Moroccan gifts for large budgets
#1 Traditional Moroccan teacups
Tea culture is huge in Morocco.
Seriously, no matter where in Morocco you are, tea is always the number one beverage. It’s an important part of Moroccan culture and there used to be all kinds of customs and etiquette on how to serve and drink tea.
Nowadays it’s not accompanied by so many etiquette rules, but it’s still served in traditional decorated cups such as these ones.
So if you are looking for traditional Moroccan gifts for tea lovers, this is these handmade cups from Morocco are exactly what you need.
And if you want to turn it into an even better gift, then a traditional teapot (#6) and Moroccan tea too!

#4 Moroccan food gifts: tagine
If you are looking for the best Moroccan food gifts, a tagine is the gift you need!
A tagine is a traditional Moroccan (and Tunisian) cooking pot that’s used to create many delicious stew-like dishes.
I know that the traditional Moroccan earthware tagines look way cooler than this cast iron one, but there are quite a few benefits to the cast iron one. The main one is that you can wash it in the dishwasher, making it a lot easier to clean. It’s also lighter and easier to carry and the meals prepared in the iron cast tagine are just as delicious as from a traditional tagine.

As I said with the teacup, Moroccan tea culture is huge. Morocco actually ranks number 6 as the country with the highest tea consumption per capita!
Moroccan tea is traditionally made in a tin, brass, aluminum, or silver teapot, such as the one from Amazon. It used to have a ceremonial function, which you can learn more about at Tea and Coffee.com. But nowadays, teapots are simply used because they are practical and look pretty.
One thing to keep in mind is that the grip is also made of brass and it can get really hot. So make sure the recipient uses a cloth when they use the teapot.
#7 Vintage map of Morocco
This vintage map of Morocco is a beautiful piece of wall art for people who love Morocco, maps, and a bit of history.
