The Art of Giving: A Eid Al-Adha Gift Guide

A gift for everyone

Eid Al-Adha is just a few days away. When we were around five to 14 years of age, Eid was probably the most anticipated time of the year because that meant we were about to receive gifts in all shapes and sizes from various family members, whether it was a $10 bill or the newest tamagotchi— the excitement was unmatched. 

But as you get older, I think you start to appreciate the little things about the holiday, beyond receiving all the gifts, and the 3edeya’s (a tradition that dictates that the older members of the family give a sum of money of their choosing to the younger members). You start to appreciate waking up early in the morning for the Eid prayer with your family, bumping into almost everyone in your neighborhood on your way to the mosque, the traditional Eid tunes ringing throughout the street, and the constant kol sana wenta/wenti tayeb/tayeba as you pass by anyone. As you grow older, you start to understand that Eid isn’t just about receiving gifts, it is also about the beautiful sentiment of giving– from the simplest to the grandest of presents. 

Behold a gift guide, for anyone thinking of gifting a sibling, a parent, a friend, or a significant other. Master the art of giving this Eid Al-Adha with an abundance of options satisfying both your hypebeast teenage brother, and your older sister that enjoys her sleep a little too much.
