Many people will know about Ramadan – the month observed by millions of Muslims around the world in the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar which is marked through fasting, increased worship and charity.

However, what many non-Muslims don’t realise is that the end of Ramadan is marked by Eid-Al-Fitr – the ‘Festival of Breaking Fast.’

This is a time to celebrate with loved ones by hosting dinners, dressing up and exchanging gifts and money (Money gifted on Eid day is known as Eidi).

In Muslim countries, the stores would be adorned with Eid decor and piled high with Eid gift ideas, but in the UK this naturally isn’t the case so figuring out what to gift loved ones can be a little more challenging.

When looking in the right places, though, there is a whole range of gifts for loved ones from parents and partners, to siblings and friends, and everyone in between.

ESPA Soothing Diffuser

For those that host you on Eid day, or perhaps have hosted you for Iftar throughout Ramadan, this ESPA Soothing Diffuser makes a wonderful gift.Bringing the sanctuary of a spa into the home, it contains a blend of Rose Geranium, Myrrh, Frankincense and Sandalwood. The brand focuses on the benefits of aromatherapy to de-stress, restore and revive. With natural rattan reeds, and a neutral bottle, it’ll complement any home.

Gold Foiled Eid Mubarak Greetings Card

Buying Eid cards, unlike many other festivals, isn’t as easy as popping into your local supermarket. Although we have seen retailers such as Marks & Spencer starting to stock cards for the occasion, it still isn’t the norm across the board.However, giving a card on Eid gives you space to write a meaningful message to loved ones, or just provides a home for your Eidi. We love these gold foiled elegant cards, with a simple luxe design that is sure to elevate any Eid gift.

Plantsmith Houseplant Gift Set

For loved ones with a green thumb, we can’t think of a more perfect gift than this Plantsmith Houseplant Gift Set. With both a bottle of Houseplant Feed & Tonic and a bottle of Perfecting Houseplant Care Mist this kit contains everything needed to keep indoor plants thriving. We particularly love the chic brown bottles and minimalist outer packaging.

Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream

Post-Ramadan, skin can often feel in a slump from dehydration and a shift in sleeping pattern. That’s why we feel that gifting skincare on Eid is sure to go down a treat. This award-winning face cream is a cult classic in the beauty world, with one pot sold every two minutes around the world. Powered by a plethora of skin-loving ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E and peptides, it gives skin an instant glowing effect.

Neom Organics London Wellbeing Pod Mini Diffuser

For a touch of indulgence your loved ones probably wouldn’t treat themselves to, this mini diffuser is designed to scent small spaces such as cars, home offices and bathrooms. We’re huge fans of the Neom pods – using the Luxe to scent the full home with ease, and gifting the Original to everyone from our sisters to our mums. However, this compact diffuser comes at a lower price point and allows for scenting without water – making it portable and safe for small spaces. Don’t let the small size fool you though, with three intensity settings, working on intermittent bursts rather than a cloud vapour, the diffuser will uplift spaces for a wellbeing boost wherever they are.

Dates For Palestine

Ramadan is a month of increased charity amongst the Muslim community, and a great way to encompass this is weaving it into a thoughtful Eid gift that gives back to the communities that need it most. Dates holds a deep significance within the Islamic community, and are consumed in abundance throughout Ramadan. These Medjool Dates come in a beautiful tin, and with each tin purchased, the charity will provide a minimum of 500 litres of clean and safe drinking water in Gaza.The Dates for Palestine project wholly funds the operation of 2 water desalination plants within Gaza which pump out approximately 170,000 litres of clean drinking water each day.

Hydro Flask Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Drinks Bottle

After a month of fasting, we approach water with a renewed sense of appreciation, and the importance of hydration throughout the day becomes even more clear. Additionally, within the thirty days, many Muslims find it hard to do the things they would do normally in warmer weather and so hold back on exercise, hiking and outdoor activities – but following Eid, we are sure your loved ones will be making the most of the summer months. This insulated Hydro Flask water bottle keeps drinks cold up to 24 hours and hot up to 12 hours when using the lid.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Recently when asking people about their Ramadan beauty routine, I realised just how popular this face spray was amongst those fasting. As well as a Ramadan essential for dry skin, this is truly a summer staple – this 100% natural skincare mist reveals glow, tightens pores and refreshes the skin. Perfect for hydrating on long flights, or keeping on your desk to spritz throughout the day, we’re sure anyone will love receiving this cult classic from Caudalie.

Desi Doll Aisha English/Arabic Speaking Doll

When gifting children, it can often be tricky to find something both useful and engaging, but Desi Doll Company has managed to create just that, with a doll that provides Islamic education. It is really meaningful to be able to gift toys to children that look like them and feel relatable. We love the Aisha doll, which comes with a detachable hijab, and two levels of talking and singing content. Aisha can say key Islamic phrases and recite Quranic verses – great for teaching little ones in a fun way!

Aesop Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum

For many Muslim men, taking care of their beard is a core part of their grooming routine, and particularly when it comes to shaping, it’s no easy feat. This Aesop Shaving Serum is a luxury he doesn’t know he needs, but we’re sure he will love. With a blend of hydrating botanicals, the formula gives maximum slip for a close shave, whilst also calming and soothing the skin.

Tom Ford Noir Eau de Parfum

Known for his iconic fragrances, Tom Ford never disappoints and this refined amber scent is no exception. It’s a luxury gift for sure, but one the man in your life is sure to treasure and savour. Notes of bergamot, nutmeg, amber and vanilla marry to create long-lasting urban scent – plus, it comes housed in a dark glass bottle we’re sure will get a place of pride on his dressing table.

Dyson Airwrap Complete Multi Hair Styler

For those you really want to spoil, the esteemed Airwrap is on almost everyone’s wish list. Engineered for multiple hair types, lengths and styles, this multi-styling tool dries, curls, shapes and smooths without using extreme heat.We know it is an investment for sure, but the Dyson Airwrap Complete is the most awarded hair multi-styler and replaces the need for a hairdryer and curling tong.

Cowshed Replenish Uplifting Candle

Candles are a fail safe gift for any occasion, but it can sometimes feel overwhelming with the amount of options out there. W/e’d recommend this one from Cowshed which has a pleasing, summery, uplifting scent that is well suited to all recipients. A blend of Red Mandarin, Bitter Orange and Grapefruit, the scent is citrus based without being sharp – giving a lasting fresh and bright smell. If this isn’t enough to convince you,Cowshed candles are also all made of 100% natural biodegradable soy wax, delivering a clean burn.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 Instant Camera

The gift that keeps on giving; this Fujifilm Instax is perfect for capturing memories on Eid day and beyond. Delivering printed photos in just five seconds, we love how it brings fun to every gathering with loved ones – whether pictures are being snapped to provide keepsakes for guests, or just for your own albums.It’s easy to use, with automatic exposure and flash control, as well as selfie and close-up mode, making it an ideal gift for everyone from younger teens upwards! We also really like the pastel colourways – our faves are the Mint Green and Lilac Purple.
