What better way to commemorate your MedSailors Turkey sailing trip than by treating yourself and your loved ones back home to something wonderful?

Keepsakes from Turkey sailing tours - Remember your MedSailors experience

Ward Off Bad Luck with The Evil Eye

Used to repel bad luck, you’ll find the Evil Eye incorporated into a variety of objects from keyrings and jewellery to bookmarks, trinkets and home décor. And no, the evil eye isn’t just a gimmick used to lure tourists into buying more souvenirs, it’s often gifted to newborn babies and seen within many Turkish homes.

Admire Anything Copper on Your MedSailors Turkey Adventure

Copper has been popular in Turkey for centuries and a beautifully made set of copper spoons, some cups or an elegant coffee pot is an investment that will last you a lifetime. The finest examples may be on the pricey side, but you’ll be buying a piece of authentic Turkish artisanship that you can look at every day to be reminded of your sailing adventure of a lifetime.

Spectacular Turkish Spices

One for every budding chef, you’ll often find Turkish spices packaged inside beautifully designed boxes and containers, making them the perfect souvenir or gift for someone back home.

Fall in Love with Turkish Tea and Coffee on your Sailing Trip

Turkish tea and coffee are both very strong and quite different to what we’re used to back home, but if you happen to fall in love with the taste on your Turkish adventure, stocking up before heading home will be one of the best decisions you’ll make.

Turkish Delight and Baklava are Ideal Sweet Treats

Well, we couldn’t not include Turkish Delight, despite how obvious it is! You’ll find beautifully packaged Turkish Delight everywhere and in a myriad of different flavours, but if it’s not quite your cup of tea then we highly recommend baklava. It might be a little trickier to transport back home, but this sticky combination of pastry, syrup and nuts is irresistible. In fact, we’d be surprised if you didn’t dip into your souvenir stash on your journey home tbh!
