Alabaster: For those who are looking for authentic souvenirs, the alabaster factory is the perfect place to start.

The art of sculpting and carving has been passed down from generation to generation and the local craftsmen use the same tools as their ancient ancestors. Here you can find alabaster vases, lamps, Egyptian sculptures and much more. Not only is alabaster a great souvenir, it is also a good investment for your money since the value of this mineral increases over time. Papyrus: Luxor is the home to many papyrus institutes and you will visit a papyrus workshop to see how papyrus was made in ancient times.

Perfumes: Stimulate your senses at an oriental perfumery! Here extracts of a wide variety of oriental flowers are used to make exquisite, pure oil perfumes. Choose blended perfumes or pure flower essences, such as gardenia and jasmine, or papyrus and lotus flower which are exclusively available in Egypt. For aromatherapy, choose from a wide range of medicinal oil blends. Gold & silver: Egypt has always been famous for gold and silver. Gold mines are found in Nubia, in the south of Egypt. Many pieces of jewelry can be customized to your preferences and for instance, you can have your name engraved in a gold or silver cartouche or ring in ancient hieroglyphs. Or choose other jewelry items with ancient symbols, such as Key of Life (Ankh), Eye of Horus or scarab. Carpets: For a colorful and luxurious souvenir, visit a local shop with handmade carpets. Find Bedouin and Nubian kilims, carpets and rugs with various designs and made of different fabrics, such as wool and silk. Spices & herbs: In the Egyptian desert and along the Nile, many different herbs and spices can be found. For those who love drinking herbal tea, be sure not to miss the opportunity to buy hibiscus, fenugreek, caraway and anise, which all have their own medicinal values.
