Czech Christmas gifts from Prague

When you travel to Prague, regardless of the time of year, you may be shopping for gifts to present to your loved ones at home. Consider these Czech gift ideas that you can easily find during your trip to Prague.


Czech garnets are one of the most popular gifts to give from Prague. Czech garnets have been prized for their deep red color. In Prague, you will find them faceted and set on necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, brooches and cufflinks.

You will find small pieces suitable for everyday use and large pieces suitable for special events. Some stores even sell antique pieces, although retro-style garnet jewelry is also available, possibly at a lower price. Buy outside the main tourist areas at the best prices.

Glass and crystal

Czech glass and crystal can be practical, decorative, or both. Boxed wine sets or glasses can be purchased at some stores. Czech glass and crystal shops will also have handicrafts for sale. Give New Town a try if you’re looking for Czech glass and crystal, and compare prices and quality before deciding on a piece or set to take with you.

Another option is Czech glass and crystal jewelry. Look for beaded necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Prices and quality vary widely from store to store, so shop around to compare your options.


Puppets can be bought in various stores in Prague. Handmade puppets can be quite expensive, but these fancy toys are packed with personality. Puppet artisans spend long hours making these expressive “toys,” putting a lot of thought into their facial expressions and clothing. They make unique Christmas gifts for the hard-to-buy ones on your list.

Botanical beauty products

Botanicus beauty products are organic products made in the Czech Republic from natural ingredients. Botanicus has several locations in Prague that sell soaps, lotions, shampoos, and other beauty products. Use them as packers or present your loved one with a Christmas gift basket filled with Botanicus goodies.

Czech made products

Other great Prague Christmas gifts can be found in Prague’s seasonal markets and shops that sell Czech-made goods. Wooden kitchen utensils, fabrics printed with traditional designs, Christmas decorations and Czech Easter eggs are just some of the Czech-made products sold in Prague. Manufaktura is a source for Czech-made products.

Getting the best price

Never buy the first example you see of the gift you plan to buy. Often times, you will see a similar item of better quality or a better price elsewhere. Stores in tourist areas of the city (think Old Town and Castle District) will brand their wares more, while sellers with fewer stocks in towns outside of Prague can offer the same items at considerably cheaper prices. Seasonal markets are also great places to find Czech gifts!
