The 15 best souvenir shops in Lisbon

Find a souvenir from Lisbon or bring a small gift from Lisbon to your friends or family ? You may think that nothing will be easier once there. Well, think again, the neighborhoods of downtown Lisbon (Baixa, Rossio, Alfama and even Chiado) have literally been invaded in recent years by shops selling “Made in China” bad quality items, trying to copy clumsily traditional Portuguese products. As a first tip, I recommend you to buy nothing in these “discount bazaar” stores. Indeed, the products will cost you the same price or even more expensive than in a shop selling authentic products and made in Portugal. With the signs below, you will be sure to bring back an original souvenir that reflects the traditions of Lisbon and Portugal. I have already presented in another article the 10 gifts and souvenirs to bring back from Lisbon, I give you now the 15 best shops to buy souvenirs and gifts in Lisbon. You will discover a selection of shops selling traditional products, design products but also designer objects or retro items. Let’s go, follow the article!

Inside A Vida Portuguesa main store at Intendente in Lisbon, a vintage souvenir shop

Few shops in Portugal and even in the World can boast of having created a trend. This is the case of the brand A Vida Portuguesa (Portuguese Life in English) which is a bit like the mother of all the shops of vintage and retro items that flourished throughout Lisbon and Portugal. The concept has even been copied by other brands in various European capitals, including Paris. The basic idea ? To republish national products that had fallen into oblivion: perfumed soaps, perfumes, shaving products, sardine cans, olive oils, liquors, syrup etc. A Vida Portuguesa also selects products of excellence as a concept store. And of course, everything is 100% made in Portugal.
