The end of Ramadan - the Muslim holy month of fasting - is almost here, which means Eid is on the horizon.
The UK’s muslim community will have observed two Ramadans under some sort of Covid restrictions by now, but with the pandemic in our rear-view and summer coming up, there’s more cause than ever to celebrate.
While you may be planning a major feast with your household and select friends and family outdoors, it’s also a chance to send gifts to the ones you hold dear.
To that end, we’ve put together an edit of the nicest presents around right now. While money is traditional for children, we’ve added some thoughtful options to really spoil the ones you love, especially if you haven’t seen them in a while.
From new fragrances to luxury confectionery, there’s something for everyone in our Eid gift list.
