What better way to preserve your holiday memories than carrying back small kurios? Every city is famous for its own little paraphernalia. From intricate local handicrafts to elegant candles, Nainital has it all. Indulge in some serious shopping and stuff your bags with Nainital goodies. Hit the mall and other famous shopping hubs of the city for snuggly cardigans, mufflers, beautiful eco friendly candles and wooden goods.

  • Snuggle in

    The woolens are especially knit by women from Almora, along with an array of colourful gloves and warm socks. The best place to spot some colourful woollen garb is Bhotia Bazaar. It would be best to haggle a little, as the prices are on the higher side for tourists.

  • Light up

    You can also pick up artistic candles in various shapes and sizes from the innumerable shops on the mall. The candles are a local produce of Nainital and are widely famous for their unique shape and splendour. From simple to exquisitely designed candles, you’ll find everything in these small shops.

  • Artistic delights

    If candles don’t please you much, the wooden treats certainly would. Impeccably carved, the myriad wooden shaped stuff would charm you with its intricate detailing and precision. From slender sticks to small knick knacks, these artisans will surprise you with their expertise.

From warm cardigans, elegant candles to wooden carvings, Nainital is full of abundant surprises. Be it a gift or fond memory, these wonderful souvenirs give you your own little Nainital.
