Gift shopping is high on most traveler's to-do lists when visiting a new destination. Well-made, local products not only remind people about the trip they had, but also make great gifts to bring home to share with friends and relatives.
MyCityGiftShopping presents a list of original, locally made products that are perfect for travelers to take home as gifts. No more mass produced, cheap souvenirs, such as T-shirts, mugs, hats, refrigerator stickers, etc. All the gift ideas featured in this app are carefully selected by local experts to represent the local tradition and culture. Additionally, the application features stores and marketplaces where the gifts can be found.
This iPhone application is a mobile companion of the web-based MyCityGiftShopping.org, a Wiki project. The gift ideas are provided by contributors from around the world. The app is designed to work offline. No data plan and no roaming is needed when traveling abroad.
