Greek gifts for Greece lovers for large budgets
#1 Greek gifts food box
A food box is one of the best Greek gift ideas for Greek people who moved abroad and miss the taste of home!
The box includes classic Greek ingredients, such as olive oil and Greek spices.
Of course, this food box also works perfectly for Greece lovers who are not actually from there, but who simply love the food!
A slightly cheaper alternative is the Gourmet box by Chic Greek Gifts.
#2 Greek coffee maker
Oh and if this coffee maker seems familiar from other Arabic countries, that is because it’s the traditional way of making coffee in those countries too. This is why I also includes the Briki on my list of best Turkish gifts.
The best gift to go with this Briki is of course real Greek coffee beans.
#3 Greek Gifts tea box
If you are looking for Greece gifts for tea lovers, this box of five different Greek teas is the perfect gift for them!
- Greek Mountain Tea (Sideritis perfoliata)
- Greek Mountain Tea with Hibiscus
- Spearmint Tea
- Chamomile Tea
- Greek Sage Tea

#4 Traditional Greek music instrument
If you are looking for traditional Greek gifts, this traditional music instrument might be a good option for you.
The bouzouki is the classic sound you hear in many traditional Greek songs.
It kind of looks like a long and small guitar.
It is one of the pricier gifts from Greece, but for music lovers, I think it’s the best! Luckily, the Greek Souvenir Shop also offers a way smaller and cheaper Bouzouki!
If they already have a bouzouki, perhaps this online course to learn how to play the bouzouki is a better gift!
#5 Greek themed gifts: board games
This chess game in the Greek mythology design is one of the best Greek gift ideas for people who love board games!
If you are looking for Greek presents for people who like board games, but not chess. Check out:
- Elysium is also a cool (and cheaper) board game about Greek mythology!
- Santorini. A stragegy game for ages eight and above
- Fight for Olympus
#6 Map of Greece
Maps are great Greece gifts for travelers who are not traveling in Greece right now. (If you pick a map of Greece of course).
It’s a beautiful addition to their home and it links back to the country they love the most!
There are many different map designs, but I personally really like this vintage design.
Would you rather give a world map? Check out my list of 25 unique world map ideas.
#7 Greek gifts wall art
Do you like the idea of giving something to decorate their homes with, but do they already have a map of Greece or would you prefer something else?
This beautiful set of five panels of Santorini might be a good alternative!
Or check out Amazon for one of the many cool Greek-inspired wall art ideas!
#8 Greece gifts spa box
This spa box is one of the best Greek gifts for Greece lovers who enjoy a bit of self-care too. The spa box includes:
- Two soap bars
- Body oil
- Foot balm
And what’s even better is that the products are eco-friendly, cruelty-free, vegan, and all-natural.
#9 Greek sandals
These sandals are the best Greek presents for people who adore the Greek fashion style!
Greek gifts for Greece lovers for mid-budgets
#10 Greece inspired passport holder
One of the best Greek themed gifts for travelers is something Greece related they would take on a trip anyways, such as a passport holder with a Greek design. You can find different options on Zazzle.
My personal favorite was this one in the Greek ornament style. Check out the next gift if you also like this style of Greek themed gifts, but you want to give something else than a passport cover.
#11 Greek themed gifts: socks
I already told you I like the Greek ornament style, which is why I picked the socks in this style too.
But if you want to give socks as Greek themed gifts, but you don’t like this ornament style as much as I do, check out the other designs on Zazzle!
#12 Greek-themed blanket
This lightweight Greek-themed blanket is perfect for people who love Greece and camping. This blanket will keep them warm during the cold nights outdoors!
#13 Greece gifts: jewelry
Greek-themed jewelry is the perfect gift for women who are obsessed with Greece!
Some ideas for the jewelry you can get include:
- Map of Greece necklace
- Evil Eye earrings or check out Amazon for more evil-eye jewelry
- Olive Leaf Necklace
#14 Greece puzzles
The best Greece gifts for travelers who are not in Greece right now are things that will still make them feel as if they are in Greece. And this stunning puzzle will do just that!
No worries if you prefer a different design, there are plenty of Greece-inspired puzzles on Amazon.
#15 Greek clock
This Athens, Greece clock is a great housewarming gift for people who love Greece, or for Greek people who moved abroad.
#16 Greek tote bag
Tote bags with a Greek mythology design are perfect ancient Greece gifts for travelers!
Tote bags, in general, are super practical, so if you would rather have a different design, check out the other alternatives on Redbubble.
#17 Greek themed shirts
If you are looking for Greece gifts for travelers for them to take on a trip, this cute Greek shirt is the perfect idea!
If you do like the idea of giving a Greek-themed shirt, but you don’t like the design of this one, check out Etsy for more inspiration.
A quick warning though. The list also includes a large number of Greek sorority-themed shirts. Nothing against sorority shirts, I just think it’s not the type of gift you are looking for when searching for actual Greek gifts.
#18 Ouzo gift set
One of the best gifts from Greece for alcohol lovers is of course one of the most famous Greek spirits: ouzo.
At the Greek Souvenir Shop you can get a cute gift set that comes with two Greece-inspired glasses as well.
#19 Travel books
The best Greece gifts for travelers are of course travel books about Greece!
Even if they are a seasoned Greece traveler, you will always be able to find a guidebook about an island or the city they haven’t visited yet. And if someone is heading to Greece for the first time, general guidebooks about Greece will always do well.
I collected a few of the best travel books for you here:
- Fodor’s Essential Greece: With The Best Island. Perfect for people who are going to explore both the islands and the mainland for the first time.
- Lonely Planet’s Greece. Lonely Planets are extremely popular and good guidebooks for budget and mid-range travelers.
- Lonely Planet’s Greek Islands. You probably already guessed that this was the best guidebook for budget travelers who would like to explore the Greek islands.
- SK Eyewitness Travel’s Greece, Athens & The Mainland. A great book for people who are going to explore Greece’s capital and the mainland.
- Frommer’s Athens and the Greek Islands. For people who will first explore the capital city and hop from island to island, the Frommer’s is a great guide.
#20 Fun Greek books
If you are looking for Greek gifts for Greece lovers whose bookshelves are already filled with travel books about Greece, perhaps regular non-travel books about Greece might be a better gift idea.
Again, I couldn’t pick just one book so I have collected a few fun, interesting, or good books about Greece in general. I also selected books within different price ranges, so you can pick one that fits your budget.
- Greece: The Essential Guide To Customs & Culture. This book is perfect for people who are planning to live, work, or study in Greece and need all the information they can get about settling and mingling in Greece. Or for people whose lover is Greek, so they will learn more about their culture and background.
- Get Your Greek On: Basic Greek in Two Weeks. A great book for people who would love to learn the basics of the Greek language.
- Bucket To Greece Vol 1. This book about a British couple that moves to Greece to start a new life. It’s a comic and inspiring book, and it’s part of a series of eight books so that you will have a gift for the coming few occasions!
- Ancient Greece: A Comprehensive Guide To Ancient Greece Including Myths, Art, Religion, And Culture. A great book for people who are interested in history and culture, specifically of Greece. The book is a bit pricier than the books above.
- Greek To Me: Adventures Of The Comma Queen. A great book for Greek language and culture lovers, but who prefer a fun and easily digestible book. The author writes about her personal trip to Greece and shares fun and interesting stories about language, culture, and history.
#21 Greek cookbooks
More awesome Greek presents are Greek cookbooks.
I have select four Greek cookbooks which I liked the most, but check out Amazon for more options if these don’t match!
- Greece: The Cookbook. This is one of the most expensive, but also the most comprehensive cookbooks on the list.
- Master Greek Desserts: 25 Delicious And Easy Recipes From Greece. A perfect cookbook for people with a smaller budget and for Greece lovers who can’t get enough of Greek desserts!
- My Big Fat Greek Cookbook. A Greek cookbook with a fun title and under 30$
- The Greek Vegetarian Cookbook. When thinking of classic Greek food, people will often think of a lot of meat and barbeque dishes, but there are also great vegetarian dishes in Greek cuisine. They are just not as well-known. Making this book perfect for vegetarians and non-vegetarians who would like to try a different part of the Greek cuisine.
#22 Ancient Greek travel mug
If you are looking for ancient Greece gifts for travelers this travel mug with a Greek mythology design might be the perfect gift. If they are familiar with the Odyssey mythology they will surely think this is a fun design!

#23 Greece travel journal
The best Greece gifts for travelers are of course travel journals specifically about Greece, so they can write about everything they have seen, tasted, smelled, and experienced during their trip to Greece!
Alternatively, you could get a travel journal that is not specifically for Greece. Check out my list of 25 super cute journals!
#24 Sweet Greece gifts

#25 Greece inspired card games
The Zeus on the Loose card game is not really one of the traditional Greek gifts, but it’s a fun ancient Greece-inspired game.
It’s small and easy for travelers to take with them on a trip to Greece. It’s a fast and thinking game, where you have to grab Zeus when the cards on the table add up to 10.
