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.

#7 Language courses
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 courses 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.

Sister is a Cyprus local brand that sells handmade and unique jewelry, such as this cute lemon-shaped pendant.

This is another book set during one of the wars that shaped Cyprus. This time it’s in the 1950s and it is about the author’s experiences settling in Cyprus. It’s actually more of a travel memoir written in a very poetic style.

For the best nostalgic Cypriot gifts, this is what you need.
A candle with the smell of Cyprus that will take the recipient back to their beloved country, even when they’re far away.
