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

5. Soap bars

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

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.
