Eid is one of our most favourite part of the year. We wear new clothes get together in the congregation to offer Eid prayer, eat amazing food, visit our friends and family. However, COVID-19 has forced us to stay at home and celebrate in social distancing. But we can make it special by gifting our family and friends. Gifts are expression of love and care. If you are looking to surprise someone with Eid Gifts, here's a list of some of the gifts that you may give to your friends and family.


1. CASH (Eidi)

This is a traditional gift usually given to children by adults as a part of the celebration. So you can give cash to a younger one in your family by placing it in a beautiful card or money holder and also add personalized messages too. Especially teenagers prefer money over material gifts, as they spend it on things they wanted to buy or save up to buy something that is more expensive and bigger.


2. Spend Time With Loved Ones

Time is the most precious gift that we can spend with our loved ones and nothing will ever beat quality time. No matter how many expensive gifts and gadgets you give to your family, the meaningful conversations and hugs are the things that will be cherished and remembered. So make an effort to show your loved ones that no material gifts can compare to quality time spend together.


3. Religious Books

Religious books are really wonderful gift-giving during Eid. These books can help people to understand the religion better and strengthens their belief. The religious books like stories of Prophets and stories with Islamic morals are really great for Children as they are fond of listening to stories. So beneficent stories like these will help them grow up to be better individual who have knowledge about their religion. You could easily buy some of these online.



Accessories are always a fantastic gift. The younger ones in your family who are considered too old to be given cash (Eidi) or toys, often receive accessories like jewelry, watches, perfumes and handbags. Giving accessories for your loved ones in Eid can make the festival more memorable. You can choose both simple and gorgeous accessories. A fashionable watch or minimalist jewelry for the girls and women is best and sleek and classy watch for men is perfect. This could be a wonderful idea for Eid especially with a large variety of online accessories stores.



Beautiful outfits are the best Eid gifts for your loved ones. Even though the styles and designs of the clothing may vary from place to place. However, when it comes to gifting clothes a pretty scarf or a blouse is a nice idea for women. T-shirt or a tie are great gift for men.



You can give the gift of kindness to someone in need this Eid. You can also teach your children the act of kindness as well. So take your children to the homes of less fortunate people and orphanages, and let your children give the less fortunated ones food and clothes. This will help them see how an act of kindness can impact someone else's life.


7. Gift Basket

A basket that has a lot of products is a good alternative to buying individual gifts. You can put in various products that your family members can use daily. Add hair and skin care products, toys, food, clothes, etc. along with sweet treat like fruits, dates, chocolates or traditional sweets. Everyone will love this gift.

This is a nice article about Eidi, Eman. Eid is a special occasion, and it is a beautiful way to celebrate with friends and family. I like your charity idea. On Eid ul Fitr, I have always loved and enjoyed the concept of fitrana, as well as the distribution of meat to the poor, friends, and relatives on Eid ul Adha. Allah teaches us to love our fellow humans. Thanks for sharing

Many Blessings and Love to you
