You won’t want to leave Amman without a Dead Sea product in your bag. Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest that you shop for mud, salts and facial products infused with skin-softening Dead Sea minerals that will make great souvenirs and gifts. Jordan is also known for its sweets. Head to one of the many Zalatimo Sweets stores (there’s one in the airport too) and grab a box of baklava or the assorted ma’mul:  pastries filled with pistachios, dates or walnuts. Your family back home will thank you if you can resist temptation on the journey back home. You might also like to take home a bottle of Arak, a colorless anise-flavored liqueur that can be mixed with water and ice for a cooling pre-dinner drink.
