Christmas Shopping in Marrakech


It’s that time of year again. So how does the ultimate Christmas shopping trip to Marrakech sound? The city is packed with places to find beautiful – and unique – gifts for your loved ones. So book a flight, get together some friends and do a whistle stop tour of Marrakech together. 


To help you find what you want to shop, here’s our rundown of our favourite places. We’ve covered the three key areas of town and you can do one each day. So book a three-night trip with us, bring an empty suitcase, we’ll organise your transport around the city whilst you get Christmas sorted.




There’s one shop where you’ll find an edit of all the best homeware, fashion and accessories produced here in Morocco. The boutique also carries exclusive lines of some local designers and whatever you can’t pack, can be shipped home. Where? The El Fenn boutique. As part of our curated collection we stock the work of AlNour, a not-for-profit social enterprise providing a safe space to 40 women with special needs. AlNour specialise in the art of hand embroidery, and create home textiles, clothing, and accessories using only high-quality natural materials. To see more of their work, they have a boutique within the medina, not far from El Fenn.


MArrakech Shopping Guide - Medina


Spend a morning wandering the thousands of stalls filled with artisanal products in the souk. There’s everything from pottery to handbags, rugs to carved wood. You’ll also have the satisfaction of knowing you’re contributing to the local economy and supporting artisans. El Fenn is likely to inspire a new rug addiction, and if you fall under the spell then look no further than Soufiane Zarib. Their handmade Beni Moroccan rugs are handwoven by artisans in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco from 100% natural wool. Riad Stella Cadente is a newly opened concept store for the French brand specialising in unique fashion, decor and photography. Bold colours and metallics invoke a fantasy land and the new boutique should not be missed in the Medina.


Marrakech Shopping Guide - Sidi Ghanem


Pick up Meriem Nour’s impeccably cut, sculptural blouses, dresses and coats at Hanout Boutique.

Visit Topolina for flamboyant jackets, tailored trousers and maxi-totes. Or treat yourself to exquisitely embroidered bed linens and tasselled bath towels at Valerie Barkowski.



The area around the Majorelle Gardens is packed with gorgeous places to shop. Stop off at Heritage Berbere for beautiful candles, room fragrances and perfumes. Moro Marrakech is a terracotta-hued villa turned chic, community space where they sell contemporary Moroccan crafts and nearby you’ll also find  33 Rue Majorelle. It’s packed with products from up-and-coming Moroccan designers – including recycled flour sack bags and Hamimi Living’s covetable flat-pack, crocheted pendant lamps.



Over in Gueliz, Norya Ayron reimagines kaftans, gandora and jumpsuits cut from limited edition fabrics in her sleek showroom and atelier. And Lalla is the place for must-have weekend bags, handbags, toiletry bags and clutches. They also carry occasional selections of anything from jewellery to small pieces of art.

Some Slow Concept Store is full of beautiful homeware – and interesting twists on traditional artisanal products.




Maison Sarayan offers a splashy vision of Morocco’s design future in a series of colour-coded themes: brass jewellery boxes inlaid with semi-precious stones, bone and resin murals with a 70s vibe and turquoise super-size pottery.


Indulge your inner table scaper in the form of hand-carved pottery inlaid with gold, or natty stripes at Chabi Chic. Or visit the studio showroom of artist Laurence Leenaert. Her LRNCE brand straddles the world between artist and craftsperson with her trademark ‘drawn’ media that spans ceramics, blankets and clothing. 



Hassan Hajjaj’s newest outpost, Jajjah showcases the work of the up-and-coming artists he’s mentoring as well as housing a shop for his own limited edition works and a jewel-box tea room. Next door, My Fine Food is the place to stock up on locally blended teas, freshly roasted coffees and cute little snack packs to take back home. And if you want to take home the El Fenn look, then Bazar Du Sud is one of our favourite makers of handmade rugs. They will ship to your home if it doesn’t fit in your suitcase.



Come back to El Fenn to eat, drink and relax. Throughout December we will have regular yoga classes for you to join in the orange courtyard. We will also host healing sound baths on a Sunday night. Enjoy authentic Moroccan cuisine in our new Colonnade Cafe amongst the twinkling lanterns and olive trees and see the incredible Hassan Hajjaj installation lit up by night. And why not book in for a few relaxing treatments in the spa. You will leave rested, refreshed –  and have got your Christmas covered.
