Shopping Centers/Department Stores
Even if a piercing and the new Cradle of Filth CD are top of your personal wish list, family commitments mean you'll probably be visiting one of the city's shopping malls or larger department stores at some point between now and the end of December.
Whether you're looking for gifts for family and friends, or the perfect outfit for the Christmas party season, our listing contains every mall, pasáž, and shopping emporium that matters.

Shopping malls and department stores rule when it comes to big-name brands and Western-style glitz but for authentic Bohemian knick-knacks and stocking-fillers, Prague's outdoor markets come into their own.
The granddaddy of them all, Old Town's Havelský trh, is perhaps the best place to find items like wooden toys, marionettes, lace and medovina (mead). At other Prague markets, the offerings are less traditional and more tacky - but occasionally fun.

The PTV Prague Directory's selection of clothing stores should be able to help you locate anything from a snowboarding jacket to sexy underwear.
Whether you're buying clothes for a loved one or choosing a new outfit for the Christmas party season, our selection of shops runs from discount to designer, and everything in between.

Music makes an ideal gift, but while some of the names on your list might be satisfied with the mainstream megastores' offerings - not everyone's an O-Zone fan, after all - it helps to know where to find Prague's specialty stores..
Whether you're looking for Leoš Janáček, Lil John, Laco Deczi, Lydia Lunch or Lucie Bílá, we know where to go.

It's not the true meaning of Christmas, perhaps, but the thrill you get from unwrapping a shiny new electronic gizmo is hard to beat.
For assorted mobile phones, game consoles, televisions, stereos, DVD players and whatever else the white-jacketed boffins of the Far East have dreamed up for your Yuletide gratification, visit our consumer electronics listings.

Keep kids of all ages happy this Christmas with - you guessed it - toys, toys and more toys.
For uniquely Czech gifts such as likenesses of TV's much-loved Večerníček characters or the latest flavor-of-the-month doodads, our listing of Prague toy stores will help you light up someone's eyes (and lighten your wallet).
