As everyone comes together to celebrate this special occasion with family and friends, sharing the joy of new clothes, delicious food, quality time, and presents, why not add a sprinkle of fun to the mix? Yes, it’s that time of the year again when we gather round, decked out in our finest attires, ready to indulge in mouth-watering treats and exchange tokens of affection.

Do you want to make your Eid celebrations more fun by giving special presents instead of the usual Eidi? But hold onto your hats because there’s a twist in the tale - some of us have graduated from being the lucky recipients of Eidi to the esteemed role of Eidi givers! That’s right, it’s our turn to dish out the dough and spread some cheer. But fear not, dear friends, for we’ve got a trick up our sleeves to make this transition a breeze. With a little creativity and a dash of charm, we can turn our Eidi duties into a delightful adventure for all involved. And hey, if you play your cards right, you might even distract them with the sheer adorableness of your gift envelopes and sneakily slip in a smaller amount - shh, we won’t tell!

So, let’s roll up our sleeves and dive headfirst into different ideas for Eid gifts. From whimsical wonders to charming trinkets, we’ve got a treasure trove of goodies waiting to be explored. Read on…

Eidi - a tradition of giving

Eidi, a tradition of giving monetary gifts, is a beloved custom during Eid celebrations. Enhance the experience by personalising it with Eid Mubarak cards or custom-designed envelopes, adding a heartfelt touch to your gesture. Don’t limit the exchange to just children; consider sharing Eidi among adults as well, fostering a sense of joy and camaraderie among loved ones of all ages.

Culinary treats

Eid feasts are a highlight after a month of fasting, making food an ideal gift. Opt for delights like dried fruits, nuts, or chocolate-covered dates for a lighter touch. Tea, coffee, or hot chocolate are universally appreciated gifts. Explore renowned tea brands, or consider a variety of coffee flavours and indulgent hot chocolate options.

Add a little sparkle

Dressing up is part of the Eid tradition, making jewellery a cherished gift. Whether for a friend, sibling, or mother, a carefully chosen piece will be treasured. Consider personal tastes and preferences when selecting jewellery.

Fashionable finds

Choose clothing as a timeless gift, catering to individual style and preference. Whether it’s traditional attire steeped in culture or casual wear for everyday comfort, make your selection thoughtful and personal. Elevate their wardrobe with pieces that reflect their unique taste, ensuring a gift they’ll cherish.

A delightful scent

Fragrances make for an excellent gift option. You have a wide range to choose from, but for something truly special, consider Oud. This prized wood from the Middle East holds deep significance in Islam as a symbol of love. With its inviting, woody aroma, Oud adds a touch of luxury to any Eid gift.

Home accents

When gifting for their home, consider both utility and style. Options like cosy blankets, elegant candles, or stylish cheese boards can enhance any living space.

The spirit of wanderlust

After Ramazan, a well-deserved break can rejuvenate the soul. Consider gifting a holiday or travel gift certificate to a friend who loves to explore, allowing them to rejuvenate their soul through exploration and discovery.

Tech savvy treats

Embrace the modern era by offering electronic gifts customised to suit the interests and requirements of your loved ones. Whether it’s a Bluetooth speaker for the music aficionado or a smartwatch for the fitness enthusiast, there’s something to delight everyone.

Gift hampers or cards

When faced with the challenge of finding the perfect gift, consider the versatility of gift hampers or cards. Whether crafted with care or purchased from a store, these options offer flexibility and enduring delight. Tailor-made selections allow for a personal touch, while store-bought varieties ensure convenience without compromising on quality. Regardless of the choice, gift hampers or cards are sure to bring lasting enjoyment to the recipient.

Share the joy

Lastly, spread kindness by giving to those in need. Whether it’s volunteering at a local shelter or offering food to the homeless, even the smallest gestures can create a significant impact. By spreading compassion and generosity, we can make the world a better place.
