Make this Eid al-Fitr extra special with thoughtful gifts for friends, family, and loved ones

Explore our Eid gift ideas and make this year more memorable than ever!

As the end of Ramadan approaches, so too does the time of fasting and reflection. With Eid al-Fitr just around the corner, you might be looking forward to celebrating with loved ones and getting ready for an Iftar gathering. For many, Eid al-Fitr 2022 is extra special. The COVID-19 pandemic meant that lots of people were unable to spend Eid together and exchange gifts the past couple of years.

If you’re wondering what to get friends and family to mark the occasion, we have plenty of Eid gift ideas to inspire you!

Eid al-Fitr gift ideas

From traditional gift baskets to personalised presents, here are some Eid gift ideas your loved ones will adore on the 2nd of May.

Delicious gift baskets

If you’d like to keep your Eid gifts traditional, you can’t go wrong with a basket filled to the brim with tasty goodies! Whether you choose something for your loved one to take home with them or a collection to share with the community, why not put together a fabulous hamper?

Curating your own means you can tailor the selection to your recipients. Traditional options include:

  • Dates
  • Fruit cakes
  • Halva
  • Honey
  • Pistachios and almonds
  • Dried fruits

You could also add halal sweets, luxury Dunking Biscuits, and tea or hot chocolate for an extra treat. Just remember to make sure that all the items in your hamper are free from gelatine.

Eid chocolates

Another tasty treat you could add to your hampers is a selection of premium chocolate. At Hotel Chocolat, we have an array of Eid chocolates that are sure to make your loved ones smile. From tangy Enrobed Cranberries coated in creamy white chocolate to an irresistible Dark Fix Poket Selection, our petite but satisfying nibbles will add the finishing touch to your hamper.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a standalone gift, our Signature Collection contains 15 of our most popular classic recipes. Meanwhile, the Everything Chocolate Gift Hamper Collection is an elegant box filled with Salted Caramel Puddles, three nano slabs, our Billionaire Shortbread Selector, and more. A gorgeous gold Eid gift sleeve adds a final touch of luxury.

And if you’re really feeling generous, you might even treat the family to the Velvetiser — our impressive hot chocolate maker. This handy gadget provides barista-grade hot drinks at home at the touch of a button.

Looking for Eid gift ideas to send to friends and family far away? If you’re unable to get together in person this year, send them a treat from afar. Take a look at our delivery options for more information.

Please note that, although our products for Eid do not contain alcohol or gelatine, we do handle alcohol in our factory. Therefore, we are not Halal certified.

Baked goodies

If you want to really make your Eid gifts bespoke, you could bake some delicious cakes and desserts to share around the table. Putting your own cakes and bakes together ensures you can source Halal ingredients. Plus, it can be a fun process!

A charity donation

In the past, money was a popular Eid gift. If you’d like to give a financial gift that’s got more of a personal touch, you could always make a charity donation on behalf of your friend or loved one. Think about a cause that’s close to your recipient’s heart, perhaps a local charity, and pay a sum alongside your Zakat al-Fitr.

Creative activities

Looking for Eid gift ideas for the kids? Why not keep them happy with a variety of creative activities?

Little ones will love getting stuck into an Eid colouring book, while older kids might appreciate learning a new skill. A calligraphy set is a great choice, as is a stunning journal. By providing your loved one with blank pages and a writing instrument, you’ll give them a space to express themselves, plan ahead, and reflect on their day.

Beautiful jewellery and accessories

Accessories are a lovely way to show your loved ones how much you care this Eid. Jewellery items, such as bracelets and necklaces are a sure-fire winner. However, you could also look at watches or handbags.
