s the Muslim holy month of Ramadan draws to a close, many are eagerly anticipating the first normal Eid-Al-Fitr since the pandemic began – and with two years to make up for, this year’s celebrations are bound to be bigger than ever. Cash is king when it comes to Eidi, but if you’re looking to treat your loved ones to something extra special this year, we’ve rounded up the best gifts to put a smile on their face.
The best Eid gifts for her
Set her up for summer with new season accessories that pack a punch. These playful mules by Malone Souliers will have her putting her best (well-heeled) foot forward wherever she goes; while Gucci’s floral silk scarf is guaranteed to inspire delight in both young and old. Elsewhere, Bottega Veneta’s cult Mini Jodie clutch has been given a head-turning makeover in a jewel-toned patent leather, sure to please style savants. If you’re looking to push the boat out, Annoushka’s dazzling net earrings will do nicely. For fragrance lovers, Tom Ford has you covered with its intoxicating Bitter Peach eau de parfum.
The best Eid gifts for him
We all know a notoriously hard-to-please tech-head, but London-based Nothing’s ‘Ear’ (1) wireless earphones in a moody matte-black colourway – complete with state-of-the-art noise cancellation and seriously-good sound – should easily do the trick. If he’s overdue a style update, Foundrae’s gold chain necklace makes an easy way to elevate any great outfit and is sure to become a treasured heirloom. Elsewhere, Albus Lumen’s laidback cotton-muslin shirt is a slick alternative to classic Oxford styles. Acqua di Parma’s rich Oud eau de parfum will be an ideal addition to any cologne collection, while men with a sweet tooth will be over the moon to receive Maison Samadi truffles.
The best Eid gifts for kids
While little ones are traditionally bestowed with cold, hard cash come Eid, that’s no reason to forego some serious gift-giving this year. Ignite their imagination and keep tiny hands occupied with this adorable doctor’s case by Swedish brand Kids Concept, or take them for a spin on Stoy’s vintage ride-on car. Parents will love Ariana Ost’s handmade mobile, making a beautiful addition to any nursery, while Desmond and Dempsey’s adorable mini-me tiger print pyjamas make bedtime even sweeter. And speaking of sweet, kids will be delighted to receive Biscuiteers’s beautifully-iced Eid biscuits (although you may have to fight to get one for yourself).
The best Eid gifts for the home
We’ll take advantage of any excuse to give our space a little spruce up, and Eid is no exception. Petra Palumbo’s colourful blown-glass jug and Jonathan Adler’s gilded fruit bowl make easy work of dinner party tablescapes, while De’Longhi’s master coffee machine has all the bells and whistles you need to keep guests (and yourself) well-caffeinated. Completedworks’s quirky, misshapen vase, meanwhile, gets the trend for off-kilter interiors just right, and Reflections Copenhagen keeps things light with its crescent-moon candle.
