What to Get for Your Loved Ones in Istanbul 

Istanbul, once known as Byzantium and Constantinople, was a significant center of exchange and commerce where merchants and the general public would swarm in search of exotic products. Today's visitors may still have a fantastic shopping experience in Istanbul. There are a staggering number of supermarkets, bazaars, goods, and obstinate merchants here. Look at the list of suggested gifts that reflect the real essence of Turkey to keep your search focused on the best possible price and keep your shopping experience in Istanbul in the correct direction. 

Coffe Cups from Turkey 

Turkish coffee is served in cups and saucers with a gold design. At Turkish homes, cups and saucers are elegantly adorned on a silver table as a sign of excellent hospitality. Turkish coffee mugs made of copper or glass. When buying a coffee kit, be sure to ask whether it can be used to make coffee or whether it's only for decoration. Many companies provide ornamental sets with non-food paints or metal alloys. Go to Istiklal Caddesi, Pasabahce, if you desire a hand-painted decorating kit made of cupber. The sets will cost very little. If you're searching for a realistic kit for your house, though, it's best to purchase it from a Turkish supermarket like Migros. There is a lovely bundle at about 15TL available there. 

Olive Soap (Traditional) 

Natural health and beauty products are becoming more popular in Turkey. Handmade olive soaps are used in this design, which is a hallmark of the century-old hammam tradition. Allow yourself to experience "firsthand" the finest handcrafted soap in the world during your vacation to Istanbul. Local soap makers combine high-grade olive oil and other plant extracts to create a beautiful soap bar for all skin types. The Egyptian Bazaar in Eminönü, just across from the Galata Bridge (Misir Carsisi), will be a great location to purchase them. 

Ceramics from Turkey 

Turkish pottery, known for their vibrant colors and intricate designs, are widely available in Istanbul. Anatolia's Iznik craftsmen soon created their own style and patterns, which were initially intended to resemble Chinese ceramics. Under Suleyman the Magnificent, this kind of pottery was in full swing by the 16th century. Abstract patterns, florals, jacinths, and tulips are all used by Turkish craftsmen. Many different techniques for glazing, firing, and coloring ceramic items have been discovered throughout the years. Ceramics may be found all throughout the city, no matter where you go. Just look for an old store in Istanbul that sells these tiles. 

Raki from Turkey 

The famous Turkish national drink Lion Milk is made with this anise-flavored liquor. It may be consumed pure, but it is most often mixed with ice and water to produce a milky white, transparent liquid. There are a lot of fish and shrimp dishes on the menu. Kemal Ataturk, Turkey's revered creator, is renowned for his raki addiction and seems to enjoy late-night talks with his friends and advisers. The most well-known brand of Turkish raki is Yeni Raki. 

These are some of the items available for purchase in Istanbul during your stay! Make a point of visiting Grand Bazaar and Pera Museum with best souvenirs for the finest gifts for your loved ones! Don't forget to pay a visit to Istanbul's ancient sites as well!
