Made in UAE Gifts

May 15, 2018 | Inspire

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.

Editor’s pick of Made in UAE gifting brands…

Crowd pleasers

Whether you have a stunning gold foil art print, a fun engraved kitchen board or a cute accessory in mind, Little Majlis’ local talent is sure to have just the thing. A gift for the home is a gift the whole family can enjoy and can also be quite practical too.

Small trinkets

So often, the best things come in small packages and when you’re about to hop on a plane, size does matter. If there’s travel involved, avoid the extra baggage and shop the small things. UAE coin cuffliks and personalised necklaces are just a few of our best-sellers.


Specially for the kids

Admittedly, children may not understand the significance of where a gift is made but you can certainly give them a taster of the UAE, a sense of place. Think cute homewares, slogan tees, toys, craft kits and art prints.

Give a local book. You might be surprised to hear that there are some fabulous children’s books penned right here in UAE…

Little Majlis’ own gift and souvenir collection is predominently made here in the United Arab Emirates. Take a look at what Little Majlis’ Anna & Annabelle had to say about shopping local in the BBC’s storyworks feature on Little Majlis…
