Best gift shops in Belgrade made in Serbia
We have set out to make a list of the best gift shops in Belgrade where you can find unique and interesting gifts made locally and make gift shopping a little bit easier for you.
Plišani meda online shop MojMeda.rs
Surely one-of-a-kind and then we can say one of the best gift shops in Belgrade is the Online shop plišani meda Moj Meda (My Teddy Bear/Plišani meda). Don’t miss one of the most original gift shops you’ll ever come across in Belgrade. As the name suggests, this unusual store sells teddy bears, but these are not just your usual tiny lap cubs. They have giant teddy bears that stand 2 meters tall (plišani meda od 2 metra), which is the biggest one in the category of big teddy bears (veliki plišani meda). But the one that caught our eye first was his somewhat smaller cousin, plišani meda od 170 cm, which we believe is their best product. If you want something smaller still, they have a category called srednji plišani meda, where you can find fuzzy friends from 100cm to 130 cm tall. And, of course, the small teddy bear (mali plišani meda) we all know and love is on their website as well, because nothing beats the classics. Made in Serbia, these bears are high quality, soft and warm, so they are perfect hug buddies, and a great gift idea.
