3 Ethical Eid Gift Ideas for Women

Written by Iman Said


With the start of Dhul Hijjah and with just days to go before Eid ul Adha, many of us will spend the next week leading up to Arafat Day indulging in various acts of worship in sha Allah. But Eid is also a time to celebrate, so for those of you frantically looking for gift ideas, our gift ideas series is just what you need! If you’re reading this because you need to buy a gift for your wife, mother, sister, daughter, niece, grandmother or aunt – here are three easy gift ideas for women, all under $30, to help you in your search for that perfect gift:


1. Hand painted artwork with a message

Paper + Chaos, run by sisters Amira and Farhana, offers beautiful hand painted artwork and notebooks for the women in your life. Their notebooks would be ideal for a budding writer or student, or even a busy mum who needs to keeps to keep track of important dates and schedules.

Choose from several of their watercolour Islamic paintings (shipping is free!) and add a frame to suit your décor. Paper and Chaos also sell Islamic-themed badges, which are brilliant for younger girls or students who love dotting their bags and clothing with badges.

2. Clothing, scarves & accessories

Autumn is round the corner, so why not add to your loved ones’ Autumn wardrobes with a selection of tops, hijabs and hijab accessories. You’ll be spoilt for choice! They also have lovely Eid Mubarak candles on offer that are very affordable. If you are based in Melbourne, you can even pop into their store to make your purchases in person.

3. Books

For the bookworms in your life, Darussalam has a wonderful selection of books from gifts for the new Muslim mother, to Quran teaching guides, and a even a whole section dedicated to novels for teens that will uplift young Muslimahs and offer them alternatives to other reading material that perhaps isn’t as beneficial. All the reading material is competitively priced so you could purchase quite a lot for very little, which is always helpful when those gift lists are longer than expected.

We hope you find some of these suggestions useful! Don’t forget to share it on Facebook and Whatsapp with your friends and family so they can benefit as well in sha Allah! Oh, and if you are wondering why we haven’t made gift suggestions for men and the kids, just keep watching this space!
