Well, there are quite some things considered Swiss, are you talking about food? Handcrafts? Anything?
I'll try to give you a selection of things I consider Swiss and recommendable.
In Basel itself there is a speciality called "Basler Leckerli", which is a special sort of biscuit with nuts and spices, comparable, but not identical to gingerbread biscuits.

Chocolate is for sure a speciality of Switzerland, there's various famous brands, like e.g. Lindt, Teuscher, Frey and Läderach, whereas Läderach is MY absolut favourite.
Cheese is very popular, e.g. Emmental, Gruyère, etc.
You might want to look at the Swiss Snack Box offered in below link, a nice offer to enjoy local food throughout Switzerland:

When talking about handcrafts cowbells are also a popular and typical souvenir to buy from Switzerland. They are available at most souvenir stores in various sizes.
Also the Swiss Army Knife is a popular and very practical souvenir from Switzerland.
Hope this provides some input. Maybe other members have more ideas too.
If you were talking about something totally different feel free to get back to us anytime.
