September 23 marks Saudi National Day, the perfect occasion for us to remember the Kingdom and all of its accomplishments over the years. The annual celebration, which marks 93 years since the Kingdom’s union will be celebrated under the slogan “We dream and achieve.” The phrase is a powerful reflection of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 blueprint, which encompasses sweeping economic, societal, and cultural reforms.

While the kingdom will celebrate its 93rd birthday with fireworks, flypasts and festivities, you too can join in on the occasion with a smaller celebration of your own — and what better way to mark Saudi National Day than with a special gift or two for your loved ones? If you’re unsure as to where to start, Vogue Arabia has you covered with a range of special picks, all designed keeping Saudi Arabia in mind.

For the beauty lover, start your gifting journey with Saudi beauty brand Asteri’s KSA-inspired lipsticks, which come in a metallic finish green case. Saudi founder Sara Al Rashed’s aim is to empower women, while also offering up makeup that is ‘desert-proof’. Another winner in our book is Saudi makeup artist Waad Al Turki’s second collaboration with Sephora Middle East — but be quick, the social media star’s first collection was an instant sell out. Our beauty editor’s pick is the all-in-one Sephora x Waad Eyes and Face Palette, which comes with ten buildable and vibrant pigments for eyes, blendable blushes, a bronzer, and a highlighter. And if fragrances are more your thing, look no further than Saudi multi-hyphenate Sara Murad’s newest drop, Black Oud — a unisex perfume that’s perfect for the festive season.

Clothing and accessories always make great gifts, so this Saudi National Day, look to failsafe handbags from Aigner and L‚Étrange, or spruce up a loved one’s closet with statement Malone Souliers heels in acid green. Marmiz’s rose-detailed green dress and Saudi label Dal’s beautifulyl embroidered abayas promises to become prized possessions, while The Giving Movement’s Saudi-theme T-shirts make the perfect everyday essentials. But if you really want to earn brownie points, fine jewelry is the ticket. Express your love for the nation with Hiba Jaber’s Saudi Arabia-shaped pendant, or invest in Maria Tash’s delicate ear pieces in shades of vibrant green.
