Ramadan & Eid Al-Adha Gift Ideas

May 13, 2020

Ramadan 2020 has just started. For Muslims, the holy month of Ramadan is a time of prayer, reflection, and charity. It is a time of peace, where one prays for the world and for themselves. It is not just about small worldly and bodily needs, such as food, but for seeking out inner quietness for answers to spiritual matters.

In line with Ramadan, gift-giving is a tradition in most Islamic cultures. Although it will be a bit different this year as people are only allowed to visit direct families as a precautionary measure to Coronavirus, Eid-al-Fitr, and Eid-al-Adha gifts still make the event feel more festive.

So what are the best gift ideas for Eid 2020? Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Books and CDs for Children

One of the best ways for children to learn the importance of their heritage is during Eid al-Adha. Children are, of course, the hardest to do fasting, as they don’t yet appreciate the meaning of it. However, by giving them activity books to learn about their religion or movies to watch, they’ll grow in understanding of the beauty and grace of their culture.

Chocolate from Patchi Dubai

Get a few of everybody’s favorite chocolate bars or candies from Patchi Dubai, then tie them together with fancy ribbons, a balloon and an Eid card with a special message.  Aside from its premium quality, innovative designs and excellent presentation, Patchi is known for having the finest chocolates with nutty fillings, and thematic chocolate favors/gifts.  With its more than 50 chocolate varieties, you’ll surely find a new favorite!

Jewelry

Jewelry would make an ideal Eid gift for women. But before buying jewelry, you should have an idea about the style they want. If your mother or wife is traditional, then you should purchase jewelry that matches their style. If they are used to western wear, then you can opt for modern jewelry that blends with their style of dressing.

Dried Fruits and Mixed Nuts

A box of dry fruits and mixed nuts is a common sight in most of the Arab houses. You can select from dates, apricots, prunes, walnuts, and almonds. At Al Rifai Dubai, you will surely get the best quality of Nuts, Coffee, Dry Fruits, Confectionery & Gifting.  With more than seventy years of experience and knowledge in the art of roasting, they have perfected their recipes, ingredients and infusions to accommodate the most discerning of tastes. Their roasted nuts, kernels, seeds, dried fruits & coffee range is the true essence of Al Rifai in every sense. And if you have  PRIVILEGEPLUS card, you can get up to 10% discount when you shop at their retail outlet at Mercato Mall.

A box of Cookies

Prepare a basket of freshly-baked cookies wrapped in delightful and elegant hampers along with your personalized “Eid Mubarak” greeting.  At The Truffleers, their hand-made cookies are packed with our famous French truffles and the intense flavor is immediate from the moment they hit the tongue. No chocolate chips added in their cookies! It’s all hand-made chocolate truffles in a variety of different flavors.
