The Incredible Crete Gift Box includes:

✻ Karteraki Green Mountain Tea: 

Based on the traditional Cretan recipes and the unique quality of Cretan aromatic herbs, Green Tea, Dictamnus and Thyme, selected by specialized food experts, KARTERAKI is packed in 10 teabags, which can preserve its flavor, aroma and the quality of its ingredients as they are easy to use.

✻ Olive Wood Coaster with Phaistos Disc: 

Phaistos Disk is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the island of Crete, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age (2nd millennium BC). It is covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. It features 241 tokens, comprising 45 unique signs, which were apparently made by pressing hieroglyphic "seals" into a disc of soft clay, in a clockwise sequence spiraling toward the disc's center. Its purpose and meaning remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. The original disk is on display at the archaeological museum of Heraklion. This gift box includes a coaster made from olive wood with Phaistos Disc engraved on it.

✻ Cretan Scarf “Sariki”: 

The knitted black silk headscarf is called Saríki in the Cretan dialect. It is said that its long fringes attest to the number of years of Ottoman rule in Crete and also symbolize the mourning for the victims of the uprising against the Turks in Arkadi monastery in 1866. The black Saríki emphasizes the masculinity and the pride of the wearer. In weddings, the white version of this headgear is expected to be worn on the shoulders of the groom, his close family male members as well as the koumbaroi (maid of honour and best man). 

✻ Candia di Creta Mug:

A unique ceramic mug with a vintage map of Crete that includes the most exotic Cretan beaches for your next visit. Choose your spot now!

✻ Traditional Greek Spirit “Rakomelo”:

Rakomelo is made by combining raki, from two types of grape pomace, with honey and several spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, or other regional herbs. It is produced in Crete and other islands of the Aegean Sea, and mostly consumed during the winter as a warm drink. It comes in a 50ml glass bottle and a round paper cylinder box.

✻ Lucky Eye Bracelet

Blue charms shaped like eyes worn on a necklace or a bracelet “reflect” the evil. The lucky eye is the most commonly talked about ancient tradition in the Greek Isles. Celebrate life with this handmade lucky eye bracelet!
