Is this what comes to mind when you think about a Moroccan Christmas?
As much as I love Andy and his musical genius , I know there’s much more to be said for Moroccan Merriment, and there are true Moroccan treasures out there for Christmas gift hunters. For starters, there’s the sensual Spice Route print collection from Saffron Marigold… High quality, 100% cotton, hand printed, fair trade – how could you go wrong? (More in this series at the end of the post.)
1. Black Leather Moroccan Pouf. Extra seating, a footrest, a pillow, you name it – a pouf is a functional beauty. This leather, hand embroidered specimen from Morocco is really heirloom quality furniture. ($249, Mosaik)
2. Handmade Moroccan Salad Bowl. The only trouble with these brilliant hand carved and painted salad bowls is that one would be hard pressed to cover them up with lettuce! From Morocco. ($42 each, Casbah Decor)
3. Emil Henry Flame Top Clay Tagine. This French made tagine has received top marks from testers at Sur la Table, and can be used on gas, electric or halogen stoves, then popped into the dishwasher for easy clean up. ($124.95, Sur la Table)
4. Dulcet Moroccan Cooking Spice and Rub. Moroccan food this Christmas? Make it simpler with this savory sweet spice blend from Dulcet. No one ever has to know you had help… ($6.99, ranchmarketsnapavalley.com)
As promised, more from Saffron Marigold’s Spice Route collection- table linens, bedding, curtains, shower curtains and cushions are all available in this vibrant pattern. Any one of these would make a fantastic Christmas gift for the extra-ordinary people on your list. You can read about our entire Moroccan Collection here.
