It’s that time of the year again where the sun needs some beer to mellow down and the beaches call your name. And so we head out to Goa for a much-needed vacation. All is fun and games till you remember that you need to bring something back as proof of your visit. Yes, you can grab a weekly supply of chorizo from Mapusa Market and call it a day. Of course, there are tons of places selling the same old sea shell mirrors, dreamcatchers, beaded jewellery and more. But if you believe in gifts that will last and serve you well at home, we’ve got you. Here’s a list of stores to hit up for unique souvenirs for loved ones. Or even for yourself!
