Souvenirs: The Czech Republic produces garnet jewelry, so if you like dark red stones, look for that. Also glassware. For co-workers and the like, there are these crisp wafflely cookies, kind of like a cross between pizzelles and sugar wafers. Since you've never been to Europe before, I should mention something called the VAT -- Value Added Tax, I think. If you buy expensive stuff like garnet jewelry, the store should give you a form. Save it and your receipt, then when you leave the country, you can apply to get the VAT refunded. Since the VAT is something like 15 or 20 percent, it adds up.
