Christmas Shopping in Kaunas’2018

A fair or two will be held every weekend of December!

The official opening of the Christmas season in Kaunas is scheduled for December 1st – that’s when the Christmas tree will be lit, and the festive market will open at the Town Hall Square. Planning a trip to Kaunas around that time? Perfect. Why not combine sightseeing and tackling the Christmas lists of your beloved ones? Here are some of the best gift and fashion fairs planned this year.

December 2nd, 11 am – 7 pm
Numan restaurant, Nemuno g. 43

One of the most exclusive and yet public events this month is the get-together at Numan, one of the most delightful restaurants in Kaunas. Most of the selected brands are not available in Kaunas. Imagine imperfectly perfect cups for your morning coffee and stationery sets for your love letters. With a cocktail on top.


December 8th – 9th, 11 am – 7 pm

M. Žilinskas Gallery of Art, Nepriklausomybės a. 12

The team at POP-UP are known for the hippest fashion fairs in Lithuania. The location’s spectacular, too – the gallery itself and its permanent and temporary exhibitions are worth a couple of hours of your time (here’s our recent blog entry about it). Shopaholics will be able to satisfy their style hunger with the juiciest and hottest fashion statements from Lithuania, as well as matching accessories, jewellery and beyond. Don’t forget to buy something for your friends, too!

December 8th – 9th, 11 am – 8 pm 
 Kaunas Garrison Officers’ Club, A. Mickevičiaus g. 19

This is where the Lithuanian President used to celebrate the New Year 80 years ago! The historic building will be filled with good vibes for two full days in December. Expect dozens of talented craftsmen presenting their own production – you won’t find most of the stuff anywhere else! Vegetarian food items and desserts will also be offered, as well as workshops for those who want to make the gifts with their own hands. No stress!

December 7th – 8th, 10 am – 7 pm
PC Molas, K. Baršausko g. 66A

Known for some of the best outlets in Kaunas, the mall located a stone’s throw from the KTU campus has planned something special this December. For two days, it will convert to a busy Christmas market full of home décor items, toys, books, jewellery, accessories, clothes, makeup etc. Workshops and lectures are also in the programme, as well as a special charity event aimed at families in need.

December 14th – 16th, 12 pm – 7 pm 
BOBO gallery, Gedimino g. 46 

A pop-up Christmas shop in a brand-new gallery? Sounds perfect. The gallery itself promises fashion, lifestyle and art for bourgeois bohemians, and the pop-up fair will offer apparel, perfumed candles, home decorations, delicacies and other gifts for him, her and the babies. 


December 14th – 16th, 10 am – 10 pm 

Mega, Islandijos pl. 32

Mega mall is already one of the best options for shopaholics of all ages and sizes, and the Christmas fashion market – open until very late – only makes the place more special. Convenient, too – Mega is easily reachable from Vilnius, Klaipėda and other cities, as it’s on the main highway of Lithuania. There’s a cinema inside the mall, so treat yourself with a movie after you’re done with shopping.

December 15th, 3 pm – 8 pm

Vingiu Dubingiu pub, A. Mickevičiaus g. 35

One of the city’s greatest craft beer pubs has got many frequent visitors. A lot of them tend to be creative persons. Why not combine everything and turn a pub into a cosy Christmas market for one Saturday?

The invitation also suggests that “If the weather is fine this time Christmas market will appear as open air in our beer garden with festive hot drinks and food”. Expect leather accessories, hand pressed and drawn artworks, comics and prints, philosophy and photography books, hoodies and beyond.
