Greece Gifts for travelers

Greek gifts for Greece lovers for large budgets

#1 Greek gifts food box

A food box is one of the best Greek gift ideas for Greek people who moved abroad and miss the taste of home!

The box includes classic Greek ingredients, such as olive oil and Greek spices.

Of course, this food box also works perfectly for Greece lovers who are not actually from there, but who simply love the food!

A slightly cheaper alternative is the Gourmet box by Chic Greek Gifts.

#2 Greek coffee maker

A real Greek coffee is made with a Briki coffee maker, so if you want to give a Greece gift to a coffee lover, getting them a Briki would be the best gift!

Oh and if this coffee maker seems familiar from other Arabic countries, that is because it’s the traditional way of making coffee in those countries too. This is why I also included the Briki on my list of best Turkish gifts.

The best gift to go with this Briki is of course real Greek coffee beans.

#3 Greek Gifts tea box

If you are looking for Greece gifts for tea lovers, this box of five different Greek teas is the perfect gift for them!

It includes:

  • Greek Mountain Tea (Sideritis perfoliata)
  • Greek Mountain Tea with Hibiscus
  • Spearmint Tea
  • Chamomile Tea
  • Greek Sage Tea

#4 Traditional Greek music instrument

Traditional Greek gift: bouzouki
Traditional Greek gift: bouzouki

If you are looking for traditional Greek gifts, this traditional musical instrument might be a good option for you.

The bouzouki is the classic sound you hear in many traditional Greek songs.

It kind of looks like a long and small guitar.

It is one of the pricier gifts from Greece, but for music lovers, I think it’s the best! Luckily, the Greek Souvenir Shop also offers a way smaller and cheaper Bouzouki!

If they already have a bouzouki, perhaps this online course to learn how to play the bouzouki is a better gift!

#5 Greek-themed gifts: board games

#6 Map of Greece

Maps are great Greece gifts for travelers who are not traveling in Greece right now. (If you pick a map of Greece of course).

It’s a beautiful addition to their home and it links back to the country they love the most!

There are many different map designs, but I personally really like this colorful one.

But you could also get a modern illustrated one, or one for specific destinations in Greece, such as Athens or Thessaloniki.

Would you rather give a world map? Check out my list of 25 unique world map ideas.

#7 Greek gifts wall art

Greek gifts for Greece lovers for mid-budgets

One of the best Greek-themed gifts for travelers is something Greece related they would take on a trip anyways, such as a passport holder with a Greek design. You can find different options on Zazzle.

My personal favorite was this one in the Greek ornament style.  Check out the next gift if you also like this style of Greek-themed gifts.

#11 Greek-themed gifts: socks

If you do like the idea of giving a Greek-themed shirt, but you don’t like the design of this one, check out Etsy for more inspiration.

A quick warning though. The list also includes a large number of Greek sorority-themed shirts. Nothing against sorority shirts, I just think it’s not the type of gift you are looking for when searching for actual Greek gifts.

#18 Ouzo gift set

One of the best gifts from Greece for alcohol lovers is of course one of the most famous Greek spirits: ouzo.

At Drizly, you can find quite a few different ouzo brands from Greece, though the most popular one is Metaxa Ouzo.

#19 Travel books

The best Greece travel books

The best Greece gifts for travelers are of course travel books about Greece!

Even if they are a seasoned Greece traveler, they will always be able to find a guidebook about an island or a city they haven’t visited yet. And if someone is heading to Greece for the first time, general guidebooks about Greece will always do well.

I collected a few of the best travel books for you here:

#20 Fun Greek books

Fun books about Greece

If you are looking for Greek gifts for Greece lovers whose bookshelves are already filled with travel books about Greece, perhaps regular non-travel books about Greece might be a better gift idea.

Again, I couldn’t pick just one book so I have collected a few fun, interesting, or good books about Greece in general. I also selected books within different price ranges, so you can pick one that fits your budget.

#21 Greek cookbooks

The best Greek cookbooks

More awesome Greek presents are Greek cookbooks.

I have selected four Greek cookbooks which I liked the most, but check out Amazon for more options if these don’t match!

  • Greece: The Cookbook. This is one of the most expensive, but also the most comprehensive cookbooks on the list.
  • Master Greek Desserts: 25 Delicious And Easy Recipes From Greece. This a perfect cookbook for people with a smaller budget and for Greece lovers who can’t get enough of Greek desserts!
  • My Big Fat Greek Cookbook. A Greek cookbook with a fun title and under 30$
  • The Greek Vegetarian Cookbook. When thinking of classic Greek food, people will often think of a lot of meat and barbeque dishes, but there are also great vegetarian dishes in Greek cuisine. They are just not as well-known. Making this book perfect for vegetarians and non-vegetarians who would like to try a different part of the Greek cuisine.

Greek gifts for small budgets

#22 Greek tote bag

#23 Greece travel journal

The best Greece gifts for travelers are of course travel journals specifically about Greece, so they can write about everything they have seen, tasted, smelled, and experienced during their trip to Greece!

Alternatively, you could get a travel journal that is not specifically for Greece. Check out my list of 25 super cute journals!

#24 Sweet Greece gifts

  • Salted caramel
  • Pistachio
  • Hazelnut
  • Kataif

#25 Greece-inspired card games

The Zeus on the Loose card game is not really one of the traditional Greek gifts, but it’s a fun ancient Greece-inspired game.

It’s small and easy for travelers to take with them on a trip to Greece. It’s a fast and thinking game, where you have to grab Zeus when the cards on the table add up to 10.
