Travelling around the world and visiting new cities is exciting and fun, but it is also pleasant to bring back some souvenirs as good reminders of the new places you have seen. Finding something small and lovely, but representative of the places you visited, is a great way to preserve your memories or give your friends a distinctive gift.
You can bring back sculptures, jewellery and other small items such as magnets, key rings in more than 200 identified shades of Baltic amber. Amber items are seen as a talisman of good luck and a symbol of general protection, particularly the ability to ward off the evil eye.
What to buy in Latvia?
If you want to find souvenirs that have an alternate purpose other than just being a souvenir and wish to use them when you get home, then wooden spoons and other cutlery could be great choice for you. You may also buy different decorative wooden items like sculptures, decors with ornaments, Latvian signs or views of Riga, clocks, puzzles, candle holders, magnets, coasters and many others.
Earthenware is described as a piece of art full of good energy; therefore, ceramics – pots, vases, candlesticks, whistles, magnets, toys, decorative bottoms also are good practical or decorative souvenirs to choose from.
Linen items are lovely and most of them are usable, so it means that you would not put them in a box to be forgotten at home.
