Eid is a special time of year for Muslim families in countries around the world. If you have left the shopping to the last minute, you might be panicking about what you need to buy. It can be really difficult to think about shopping when you haven’t had any food or water, so here we have made the ultimate guide to help you shop and prepare for celebrating Eid.
If you can, shopping online is a great way to make things a bit easier. You can find a range of goods at your fingertips, and you can shop during the evening when you are well fed and feeling more comfortable. There are many great websites where you can buy everything you need to make your Eid celebrations special. Malls can be a good choice if you are looking to get things from a lot of different stores, as everything will be within close reach.
One of the most important things to buy for Eid is the perfect outfit. It’s a great day to dress up in traditional attire, so stores can get really busy. If possible, we recommend planning what you need to buy in advance so you don’t have to deal with crowds, if you won’t be buying online.
You might wish to choose some traditional Islamic gifts for family members on this special day. There are loads of gifts to choose from, so you can find something unique for all members of the family. You can also find a range of cards to give to family members to celebrate Eid, and even gift wrap to make your presents look great. There are even calendars available to help mark the countdown during Ramadan, and help get everyone looking forward to celebrating Eid.
There are a range of home decorations available to help get your house ready for an Eid feast. You can choose banners, lights, balloons and gift bags. There are even Eid-themed paper plates and cups available, which is great for saving on the cleaning up after having lots of friends and family round to celebrate.
It can become quite expensive when buying things to celebrate Eid, so we recommend having a budget in place before you begin. It’s easy to overspend if you’re not careful – take care when using credit cards in particular. If shopping at a fair or market, don’t be scared to try and haggle to get a better deal.…
