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 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. (Check #11, #13, and #19 for more gifts for foodies).
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.
#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 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. They are also oven, dishwasher, and microwave save. But what’s also cool is that together the plates form the Hamsa.
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.
#5 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, check out #9, 21, and 25 for more Tunisia gifts for the home.

#10 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. With the Greeks mentioning the tapestries of Carthage. 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.
#11 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!
#12 Tunisia-themed gifts: socks
These socks with the flag of Tunisia in hearts are one of my favorite Tunisia gifts for travelers.

#15 Tunisia travel guides
If you’ve seen some of my other destination guides, you will know that I always include guidebooks as one of the gifts. Because guidebooks are the perfect gift for people who are traveling to a certain destination.
But for some reason, all my favorite publishers (Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Bradt guide etc) have not published any recent travel guide about Tunisia. They all date back to 2016 or older.
And six years is already outdated for a travel guide. So I selected two different guidebooks for you today.
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.
Culture smart: Tunisia
The essential guide to customs and culture in Tunisia is the perfect book for people who love to learn more about Tunisia’s culture.
#16 Tunisia-themed water bottle
If you are looking for practical and sustainable Tunisian gifts for travelers, this water bottle with the map of Tunisia is the perfect gift.
Stainless steel water bottles are great gifts for sustainable travelers. Travelers can reuse their bottles instead of buying plastic ones.
If you don’t like the map design, head over to Zazzle and pick one of the other designs they offer.
#17 Books about Tunisia
Meeting the Fox by Orr Kelly
This is one of the best Tunisian gifts for someone who is interested in history. And more specifically, world war 2 in North Africa.
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 travelers are tote bags. 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.
Tunisian gifts for small budgets
#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!
#20 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.
There are two options you can go for.
First, there is the conversational Tunisian Arabic book on Amazon. And 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.
The second option is an online course from Udemy. This course covers the true basics. Such as how to greet or say thank you. Obviously, it includes videos that will make it easier to practice the right pronunciation.
#21 Tunisia travel poster
If you liked the idea of giving Tunisian gifts for the home, but the map (#5) 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 look even better.
#22 More Tunisia-themed gifts: luggage tag
There are 21 different Tunisia-themed luggage tags on Zazzle. I quite liked the one with the typical blue and white houses in Sidi Bou Sai, but you can also find them with flags, maps, or the rug (like the passport cover #10)
#23 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.
#24 Tunisia travel journal
Are you struggling to decide which gift you should get?
You can always go for a travel journal. Essentially, you can never go wrong with a journal, making them one of the all-time favorite gifts for travelers.
But if you want to make this gift slightly more personal, you should get a travel journal that is specifically designed for people traveling to Tunisia.
They can write throughout their vacation in Tunisia, and once they get back home, they will have a cute memory book of Tunisia for the rest of their life.
#25 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!
