Just thinking of something that to give your Muslim friend for Eid is a very thoughtful gesture – especially if it’s not a holiday you celebrate yourself. Chances are they will be so happy that you thought of giving them an Eid present, it doesn’t even matter what it is!
Like everyone else, we love food, entertainment, decor, and so on. But if you are worried about appropriateness, cultural differences, or anything, here are 10 Eid gift ideas to give your Muslim friend for Eid.
Picnics are a big deal in some Muslim cultures, and are the perfect outing for social distancing. Especially right after Ramadan when they can eat during daylight, your Muslim friend would love to receive some picnic gear.
These picnic service sets are super handy.
Who doesn’t just take an old blanket out for picnics? A proper picnic blanket would be lovely to have.They are weatherized on one side and roll up nicely with a handle.
For the Home
Buying home items can sometimes be tricky but if you know your friend well then you can certainly choose items you know will fit their style. I love this soft blanket from Modern Eid as it’s functional and beautiful.
A multi-fragrance set like Anjou’s is also lovely, as are their pretty containers.
For those that like a stronger, or more masculine scent these candles fit the bill. They make a really nice gift for any home, especially for people who don’t love traditional overly floral scents.
A cheese board, I believe, is a necessity for every home. I love this one that has a sliding compartment for all the tools you would want or need! You can pair it with some of your favorite cheeses for an even bigger surprise.
I understand giving food gifts to Muslims can be daunting because of our food restrictions, but they are really pretty simple. We don’t eat anything with pork in it, including gelatin and nothing with alcohol. Just like vegans and food allergy folks struggle, these ingredients sneak into things all the time. We are used to it, so no worries if it happens.
To make it a little easier, jere are some great food gifts for Muslims.
Lindt Chocolates are well-liked by Muslims I think because they are known not to have liquor in them.
Some other snack suggestions include;
- Saffron Road Seasoned Chickpeas
- Dry Fruit and Nuts Box
- Chocolate Covered Dates
- Halal Beef Jerky
- A tin full of tasty gourmet popcorn
Many homes have a default favorite tea, but are open to other varieties. But if you know they prefer coffee or hot chocolate there’s a few options for that too!
Vadham has collected 12 of their award-winning tea blends and packed them into lovely tins for this gift set. They also do great charitable work.
Pukka Teas are already many people’s favorite, and there are likely a few new flavors for everyone to try in the Pukka gift sets.
This Teavana Craft Variety Pac gives that nice feeling of bringing over a case of something, in this case iced tea!
If you’re dealing with a coffee-loving pal, the Monin flavored syrup gift pack is a great gift maybe paired with a cute mug?
No matter what gift you finally settle on – or even a card with a nice message – your Muslim friend will be touched you thought of them.
