Where to find the most unique gifts in Tel Aviv

One of the most satisfying feelings is scoring a gift for someone that you just know is going to be a winner. While Tel Aviv is rife with awesome indie fashion designers hawking stellar gift options, if clothes are not exactly what you're after, be sure to check out the local bounty of Israeli jewelry designers and, of course, Israel's markets, where you'll find flea market treasures and regional delicacies from olive oil to tehina and silan (date honey). Our ultimate guide to Neve Tzedek or a stroll down Shenkin Street will undoubtedly unleash a multitude of options as well. But for those seeking extra-thoughtful presents (think the latest Israeli cookbook for your foodie friends or Japanese cotton socks for your boyfriend's safta) these beautiful shops have something for all tastes, styles and homes.

The Israeli shopping scene is more than just big-name shopping mall chains and a network of manic markets. Though your guidebook will surely direct you towards Mahane Yehuda or the infamous Dizengoff center, what it won’t tell you about is the up-and-coming community of Israeli jewelry designers bursting onto the scene.
