The Top Gift Shops in Dubai
|ADDRESS||Level 41, Emirates Towers - Sheikh Zayed Rd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4 252 6555|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Sunday 8 AM - 8 PM|
Flowershop.ae delivers quality flowers and gifts in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, and Al Ain.
We like this shop’s set of offerings. It offers some very nice gift collections for important occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, Ramadan, proms, weddings, and more.
In addition to that, the shop also provides a wide range of flower arrangements, gifts, and fruit baskets. Alternatively, if you plan to give sweets and treats, this gift shop has you covered.
You can look into their Gourmet Section, which features various sets of cupcakes and cakes, cookies and brownies, customized cakes, chocolates, gourmet nuts, and snacks. For you to get a view of the prices of their offers, here are some of them:
- Birthday collections – start at 99.99 AED
- Flower collections – start at 99.99 AED
- Ramadan gifts – start at 99.99 AED
- Customized cakes – start at 299.99 AED
However, even if the shop has a physical address, Flowershop.ae has decided to go online. This means that if you wish to buy a gift from this shop, you’ll just have to visit its official website.
We think this is a good point of convenience for people who don’t have the time to visit the store. Since all products are listed on the website, customers can immediately see if the product is available or out of stock.
The disadvantage of this is that customers will not be able to check the gifts personally, especially if they will directly send them to the receivers’ address.
Among other things, if you want the gifts to arrive on the same day, make sure to place your orders before 7 PM.
Always on time
“The best company for any kind of arrangements. Wide variety, always on time, friendly staff, fresh flowers, beautiful packing. I’m using their service for the last 3 years and highly recommending to all my friends and colleagues. Nice system of bonuses is making it even better.” – Alina Gostevskaya
“First time ordered flowers from their website. Flowers were beautiful and fresh, same as it looked online. Excellent service with on-time delivery. I’ll get back to them for next time.” – Abdul Muqueet
2. Mange Tout Gifts Trading LCC
|ADDRESS||Office 203 - Hamsa A-Block Building - Khalid Bin Waleed St - Al Karama - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4 396 6433|
E-mail: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Friday - Thursday 9 AM - 6 PM|
Saturday 9 AM - 2 PM
This gift shop has been in business since 2007. It features an excellent selection of gift hampers, flowers, cakes, and even corporate gifts.
We also like the bespoke services they offer for clients who want to avail of personalized gifts for different occasions.
Just like Flowershop.ae, you can also order gifts from Mange Tout Gifts online and through phone or live chat. The delivery charge for residents in Dubai is 30 AED.
Of course, if you plan to have the items delivered in other cities like Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, or other Emirates, the delivery charge can still vary.
Moreover, we noticed that this shop received several complaints about delayed deliveries. For this reason, this might not be the best shop choice if you’re looking for a last-minute gift delivery option.
If the gift you ordered is not available, the shop has the right to provide a replacement that they deemed equal or of greater value than what you’ve ordered.
We think this can be a dealbreaker for some customers because gifts can hold special meanings for both the buyer and the recipient. If the items are not the same as the customers expected, they might be disappointed.
Nonetheless, we can still recommend this shop to people looking for budget-friendly gift deals. You see, Mange Tout Gifts has a specific section where you can look into different deal collections and discounted items.
Would highly recommend them
“I have experienced Mangetout’s services couple of times now and have been very impressed with their consistent, timely delivery, quality of customer service, attention to detail and high quality of products. Would highly recommend them for personal as well as corporate gifting. Thank you Mangetout for truly delivering happiness.” – Maleha Jaffer
“Thank you mangetout for being a lifesaver! I had to go to someone’s home for dinner and didn’t want to go empty handed. But remembered the night before that I hadn’t bought a gift and wouldn’t have time to buy on the day. So voila! I went to the mangetout website around midnight and ordered a beautiful orchid plant which got delivered around midday. I was not expecting such a swift delivery considering I had ordered so late in the night. Super impressed with the speed and quality.” – Saima Asghar
3. Virgin Megastore
|ADDRESS||Unit SF - 016 - Financial Center Rd - Downtown Dubai - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4 325 3330|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Sunday 10 AM - 12 AM|
Virgin Megastore was first established in Dubai in 2001. Now, it has over 40 stores all around the Middle East and North America.
If you’re looking for a store that can offer you a range of lifestyle products you can give as a gift, this shop can be a safe pick. From fashion, technology, music, and entertainment-related products – Virgin Megastore is a good place to start your search.
What we like most about this shop are its storewide and online purchases deals. For example, if the item is worth 1000 AED or above, you can get it through a 3 to 12-month installment plan with 0% interest.
This is a pretty good deal, especially if you want to give a fancy gift to your loved one and don’t have enough cash with you. However, we noticed that this deal is only offered to customers with credit cards from their partner banks.
Here is a list of banks supported by Virgin Megastore:
- Emirates NBD
- Commercial Bank of Dubai
- Standard Chartered
- Arab Bank
- Sharjah Islamic Bank
Note that the only way to place an order in this store at the moment is through its website, so customers still need to go through the registration process. Fortunately, you can have the item delivered to your address for as long as it is within the UAE.
If you want to save more on delivery fees, we suggest that you look for a Virgin Megastore branch near you to pick up your order.
“They have the most awesome stores stocked with almost everything that you can think of. The staff is realy helpful and knowledgeable and their prices are right. Got my boys a PS5 at retail price whe it was unavailable anywhere in Dubai.” – Hosh Jehangir
Original and good quality
“Virgin Megastore around the Emirates are a really good place to find your tech needs, music, video games, books and more. Prices sometimes are a little higher than online purchases or other franchises, however at Virgin you can rest assured that what you buy there is original and good quality. Their customer service online and in store is outstanding. The store clerks are friendly and know the product they are selling you, they don’t push you to buy something you won’t need or that doesn’t suits what you’re looking for.” – Carla Redondo
4. Ferns N Petals
|ADDRESS||Al Asayel street Road no 318 - Al Quoz Industrial Area 4 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 56 742 7222|
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Sunday Open 24 hours|
Ferns N Petals is one of Dubai’s most easily recognized gift shops. It has been in business since 1994.
The greatest strength of this shop is its variety of offerings. Its website states that Ferns N Petals features over 10,000 gift options for different occasions.
To name a few, some of the gift options you can choose from in this shop are flowers, cakes, cushions, and plants. You can also choose from various personalized and corporate gifts.
Should this not be enough, the shop also features gift combos and bundles. These are pretty good deals because you can avail yourself of more items for a discounted price.
Some items are even 40% off their original price, so if you’d like to give gifts without burning a hole in your wallet, we suggest that you look into the Gifts on Sale section.
The shop offers same-day delivery, which is nice, especially for people who need to order gifts at the last moment. Even better, if you wish to surprise someone in a particular place and time, you can also opt for fixed-time delivery.
We’d just like to note that you should place your order before 8 PM and that it’s only available for customers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
The only downside to the store’s speedy delivery services is that there are several complaints from customers who received their cake orders in bad condition.
“I was looking for a birthday gift surprise for my brother’s girlfriend. He wanted flowers and chocolates. I was searching something like that and Ferns and petals was one of the popular pages. I checked their page and they offer variety of combinations as gifts! We ended ordering this unique Chocolate bouquet and Red Velvet cake! For these kind of pretty set-up My money spent here is worth it! They even accommodated my change of delivery address! Thank you for a great experience FNP!” – Isabel Luzon
“I would like to say if you want to send some gift to your love once this place is one of the quickest delivery. they delivered my order in 4 hours on same day. Call center and the riders are very professional and the also have reasonable rates. I am 100% satisfied and will love to use their services in future. Thank you Ferns N Petals, you made my day :)” – Adeel Javaid
5. Joi Gifts
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4 586 8714|
E-mail: [email protected]
|OPERATING HOURS||Monday - Sunday Open 24 hours|
Joi Gifts is one of the largest and full-scale online gift shops in the Middle East and North Africa.
What we like most about Joi Gifts are its affordable gift ideas. If you compare the prices of its offerings to the items offered by other entries on this list, we can say that this shop is filled with budget-friendly finds.
In addition to that, if you want to avail of additional discounts or monthly promos, you can download the shop’s mobile application. Through this, you will be notified if the store is launching a promotional campaign.
Aside from the usual flowers and chocolates, you can also purchase a Singing Telegram. We think this is a nice gift choice for certain occasions such as Mother’s Day, birthdays, and anniversaries.
Nonetheless, if you wish to give something unique to your loved ones, we recommend that you check out the Experience Gifts section. In this section, you can schedule a nice dinner at some fancy restaurant or book a tour package at one of the most popular destinations in the city.
We think this is an excellent gift idea, especially for people who prefer building memories instead of receiving material things.
All in all, Joi Gifts can be a good pick for people who want to stick to a budget. The only problem with this shop is that its personalized gift selection is quite limited.
That’s why if you’re looking for this type of gift, this shop might not be the best choice for you.
Very good service experience
“Very good service experience and high quality flowers. I had an issue with my order and got directly contacted by the management whom kept following up until the issue was solved! Flowers arrangement is beautiful and matches the description. Highly recommend!” – Essam Turkmani
Quick and easy transaction
“I am in Australia and wanted to send a Christmas gift to Dubai. Very pleased with my first experience! The address I had was not an easy place to find but they didn’t give up and made my Christmas delivery on time. Quick and easy transaction. Customer service was excellent!!. The recipients of the large cheese platter I ordered were delighted and the photo they sent looked amazing. Win win all around! I would definitely use Joi Gifts again.” – Christine Spoljar
