Default best mall for pressies?

Hi all,

Which mall is the best for buying tourist pressies, I'm after an emirates polo shirt ( decent quality), some Jamil and Jamila dolls, something camel shaped, salt and pepper dish dash/abaya pots, maybe some nice dates etc.

anyone pressie suggestions? and where can I go to get it all?

Cheers

For the dates. any supermarket will have them and for the gifts, forget the malls and go to the Antiques Museum. Not a museum and doesn't sell antiques, but you'll get all your gifts at far better prices than in the malls.

Skip the malls.

Head down Sheikh Zayed. Make three or four wrong turns.

End up in Karama.

Everything you want is to be found in the fake souks in Karama at 1/10000th the prices at Dubai Mall or MoE.
