Ramadan is a sacred time when hearts are filled with a profound sense of gratitude, and a desire to spread joy to friends, family, and strangers alike is ignited.

Ramadan gifting is a celebration of abundance, gratitude, and unity. A time to pause, reflect, and appreciate the blessings that surround us, both big and small.

As the month of Ramadan unfolds, let us look at some creative and DIY-friendly ways you can elevate your gifting game!

  1. Handcrafted Ramadan Greetings Basket: Maybe your friend isn’t as prepared for this month as you are. How perfect would it be if you provided them with a basket of essential knick knacks for Ramadan? It could be food items they might need this month, such as dates, dry fruits, light snacks to break their fast with, or essential prayer items like prayer beads or mats. Preparing this is not only cost-friendly but will come in handy throughout Ramadan.
  2. An Essential Iftar Kit: A mouth-watering box of delights! Hit them with the aromatic fragrance first before they feast their eyes on a variety of ready-to-eat snacks and appetizers, such as tasty samosas and delicious spring rolls. For hydration, don’t forget to add a hydrating, sugar-free drink such as refreshing fruit juices, iced tea, or sparkling water. Top it off with traditional Ramadan desserts like kunafa, baklava, or qatayef for a sweet indulgent after iftar.
  3. Personalized EID Mubarak Basket: Are you the type to go just a little bit extra? Simply a fruit basket won’t do. You like going all out for your Ramadan gifts, putting in the extra effort no matter what. Adding a personalized, creative touch to your gifts can seem like a task sometimes, but it could definitely get easier by implementing some of these ideas.

    – Scented Ramadan Candles: Easy and creative. Personalize each candle with different scents and decorations to add an elegant touch.

    – Handcrafted Ramadan Cards: Create and personalize your own Ramadan greeting card with heartfelt messages and a Quranic verse to warm hearts and souls.

    – Ramadan Blessing Jar: Often too busy with life, we tend to brush aside the blessings we receive. Gift your friends and family the gift of gratitude by encouraging them to write down grateful moments or prayers and slip them into this jar throughout the month.

    – Hand-painted Gifts: A gift to be cherished forever. Paint intricate designs inspired by Islamic art and calligraphy or Quranic verses on any product of your choice, such as ceramic plates or on a canvas.
