Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting and reflection. Eid is a time for celebration, gratitude, enjoying delicious food and exchanging gifts.
If you’re planning to host a special Eid celebration, you’re in the right place! Scroll our blog to find tips and tricks on how to plan a fun Eid party that everyone will love. Whether you’re celebrating with your family, friends or local community, we’re here to help you create a wholesome atmosphere to make Eid a truly unforgettable experience.
Let’s Make Eid Extra Special!
Celebrating Eid is a joyous occasion and a great chance to create memories to cherish with your nearest and dearest.
There are plenty of magical ways to make Eid special, from embracing traditions and dressing up to decorating your home.
Here at George, we love bringing the inspo and so we’ve pulled together ideas to help make this Eid the best yet!
Add a festive touch to your home by decorating it with colourful balloons, streamers, and new ornaments. You can get creative and make your own decorations like bright paper chains and beautiful bunting. It’s a great way to keep the kids entertained!
Bring magical vibes to your home with Eid lanterns. You can either place them inside or scatter them outdoors. We have plenty of shimmering choices across our decorating lighting collection.
Create a warm and welcoming glow with lighting, and when you’re ready to eat, lay a striking centrepiece on your table. Think fresh flowers, candles and other decorations you can find at home.
Delicious Eid Food
With Eid celebrations comes plenty of food – yum! Prepare a special meal for your family and friends or organise a potluck where everyone brings their favourite dish. It’s a fun (and super-yum!) way to sample home cooking and explore different cuisines.
Of course, grown-ups take the role of head chef, but little helpers can get involved too by setting the table. You could even encourage them to make personalised place cards – such a charming touch! This simple gesture gives your guests something sentimental to take home to remind them of a wonderful time together.
Wonderful Eid Gift Ideas
Passing on gifts is a thoughtful way to express love and appreciation for those around us. Exchange Eid gifts with your loved ones and make the day even more special.
Here at George, we’ve got plenty of Eid presents for all the family, so you can keep the entire gang happy.
For little adventurers, pay our toys and character collection a visit and discover exciting games your kids will love. For younger children, we’ve got plenty of engaging baby and toddler toys to encourage their development and gift them hours of entertainment.
Grown-ups, don’t worry, we’ve not forgotten about you! Why not treat the special lady in your life to a delightful perfume or fragrance or treat a dapper dude to a men’s grooming kit, that will have him looking fresh on the big day.
Dress For The Occasion
Little ones will love dressing up in smart boys’ polo shirts and dreamy girls’ dresses. In a myriad of designs and in sizes to suit all, you’re sure to find an outfit your mini fashionista will adore.
Score points for glam with glitzy dresses in bright and bold prints. Look out for maxi and floor-length designs and complete your look with a pair of slingback heels and chic accessories.
Awesome Eid Games
Round off your Eid day celebrations with fun-filled Eid games! Reach for the classics with long adored board games and puzzles – perfect for keeping the gang together (and teens off their tablets!). If you fancy getting creative, put a festive spin on traditional party games by challenging family and friends to Eid Bingo or race around the house for hidden treats in an Eid scavenger hunt.
No matter which Eid games you choose to play, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy time spent with loved ones. So, gather your family and friends, and let the games begin!
Vow To Volunteer
Celebrate Eid in a kindhearted way and give back to your local community. Consider volunteering at a local shelter or charity organisation to help those in need.
A smart way to teach children about the importance of giving is by helping them to put together a shoebox gift. They can fill boxes with small toys, toiletries and cosy socks.
The build-up to Eid is also the perfect time to organise a decluttering. For any clothes you plan to recycle, check out our Take Back recycling scheme, which raises funds for our Tickled Pink charity partners.
