Confused on the Best Eid Gift for Kids ?
Here are few Recommendations:
Eid is the day of Joy and Happiness . On this Day the Elder member of the family give eidi (eid gift) to the younger member . Eidi need not be a big gift but it is a token of Love .It can be anything . The One big reason why kids are excited about the Eid is “Eidi ” . When I was a Kid ,I remember how we would make a Kids gang and visit our Uncles and other relatives and everyone would give us eidi .We used to keep a track of our eidi and compete with other Kids-“Who got more ” 🙂 And at the end of the day all the eidi would be taken away by mumma or another elder sibling . Did it happen to you too ?
Now that I have grown to be a Mommy , I realise that it is better to give some educational gifts to the kids rather than to give them money . I researched on the net and believe me there are lots and lots of Islamic educational stuffs you can gift to the kids and some of them are at such a low price that you will end up saving your money . Well Money is not always a factor but who doesn’t like saving money and giving a better gift .
Here are few finds :
