Shopping for "souvenirs" in Oslo
My favorite Norwegian boutique for quality Norwegian craftsmanship is "Heimen Husflid".
They have Norwegian national costumes, art and crafts, silk scarfs, jewelry, blankets, knitwear and modern Norwegian designs.
The products are made in Norway and often made by local artists.
Its pricy, but the products are unique and you will wear them for ever,
and the presents you bring back home will be highly appreciated by your family and friends.
If you want to bring home some typical Norwegian souvenirs
when visiting Oslo I recommend you to
stay away from the shops by the harbor and the ones around City Hall.
Most of the stuff you buy there are not Norwegian at all, and some of them are of really bad quality.
