RAMADAN & EID GIFT GUIDE
The best time of year is approaching for Muslims, Ramadan. A month for fasting, reflecting, and practising their faith. For many around the world, it'll be difficult without embracing the love of family and friends with ongoing COVID restrictions.
After Ramadan comes the joyous Eid ul Fitr. Traditionally celebrated for three days and still the case in most Muslim countries. Eid is a beautiful festival to celebrate the end of Ramadan and includes lots of feasts, gift giving and social gatherings.
So the main reason why you’re here…
Since starting an Instagram account with Noor Aromas I’ve come across some amazing Muslim businesses and connected with the wonderful women behind them. I want to share their products in hope that it may inspire you for your Eid gifts. What’s better is most of them are Muslim owned - so of course it’s packed with lots of love and duas.
I hope you find something for everyone here.
Al Houb Dates - tried, tested and loved by Noor Aromas HQ, and proud to be a repeat customer. Dates are super special in Islam and usually eaten to break the fast with in Ramadan.
