Eid Al Fitr 2021 gift idea guide: 35 present suggestions to suit every budget
As Eid Al Fitr approaches, thoughts turn to the gifts that traditionally mark the finish of Ramadan.

Whether you're searching for family, friends or family members, we've put together ideas designed to show just how much you care, whatever your budget.

For a gift that's thoughtful and environmentally conscious, why not offer an olive tree? Planted in Palestine by the charity Human Appeal, this can last for generations and help a family group raise money by farming olives.

At just Dh76, it really is good for the planet and the wallet.

Children will love a bag of KitKat "icon" chocolates, made specifically for Ramadan, while foodies will savour treats like a bundle of artisanal coffee from the UAE's own Raw Coffee Company, or delightful gazelle pastries in a special tasting box by Maison Gazelle at Beldi Bazaar. Or, for a real flavour of Ramadan, why not provide a selection box of filled dates by Forrey & Galland?

Looking for pretty jewellery? The Saffron Souk and new company Terrasuya have an excellent array, with affordable prices, while those attempting to splurge should look to famous brands Chopard, Tiffany & Co and Damas for something special.

Bloomingdale's, meanwhile, includes a charming set of candlesticks by Anna New York that would make a considerate present, while Shopbop has a set of coasters created from slices of stone for Dh313.

Another thoughtful present is a handmade, beeswax candle by local company Kind By Design. With scents such as for example vetiver, peony and basil in either glass or pastel ceramic pots, they are almost too good to light.

Beauty fans will appreciate the large selection of Hourglass cosmetics products available on Ounass, while Givenchy, Kilian and the neighborhood name Emirates Pride all have interesting perfumes, that produce perfect presents for family members.
