This shops sells interesting gifts that the owners know exactly where they come from and can tell you about it. That makes it more enjoyable buying gifts here. The gifts are of good quality. I bought a few silk scarves which were uniquely painted by a local artist, and other things.

We happened upon this lovely little shop where we met the lovely Iva, she was so friendly and chatted to us about her life and answered our questions about Dubrovnik. She was very patient and the carefully wrapped our gifts for the long trip home to Australia. Loved the soaps and hearts, perfect as they don't take up much space... More

Finding decent gifts to bring people in Dubrovnik was a real challenge. There are tons of knick-knack stores on the side streets, and discerning junk from quality was challenging. The first time I stopped in Medusa was to grab a few of the painted postcards they had out front, but after chatting with the woman managing the store for a... More

This shop is such a refreshing change from the typical souvenier shops that you find in dubrovnik; the items are handmade and they sell things like soaps and bath fizzies which arent tested on animals (a rarity, especially in dubrovnik!!!!). The staff in there were absolutely lovely and very helpful, they offered us free tasters of some of their local... More

This gift shop felt like a gem compared to the ones the Main Street is packed with. Handmade soaps, bath salt and excellent service at a good price. Would definitely visit again.

Went in here randomly while looking for a place to eat. The staff was very helpful and informative, and offered us to taste various of the local spirits before choosing which one to buy. They also helped my girlfriend pick a bracelet. Pricing was pretty much the same as in other souvenir shops, with the great service and air conditioning... More

Randomly stumbled onto this place and loved it. They have soaps, food and oils like other show but cheaper for sure. My highlight was the cute earrings and bracelet made from local stones. Eye what you need from other shops then come search for this hidden gem and stock up!

This is a lovely shop in the old town of dubrovnik. The staff are very friendly and approachable. The range of products is good with a range of hand made articles of quality and reasonable prices. Theres also covered well too. The prices are perhaps a little cheaper than some other parts of the old city. Got lots of great... More

This shop is not your typical shops that sell tourists tacky souvenirs like those in the main street, but instead, full of items that are handmade or from local materials. I got a nice lavender solid perfume (lavender from Croatia) and a post card (I saw the same postcard selling for 10 kuna more in another shop). Staff is helpful... More

This must be one of the nicest gift shops in Dubrovnik. I was there for a few hours visit and I was looking for a souvenir. I picked up a dice made of stone and the girl who was working there explained me all about the origin of the stone and where it was used. Very friendly and helpful.
