In it we go through every shop, every stall to tell you what you will find and what we recommend you take home as a souvenir.

Traditional Ibiza souvenirs

Beyond the typical magnets, lighters and mugs, in Ibiza you can find a wide variety of traditional souvenirs from the island. That they are truly indigenous and just there.

Herbal liqueur

One of the most authentic and traditional souvenirs of Ibiza is the herbal liqueur, known as “Hierbas Ibicencas“. This liqueur is made from a mixture of local herbs, such as fennel, thyme, rosemary and mint, macerated in alcohol. It is perfect as a digestive after meals and carries the flavour and aroma of the island in every sip.

Ibiza salt

Ibiza’s salt is another typical souvenir that is not only an excellent condiment for cooking, but also a symbol of the island’s rich salt-making history. This sea salt, harvested in an artisanal way in the Salinas de Ibiza, comes in various presentations, including fleur de sel and coarse sea salt, and is appreciated for its purity and distinctive flavour.

Local wines

Ibiza also has a small but growing wine industry. The local wines, produced in family-owned wineries, offer a range of unique flavours influenced by the island’s climate and soil. Varieties such as Monastrell and Malvasía are excellent choices to take home and share with friends and family.

Ibiza has around 10 bodegas producing local wine, and the annual wine production on the island is approximately 1 million litres.

Artisan Foods

For food lovers, Ibiza offers a variety of artisan foods that make perfect souvenirs. These include local cheeses, extra virgin olive oils, Ibiza honey and traditional sausages such as sobrasada. These products capture not only the flavour of the island, but also its culinary tradition.

Handmade crafts and art

There is no price for something handmade. Something that has been given love and hours and hours of work so that you can then have it. That’s why Ibiza’s handicrafts are so popular and one of the most popular souvenirs.

Local ceramics

Ibiza ceramics are known for their rustic designs and different and original colours, reflecting the culture and natural environment of the island. From plates and bowls to decorative figurines, local ceramic pieces make perfect gifts for those who appreciate art and craftsmanship.

Jewelry and accessories

Ibiza’s markets and shops are full of handmade jewellery that captures the bohemian essence of the island. Unique pieces made from natural materials such as shells, semi-precious stones and precious metals are ideal for carrying a piece of Ibiza with you or giving to a friend.

Bohemian decor

Ibiza is synonymous with bohemian style, and this is reflected in the decorative items available on the island. From ethnic patterned cushions and blankets to lamps and macramé ornaments, these products bring a touch of Ibiza’s vibrant culture to any home.

Natural products

Ibiza’s natural and organic products are another great souvenir. This includes cosmetics made with local ingredients such as aloe vera, handmade soaps and essential oils. These products are not only good for the skin, but also evoke the scents and tranquillity of the island.

Ibiza outfit

If when you go to Seville you can buy a flamenco dress and when you go to Madrid you can take a parpusa, the typical cap of the “chulapo” costumes… In Ibiza you can also take back as souvenirs typical island attire.

Adlib fashion

This fashion has been established in Ibiza since the 1970s. Its name means “at will” or “as you wish”, which is exactly what this fashion is meant to reflect. Individual freedom. 

This style is characterised by its comfort, simplicity and beauty. It is the perfect combination to reach that bohemian spirit that characterises Ibiza so much. 

Adlib fashion is distinguished by several characteristics that make it unique:

  • White clothing
  • Lightweight materials, such as cotton or linen
  • Flowing cuts and loose-fitting garments
  • Lace and embroidery detail

Beachwear and accessories

The part will be part of your journey and there is bound to be something that reminds you of it. Besides, what would it be like to take something brought from the coast of Ibiza to another beach in the world? That’s why, in the promenades right next to the most famous beaches, you can find a variety of beachwear and accessories that will be useful for your next trips: sarongs, handmade beach bags… Nothing better to remember the Ibiza sun!

To find all these wonderful souvenirs, there is no better place than Ibiza’s street markets. Some of the most popular include the Mercadillo de Las Dalias, famous for its hippie atmosphere and handmade products. It receives more than 1 million visitors a year and is one of the main points of sale for handicrafts and local products.

Another of the most important places to buy souvenirs is the Punta Arabí Market, the largest and oldest market on the island, where you can find a wide variety of souvenirs and local products.
