For buying souvenirs from Pris I recommend also trying the ambulant shoppers findable all over the capital's streets, even on the famous Champs d'Elysees. What is the gain? You can negotiate a really good price, for the souvenirs, as they are willing to drop their prices really quick. For example we bought 5 towers that illuminate for only 10 euros. A bargain!
