Gift Shops

What couldn't be considered a gift? It depends on the person you're shopping for and the shop itself. Cheese, cigars, crystal figurines, toys - they're all give-able, and they're just a sampling of what you'll find on the lists we've put together. These Oslo shops rank among the city's top gift stores, and they're ideal stop-offs when you need a souvenir for friends and family or when you want a special remembrance of your own from a trip to Oslo.
