The exotic Moroccan decorating expression is romantic, warm, flamboyant and comfortable. This decorating style indulges the senses in rich colours, such as flaming orange, cobalt blue and royal purple. Moroccan gift ideas should bring to mind Arabian nights, snake charmers' baskets and the scent of cinnamon. Consider all of the senses when choosing a gift. Gifts that feature the sense of sight, taste, touch or smell enhance the Moroccan gift experience.


Moroccan jewellery is always a hit for gifts to fit any occasion. Desert Sun and Nomadic necklaces are examples of Moroccan handmade jewellery pieces worn with Moroccan outfits. Moroccan beaded belts and headbands are welcome gifts. Moroccan silver jewellery made by craftsmen are highly collected, treasured mementos.

Lamps and Lanterns

Lighting is vital to Moroccan decor. Lamps and lanterns create memorable gift ideas that can be transformed into other decorating design themes later, making them gifts that last. Stained glass Moroccan lanterns, oil lamps, Arabian night lanterns, hanging candle lanterns and lighted oil fountains provide romantic soft light to boost the Moroccan ambience. Aladdin's lamp lanterns or candleholders engraved with the gift recipient's initials make for a gift that easily become a table centrepiece and conversation piece.


Candleholders always make memorable gifts for those who enjoy scents within the home. Choose bright colours or votive candleholders that feature lively mosaic patterns. Brass candleholders, candleholders with complex designs or large, heavy wooden candleholders to sit atop a chiffon or silk scarf add to Moroccan decor. Add to the candleholder gift by also giving candles with fruit or spice scents to accompany it -- such as bergamont with eucalyptus, cinnamon vanilla, amber sweet patchouli or Moroccan fig.

Dining Items

Dining items are always welcome with those who decorate with the Moroccan theme. Tea glasses, such as the orange Bahia and jewel-toned styles, bring colour and Moroccan class to the table. Classic, clear Moroccan tea glasses often feature gold designs. These are usually taller designs for everyday use or special occasions. Brass Moroccan Fez trays, cobalt blue carved serving trays and Marrakesh ceramic plates offer memorable Moroccan gift ideas for any occasion.
