Which Gifts To Add
Mycitygiftshopping.org features authentic and original gifts, representative of local cities around the world.
Gifts to be featured on this site should meet the following criteria:
- Items that relate to local tradition (traditional folk items, etc).
- Items that are locally made or based on local design.
For example: clothes by a local designer made in another country will qualify.
- Items must not be too large, must fit average size luggage and can pass custom.
The emphasis should be on original, authentic and well known local products which are representative of the city (region), rather than mass produced cheap souvenirs that are frequently found near tourist attractions.
NOTE: Gifts do not have to be unique to a city. It is alright if the same gift appears in multiple cities.
We make every effort to include the following gifts on this site:
- Well-known regional/national items.
- Items that originated from the region and are still produced locally.
Gifts that should not be included:
- Cheap souvenirs that are commonly found at souvenir shops near tourist attractions.
- T-shirts, mugs, hats, refrigerator stickers, post cards, fake jewelry, etc.
- Knock-offs or bargain hunting items.
- Fresh food and produce.
