A gift for you, another for the family, and another for someone special… From the tramway T-shirt to the sardine tin, we have chosen 7 items to remind you of Lisbon.

Portuguese notebooks@ Firmo
The ideal gift for anyone who goes through life writing little notes, making sketches and keeping memories. The most famous are the blue Firmo notebooks (literary reference: appears in the novel “Oracle Night” by Paul Auster).
Lisbon is an unlimited source of inspiration for souvenir T-shirts. Choose between tramway 28, poet Fernando Pessoa, sardines, tiles, fado or take them all.
Tinned fish It’s not just about the tinned sardines. Every year there are new products on the market such as cod, mackerel, eel, black swordfish or tuna with various flavors. All you have to do is choose your favorite. As their designs get better and better, these little tins are great for collecting.
