Gibraltar is one of Europe’s most unique destinations, and that atmosphere continues into the world of Gibraltarian souvenirs. What to buy in order to remember your time in the very edge of Europe? Read on. Duty Free Goods. Okay, so duty free goods aren't exactly a traditional Gibraltarian souvenir, but we’ll forget that for the moment. Gibraltar is a VAT free jurisdiction, so goods like perfume, alcohol and tobacco can be found here for a fraction of the standard price. Don’t pass up the opportunity to pick up some real practical bargains.
We’re all for plays on words here at In Your Pocket, so of course we’re thrilled at the existence of Gibraltar Rock. We might not eat the hyper-sugary teeth-crushing sweet anymore, but buying Gibraltar Rock from the Rock of Gibraltar is one of life’s great luxuries.
A Cuddly Monkey
Not a literal cuddly monkey, you’ll have all sorts of customs issues there and you shouldn’t really be interacting with the apes at all. We’re talking of course about a little cuddly toy version of the Barbary Macaques, cute little things that will brighten up your mantlepiece or even help you get to sleep at night.
Gibraltar isn’t famous for many things from a production standpoint, but its glassware is the exception that proves the rule. The territory is full of exquisitely made glass and crystal, from practical everyday items to objects made exclusively to look pretty. Get some from the Rock of Gibraltar, or save a few pennies by picking some up from downtown.
