Best Things to Bring Home from Doha -The hows and wheres

Everybody loves to bring back lasting memories from their trips aboard and the most common way to do so is buying souvenirs from the country you visited, be it traditional items or antiques.

1

Jewellery

Qatar is one of the best places in the world to shop for pearls and you can find many shops that are adorned with jewellery made of pearls of every colour imaginable. These items aren't as expensive as you might expect and make great gifts for the loved ones back home. Even if you buy 10 of this, it won't make a huge difference by weighing down your luggage, so Yay!

2

Spices

Some countries are unique when it comes to the spices and ingredients they use when making their food and Qatar is such a place. The enticing aroma that hits you as soon as you walk into a spice market is divine and unmatched. From cardamom to saffron, cinnamon, chillies, and masala, you will find a variety of powders that will help make your cooking exciting. It's lightweight and doesn't require much space, but make sure you wrap it tight when packing it along with your clothes.

Fabrics

Readymade clothes aren't the orthodox way to shop in Doha, buying material and making clothes is what they do. You can choose from a large variety of material, colours, and prints in any part of the city and can get it stitched there or take it back home.

Pashminas and Shawls

Pashminas are a life saver and every girl needs one. This handy item looks gorgeous with any outfit and comes in different colours with intricate designs on it. Compared to the other parts of the world, the pashminas in Qatar are quite cheap.

Pretty wooden boxes

Traditional souvenirs that speak of the country's rich history and culture are the best of all and these gorgeous wooden boxes do that. Reminding you of dainty princesses who might have used similar boxes to store their royal gems in, these boxes come in all shapes and sizes and are very useful. The best part is they look great on any dressing table. You might be tempted to hoard a lot of souvenirs from day one on your trip to Doha but let's face it, there's only so much that you can store at one of the Doha service apartments you stay at, even if it is roomy like the Somerset West Bay Doha.

Dried fruits and nuts

Obviously, the first thing that comes to your mind is dates, and you are on point there. The best quality dates can be found in Qatar, along with pistachios, peanuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds and all types of dried fruits. Also, the dates come in different flavours, all of them aren't sweet and when purchasing these fruits, you can tell the shopkeeper your preferred flavour, even if it is sour dates!
