Struggling to find Eid gifts they’ll love? Whether they’re a beauty fanatic or gadget-obsessed, this handy buyer’s guide has everyone covered

After a month of fasting for Ramadan, Eid is a time of celebration for the Muslim community, when people get ready for a day of fun, feasting and getting together with family.

Eid al-Fitr translates to mean “the festival of breaking the fast”, and is a time of celebration, giving thanks and reconnecting with family.

As one of our favourite bakers, Nadiya Hussain, explains, “this is the Eid where we fast for a month beforehand”.

“The restraint and discipline you have to adopt in this month is, for me, mind perplexing and life changing every year,” she adds. “After a month of really taking time to reflect, when this wonderful time arrives we like to celebrate it by sharing presents with all the children and grown-ups alike. It’s a wonderful moment to spoil everyone, as we’ve all been fasting together as a team and as a family.”

As Nadiya mentions, one of the Eid traditions is buying Eid gifts for family and loved ones, but when you’re juggling work, school runs and fasting, it’s easy to leave things to the last minute.

That’s why we’ve put together this gift guide. So, after a busy month of fasting, it’s time to explore our Eid present ideas, with plenty of inspiration for gifts that are pampering, practical, and most importantly, fun (so they won’t tire of them before the wrapping paper hits the floor!).

Whether it’s fragrances for first timers, or gadget inspiration, our guide full of gift ideas for Eid ul-Fitr will help you find that perfect present for your loved ones. There are Boots gift cards, which will put a smile on anyone’s face, and you can also pick up a range of thoughtful presents they can take joy in unwrapping.
