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:

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.
