If you are looking for a souvenir or gift that’s unique and is going to remind you of Geneva, here are 10 of the best shops to check out.
Looking to decorate your house with a nice cow bell? Or maybe you want to wake up to the chime of a cuckoo clock? Alptitude has got you covered and more. They’ve got so many Swiss branded products which are particularly heavy on the cows that it’ll make your head spin. Many of them are perhaps a little kitsch for most, but you’re sure to find at least one thing to remind you of Switzerland here.
Le Caveau du Bacchus
Perhaps few other souvenirs will be as treasured as a Swiss wine. As one local joke goes, the Swiss winemakers don’t export much wine because they drink it all themselves. But it is true that the Swiss export less than 5% of their wine, so you are unlikely to find it elsewhere. Le Caveau du Bacchus has a great collection of Swiss wines to browse, many of them from the local Geneva region. They also offer tastings.
What better way is there to show off your worldliness than with a souvenir from the United Nations? While the bookshop, unsurprisingly you may say, mostly stocks books related to the UN and its work, it also has a selection of branded souvenirs for your memories or to please that budding peacekeeper in your family.
International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum’s Shop
At the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum’s shop, you can show your support for the humanitarian cause. Choices are limited in the museum’s small gift shop, but in this immensely interesting, yet sombre museum, it may well be a powerful reminder of whatever lesson you take away from its harrowing exhibitions.
International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, Avenue de la Paix 17

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.

I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
