25 Swiss gifts

Swiss gifts for large budgets

#1 A trip to Switzerland

If you are looking for the best Swiss gifts for people who love Switzerland, and (very important) you also have a large budget for this gift, this is the perfect gift for you;

A trip to Switzerland!

So head over to Skyscanner now and book a flight and hotel to one of Switzerland’s beautiful cities, such as Geneva, Zurich, or Basel.

Alternatively, you can also go for one of the amazing tours from Viator. Such as day tours to one of the beautiful mountain tops in the Alps, such as Jungfraujoch. (Though this gift only works if the recipient already has a ticket to Switzerland, of course)

And the last option is to buy a Viator gift card (Global Experiences Card) and let the recipient decide when and which tour he or she wants to do.


#2 Swiss watches

Tissot watch

Are you looking for Swiss gifts for men? Then a Swiss watch is one of the best gifts you can get. There are plenty of great Swiss watch brands such as Rolex, Breguet, Omega, and Tissot.

Switzerland has a long history of watchmaking and is currently known as the world’s best place to buy high-quality watches.

So for luxury gifts from Switzerland, watches are the perfect gifts.


#3 Swiss fondue pot

Switzerland fondue set

Are you looking for Swiss gifts for someone who loves cheese? Then you will find plenty of great options in today’s post! I included a total of three Swiss cheese gifts on this list. (Check out the next two gifts to find out what the other Swiss cheese gifts are).

Switzerland and cheese are two things that go hand in hand. And I am pretty sure that most people who love Switzerland also appreciate a good Swiss cheese.

The first Swiss cheese gift can be used to create a typical Swiss meal at home, a Swiss cheese fondue. And what’s cool about this pot is that it’s completely designed in Switzerland style too.


#4 More Swiss cheese gifts: raclette

Raclette set

Raclette is another typical Swiss meal that involves cheese. In the original raclette, the top part of a round cheese is melted and then put on top of a side dish (usually potatoes). But since most of us don’t have a whole cheese at home, this smaller raclette set is more practical for private use.

All you have to do is put some slices of cheese (preferably Swiss cheese, of course), wait for it to melt, and put it on top of whatever you’re eating.

It’s a super simple way to make anything taste like delicious melted cheese!

So if are looking for Swiss gifts for cheese lovers, this raclette set is also a great idea. But check out the next gift for more inspiration.


#5 Swiss cheese

Swiss cheese

Obviously, one of the best Swiss cheese gifts is cheese.

And this set of three Swiss kinds of cheeses is perfect for that. It includes Emmentaler, gruyere, and appenzeller cheese. It’s actually called a set of Swiss fondue cheese because those are the three typical kinds of cheese used to make Swiss fondue.

But here is the cool thing about Swiss cheese. It’s also delicious if you don’t melt it!

The reason why it’s called a fondue Swiss cheese set is that the ratio is perfect for fondue, but the recipient can also just eat the cheese rather than melt it.


#6 Swiss army knife

Victorinox tool

Are you looking for practical gifts from Switzerland for travelers? A Swiss army knife is a great gift idea for that.

This multi-purpose pocket tool will always come in handy for travelers.

It includes things such as tweezers, scissors, blades, screwdrivers, and a bottle opener.


#7 Swiss absinthe

Are you looking for Switzerland gifts for people who love alcohol? Well, Switzerland is the perfect location for that.

You can find plenty of strong homebrewed schnapps (any type of strong liquors) in Switzerland. But the most famous around the world is probably absinthe. A beverage that may sometimes contain up to 74% of alcohol!

Absinthe is an original Swiss drink and thus makes one of the best gifts from Switzerland for people who don’t mind a bit of alcohol. Though, the bottle I picked “only” contains 53%.


#8 Vintage map of Switzerland

This vintage map of Switzerland is a beautiful piece of wall art for people who love Switzerland, maps, and history!

#9 Swiss outdoor clothing

Mammut rain jacket

As you would expect from a country that’s blessed with beautiful snowcapped mountains, Switzerland is home to many high-quality outdoor brands. Swiss people know how to prepare for cold and sometimes cruel weather conditions.

So if you are looking for gifts from Switzerland for people who love being outdoors, then clothing from Swiss outdoor brands is perfect.

And one of those great brands is Mammut. Basically, any item from Mammut will be a good gift, for example, a rain jacket.
