If the idea of finding a nice and useful souvenir for loved ones brings on a headache, there’s no need to worry anymore. From stores selling trinkets and magnets to t-shirts and wine, here is a selection of the 10 best places to buy gifts while visiting Bordeaux.

La Boutique Bordeaux

Don’t be surprised to run into Clément and its jobber filled with original souvenirs while visiting the streets of Bordeaux. In summer 2016, he launched La Boutique-Bordeaux, an itinerant boutique that sells only hand-made and items manufactured in France. For instance, buying products from his brand “Bordeaux C’est Gavé Bien” is a great idea of souvenir to purchase and bring back home. From March until November, you find Clément and his products from Tuesday to Sunday near Saint André Cathedral on Place Pey Berland (Hôtel de Ville stop on line A) from 10:30 am to 7 pm and on the same days from 7.30 pm to 10:30 p.m at Porte Cailhau (Porte de Bourgogne stop on lines A and C).
