Eid gifts for her: Eid-ul-fitr marks the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan. it is a religious and joyous festival celebrated by Muslims all over the world. Eid-ul-fitr is also known as the ‘smaller Eid’. ‘Eid’ means festival or feast in Arabic.
How Is Eid Celebrated?
The festivities begin upon the sighting of the Shawwal moon and continue for three days. Celebrations vary from culture to culture. mostly it revolved around friends and family getting together. Food and sweet dishes are prepared. Gifts are exchanged between loved ones. the exchange of gifts is known as ‘Eidi’ or ‘Eidiya’.
What Is Eidi?
Eidi is a gift usually given to children by adults, but every family has different customs. There is usually an exchange of gifts among adults as well, nowadays. The common practice is elders giving Eidi to younger siblings or relatives. But since this is the only joyous occasion in Islam which we can celebrate, other than Eid ul Adha, it is permissible to give gifts as a symbol of love and happiness.
When Can Eidi be Given?
After the Eid prayer, friends and family gather under one roof with their nearest and dearest for a hearty breakfast or brunch. That is usually the time when handing of gifts takes place, but it is not set in stone. Some people prefer to go to the respective homes to give gifts for a more connected experience. This was all how it was before the pandemic hit, since people are avoiding meetups, it doesn’t mean Eid has to lose its charm. Everything is at your fingertips it can be arranged, ordered, and delivered however and wherever you want it to. You can find some great tips on this from our previous post on Tips to Keep Your Faith Strong in Pandemic & Duas for Covid.
What Is A Good Eid Gift?
It is common practice to give money as Eidi but there are numerous other things tat can be considered as well, especially when it comes to lady friends and family members.

If she’s a fitness freak, then buying gifts for her should be pretty easy. If you want to go big you can get her a treadmill or an indoor cycling machine.

Like this Islamic adult coloring book for $12.99 or the 99 Names Of Allah Islamic Coloring Book for $9.99.

6 – Clothes
When it comes to Eid gifts clothes are a very safe choice, something everyone loves and can’t get enough off!!! Since the weather will mostly be hot this Eid in most countries, a lawn outfit can be the perfect gift. If you’re planning to give an unstitched gift, it might be a good idea to give it a few weeks in advance so she can have it stitched for Eid. And if it is a stitched outfit then that’s even better. There are many amazing brands with Eid collections that ship internationally such as Khaadi and Limelight. You can also find many good quality hijabs and abayas at Sapphire.
5 – Jewellery
Woman’s next best friend, jewellry!! The jewellery owned by a person can tell you a lot about their personality. Every piece tells a story. Thankfully ,Islam has no restrictions about any kind of jewellry items. Feel free to browse through Zee.sy and buy whatever you think the person might like. You will small delicate pieces as well as loud classic ones too. Colors can be customized of any design and will definitely be shipped to the place of your choice.
But since the occasion is religious, it can be a good idea to gift something with a religious feel to it. For instance:
4 – Eid Basket
Eid is incomplete without traditional sweets, or better known as ‘Mithai’. The delicious combination of flour, sugar, and milk. Without this any happy event or occasion feels like something is missing. You can make it all the more special by getting a customized basket made with all her favorite things – you can include some non-traditional stuff too like chocolates, biscuits, etc. And since it’s Eid, you can even add some Eid accessories like Henna and bangles. If you don’t have the time to make a basket like this, there are a number of vendors in all cities these days who cater to such requests, arrange the basket and even deliver it for you.
3 – Books
An avid reader??!!! Getting lost in a book!! If that is what she loves then get her a few new books. But gifting books is not an easy task as you might not know which one she would like, or you might now know if she already has a particular book or not but there’s a solution for every problem and Amazon Kindle is the solution for this one. Just get her a waterproof, Kindle paperwhite for $129.99 so she can read all her favorite books in comfort. To make the gift even better, I recommend pairing it with a kindle books gift card for $50 as she can then immediately start shopping.
2 – Scented Candles
One of the best ways to bring warmth and coziness into her home, a scented candle. You should be the one responsible for the beautiful, soft aroma drifting in her house. No chemicals added, original scents Bath and Body Works has an amazing collection of candles you will find absolutely impossible to choose from.
1 – Electronic gadgets
Is she technology obsessed? A power bank, foldable keyboard, ear pods or Bluetooth speakers can be considered as well. Amazon offers every thing starting from mechanical sharpeners to drones. Surprise her with something she might be wanting to get for sometime.
The Size Of the Gift Doesn’t Matter
With the current pandemic things can get tight for a lot of households with budgets. Just remember the size of the gift doesn’t matter or much you spend on it, but with how much love you send it their way. An expensive present doesn’t always means it comes from the heart. Keeping in mind that spending too much on something that can be done economically is frowned upon in Islam, and is known as Israaf.
