7 Unique Gifts To Take Home From Dubai
Updated on 08 May 2017

It's time to go home after a fabulous few days in Dubai, and it would be wrong to do so without some souvenirs. Ditch the magnets and keychains for something cuter and quirkier. After all, there are more interesting ways to remember your holidays here.

Here are seven of them:

1. #MyDubai clutch

Dhs 1,650, S*uce

Les Bois de Perle takes the popular Instagram hashtag to its wooden box clutch. The text and heart (on the other side of the clutch) are designed in mother of pearl.

2. The Burj Khalifa soap

Dhs 95, The Shower Tower Company

Perfect as a souvenir, the 'soapenir' pays tribute to the iconic tower. The lather will keep your skin smoothe, while the lavender scent leaves you smelling fresh.

3. Desert Memories Billionaire Dubai edition board game

Dhs 139, Virgin Megastore

Family and friends will be thoroughly entertained with this board game that lets you buy, sell and rent property to become the next Dubai billionaire. Suitable for children too.

4. Arabic text pouches

Dhs 120 to 170, Karak Memoirs (available on order - 050-7951767)

Combining Arab words with English text, these unique pouches fit your essentials, while exuding playful vibes.

5. Soap bars

Prices vary, The Camel Factory (available at Dubai Duty Free's gifts section)

A part of UAE’s heritage, camels are known as the ship of the desert. The Camel Soap Factory produces handmade soaps with camel milk. The bars feature a debossed image of a camel, also the brand's logo.

6. Dubai bangle

Dhs 330, Whistle + Bango

From the makers of postcode and country code bangles comes the Dubai edition one. It’s a champagne cream glossy enamel bangle embossed with raised gold lettering inside a gold-plated shell. This distinct piece of jewellery will shine on any wrist.

7. DXB cap

Dhs 195, Raqam.ae

This cool cap by Raqam features a  miniature aluminium embossed Dubai license plate on the front and is size adjustable.
