Greece Gifts for travelers

Greek gifts for large budgets

#1 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! And the best gift to go with this Briki is of course real Greek coffee beans.

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.


#2 Map of Greece

Maps are great Greece gifts for travelers or locals who can’t visit 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 on Etsy, but I personally really like this colorful one from Amazon.


#3 Greek spa gift box

A Greek bouzouki

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

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

It is one of the pricier gifts from Greece, but for music lovers, I think it’s the best! For even more beautifully decorated bouzoukis, check out Etsy.
