United Nations Association International Gift Shop

Come, Shop The World in Balboa Park!

Promote the work of the United Nations—and pick up special gifts for your friends and family. When you shop at the United Nations International Gift Shop, you support the peaceful coexistence and cooperation among all the peoples of the world. You’ll find unique, handcrafted items from countries such as Africa, Latin American, Poland, Russia, and Scandinavia, including:


We also offer a collection of books—from cookbooks to children’s books— that are international in flavor and provide a window into another culture.

If you are unsure which piece of jewelry to get your sister or which CD your five-year-old would enjoy, just ask our international, bilingual staff. Joan, our Gift Shop Manager, as well as Winnie, Joan's sister, would be happy to chat with you about our items in Danish. If you are from the Philippines, seek out Josie, who can answer your questions in Tagalog, and Graciela our Spanish speaking associate.

Don’t forget to bring your UNA membership card to receive a 20% discount on most items. Please note, every Monday we offer 10% discount all day to every customer.
