As Eid Al Fitr approaches, thoughts turn to the gifts that traditionally mark the end of Ramadan.
Whether you’re shopping for your family, friends, or loved ones, we’ve rounded up a few ideas designed to show how much you care, no matter what your budget.
For a thoughtful gift that respects the environment, why not offer an olive tree? Planted in Palestine by the charity Human Appeal, it will last for generations and help a family raise funds by growing olives.
At just 76 Dh, it’s good for the planet and the wallet.
Kids will love a bag of ‘icon’ KitKat chocolates, specially designed for Ramadan, while foodies will savor treats like a packet of craft coffee from the UAE’s own coffee company or delicious gazelle pastries in a box of Special tasting of Maison Gazelle at Beldi Bazaar. Or, for a real Ramadan flavor, why not offer a selection box of stuffed dates from Forrey & Galland?
Are you looking for pretty jewelry? Saffron Souk and the new company Terrasuya have a good range, with very reasonable prices, while those who want to splurge should look to Chopard, Tiffany & Co and Damas for something special.
Bloomingdale’s, meanwhile, has a charming set of Anna New York candlesticks that would make a thoughtful gift, while Shopbop offers a set of coasters made from sliced stone for just Dh313.
Another thoughtful gift is a handcrafted beeswax candle from local company Kind By Design. With scents such as vetiver, peony, and basil in pastel glass or ceramic jars, they look almost too good in the light.
Beauty lovers will appreciate the wide range of Hourglass products available on Ounass, while Givenchy, Kilian and the local name Emirates Pride all have interesting scents, which make perfect gifts for loved ones.
