, you can simply buy a plane ticket through Skyscanner.

Second, you could opt for a fun tour in Cyprus, such as boat tours or visits to ancient ruins. For that, head over to Viator and find the best tours they offer.

And lastly, if you are not quite sure what type of activities the recipient is interested in. Or if you are not sure when he or she will be in Cyprus again, you can also go for a Viator gift card. It’s called the Global Experiences Card and gives the recipient the opportunity to choose from all Viator tours around the world (including Cyprus).

Maps are travelers’ favorite types of wall decoration. Especially if it’s a map of their favorite country.

I love geometrically shaped maps, which is why I included this particular map. But of course, you can find plenty of other style maps of Cyprus on Etsy.


#5 Cyprus-themed jigsaw puzzle

Look no further!

This is the gift you need; a jigsaw puzzle of Nicosia.

It’s a 1000-piece puzzle of one of the beautiful old cobbled streets in Cyprus’ capital city.

This water bottle is another cool gift for people who love Nicosia; a stainless steel bottle with “I love Nicosia”.

And no worries if you are looking for Cyprus gifts for people who do not like the capital city, there are plenty more designs on Zazzle.


#7 Language courses

Complete Greek course

A language course is one of my favorite gift ideas for people who love traveling as it allows them to interact with locals in their native language. And that makes these Turkish and Greek language courses awesome Cyprus gifts.

Now, they actually speak a Cypriot dialect, both on the Turkish side and the Greek side. But unfortunately, I couldn’t find any Cypriot Greek or Turkish course online. So I picked standard Greek and Turkish courses instead.

And luckily, the standard languages are also understood on the island. In fact, the standard languages are the official languages (both Turkish and Greek), rather than the Cypriot dialect.


#8 Jewelry from Cyprus

One of the best Cyprus gifts for people who are leaving for a trip to Cyprus is a travel guide. (But always double-check if they have one already).
