Eid Gift Guide 2021
Wow and just like that, Ramadan is almost at an end! It’s most definitely been an interesting Ramadan; we haven’t been able to meet our family and friends for iftar, go out to our favourite restaurant as many are still closed and we’ve just been feeling sluggish in general! Well, we’ve got a great way to spruce you up: here’s our annual Eid gift guide filled with great gift ideas that are a bound to put a smile on your recipient’s face.
We’ve put together three gift guides for you – for him, her, and him and her – plus an exciting extra bonus section on gift wrapping (trust me, wrapping paper has never gotten us so excited before). Click below to take you straight there!

The HGAT Eid Gift Guide 2021
There’s no such thing as owning too many thobes – they are more comfy than a pair of sweats after all! Opt for one of the suave thobes on the CAVE London website where you can choose the best size and length to suit him.
Beard Care Kit
Has he decided to keep the lockdown look going forward? Then this beard care kit will keep his newfound love looking sleek, smooth and shiny! The kit contains beard oil, beard comb, beard wash, butter and grooming kit. You can choose from 3 scents: cedarwood, sandalwood, and vanilla and mango, and even choose to get the box personalised.
VILASA Gentlemen’s Tonic Men’s Spa At Home Set
Seeing as spas haven’t been open for most of the lasty year, this spa at home set by Vilasa Boutique will have him feeling fresh, invigorated and ready to face his day of WFH. Used in many luxury hotels, the VILASA range is known to consist of high quality, premium products and incorporates essential oils and natural ingredients.
Tom Ford Ombre Leather
A Tom Ford cologne is a classic and we are absolutely loving the scent of the ombre leather parfum. With notes of cardamom, patchouli, black leather and amber, this is most certainly a spicy one.
Vintage Map of Islamic Countries
Is his office wall looking sparse? Here is a fantastic print of a vintage map of Islamic countries that would look absolutely fantastic behind his desk. The map comes in either canvas or heavy matte paper so you’ll just need to find a great frame for it. It may arrive a little later than Eid but it will be worth the wait
Wearing a tasbih at all times is always a great idea so why not buy him a nice stylish one that would go with everything and anything. We are loving this 33 bead gun metal grey one from Safar London that is made with high quality heavy weighted beads.
Is a supercar on his list of dream purchases? Well you can make that wish come true with buying him the LEGO version. Sure, it’s not the same thing, not even close but it’s a fun activity for him to do when he’s not working and a great keepsake for his desk! If cars aren’t his thing, you can get him a Friends Central Perk cafe set, NASA and even landmarks.
BAHA Prayer Mat
This portable prayer mat will make his life easier if he’s on the go – school trip, backpacking, work trip – as it can just slot right into his backpack or even his pocket. It is lightweight and comes with an elastic band to help keep it tightly packed.
We are absolutely in love with these Islamic stationary sets from Handmade by Hawra. The Inshallah Notepad is our favourite as it features a daily schedule, a space to write a positive affirmation and what you’re grateful for.
Desmond and Dempsey Pyjamas
Add some pizzazz to her sleepwear – no, we don’t mean the saucy stuff – and purchase a pair of these super comfortable, premium cotton Desmond and Dempsey pyjamas for her. They have a range of prints available so you’re bound to find one that she’ll love plus you can get a matching pair for the kids too.
Hijab with Magnetic Pin
Hijabs are always a winner when it comes to presents as there are so many different styles and looks available that your recipient will rarely have two of the same. Pair it with the super duper strong magnetic pins from Aab.
You can never go wrong with too many prayer mats in the house which is why we love these beautiful soft marble-print prayer mats. They come in three colours: midnight blue, sunset red or starlight white.
Penhaligons Scent Library
Looking to send something fancy to all of your girlfriends without breaking the bank? This Penhaligon Scent Library comes with all their trademark scents in small bottles meaning she can have a little taster of all they have to offer. A cute Eid stocking idea!
This beautiful embroidered abaya from Aab will be perfect for the garden Eid gathering she is planning on attending.
Milina London is an independent jewellery brand that is based in London that sell stunning and affordable pieces of jewellery to the masses. They have teamed up with Yumtaz, a food brand, to bring you a lovely Eid gift that contains a pair of Milina earrings and a small box of Yumtaz’s salted caramel and quinoa stuffed medjool dates. A fantastic concept that can be posted to your loved ones all over the country.
Nuhr Home Bestseller Box
Most of us love it when the house smells of oud and perhaps it has a more nostalgia feeling for some of us (wedding time, childhood home etc) which is why we love this Nuhr Home Gift box as it contains three items: oud cones, oud candle and an oud reed diffuser so that your home can smell fabulous all the time. All three items have a different fragrance note from Eastindian sandalwood with Indonesian patchouli to an amber, musk, vanilla and raspberry scent.
Jo Malone Cologne
For Eid, Jo Malone have released a beautiful new scent: the Iris White Musk cologne with notes of iris root, casablanca lily and white musk. You can opt for their other scents like the Myrrh and Tonka or the Velvet Rose and Oud as part of their Eid collection and they will come adorned with a lovely pearl moon charm as part of a collaboration with Turquoise Mountain who work with artisans in the Middle East and Asia.
Islamic Stickers for Journaling
Do you have a bullet journal lover in the family? Then these fabulous Islamic themed stickers would be the ultimate present for them to add to their journals. They’re fun, quirky and absolutely pleasing to the eye, plus are made by independent and small Muslim businesses!
Ramadan Beauty Calendar
A few brands have released Ramadan beauty calendars this year with some especially focused on the last ten days of Ramadan. Here are a couple that we are loving:
- HUDA Beauty’s 1001 Nights calendar contains 10 of their most coveted beauty products. From scrubs to masks to liquid lipsticks, this beauty calendar was designed to spruce you up in time for Eid. Buy here.
- L’occitane – whilst this was for the whole 30 days, theres no harm in gifting them this lovely calendar for Eid as they’ll be able to use all of these amazing products post ramadan. Buy here.
MarocMaroc Nourishing Shampoo and Hair Mask Set
Perhaps one of the best smelling shampoos on the market, the marocMaroc range is made using sweet almond milk, orange blossom and argan oil to ensure a healthy, strong head of hair.
Start With Bismillah Print
We’ve been loving Start With Bismillah’s Islamic prints that are both fun and quirky. They’ll brighten up any bedroom and you can even get some of them in a pillow case format! Here are a couple of designs that we love.

Dodow Sleep Aid
With over 500,000 users, the Dodow sleeping aid device clearly seems to be working. It reteaches you how to fall asleep naturally and helps you regain 100 hours of missed sleep in a year – wow!
Journaling has become the new it-thing and it is here to stay thanks to all of its’ amazing benefits like it being a form of meditation, helping you to practice gratitude, reducing stress and anxiety and plenty, plenty more. Jeem have taken it a step further with their Islamic journal in which you can track your prayers, map your life out and a Night of Qadr Destiny Drive tool to help you make the most the auspicious nights in Ramadan. We love the minimalist design.
Dar Collective stock a great range of apparel that reflect our collective cultures, whether that is Pakistani, Palestinian or Malaysian. We absolutely love their designs and the ethos behind the brand.
Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser Machine
Be away with the powdered hot chocolate and water from the kettle type of drink and go for this Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser. It does what is says – velvetises your hot chocolate by using cold milk and grated chocolate so that you can have that same rich, luxury Hotel Chocolate experience in the comfort of your own home.
Plants are known for their fantastic calming, mood-boosting properties. They are also great at purifying the indoor air as they absorb up all of the toxins.
With the weather getting warmer – we type as the rain pours down – you’ll be having more garden gatherings with your friends and family. Skip ordering the usual Franco Manca and Domino’s and have a go at making your own fresh wood-fired pizza from this fantastic pizza oven! It doesn’t require too much space and can cook a whole pizza in less than 60 seconds.
