Celebrate Joy and Tradition This Eid al-Adha with L'Araboutique Gifting

What does Eid mean to me?

Let me take you back in time to my hometown, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where my childhood Eid celebrations would start with cleansing and perfuming ourselves for prayer, and would end in dressing in our finest, feasting together and beach-side festivities overlooking pristine blue seas. 

My memories of Eid in Jeddah are this. Rose perfume and oud incense fills the air, the hems of silk abayas sweep across the floors, and plates of sweet dates, home-made bread and grilled meat line the tables. Cardamom-laced coffee is being poured into intricate cups, passed around while traditional music and laughter fills my ears. Eid al-Adha is a time for families to reunite, share blessings, and exchange gifts that embody appreciation.

Fast forward to today. I’m preparing ahead for Eid next month in the beautiful British countryside, where I now call home, far away from Saudi Arabia. Many Muslims will celebrate in different ways, as per individual cultures, but my plan is still the same: to bring the vibrant customs of the Middle East into my home. I’ll be sharing my traditions with friends from all walks of life. After all, this is a time to come together for celebration, togetherness and giving.

From the inception of L'Araboutique, sharing the timelessness of Middle Eastern heritage has always been our focus, and so we thought very carefully when choosing the items that would go into our gifting guide. Each gift is inspired by Arabian Eid rituals that offer a journey into the heart of tradition.
