25 Czech gifts

Czech gifts for large budgets

#1 Bohemia Crystal

Bohemia crystals are one of the most traditional Czech gifts you can find. They’re a bit pricy, but make gorgeous housewarming gifts for both locals and foreigners.

Glasses from the Bohemia region have been a popular product since the Renaissance and it’s still one of the major export items from the region. Bohemia glasses are recognized for their high-quality, beautiful, and unique designs. For example, this set of six colorful whiskey glasses.


#2 Handmade puppets

Puppets are the second-best traditional Czech gifts for anyone who has a large budget to spend.

Puppet-making has a long history in the Czech Republic and they still make up a part of Czech traditions. It’s a great gift for someone with kids or for someone who loves wooden artwork.


#3 Vintage map of the Czech Republic

A vintage Czech map poster is a beautiful gift for Czech people who love to display their national pride in a stylish way.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to brag about their roots with a cool map on the wall? It’s a gift that tells your Czech friends, “I get you, and I’m in on the Czech love!”


#4 Czech language course

This is one of my favorite Czech Republic gifts for people who are seriously obsessed with the country; a complete language course.

It’s the best way for the recipient to experience the Czech Republic. Because only by mastering the native language can you actually engage with the locals. And everyone knows that the locals are the true key to experiencing a country.

So if you are ready to give the ultimate gift, go ahead and buy the complete Czech course.


#5 Phone case

For phone addicts, check out the 343 different Czech-themed phone cases on Zazzle.

And if you don’t feel like going through all these options, simply go for this beautiful one with “Prague”. However, make sure the recipient actually loves Prague (I can’t imagine anyone not loving this gorgeous city, but just double-check with your local Czechs).


#6 A trip to the Czech Republic

As always, I can’t complete a list of the best Czech gifts without including the very best gift. And of course, that is a trip to the Czech Republic.

Because what’s a better way to surprise someone who loves the Czech Republic than to buy them a ticket to Prague (or another city)?

So head over to Skyscanner and find the best flight deals right away.

Another option is to book a tour or activity through Tinggly. For example, a walking tour in Prague, or a day trip to Kutna Horá (the beautiful town in the photo, that has an interesting church made from human bones, yikes!).

And if you want to play it safe, you could also go for a Viator gift card (called a global experiences card), so the recipients can choose from all tours on Viator themselves.

#7 Czech soccer jersey

Do you need gifts from the Czech Republic for men or for soccer fans?

Then a jersey of the national team is an awesome gift idea.


#8 Porcelain

For traditional Czech gifts, you should check out Czech-made porcelain.

Czech porcelain has 200 years (or so) of tradition in the Czech Republic. Manufacturers started to settle in the republic after Chinese porcelain gained popularity in Europe. There are not nearly as many manufacturers left nowadays as there were back then, but it’s still an awesome authentic Czech souvenir, for example for a housewarming or wedding gift!


Czech gifts for mid-budget

#9 Spa wafers

Spa wafers are one of the best traditional Czech gifts for people who have a sweet tooth!

But first.

What are spa wafers?

They are a typical and very popular Czech snack. Basically, it’s two slices of thin wafers with a flavored sweet filling inside. You can find all sorts of fillings, such as hazelnut, cinnamon, coconut, or chocolate. The latter is one of the most popular fillings, which is why I selected the chocolate Spa Wafers here.

#10 Cookbooks

Great recipes from the Czech Republic: Experience the great taste of Czech delicacies

You can’t always bring home food home as a souvenir, but you can always bring Czech food to the recipient by gifting a cookbook. Such as this cookbook with recipes from across the country to try at home.

The second cookbook includes 240 recipes from Czech cuisine. The recipes are easy to prepare so any Czech food lover can create them at home.



#11 Czech beer

Are you looking for traditional Czech gifts for alcohol lovers?

Then beer is the way to go!

Did you know that the Czechs rank top when it comes to the countries with the largest amount of beer per capita?

Yeah, they do love their beer. And so do the tourists that visit the Czech Republic.

And honestly, it hardly even matters which Czech beer brand you’ll go for, they are all great. Pilsner Urquell is just one example of a famous brand, but you can find more options on Total Wine if the recipient prefers a different brand.


#12 Prague jigsaw puzzle

Is the recipient a big puzzle lover?

Then look no further!

This 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle of Prague is the gift you need.


#13 Books about the Czech Republic

The Czech Reader: History, culture, politics

The Czech Reader is one of the best Czech Republic gifts for people who are interested in history. It’s part of the World Reader series and they publish digestible, yet in-depth books for anyone who loves history.

The Diaries of Franz Kafka

Franz Kafka is a famous Czech writer from the early 20th century. This book is a collection of his diaries from 1910 to 1923 and provides a unique insight into life in Prague through his eyes.


Book cover of 'Czech Republic Culture Smart'

Czech Republic Culture Smart

The last book on this list is one of the best Czech Republic gifts for someone who wants to move there. Or for someone who wants to learn more about local customs and culture.


#14 Tumbler in Czech style

This is one of my best suggestions when it comes to Czech Republic gifts for coffee lovers; a tumbler in Czech style.

There is a total of 189 different options on Zazzle, so I am sure you can find one the recipient will love!


#15 Czech liquor

The Czech Republic is a great country for alcohol lovers. Did you know that the Czech Republic usually ranks quite high when it comes to alcohol consumption per capita or other alcohol rankings?

So if you are looking for Czech gifts for alcoholics (or just alcohol lovers), you are very likely to succeed.

Beer is one of the most popular drinks in the Czech Republic, and for beer gifts head over to #11. But besides beer, you can find plenty of other traditional Czech drinks, such as the Slivovitz plum brandy.


#16 Travel poster of Prague

This is a beautiful gift for Czech people who love Prague (or for foreigners who love the capital city). They can add a bit of Czech charm to their homes with this travel poster.


#17 Czech-themed passport cover

Personally, I think this is one of the most practical Czech Republic gifts for locals and travelers; a passport cover with a Czech theme, such as this Prague one.


#18 Travel guides for the Czech Republic

Lonely Planet’s Prague and The Czech Republic

If you are looking for Czech gifts for budget travelers or backpackers, Lonely Planet is the guidebook you need. They specialize in budget travel tips and tricks.

The last guidebook on this list is (as you probably already guessed) ideal for people who will spend most of their time in the Czech Republic in the capital city. This book will help them to discover every side of the city.


Czech gifts for small budgets

#19 Beer shampoo

So as I was telling you before, beer is immensely popular in the Czech Republic.

It’s actually so popular, that the Czechs decided to add beer to their daily personal care products as well. Hence, the birth of beer shampoo.

Yep.

It’s a shampoo with beer added to it.

I mean, people have often claimed that beer makes your hair shine, so with this shampoo, the recipient can test this beer myth for real.


#20 Chocolate bar

For more affordable sweet gifts from the Czech Republic, a tatranky bar is the gift you need.

Opavia Tatranky is a popular Czech chocolate bar and thus the perfect gift for someone who misses Czech food or for someone who loves chocolate.


#21 Alfons Mucha coloring book

Coloring books for adults are a great tool to help them relax and unwind. That’s also why I included them as one of the best gifts for meditation lovers.

And to make this coloring book one of the great Czech Republic gifts, I selected one with inspiration from Alfons Mucha; a famous Czech artist.


#22 Luggage tag

Are you looking for practical Czech Republic gifts for a frequent traveler?

Then a luggage tag in Czech style is what you need.

There are 118 different options on Zazzle. And if the recipient likes Prague, then the graffiti wall tag is a cool option.


#23 Czech make-up

For more beauty-related Czech Republic gifts, make-up from Dermacol is a cool gift idea.

Dermacol is a popular Czech make-up brand, so anything from the brand will do. Such as this lipstick. Their foundation is actually one of the most popular products, but because it’s already challenging enough to buy the right color foundation for yourself, I would advise against trying to buy it for someone else. The chances of picking the wrong one are just too high.


#24 Travel journal

Do you need Czech gifts for someone traveling to the country soon?

Then this Czech Republic journal is perfect.

They can keep track of their Czech travel memoirs in style.


#25 Tote bags

A tote bag is a super practical, yet cute gift for anyone. And for someone who loves The Czech Republic, one of the 280 Czech-themed tote bags on Zazzle is perfect!
