Fantastic Holiday Souvenirs from North Africa

By Steve Alexander

If we're visiting a country for the first time, we all like to remember how good our holiday was by bringing back a few souvenirs. Sometimes we end up bringing back a load of tat though - so to ensure you come back with something amazing from North Africa, here are some of the best souvenirs to bring home.

Tunisian Art: The pretty blue and white village of Sidi Bou Said is home to one of the most unique souvenirs to bring home from Tunisia. It's a brilliant place to shop for art. Overlooking the Bay of Tunis, it has been called home by many famous artists including Paul Klee, August Macke, Louis Moillet and Saro Lo Turco.

Carpets and rugs: No surprises here; the Moroccan carpet is a much-loved traditional souvenir. The most famous variety is the Berber carpet; a handmade and hand-dyed version that comes in a rainbow selection of shades.

Olives: Coming in many flavours, gorgeous olives are exported in vast amounts from Morocco. Fill your case with the bargain vacuum packs you'll find in most medinas and market stalls and be sure to look out for zingy-fresh lemon ones.

Woodwork: Morocco is famed for its woodwork, particularly the Thuya wood that comes from the coastal town of Essaouira. This beautifully scented wood is often adorned with intricate gold and silver detailing and you'll find lots of smaller suitcase friendly items available such as bowls, boxes and chess sets.

Marketplaces and bazaars: Filled to bursting with gorgeous handicrafts such as basketwork, gold and silver jewellery, leather belts, bags and shoes, there is bound to be an old marketplace or bazaar no matter where you're staying, even if you've booked one of the many brand new all inclusive hotels. You'll be surprised how quickly a last-minute low offer can put in an appearance so be prepared to haggle in order to grab yourself a real bargain.
