The go-to shop for home décor and accessories. We think this just says it all. Bazaar is one of those shops that you could spend hours in, as it amazes you with ceramics and cutlery, colourful pillows and paintings, soft fabrics and linen, delicate scented candles and cosmetics and souvenirs and gifts. Spanish designer Mila Lazaro kept the beauty and authenticity of the old interior of the former bookshop and transformed it into a stunning, stylish shop.

When in Palma, Arquinesia is one of those shops that you have to visit, even if it’s just for the experience. This store can be found on a small side street in Palma’s Centre called Carrer de Sant Gaietà. You can’t pass the store without being drawn in by its atmosphere and charisma, as well as the mélange of scents that spill out onto the street,

Looking to gift a piece of Mallorca itself? Then a visit to Gordiola is a must. Founded in 1719, this store celebrates the glass making traditions of this island, which have embedded themselves firmly in the shared consciousness and culture of the Mallorcan people.

Not your regular gift shop. ‘Rapha’ is a café and shop specialized in cycling located close to the postal office in Palma’s Old Town, at Plaça del Rosari, 1. If you have a cycling-lover among your circle of close friends or family, you’ll find something here for them.
