Religious Books & CDs
As the Eid-ul-Fitr comes on the heels of Ramadan, the great religious Muslim occassion, religious books and music CDs can be great gifts for the festival. Purchase your presents according to the interest of your recipients and the artist he/she likes to hear. It will be nice to make some clever research beforehand by a seemingly harmless chat with the person concerned. It is a good idea to gift a Quran to your loved ones, as it makes for a present to be cherished and has great educational and spiritual significance.
Sweets for Eid
Eid is a sweet occassion and sweets are inseperably linked to the festival. Karanchi Halwa, Sewaiyan, China Burki, Patisa, Baklava and Kesar Burfi are some of the most popular sweets related to the occassion. Buy a nice gift wrapped box of any of these delicious items. You can even cook some "Sevai/Semoi" or "Punjeeri" at home, carefully pack it and hand over as a sweet gift to your loved ones.
Apparels are popular gift items for almost every festival. Eid is the time when everyone goes on to purchase new clothes and you can safely gift new apparels to your dear ones. Go for traditional chikan kurtas and sherwanis for men and suits, sarees, lehengas or shararas for women. If you are adventurous, you can even buy some jeans and casual cottonwear for male members and designer apparels for young women. It is a good idea to gift white clothes, which symbolize peace.
Dry Fruits & Chocolates
You can get readymade boxes of dry fruits and chocolates in the local markets. Get these wrapped in beautful wrapping papers, add a greeting card onto it with a personal message and send it off!
You can always fall back on this primitive gift if you feel all else are going to be a damper. Besides, your little cousins and the kids in your family will always be expecting their 'Idi". Hence you should keep some extra bucks as well as envelopes close to you. Put the money inside the envelopes, write the names of your recipients on each of them and hand over.
Electronic Gadgets, Jewelleries, Video Games, Stuffed Toys etc.
