Delicious Ramadan Food Gifts to Give This Year

It’s that time of the year again when we celebrate Ramadan with plenty of feasting and joy. As you’re visiting family members and friends during this special month, why not show your love and appreciation by giving out simple-yet-thoughtful Ramadan food gifts

When Is Ramadan 2023?

This year, Ramadan is expected to start Wednesday, March 22nd, and end Friday, April 21st. The exact dates will be determined by a sighting of the new moon. 

During this month-long period of fasting and spiritual reflection, Muslims abstain from food, drink, and other worldly pleasures during daylight hours. It is also a time to focus on prayer, charity, and purification. 

Do People Give Gifts For Ramadan?

During Ramadan, gift-giving is a thoughtful and meaningful way to share appreciation and show love for family and friends. 

Gifts are typically given during Eid, at the end of the holy month, but people also bring food items to show thanks when invited to an Iftar celebration. Desserts and specialty food items are common to give when invited to an Iftar party or to food-loving friends and family during Eid.
