Towels are about 6e. We buy them and then donate them to the cat shelter. You'll get flip flops, sun hats etc much cheaper here....PRIMARK! There's a couple of souveneir shops but they're full of tat in my opinion. There's lovely jewellery sold at the market, real silver and some nice beaded jewellery.

The one thing I make an absolute point of bringing back is a bottle of caramel vodka.

Another thumbs up for caramel vodka.

Chocolate tequila was another "delicacy" I brought back in March.

Keep both of them in the freezer for that authentic Lanzarote taste!

Another vote for caramel vodka here! Even drinking that in drizzly Scotland can bring back memories of sunshine can't it.?? :-) never tried honey rum, I assume you can buy that in all of the places you can buy caramel vodka then?? X

Saffron for paella is a good buy, which you can get at public markets and supermarkets.

Look for the lovely, colourful ceramic tiles that evoke the landscape of Lanzarote. Jewelry made from lava is also typical. A bottle of Canarian mojo sauce is also a nice reminder.

If you go to Timanfaya National Park (a must), you'll also see Caesar Manrique's iconic dancing devil metal sculpture at both north and south entrances to the park. This image is available on generic souvenirs like mugs, plates and sand paintings and will always remind you of the island.
