Eid marks the end of Ramadan; this is when Muslims worldwide end their month-long fast. This celebration carries a distinctive meaning and spirit in Islam. Family and friends gather over meals, attend processions and celebrations, and spend time together. It’s tradition to share gifts with children and family members to mark the festivity of Eid. This year, I worked with my blogging friends to share these 7 Handmade Gifts to Celebrate Eid.
Homemade Self Care Gifts for Eid
Self care products are one of my favourite gifts to give, I love getting creative and being able to share something that I’ve made myself. Adding a personal touch to these gifts makes them so special. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Homemade bath salts are always one of my go-to handmade gifts. With just a few simple ingredients and about five minutes, you can whip up a batch in no time. Try this easy to follow recipe for Quick & Easy Homemade Bath Salts over at Jessica Welling Interiors.
Another great self care gift idea is homemade soap. Check out this recipe from 2 Bees in a Pod for DIY all natural lavender soap – I love lavender!
These DIY Holly Golightly Sleep Masks from PMQ for Two are so cute. I think they would make a great addition to a gift basket along another self care product, or perhaps an essential oil pillow spray to encourage a good night sleep.
Other Homemade Gifts for Eid
Homemade jewelry is always a great option. You can take this gift to the next level by presenting it in a small box with tissue or in a drawstring bag to make it feel more luxurious. Here is an easy to follow tutorial for DIY tassel earrings from Charleston Crafted.
This is such a cool idea! These DIY Coasters with Sharpies and Alcohol from Jessica Welling Interiors look amazing. I love that each one is unique and the colour choices are endless, making it easy to match with any décor.
The gift of Desserts and Indulgences for Eid
Eid for our family is filled with quintessential desserts like Kheer, Sheer Khorma, Seviyan and so much more. This layered dessert is what I think of when I think of low-time-investment, but HIGH impact desserts. You can whip them up the night before, freeing up time on the day of Eid, and impress ANYONE. Here are 2 of my favourite dessert recipes.
A Quarant-EID Dessert – Dulce de Leche dessert jars
I love a good no-bake dessert like this Creamy No-Bake Tiramisu.
