A trip in Morocco might be a little short to learn about this country thoroughly, but it is long enough for you to pick up a couple of favorite souvenirs or local products that can bring you back fond memories of this beautiful land.

Here are some shopping items that you definitely don’t want to miss.

Argan oil

Locals used argan oil as an antioxidant and a daily moisturizer for skin dating back to the 1st century AD. Today, it is a product that has a long-standing tradition for local women. They put the oil on their body and hair so that the skin can remain smooth and tender even if they live in hot and dry deserts. Apart from being applied as cosmetic oil for skin and hair, argan oil is also sold as an ingredient for people to dip bread in at breakfast or to drizzle on couscous or pasta, which is believed to be a heart-healthy gourmet product. Sugar or cooking oil made of argan tree kernel enjoys great popularity among local people.

Wooden wares

Walnut woodwork with pearl-and-shell inlay shaped in an eight-petal flower and installed with a light stand exemplifies the quintessential Morocco style, gorgeous and exquisite. For wooden furniture such as chairs or sofa sets, people usually put gold color cushions with silk covers on to make the woodwork look more elegant.
