Every time we welcome lucky holidaymakers to our wonderful island of Ibiza, they take home with them a suitcase full of cherished memories, moments and stories that they'll hold in their hearts forever. But what else can you pick up as a keepsake of your time here? What are some of the other souvenirs from Ibiza you can take home with you, besides memories of Ibiza? We've been wracking our brains and shatting to our lovely guests asking them just what to buy in Ibiza, which has helped us to put together a list of the best souvenirs around. Have some of your own? Please feel free to share your own tips and add your own.
Treat yourself to some typical products of Ibiza gastronomy. Start with Sobrasada, a raw, cured sausage local to the Balearics made from ground pork, paprika, salt and other local spices. Let the memories of Ibiza wash over you as you tuck into this delicious treat when you're back home after your holiday. Food souvenirs from Ibiza really are a great way to keep your holiday alive.
Another fantastic delicacy to pick up on your Ibiza shopping trip must be Butifarra - one of the signature ingredients of Catalan cuisine - it is a traditional sausage that is pink colour and a fabulous addition to any meal back home.
3. Licor de hierbas
Instead of food products, you could always think about picking up a bottle of Licor de hierbas to help keep those memories of Ibiza alive. Hierbas, a liqueur with its roots on Ibiza, was first discovered around the Middle Ages when monks living up in the hills would cultivate herbs for medicinal purpose, and has been produced in the same way ever since.
Back to food, and it wouldn't be an Ibiza shopping trip without picking up some magnificent cheeses! Santa Gertrudis is a beautiful village in Ibiza and produces some beautifully tasty cheese of the same name. Treat yourself and take home one of the best souvenirs from the island.
5. Ibiza Sea salt
One of the reasons meals out in Ibiza are so wonderfully fulfilling are the local ingredients used by the chefs. So, if you want to take home a real taste of Ibiza, pick up some local Ibiza sea salt when you head out for your Ibiza shopping.
A scrumptious, warm and pasty-based delicacy, ensaimadas are a traditional product from the Balearic Islands and a great answer of what to buy in Ibiza. Slightly sweet and light, they're the perfect treat to enjoy, whether here or at home.
7. Local wine
Wash down all of these great souvenirs from Ibiza with a splash of local wine. Red, white or rosé, whatever your favourite, there are some great, locally grown grapes to suit your tastes.
