    Things to buy

    Salams

    Apart from zam zam, dates and prayer mats.

    What other traditional items or specialities are nice to buy from makkah/madinah?

    For mum, hands down, no doubt, gold jewelry.
    Depending on your budget, spend accordingly but even if it's a tight budget you can get a pendant, or earrings, or something.
    Gold
    She will love telling her friends about it.
    She'll remember you got it for her from the holy lands.

    Gold prices being lower there - I dont know about that in all honesty.
    Gold prices reflect the market.
    You can and should visit at least 2 shops before buying from one so that you have an idea of how much leeway you can bargain.
    And Yes, for gold, you do bargain, it is NOT fixed prices.
    Little wiggle room for smaller items but there is wiggle room.
    Enjoy

    Re: Things to buy

    Almost all Hajis do buy following gifts.
    1) Dates (Usually bought from Madina)
    2) Zamzam (Each Haji gets his share of Zamzam, which can be distributed as gift, using small bottles purchased locally)
    3) Tasbeeh (beads) - Range from (5 to 500 SAR)
    4) Prayer Mats (5 to 150 SAR)
    5) Small sized Attar or Oud

    Those who like to spend even more, also buy
    5) Abayas
    6) Quran (In Fancy Packing)
    7) Large sized, Attar or Oud
