You don’t want to miss Our Minimal Eid Breakfast Spread!!
I hope you are doing great. We are fine here. Alhamdulillah. This post is in continuation with my Instagram stories I shared around the time of Eid Al Adha 2020. Today I’m going to share how we filled our Eid Gift bags. Here’s how we filled our Eid gift bags:
PLAN IT OUT
To start with, I highly recommend you to have a plan. Sit down and write down a list of things you need to buy, and the stores where they are available at a reasonable. If you are making many bags you will obviously need multiples of the same item so make a count and shop accordingly.
PACK EVERYTHING BEFOREHAND
You don’t want to sit with bags full of stuff on Eid day. You want to enjoy Eid more than anything. So definitely pack Eid bags more prior to Eid.
GET YOUR KIDS INVOLVED
Getting your kids involved isn’t just important but also necessary. By doing so, your children will understand the meaning of giving and spreading joy. Although they may not by the most expensive of the presents, they will still learn a lesson for life.
THINGS YOU COULD ADD TO EID GIFT BAG
I love picking up a number of small items that can easily fit in our bag gift bag. Things like small toys, chocolates, balloons, candies, craft supplies or stationery. Think simple, think joy. Basically anything that would make children a little more happy.
MAKE IT A TRADITION
Eid comes only twice every year. We do this every Eid Al Adha so it’s a little precious tradition that we have started after moving to Qatar. Alhamdulillah.
We have been doing every year and it makes Eid so much more special for our family, especially kids because they eagerly look forward to disturbing Eid bags to their friends in neighbourhood with so much enthusiasm.
I hope you enjoyed reading this article. I also hope you take this tradition up and enjoy with your children.

Oh I remember back in Kuwait we used to get Eidi from the aunts and uncles and would wait to check if there was some money in the bag. Sometimes there would be and we would be ecstatic!!

You are so creative. Loved the jute bags. They look so cute. I love those erasers too. I remember gifting Cat in the Hat theme erasers and the kid loved it.

That is so sweet! Visiting my friends on Eid when I was a child, meant getting cash as Eidi, but this is the such a great way of making the occasion personalised and special.

The little lamb jute bags stole the show for me. I am sure kids loved it as well. Keeping everything packed with kids essential and favourite item is the best way to enjoy festivals with ease.

These nick nack items make a perfect gift to fill goodie bags for kids and really exited them too. I had done the same for my daughter for her bday goody bag.
Kids love gifts and what better way to give them than in such cute jute bags! This would work well for birthday parties and return gifts too.
