Stuff your Stocking (and your belly) with these Middle-Eastern gifts

The holiday season is well and truly upon us! With the promise of the holidays and some much-needed down time just around the corner, it’s not uncommon to leave your shopping until the last minute.

Delicious food has to be one of the best things about Christmas, so why not treat your loved ones and your tastebuds this year? We have a range of products that would make delicious, original gifts for friends, family or other important people in your life. 

Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffer ideas, are on the lookout for a bigger holiday gift or simply fancy sampling some Syrian cuisine this season, we’ve got you covered. 


Date and Sesame Cookies

A cookie that’s delicious and healthy sounds too good to be true, but our chefs bake this Syrian dessert classic to perfection. These fresh, traditional date and sesame cookies come in a pack of five and make for a tasty, healthy pick-me-up at any time of the day. 



This sweet red pepper spread, made with pomegranate molasses, crushed walnuts and olive oil is a much loved Middle Eastern classic. Not only is it absolutely delicious, Mhammara is also really versatile. Add it to a sandwich, mix it into your favourite pasta dish, give an omelette some flavour or use it to dip your fries or potatoes in. 



Eggplant is a classic ingredient in Middle Eastern food and Mutabbal, a smoked eggplant dip, is as flavourful and fresh as it gets. Our talented chefs combine a perfect blend of smoked eggplant, creamy tahini and pomegranate molasses to create this smooth vegan dip. Healthy and delicious, Mutabbal makes the perfect snack or pre-dinner appetizer. 


Packaged Hummus 

One of the Middle East’s most loved foodstuffs, Tayybeh’s hummus is one of the tastiest around. Made fresh in our kitchens, this blend of mashed chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and garlic is authentically Syrian and has become one of our most popular offerings.

Pita chips

If you want to experience our dips in their absolute element, we recommend pairing them with a bag of our homestyle Pita Chips. Made in house and baked to crispy perfection, they’re flavoursome and super scoopable. You can also crumble these into a salad for some added texture. 


Tea biscuits

Using aromatic spices such as turmeric, anise and cardamom, these delicious traditional Syrian tea biscuits are light, tasty, and make the perfect accompaniment to a hot drink.  


Holiday Gift Boxes

Available for pick-up and delivery between the 5th and the 24th December, our thoughtfully-selected, authentically Syrian gift boxes feature some of Tayybeh's most popular products. Treat your loved ones to a snackable Middle-Eastern feast with Mhammara, Mutabbal, hummus, Aleppo Zaatar (a blend of spices), date and walnut Maamoul, Kleja cookies and our Homestyle Pita Chips.
