Top 10 Eid Gift Ideas

Unique Gifts for Eid

Eid al-Fitr is predicted to fall on the 9 or 10 April this year to mark the completion of Ramadan. Eid al-Adha is the day when billions of families follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammed (SAW) to do Qurbani.

Qurbani is the practice of honouring Ibrahim’s (AS) devotion to Allah (SWT) when he was willing to sacrifice his son for Allah’s (SWT) sake. Qurbani meat is distributed to the poor and needy around the world so that they can celebrate the joys of Eid, too.

With so many reasons to celebrate, Muslims come together with family and spread joy by wearing new clothes, eating good food, spending quality time together, and giving gifts. So, if you are looking to surprise your family, children, and friends, read on. We’ve covered some unique gifts and Eid gift ideas that your loved ones could receive.

Money

“Eidi” or money is the most common gift given. Some of the best memories of our childhood involve money gifts that we could spend on sweets and treats. A sweet way of giving Eidi a more personal touch is by putting it inside an “Eid Mubarak” card or in customised envelopes.

Chocolate Dates

Chocolate dates are delicious mouth-watering treats, and lucky for us, they are a big trend right now. There are many on the internet, and there should be plenty of local sellers in your area, too. You can even make them at home!

Oud Candle and Reed Diffuser

There is no scent quite as lovely as Oud, and perfume would make the perfect gift for any female member of your family. If you would like a gift that will benefit a whole family, an Oud candle and diffuser gift set is your best bet! We love Nuhr’s Oud gift sets.

Feel free to look around on the website if you would prefer to gift a candle or reed diffuser on its own. Either way, this is a foolproof gift and will surely bring smiles to the faces of your loved ones.

Gift Hamper

For a whole family that you would like to express your love to, a more personalised touch would be to give them an Eid gift hamper. You can put in various drinks depending on what the family’s preferences are, such as different teas, coffees, or hot chocolates. A homemade jam with scones or crackers and cheese is always a hit, along with sweet treats like fruit, dates, chocolates, or traditional sweets like Mathai or Baklava. You may also want to add some tea light candles or incense and self-care products, such as bath bombs. If you want to keep things simple, a hamper of chocolates and sweets does the trick. Best of all, we know that everyone will love this gift and that there will be something inside for everyone. You can buy these from many Eid UK gift sites, but also make them yourself to personalise them even more!

Hotel Chocolat Hamper

We are obsessed with Hotel Chocolat’s dreamy Everything Chocolate Gift Hamper Collection. Many of Hotel Chocolat’s treats have alcohol, but luckily, this hamper is alcohol-free and suitable for vegetarians. It is 100% Halal, and you can gift it to anyone you want or even to yourself – we won’t judge you. This hamper includes some of the most famous recipes in their collection with a good range of chocolate flavours.

Electronics

With the rise of technology, electronics are very commonly gifted now over toys and clothes. Based on your loved ones’ wants and needs, you can get them one of many things. For example, a Bluetooth speaker or wireless headphones for the person who likes listening to music. A power bank for the one who uses their phone battery too much. Gadgets like a smartwatch for the health-conscious or a tablet for the person who likes to read. Go ahead and splurge.

Accessories

A fashionable watch or minimalist jewellery for the girls and women in your family are gifts that you can’t go wrong with. Perhaps a set of gold-plated earrings, bracelets, and necklaces? Or a sleek and classy watch for men? Either way, accessories are always a fantastic gift, and we are sure that whomever you gift them to will love them.

Religious Books

This is a great option for Eid gift ideas for adults. In the spirit of Eid, giving the gift of a religious book would be a great show of love and care. There are various religious books you could get for someone. For example, you could look for personalised books of Du’as for the adults in your family or give the children in your family Islamic children books.

If you’re looking for recommendations, you can hear from best-selling children’s author Na’ima B. Robert in our 2022 Magazine learn more about her books, including the one with Mufti Menk, as well as her favourite children’s titles from other authors.

Charity

Why not give the gift of kindness to someone in need this Eid? Maybe you could take your children to a shelter for homeless people and feed them together? You could give them some of your Eid food, some simple homemade sandwiches with butter and cheese, or some takeout food like pizza if you prefer.

You can also do the same to feed the people who are hungry and living on the streets. Simple acts like buying or making hot drinks for those who are cold and isolated will go a long way in changing someone’s day and bringing hope. It is crucial to show your children the value of kindness and teach them that we should be grateful for all our privileges.

Time

Time is the most important gift. No matter how many material gifts you give, nothing will ever beat quality time, meaningful conversations, and hugs. It is important to make the most of every day you have with your loved ones. Remember to tell your family you love them, cherish every memory, take photos and always be kind to one another. The sweet memories of Eid are worth more than a million gifts.
