Made in UAE Gifts
It’s that time of the year. Summer is just around the corner and plans are being plotted.
Gift shopping is an integral part of getting ready for the Summer exodus, whether you’re celebrating the Holy Month, sending a thanks to teachers for their hard work over the past year, farewelling friends who are moving abroad or shopping for authentic souvenirs to gift in your home country over the holidays.
If you ask us, giving a gift that’s made right here in the United Arab Emirates is essential. A gift with meaning and a story to tell. A keepsake.
