We've officially made it to the halfway mark of Ramadan, and while I've been focusing on the priorities of the month (reflecting, resetting, and reconnecting), I can't help but also mentally prepare for Eid al-Fitr, which always comes faster than I expect. It's when we'll be spending even more quality time with loved ones and, of course, blessing them with gifts to celebrate the occasion. But there's no denying that, despite how well you might know a person, it can be difficult to find just the right gift, something that's thoughtful, meaningful, budget friendly, etc. My family and I have been doing a gift exchange on Eid since I was a child, and that alongside my job has made me a bit of a pro at navigating the best things to buy. (I once wrote four gift guides in one month, and yes, I completely enjoyed it.)

Whether you're shopping for the sibling that has the pickiest taste, parents who say they don't want anything but really want something, or the friends you spent the most time with, the gift guide below is a great place to start. Keep scrolling to shop all the high-joy gems to give to your loved ones this Eid. From unique homewares made by small businesses to aromatic candles available at your local Target, there's something on this list for everyone.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
