Travel Souvenirs from Around the World: Dubai, UAE

Finding a genuine souvenir from Dubai is no easy task. Most objects that caught our attention were either made elsewhere in the world or ones we already owned from previous travels to the Middle East. We purchased a selection of Al Nassma Camel Milk chocolates but they wouldn’t have a permanent place in our travel souvenir cabinet.

I searched for something authentic or cute-kitsch that would not take up much room in our inflated luggage. And I found it.

You might think that a painted wooden camel is the epitome of a souvenir from Dubai. It can be. But look closer. The carpet from Al Jaber Gallery in the Arabian Souk of Mall of the Emirates is an Arabian Computer Mouse Pad. Complete with tassels and rubber backing, it’s a gift that is guaranteed to bring a smile to a travel geek.

Previous Travel Souvenirs from Around the World: Tokyo, Seoul, Jbeil, Big Island of Hawaii, , Provence, Tahiti, Montmartre/Paris.
