Eid Guide: Eight Last Minute Gifts
From Jewellery to tea, here are our best suggestions
Like all holidays, Eid can be stressful when it comes to gift shopping, especially if you’re busy with other things. To make it easier for you, we’ve created a list of eight last minute Eid gifts. 1. Godiva’s chocolate covered strawberries: chocolates are a cliché when it comes to Eid gifts. Chocolate covered strawberries? Now that’s a twist. Godiva makes extra-large strawberries that are known to be always ripe and sweet. They sell packaged boxes, containing 6 pieces, as gifts. 2. Arabic perfume: It’s always a good idea to gift Arabic perfume on Eid. It’s traditional, personal, and can be given to almost anyone! Rasasi perfume brand manufactured Dhanel Oudh Al Nafees, for men and women, in a limited edition crystal bottle and a wooden box. The perfume itself is a mixture of Oudh, Amber & Rose, Sandalwood and Musk. 3. Jewellery: diamonds are a girl’s best friend. So, if you’re looking for an Eid gift for a special woman in your life, you can’t possibly go wrong with jewellery. Liali Jewellery has created an Eid collection that includes this 18K white gold ring with diamonds. 4. Forrey & Galland macaroons: This luxury brand makes one of the freshest macaroons in the UAE. We know, because we tried. They’re famous for their macaroon mountains and even have Eid-themed decoration boxes for them. 5. Flowers: If there ever was a timeless gift, it’s flowers. In Eid, families and friends usually visit each other in their homes for cosy get-togethers. People will always appreciate flowers because they can act as centrepieces and decorations for their homes. Plus, they make everyone smile. 6. Two Wheels Self Balance Electric Scooter: This is a quirky and fun gift to give a sibling or cousin. The two wheels scooter is trending worldwide. It’s a fun device – though not as easy to ride as it looks. You can order it from Awok.com and have it delivered within 24 hours. 7. Salon or spa voucher: For the occasion of Eid, men’s salon Jazz Lounge Spa is offering promotion for a Moroccan bath, manicure, and pedicure combination. You can add in a massage and you got yourself a great gift! 8. Tea: This might sound like an odd gift, but Eid is a time where coffee and tea are drunk in abundance. Local tea brand, Avantcha, offers specialized tea boxes that can be given as gifts. Who doesn’t like tea anyway?
