Eid Gifts

Preparing for a major holiday like Eid-Al Fitr can be a challenge, especially when thinking about
the kind of gifts that you would like to give to family and friends. To make preparations easier,
we have compiled a list of three great gift ideas to help you come up with the perfect gifts for
your loved ones.


Gifting your loved one with a stylish addition to their wardrobe is a common Eid gift that is deeply rooted in Eid tradition. Muslims are encouraged to celebrate Eid in their best outfits. It is an ideal gift idea that applies to all ages. Children cherish new clothes for Eid and can’t wait to show them off to their friends like it’s the first day of the school year. A new wardrobe addition for young adults and adults is also highly appreciated, especially if your clothing gift matches their style of choice. Clothing gifts will always keep you in the minds and hearts of your loved ones.

Tech gifts

We are living in a digital era, and technology is an important part of our day-to-day lives. Gifting a tech item is the perfect way to show your loved one how much they mean to you this Eid. Gifts such as headphones, laptops, smartphones, smart-watches, tablets, and video game electronics, are just some of the popular tech gift ideas. Home appliances like a new coffee/espresso maker – or even a robot vacuum – are also popular and meaningful. If you are on a budget, you can still think about simple tech gifts like a charging case or wireless charging set. There are many different options to choose from that can make a difference in the lives of your loved ones.
