Some of the UAE’s biggest social media influencers, fashionistas and lifestyle gurus have shared their professional style tips and personal shopping secrets to help make finding the ideal Eid Al Adha gifts easier than ever.
On the occasion of the four-day celebration, Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), organiser of Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), has teamed up with influential online personalities and innovative content creators to offer shopping advice and inspiration especially for the occasion.
Megan Al Marzooqi, British Emirati founder of Real Mums of Dubai
“This year, gifts for Eid Al Adha need to be affordable as so many people have seen their finances hit hard over the last few months. I like quirky but personal gifts, and I love supporting small local businesses. My top gifts for Eid are beautiful prayer beads made of semi-precious stones by Holly Holistic. The black Hematite beads with a splash of red, or the Lapis Lazuli beads with royal blue hues, are both stunning and make great gifts. At AED129, they are an absolute bargain. My second gift idea is from The Camel Soap Factory and reflects my love of skincare. They offer a gift set priced at just AED185 that contains a facial cream and your choice of three types of soap. Frankincense, sweet orange, olive oil and camel milk are all amazing ingredients that make this little kit so wonderful.”

“A special Eid Al Adha gift would be skincare products that every man or woman needs, especially during the summer when we need to take care of our skin, and also because we want to celebrate Eid by looking healthy, glowing and hydrated. I would also gift the Goolsky Rustic Wooden Eid Party Serving Tray that adds a touch of luxury to any Eid celebration at home.”
