There are numerous gift shops and souvenir shops in Lake Como. Most of the towns and villages have some type of shop where you can buy a momento of your holiday. Menaggio has a lovely shop called Il Coccio (near the bus station) and in Tremezzo you will find ‘Fleur dis Lis’, both are fantastic shops with beautiful gifts; terracotta pots, plates, murano glass frames, paintings, silk scarves and much more.
As an alternative to these types of shop you could always look out for local produce such as olive oil, wine or honey. You will often see signposts for these items outside the local farms where they are actually made. More often than not you will come across these farm shops on a leisurely stroll through the village.
Leather goods and especially silk are abundant in Como and are reasonably priced.
