Tunisian gifts for large budgets
#1 A trip to Tunisia
Let’s start this list with the absolute best Tunisian gift for someone who’s obsessed with Tunisia. A trip to Tunisia of course!
Check out Skyscanner if you want to book a flight and a hotel to Tunisia or head over to Viator to book one of the cool tours or excursions. For example, one to the beautiful town of Sidi Bou Said. A picturesque blue and white coastal town near Tunis.
#2 Tunisian mezze server
This mezze server in the shape of the hand of Fatima (or hamsa), is one of the best Tunisian gifts for people’s homes.
The first thing I love about this server is that it’s handmade by artisans from Tunisia. But what’s really cool is that together the plates form the Hamsa. And as a bonus, they’re also oven-, dishwasher-, and microwave-save.
In case you are not familiar with the Hamsa, it’s a very common symbol used in Arabic countries. It stands for happiness, health, and good fortune.
#3 Tunisian drum: darbuka
A darbuka is a traditional type of drum that is often used in Arabic countries. I have also shared this gift in the Egyptian gift guide because the darbuka is also a traditional musical instrument from Egypt.
It’s a great gift idea for music lovers.
#4 Map of Tunisia
If you have checked any of the other posts on this website, you may know that I almost always include maps on my lists. Because travelers (and that includes me) simply love maps.
And I loved this map of Tunisia even more!
It’s not your regular canvas map of Tunisia, it’s a shaded relief map. This adds a whole dimension to this map. And it makes it a beautiful wall decor item.
Oh and no worries if this relief map is over your budget, you can find more Tunisia gifts for the home on this list!

#5 A tagine
Though most people associate a tagine with Morocco, it’s actually also a traditional cooking pot in Tunisia.
So if you are looking for Tunisia gifts for foodies, this is one of the best gifts!
This tagine is made from iron cast, meaning that it’s lighter than the traditional ones. And that it’s dishwasher-proof. Personally, I find the last benefit the most important of this tagine.
#6 Tunisia soccer jersey
If you are looking for Tunisian gifts for men who love sports, and more specifically soccer (or football), this is the perfect gift. It’s the official jersey of Tunisia’s national team.
#7 Tunisia jigsaw puzzle
For Tunisian gifts for puzzle lovers, this jigsaw puzzle of Sidi Bou Sai is the perfect gift!

#8 Handmade Tunisian cheese plates
Looking for the cheesiest gift for someone who adores Tunisia? Look no further than these gorgeous handmade ceramic cheese boards straight from the heart of the country!
These artisanal boards are crafted with love and a sprinkle of Tunisian magic. Not only will your cheese-loving friend get to display their favorite fromage with style, but they’ll also have a unique conversation starter at their next dinner party.
#9 Sidi Bou Said wall art
The beautiful city of Sidi Bou Said is one of the most popular places to visit in Tunisia. So if you are looking for gifts for someone who loves the picturesque blue and white town, this set of three panels is the perfect gift.
Tunisian gifts for mid-budgets
#10 Tunisia-themed gifts: socks
These socks with the flag of Tunisia in hearts are one of my favorite Tunisia gifts for travelers.
Socks are one of those essential items for travelers. So if you are looking for gifts that travelers will actually take on a trip, these socks are perfect.
#11 Tunisia-themed passport cover
For practical Tunisia-themed gifts, this red carpet passport cover is the perfect gift. It will keep the recipient’s most important document safe and it reminds them of their favorite country.
Short background about carpets from Tunisia.
The carpet weaving industry dates back to before Christ and they’ve not stopped producing rugs in Tunisia since. And that makes this passport cover a great Tunisia-themed gift.
But if you prefer different Tunisia-themed passport covers, check out Zazzle.
#12 Tunisian gifts for spicy food lovers: harissa
Harissa is a chili sauce or paste that originated in Tunisia. It contains roasted red peppers (of course), garlic, citrus, cumin, cilantro, and some more spices.
It’s a great gift for people who love spicy food!

#15 Tunisia travel guides
Greater than a tourist: Tunis, Tunisia
This is one of the best Tunisian gifts for someone who is only going to visit Tunis. The book includes 50 unique tips from a local living in Tunis.

#17 Books about Tunisia
Tunisia: An Arab anomaly
This book takes the reader on a journey through Tunisia’s fascinating history of reforms in education, religion, and women’s rights, during and after the Arab Spring.
A Tunisian tale by Hassouma Mosbahi
This is a fascinating psychological novel that was translated into English. It is set in Tunis and takes the reader through societal taboos and the main characters’ minds.
The Tremor of Forgery by Patricia Highsmith
This is another novel set in Tunisia. It’s a psychological thriller about an American in Tunisia.
#18 Tunisia-themed tote bag
Another one of my favorite gifts for just about anyone is a tote bag. They are small, cute, and practical. And the best thing about tote bags is that you can find them in every theme you want!
So if you are looking for small, cute, and practical Tunisia gifts head over to Zazzle and check out the 82 different designs.
Or if you know that the recipient loves Tunis, go for the tote bag with the skyline of Tunis.
#19 Tunisian cooking class
This is another one of the best Tunisia gifts for foodies, a Tunisian cooking class.
The class teaches how to make a Tunisian lablebi (a chickpea dish) in just 30 minutes!
Tunisian gifts for small budgets
#20 Vintage map of Tunis
This is another one of the great Tunisia gifts for the home. The vintage-looking map is perfect for people who love Tunis and who love vintage of course!
#21 Tunisian Arabic course
Tunisian Arabic language courses are the best Tunisia gifts for people who would love to be able to communicate with Tunisians in their mother tongue.
Arabic is the official language of Tunisia, but they speak Tunisian Arabic (or Tunisian Derja), and it is quite different from standard Arabic. So it’s definitely recommended to gift a Tunisian Arabic course, rather than a general Arabic course to someone who loves Tunisia.
And the conversational Tunisian Arabic book on Amazon is perfect for that!
As you probably already guessed, this book is for people who want to be able to have small and easy conversations. The book does not include Arabic letters, so they will not learn how to read Arabic, but only how to speak it. Another thing to consider is that the book doesn’t include CDs or other audio options. So it will only work for people who are familiar with the pronunciation of Tunisian Arabic.
#22 Tunisia travel poster
If you liked the idea of giving Tunisian gifts for the home, but the map (#4) was over your budget, this travel poster is a good alternative!
The posters are A3 size and instead of paper, they are made from fabric-like material. This makes it more durable and it looks even better.
#23 More Tunisia-themed gifts: luggage tag
There are 21 different Tunisia-themed luggage tags on Zazzle. I quite liked the one with the Tunisian airport stamps, but you can also find them with flags, maps, or the rug (like the passport cover)
#24 Tunisian gifts for her: necklace
If you are looking for small and cute Tunisian gifts for her, this necklace is the perfect gift. It’s shaped like the map of Tunisia, it has the flag of Tunisia, and the name of the country engraved on it.
#25 Tunisia-themed shirt
Get ready to rock your friend’s wardrobe with a Tunisian-themed shirt that’s as vibrant as a bowl of harissa! This fun gift will have them flaunting their Tunisian pride in a way that screams, “I’m Tunisian and I know it!” You can find all sorts of designs on Etsy, such as this cute but simple one to spread Tunisian love wherever they go.
