As the beloved month of Ramadan draws to a close, Eid celebrations can begin.

Ramadan and Eid for kids is a special time as it is an introduction to the traditions of Islam, and when gifts are exchanged.

From a delicious feast to spending quality time with loved ones, the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr brings many rewards and is a time that many Muslims look forward to all year round – especially our children!

Of course, this is because another Eid tradition involves giving gifts to children. Whether it is toys, sweets, new clothes or money, the younger generation typically receive gifts and treats at Eid. Many struggle to decide on what Eid presents are right for their kids, battling between traditional options and more contemporary choices. Regardless, there’s no doubt that a well-chosen present will be both memorable and appreciated by your loved ones.

The Prophet (PBUH) said:

Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another.”
-Al-Bukhari

Eid Present Ideas 

When searching for gifts to give during Eid for your little ones, it is only natural that you want to find something they will love and appreciate. You should also consider giving meaningful gifts, such as donating in their name to a worthy cause, alongside other materialistic presents. The celebration that comes after Ramadan for kids is an ideal time to teach them the importance of giving to those less fortunate than them. This will make for a fantastic Eid gift for him or her. 

Millions of children around the world will not be opening presents this Eid-ul-Fitr, which is one of the facts for kids to learn in Ramadan prior to the celebrations at the end of the Holy month as this will allow them to appreciate what they have even more.

Eid for Vulnerable Communities

As you and your loved ones celebrate Eid, it’s important to remember the less fortunate who are suffering and in need. In particular, we must keep in mind the most vulnerable people – children, orphans and widows. During Eid, these people and their families can find themselves struggling to celebrate and give any gifts at all, with many struggling just to survive.

This reminds us of a verse from a poem by Abu Tayeb Al-Mutanabbi asking if Eid will, “be the same [grief and sorrow], or will it be a sign of a new day?”

Eid Gifts for the World’s Vulnerable Children

By supporting our UK Islamic Mission appeal, you can give one of the most important Eid gifts for kids, widowed mothers and struggling families: the gift of happiness in otherwise dire times. Just a small donation can help us provide gift packs for those in need, each filled with everyday essentials, clothes, shoes and toys for children to enjoy. 

Enjoying ourselves and celebrating Eid does not make us forget about our less fortunate brothers and sisters. Indeed, it only amplifies our desire to offer as much help and support as we possibly can, for none of us truly believes until we love for our brother what we love for ourselves. 

This Eid, open yourself up to greater reward and blessings when you selflessly give to those in need. The difference that you can make to someone that you will likely never meet will bring its rewards to you, as well as the warm feeling inside that comes with helping someone in need. 

We humbly invite you to donate a gift for an orphan this Eid; an orphan who may never meet you, but who will always remember you as a kind and compassionate donor.
