Traditional handicrafts like embroidery, intricate lace from the island of Pag, small decorative ‘hearts’ from Zagreb, lavender bags from Hvar, locally made glass jewellery, woodcarvings and ceramics make good souvenirs, while Croatian wines and spirits, olive oils and truffle products also make excellent gifts to bring home. Local fashion label I-GLE (www.i-gle.com) has stores in Zagreb. Fairs and festivals can be a good place to buy souvenirs, or seasonal markets such as those in central Zagreb around Easter, and there are a number of shops (particularly in Zagreb and Dubrovnik) selling a good range of local products (try Bakina Kuća, www.bakina-kuca.hr). Tourists can reclaim VAT on expenditure of more than 500 Kn. Visitors should ensure that all receipts are retained after any purchase is made, as financial police have the power to fine visitors without relevant documents. This is to prevent VAT evasion by shopkeepers.
