It’s that time of the year again! On June 28, the world will celebrate Eid al-Adha, a festival that this year will result in a six-day break in the UAE, and as always brings the opportunity for one to spend quality time with friends and family. If you, however, are yet to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, Vogue Arabia’s got you covered.
Among this year’s best festive gifts, the Sonos Era 100 speaker stands out for being one of the most exciting gadgets you can treat your favorite people to. The sleek black humidity resistant speaker—which is voice enabled, can connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and also comes with touch controls—isn’t just bound to come in handy this Eid, it also promises to become your best friend for future celebrations. Got a beauty junkie in your group? Another tech treat worth checking out is Dyson’s new limited edition 23.75 karat gold Supersonic hair dryer, which takes hairstyling to a new, decadent high.
For the fashion crew, there’s much to pick from this Eid. Treat your bestie to L’afshar’s acrylic green bag, or Anita Dongre’s intricately embroidered version doused in exotic flora and fauna. Bottega Veneta’s knotted key ring is an all-time favorite, while Lily Phellera’s kimono gown serves as an investment-worthy staple. Going the jewelry route, Bil Arabi’s ‘For Your Eyes’ pendant is a winning choice for the special someone in your life, be it a parent, sibling or sigificant other, and Bymystique’s Moonshine locket works beautifully for the occasion at hand. Other must-see picks include Al Masati by Hiba Jaber’s emerald and diamond tennis bracelet, Fyne Jewellery’s ‘Peace of Mind’ calligraphy earrings, and for the more experimental, Jacquie Aiche’s diamond and opal heart vortex ring.
If you’re unsure as to what your recipient wants, a safer approach is to look to delectable snacks and homeware. Each year, Bateel offers up a selection of exotically flavored dates and truffles, while Ladurée’s macaroons are bound to earn you brownie points. Emilia Wickstead’s floral green placemats are ideal for the friend who hosts the best get-togethers, and pairs best with Touch of Oud’s red flower burner gift set.
