Best city for souvenir shopping? What is the local specialty

I'll be in Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Toledo and Madrid. When I go souvenir shopping, can I expect significantly better prices in any one of these cities? What is the particular souvenir specialty in Granada?

In Granada objects of "Taracea" as small boxes, made in marquetry,guitars and ceramics "Fajalauza " (in blue and green with decorative motif typical of pomegranate)

In Alhambra shop there a lot of new souvenirs, very cool.

Don't forget guitars. The best guitar-makers in the world can be found in Granada mainly in El Realejo although one of their handmade guitars would cost no less than 3,500 euro, you can also find quality guitar partially facory made in Spain for a reasonable price.

Regarding price I think that Granada will be the cheapest of those destinations. Followed by Cordoba.
