Quite hard to shop for souvenirs in Abu Dhabi - not much variety compared to other places. But you can get some nice souvenirs - T-shirts, coffee pot, genie bottle, carpets etc. from Hamdan Center along Sheikh Hamdan Road. You can also get some cheap memorabilia like bottles of sand collected from different emirates and other replicas from a shop called Gift Tower (behind Hamdan Center). There is also another shop called Wonder Gift located at the corner of Hamdan St & Salam St. So happy souvenir-shopping!
What to buy: T-shirts, camel statues, replica of Burj al-Arab, postcards, genie lamp, sand from different emirates (different colors) etc.
What to pay: Few dirhams to couple of tens of dirhams... depending on what you want to buy.
Ikea Home store: Be prepared to splurge!
In case you already have Ikea in your country, then maybe it is not a big deal. But for me Ikea stores are a place I look forward to shopping in since I find their products, reasonable, reliable and exclusive. We do not have Ikea stores in India.
What to buy: Home decor products, Linens, garden equipment, furnishing, furniture and much more.
Hamdan Centre: Sports wear and Antiques
This complex has a lot of sports stores selling fake stuff that looks its the real thing :)
What to buy: watches, jewellery, clothes, sporting goods, antiques.
What to pay: BARGAIN! you can get stuff for half the price the salesclerk is offering most of the time.
