Ultimate Gift Guide for Christmas 2021

It’s that time of the year again where we make a list and check it twice!  

Berytech’s Christmas lists have become a yearly tradition to celebrate our entrepreneurs (if you’ve missed the lists from previous years they are herehere, and here), and of course the list is featuring delicious ideas from QOOT Cluster members.

Healthy Snacks  

With a holiday season filled with a never-ending sugar rush you might want to keep some of these healthy snacks at hand for the kids, or you might just want to grab some as a gift for that person in your life who is planning a ‘new year, new me.’   

Check the protein puffs at Raw Bites, the vegan chocolate cookies from TAQA, and the Cashew Crispy bars from Grapeful.   


Start the season by browsing Château Kefraya’s website before buying your wine, you’ll be amazed by what you will discover (the first wine made in clay jars since the Phoenicians!) then grab a couple of gin bottles from The Three Brothers that has reaped 4 different awards this year. Keep your bar stocked with craft apple cider from Cidra and stock up on alcohol-free options with Cedar’s Premium Malt beer.   

The ultimate coffee lover gift could be the Lebanese Coffee Maker with classic Lebanese coffee (and saucers!) from Café Abi Nasr. 

Lebanese Specialties  

The Good Thymes make perfect travel gifts with a bundle of their different zaatar flavors. We couldn’t choose between pure forest honey and traditional goat kishek from j.Grove but if it were up to us, we’d grab the selection box. 

On a side note, the fig preserves from Ayadina make a wonderful side for any cheeseboard.  

A perfect gift for the person in your life who’s into aromatherapy or who just enjoys the tastes and flavors of nature are Bioland’s essential oils and an unexpected gift is the Lemongrass Distilled Water from The House of Lilies perfect for winter teas or the Organic Lemon Syrop for hot and cold drinks from La Recolte.   

Wrapping and Decoration  

Bringing it all together are the ready-to-shop packaging choices from UNIPAK. Don’t forget that you can make almost anything at the Berytech Fab Lab including great custom ornaments and gift ideas. 

To make it easy, Mawsam has bundled for you baskets of carefully selected items from local producers from around the country. 

In the end, as cheesy as it may sound, the best gift you can give is love, compassion, and a lot of holiday cheer for those who need it. Happy Holidays!
