Eid gifts (“barka da sallah” or “goron sallah“) are one of the things I look forward to during the celebration. I know we are a few weeks away from Eid-el-Adha and I’m already talking eid but I get excited about eid. The food, new clothes, gifts, money, visiting family, the whole nine yards.
Eid is about celebrating a new month (Eid-el-fitr) and the faith shown by prophet Ibrahim when he was asked to sacrifice his son (Eid-el-adha) but it looks like this year eid is just going to be about staying at home and posting pictures. This is because we are all hopefully practicing social distancing. Gift giving is a great way to ensure that the ties of kinship are maintained. Therefore, here are a few ideas of gifts that you can purchase online from the comfort of your bed for your loved ones.
For the beauty lover
You can get them new
- You could get a beauty box like the ones curated by @bathkandy and @afribeautycollective.
- A gift card to a beauty store so they can get what they want ( @essentialshub
, @myamariamare a few places you could check out).
For the natural skincare lover
For the perfume/ fragrance lover
Try getting a collection of oil perfumes that way the person can have a selection of little perfumes and decide whether to get a full one (which does not concern you since you’ve done your part -wheting their appetite) try @pamela_arcadia . Also, you can get humra from @dolcesheriff , incense from @turaretemple and/or scented candles from @Lohnlagos.
For the trendy accessories and fabrics
You can get
For the sweets lover
For the tea lover
For the stationery lover
And finally, if you just don’t know what to get @the.hafsaa can curate a custom box that’ll fit your budget. Also, you can donate to a charity/cause that is dear to that special person. If all else fails or this is too much hassle just send money! 😁
