I have no idea what I should bring home to everyone. I hate getting things that just sit on a shelf so I was thinking Polish specialty items, like chocolates or other goodies. Does anyone have any ideas?

I like to bring spice mixes and kitchen utensils for making local foods...but I'm a bit of a dork like that.

Buy a folk neckerchief, like this:

It was a very fashionable accessory recently

Or earrings with such motives:

Lots and lots of Amber, and some of the great wood carvings. These are a few of the things I bring back, and all love them.

Pieguski and Michałki - the Brits are enchanted with those. They hold llong conversations over the ingredients.

The most widely known source for folk art and souvenirs is Cepelia:

It might be a terrible thing to say but there are always some souvenir shops at the airport ...

If you are looking for a brick-amd-mortar store, the Cepelia shop in Warsaw is on the corner of Marszalkowska and Jeruzalimskie, across from the central train station.

Solidarność Śliwka Nałęczowska. Plums in chocolate. Always a winner. Make sure they are made by this company. Some of the cheaper knock-offs are very inferior.


  • Available everywhere
