Eid dates in 2018
There are two Eid festivals celebrated in the Muslim faith:
- Eid Al–Fitr – 14-15th June 2018
At the end of Ramadan fasting, Eid celebrations take the form of family gatherings with lots of food, memorable celebrations and gifts.
- Eid Al–Adha – 21st – 25th August 2018
Festivities start on the 10th day of Dhu al-Hijjah (the last month in the Islamic calendar.) It is also the same month that the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca takes place.
Gift ideas for Eid
If you’re looking for Eid gifts for family and friends, usually it’s the small sentimental things that count just an much as the lavish expensive presents.
We’ve found these tasty, colourful ‘Eid Mubarak’ Belgian chocolates from Not On The High Street which are perfect as a gift or even to share with others during the celebrations. Suitable for vegetarians and smartly packaged so your message is revealed through a window in the box.
For children, this Islamic book teaches them all about Ramadan through a rhyming story. It’s from Ibraheem Toy House based in Reading, UK, but ships around the World.
If you decide to give money as a gift, we wrote a post recently about making little origami envelopes made from Wedding Giftwrap which can give you some inspiration.

You can choose the colour of the paper (here it is Pearl) and the font type and colour (here it is Arro font and Gold foil)
We also have a copper foil font, which looks super on black wrapping paper, this example of personalised wrapping paper uses the ‘monster’ font, which looks more handwritten.

Using personalised giftwrap for Eid celebration decorations
We’re a big fan of upcycling and recycling, so we recommend that any surplus giftwrap could be used to decorate Eid cards or personalise some bunting. Simply cut out the words and glue them onto the front.
