Surprise your loved ones with a piece of Slovenia

If you have no idea what to give your loved ones, friends or colleagues, you may find the perfect gift among the typical Slovenian products.

Slovenia is a nation of beekeepers, so you will come across a wealth of honey and bee products. A special experience is shopping for decorative gingerbread products.

Take your food to the next level with unique Piran salt or fleur de sel from Sečovlje saltpans. The salt is harvested by a traditional procedure that has been practiced over 700 years.

Majolka – Slovenian ceramic water or wine jugs are both decorative and useful.

Fine souvenirs include the beautiful bobbin lace from Idrija.

You might be thrilled by crystal products made by the skilled glass blowers from Rogaška Slatina.

You can’t go wrong with a bottle of premium Slovenian wine.

World-famous woodenware or ‘suha roba’ of Ribnica comes in many shapes, from spoons to baskets. Another staple is painted beehive panels called panjske končnice. 

Typical Slovenian cheeses with protected designation of origin, charcuterie such as Karst prosciutto, the Savinjski želodec or the Prleška tünka, and other foodstuffs with protected designation of origin may be the perfect gift for foodies.
