10 Unique Lebanese Souvenirs You Need to Take Abroad

If you’re visiting Lebanon anytime soon, you know that the country is a mix of several different cultures and histories. With Ancient, Roman, Ottoman and French influences, this small Mediterranean country is full of gems to take back home. Here are more than 10 unique Lebanese souvenirs to look out for.

 

 

 

 

 

Books

For a small country, the number of intellectuals and writers that have come out of Lebanon is staggering. It seems that every couple of years a Lebanese citizen or resident is recognized for a unique (and often controversial) publication. The country’s history of war and social strife has made for interesting stories to tell. From Khalil Gibran to Rawi Hage, there are many books worth picking up on your next visit. Not sure where to go? Visit these independent shops or  www.fromlebwithlove.com to browse more than 1,000s of books.

Sweets

Perhaps one of the best gifts to take back home from Lebanon is food. Stores like Hallab and Douaihy have packages especially for travelers and outlets at the Beirut International Airport or by visiting www.fromlebwithlove.com

Indulge in a taste of Lebanon once you’ve left with sweet treats that’ll last a while.

Arabic Sweets 

Roasted nuts

Assorted roasted nuts are a local favorite. More often than not if you’re visiting a Lebanese home you’ll eventually find a bowl of roasted, salted nuts and seeds in front of you with a drink. Like sweets, you can easily find them prepared for travel at places like Al-Amine or Al-Rifai Roasteries or by visiting www.fromlebwithlove.com all across the country.

Roasted Cashews

Turkish Coffee Pots

Usually found in old souks like the one in Tripoli, silver home trinkets and Turkish coffee accessories are some of the most Lebanese items you could take back home. When you visit you’ll soon find that the locals love their Turkish coffee, with many drinking several pots throughout the day!

The Story behind the initiative: fromlebwithlove 

 

Suddenly everything started collapsing, although many professional economists were 

predicting it based on many scientific and economic facts. Despite all the assurances 

given from the government officials, we found our economy and everything we built 

through the years, confiscated, destroyed and somehow STOLEN. 

The Lebanese Councils of Ministers and Deputies and almost everyone who worked in 

the public sector, never allowed businesses to rely on our country’s natural resources… 

Instead, they always tried to create a dependent society in terms of trade and transit, to make the people fonder of their presence as political leaders. 

And one afternoon without any expectations, 2700 tons of Ammonium Nitrate blew in 

the port of Beirut, destroying half of the city. 

They thought this is how we get destroyed… 

We refuse to accept this fact, 

We refuse to see our people beg for bread and food, 

We refuse to let anyone decide our own fate, 

We love life… 

We are simply Lebanese… 

We are innovative, creative, funny… 

We are workers, innovators, engineers, farmers, gardeners, architects, fashion designers 

… 

We will help small businesses through selling their products, 

By looking around us, we noticed that the answer to the crisis has two big pillars: 

The Lebanese Citizen 

The Lebanese Foreigner 

..And we figured out a way to sell Lebanese products all over the world with Love And 

From All the pain the Lebanese people lived!
