As you’d expect from one of the Costa del Sol’s most popular destinations, Marbella is not lacking in souvenir and gift shops; whether you’re after a momento of your time here or a present for someone else, there’s plenty of choice. Read on for the best places to buy souvenirs in Marbella.
Located a few streets up from the city’s bustling port, Gipsy Marbella is a treasure trove of momentos and gifts to take back home. Its shelves are filled with polka-dotted mugs and tablewear, colourful handbags, jewellery, ornaments and cuddly toys that say “I’ve been to Spain”. Even better, it doesn’t close for the traditional three-hour Spanish lunch break.
Souvenirs and Presents Marbella is a well-stocked and decently priced gift shop just opposite Marbella’s lovely Alameda Park (well worth a visit if you’re shopping in this part of town). You’ll find all the standard take-home items here, from photo frames and flamenco figurines to t-shirts and baseball caps. Guidebooks and maps for Marbella and Andalusia are also available.
Southern Spain is a region steeped in wine-making, so there are few better souvenirs to take home from a visit here than a bottle of the local produce. Doña Copetta is the place to head: ever since it opened its doors in 2009 it has become known as one of Marbella’s best independent wine shops. Ask the friendly staff for the wines local to the Marbella area, as they’re happy to share their knowledge.
Housed in a traditional whitewashed building in the heart of the old town, Rajasthan is where to come if you’re looking for a sartorial souvenir with a difference. Its speciality is hippy-chic women’s clothing and accessories, including some exquisite handmade handbags. There are also ornaments and other quirky trinkets adorning its shelves.
A delightful little shop nestled in the centre of old Marbella, eThnoPur sells jewellery made by artisans all over the world. This is a place to linger and admire the unique designs with which rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces are decorated, before choosing something very special to take home. Maria, the owner, radiates charm and will happily tell you about the designers whose work she displays.
If you’re hunting for a consumable souvenir to take home, Doliva should be your first stop. It stocks olive oils of many different strengths and flavours, all of which you can taste before buying. The shelves are also laden with jams, marmalades, salts and wine, and the English-speaking staff are always on hand to explain how and where they’re made. The perfect place for a delicious momento of your time in Marbella.
Spain is known throughout the world for the quality of its leather goods, and a trip to Marbella’s outlet of JBrown – a family business with over 20 years of expertise – will show why. On offer here is a selection of beautiful leather handbags and purses in all colours and to suit every stylistic taste. Definitely the place to come if you’re after a gift with a little class.
