Been here several times since 2011. For first timer, better navigate, survey and see what exactly you fancy. The choices are immense, from souvenirs, carpets, perfumes, furniture and food among others.
Some highlights for me:
UAE traditional sweet dessert
Afghan Kilim & Carpets
Palestinian ceramics (plates, bowls, mugs)
Turkish lamps and ceramics
Tip: Bring your foldable shopping trolley/cart or you can buy one at UAE Pavillion
