When I'm in a new City, I try to find something unique gift-wise to take back with me. I'm not big on Tourist schlock, and tend to gravitate to the work of local artists, including photography.
I was lucky to stubble upon Fótógrafí during my many Reykjavik rambles and was immediately drawn in. Ari Sigvaldason's gallery sells work by over 40 Icelandic photographers, from newspaper staff reporters to landscape specialists. You can buy fine-art prints, posters, and photo books, or just admire the art. I ended up with his newest collection (Shot in Reykjavik), which included a bonus print, the pleasure of meeting him and having the book signed. I later went back and picked up an impressive Photo Book (Moments From Iceland) by Johannes Frank (also signed) and went home a happy Man.Recommended for:

Good spot. Have to check it out. It shows what the locals are up to. Most things that involve any kind of shopping seem like a waste to me on vacation. There are a few exceptions, and this is one of them.
