Ramadan starts on 1 April, and the date marks the start when Muslims worldwide abstain from things like food and water between the hours of sunrise and sunset, and it’s a time for reflection and spiritual growth, giving and sharing.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan and the month of fasting, and Muslims often give gifts – traditionally around the time of Eid al-Fitr, which is expected to end on Sunday 1 May, with Eid al-Fitr following on 2 May.

A lovely and familiar Muslim saying, “tahaabu, tahaadu”, translates as “give gifts to spread love to one another.” So often, delicious offerings of food are given, along with charitable donations, tokens of love and Ramadan gifts of appreciation, both great and small.

Along with a gift, the greeting goes: “Eid Mubarak” (Eeed Mooo-Barack). Eid, meaning “celebration,” and Mubarak, meaning “blessed”, which translates to “blessed holiday”.

So, with the greetings nailed, you can also look for details synonymous with the holy season, crescent moons, the Hamsa Hands and foodie morsels like traditional Medjool dates, nuts, and sweets, along with pampering gifts.

The gift of skincare will also be well received as dehydration during the month can impact the skin, partnered with eye care to revive tired eyes from the late-night prayers and early morning Suhoor (the breakfast before dawn).) Try the award-winning Double Serum Eye, in 7 days it works to nourish, firm and depuff. Plus, the gift of a home or personal fragrance will always be appreciated – and is a staple in all cultures.

There’s no better way to celebrate the end of the Muslim holy month than with a selection of inspired Ramadan gift ideas to give friends and loved ones to express gratitude and give thanks – here’s Beauty Daily’s curated selection here.
