Gifts for kids

(5 answers)
By Mariana Traveller November 2, 2018

Hello! Going to Riga for a few days, would like to buy a nice Christmas gift for my nephew and niece (4-2 respectively).
I always try to buy artiginal / authentic toys/things from different places since they live in the U.S. where everything else is cheap and accessible.
Would like to know if you have any tips on something in this line I could give them, or some specific store I could pop by and check out.

Thanks !!

If you want something original that would also develop some skills, for example, motorics, then I saw some wooden toys at Kalnciema market ( Also, it's quite a cool place to go to try lovely foods. Maybe you'll also find something interesting for yourself or some friends!

Also, from 30th of November, there will be many Christmas Markets around Riga, whereby one can always find some cute original things!

Thanks a lot! Unfortunately coming from the 3rd to the 7th november.
There will be some open air Christmas markets popping up very soon. You can find some authentic things there. If not, there are three options that come in my mind if you are looking for something specific:
- Shop Riija (located on Tērbatas street)
- Souvenir shop on Šķūņu street 15 (cannot remember the name of the shop)
- Kalnciema street market on Saturdays

All places are selling Latvian products (jewellery, clothes, tableware etc). but I believe you can find something for kids as well.

Good luck!
