Egyptian perfumes are available in this store. They call it Essences of Flower Perfumes. They have a variety of essences and you will find the list on one of the photos I posted. The perfumes smell good and the price is a skyrocket. I bought a bottle of Lotus Flower perfume. The size of which is a little bigger than a nail polish bottle. You know how much I paid? 50 Egyptian Pounds.
You will find this store near the Pyramids of Giza. I posted their telephone here. Call them to get direction. You may try it. The perfume stays longer.
What to buy: Essences of Different Flowers
What to pay: From 50 to 200 Egyptian Pounds

It's a nice shop where you can find out all about how perfumes are made, how to make a difference between male and female perfumes and choose your own perfume.
What to pay: The perfume is sold in special bottles. The price of the perfume depends on the size of the bottle. If you buy 4, you'll get 1 free together with a present of the owner's choice.

You want to buy a papyrus print? No problem! Every guided excursion leads to a papyrus shop. You may listen to the lecture about how a papurus print is producing. After that dealers will offer you a lot of things from 50LE ($10) till .... But I wouldn't advise you to buy a papirus here. There are a plenty of other places wher you can do it for another price. I quite agree with Michael who suggested to buy it even in Germany!

There are a lot of souvenir shops around the Plateau of Giza. Local dealers offer many fine but useless things. Usually they start to bargain from the sum, which is in several times more than the final price. Then they considerably reduce the initial sum, leading it up to symbolical. If you really need the offered subject you can buy it for very few money. But do it only after the dealer has completely lost the interest to you. Otherwise you can overpay in several times.

near the entrance to the sphinx you will find a lot of children selling postcards.
they're much cheaper than the ones in the bookshop by the museum, only 5 pounds for about 10 postcards.
just buy the postcards, you're helping the children too...

Our personal guide took us to one of these shops (where I assume she would have received a commission if we would have bought anything). They claim to offer you the same fragments which they sell to large and famous fashion houses all around the world who sell their scents under a different brand-name. I'm always suspicious about such things, so we didn't buy anything in the end.
But they sit you down, give you a tea and show every fragment one by one. When I clearly stated that we are interested in the history of these fragments and such, but we are not going to buy anything, the girl smiled and said "no problem if you don't buy anything" and in about 20 seconds she was gone from our table...
What to buy: It's up to you whether if you want to buy some Egyptian perfumes which are told to be the same as the famous brandnames, in very nice little bottles (those are really nice indeed).

It is not really a shop, but another place where they try to sell STUFF to the tourists. When you are visiting the Pyramids, you will surely go to the lookout point behind them, from where a great view opens up. Now this is the place, where around the inofficial parking lot, the locals put out their stuff on carpets and try to sell everything what they have.
I didn't stop, so I'm no familiar with the prices and with all the goods available, but I'm sure that it's not the cheapest place in town and all typical gifts/souvenirs can be found among the displayed things on the carpets.
What to buy: All local crafts, gifts, souvenir type of things.
What to pay: Probably more than if you would go to one of the markets in Cairo.

Address: Pyramids lookout
At the Obsrvation Point there are a number of stalls with the typical souvenirs found all over Egypt- carved busts, miniature pyramids, hookah pipes, Arab head-dress etc.
Some of the carvings are pretty crude though..
What to buy: However, we found that after haggling we could get a good bargain- a set of pyramids for a few dollars make a nice memento for children.
What to pay: a s little as you can , if you are clever.
