Quirky Warsaw-Inspired Everyday Objects.
1) The Palace of Culture Pepper Mill – Hellowawa
This is the perfect kitchen accessory. You’ll use it nearly every day and it will always remind you of the Warsaw Skyline. I would actually really like if they made also the salt grinder, maybe in the shape of the Złota 44?

This is a memory game. You will achieve multiple things by getting this: get a nice design object, introduce your kid to the main attractions in Warsaw, teach him/her the names of those attractions in Polish and stimulate his/her brain!
Warsaw-Related Books. Do you really know everything about the city?

10) Polish Pills. Warsaw as seen by an Expat – Fanny Vaucher
When Fanny Vaucher started her blog “Pilules Polonaises”, she didn’t know it would be a huge success. She moved from Lausanne to Warsaw and started the blog as a way to adapt to the new environment.
The blog was then turned into a very entertaining book (that every single expat should buy).
Or maybe a Priceless Experience in Warsaw?
Sometimes the best present you can ever do is to offer an experience rather than an object.
11) Book a trip to Warsaw
If you don’t currently live in Warsaw, but you’ve always wanted to visit, this is the perfect time to do it. The city is bustling with life and events. Moreover, it’s cheap, super safe, modern and dynamic, but it still retains its own authentic Slavic spirit.
12) Book one of these awesome tours in Warsaw
Whether you live in Warsaw or not, these tours are great. If you are looking for an experience to share with a group of friend or a loved one, I suggest you try the Historic Warsaw Tour on a Retro Nysa Van or the Small-Group Heritage Communism Tour in Warsaw.
