Eid Gifts: An Essential Guide to Selecting Thoughtful Gifts

Eid is a period of celebration that takes place twice a year and lasts between 1 to 3 days. During this time, members of the Muslim community gather for prayer, shared meals, acts of charity, and gift-giving.

Even if you don’t identify as Muslim, consider yourself deeply loved and a special part of the family should you be invited to partake in the festivities. As a token of appreciation and to help you fully participate in the celebrations, bring a gift to present to your gracious host.

You want your gift to be thoughtful and a show of your affection. To purchase such as gift you must:

  1. Understand the personality of the recipient and their situation
  2. Decide on the form of gift
  3. Select the best gift

Step 1: Create a Gift Map that Will Lead You Straight Into Their Heart

Begin by drawing out a gift map which is easy to follow and will help you choose the most thoughtful gift. Think of the different aspects of your friend’s personality. Ask yourself questions like: Is my friend introverted or extroverted? Are they adventurous or more reserved?

Delight your loved ones with a gift that:

  • Represents the personality of the recipient
  • Fills a need or want that they have 
  • Is suitable for the celebration
  • Is chosen with intention to convey your care 

Gifts are about strengthening a special bond through authenticity and genuine interest. Think back on your conversations and identify repeated areas of interest, passions, or wants and use this to expand your gift map.

Considering Eid is a period of celebration and sharing, broaden your search by identifying gifts that can easily be used or shared amongst family, such as cookware sets, personalized family mugs, or a customized portrait.

Make this celebration period special by giving a gift that shows your understanding and love for the host. 

Step 2: Choose a Gift Type That Delights

Several gift types can be given individually or with a package. The easiest way to select the perfect gift type is by following your gift-map and considering your budget. For Eid celebrations, consider the following:

  • An experience 
  • An edible gift
  • A physical, yet timeless gift

Experience gifts tend to be on the expensive side, but not always. Consider ideas such as a vacation trip to a place on their bucket list, a trip to the cinema to watch their favorite film, or a day away at the spa to rejuvenate them.

An edible present can make the perfect Eid celebration gift as it fits into the feasting theme and can easily be shared with family. To nail this, consider the dietary and cultural restrictions of your loved ones.

Step 3: Selecting the Ideal Gift

At this step, you’ve identified what they like and chosen the most appropriate gift type for the occasion. All that’s left is to decide on the exact gift itself.

Part of choosing a gift that shows you know your loved ones is where and how you make the purchase, which requires a lot of research on the different brands offering the gift idea you have. It can be quite tedious so try to narrow down your options to between 3 and 5. To help you, choose keep these factors in mind: 

  • Brand values
  • Distance to the store
  • Timing and price of delivery
  • Customer reviews
