Thoughtful Gift Ideas 28: A Surah Card

Check out this card shared by Towards Jannah! The original card for friends consisted of a little game – to recite short suras, with a beady dice and a set of colour pencils

Then her daughter made some significant amendments to the short suras on the card for her dad!

Celebrating Eid: Idea 7 – Sharing it with School (Staff and Classmates)

Why not share Eid with your schools? It’s a great way to spread awareness as well as goodwill 🙂

The kids went off to school with their arms full of Eid Kidzz cards for their class mates and Eid gifts for their teachers, and came back with smiles and some Eid goodies from other students! We received a few lovely comments from their teachers AND classmates who thanked us for the cards and wished us Eid Mubarak 🙂 The next day, my son came home with a card his (non-Muslim) friend had made for him (pictured)! It truly is amazing how a little gesture can go a long way…

Here is another lovely example of things you can send in to school:

 

Ramadan Idea 4: The Night Before Ramadan

Ramadan Idea 4: The Night Before Ramadan

Welcome Ramadan in with EXCITEMENT!

I am super excited to be sharing this with you. Inspired by this post on an idea to welcome the school year, we have come up with with a Welcome Ramadan card and poem for children!

“The night before Ramadan is exciting and fun
There are always so many things to be done
Your sadqa box is ready, your dua book is too
Your mosque is full of fun things you will do

Lots of questions go through your head, of every kind
Will I be able to fast? Fast with my whole body and mind?
Sometimes we all get the jitters down deep
And that makes it hard to fall fast asleep

So I’ve made this magic confetti for you
Full of promises for the whole month through
On Wednesday night when you lay down your head
Just sprinkle some under your pillow in bed

The confetti will help you sleep through the night
And wake in the morning fresh and bright
Mommy and Pappa are excited for all that you’ll do
Remember Allah and be kind…we’re so proud of you!”

It’s a FREE download! Simply print it off, fold it, and stick on a teeny weeny bag of confetti inside – then cuddle up to your children tonight, open it and share a special moment welcoming this month in, Inshallah!

P.S. If you’re like me, you may want to keep a hoover/brush pan nearby for afterwards!

  • Why not also prepare a Welcome Ramadan surprise basket for them to wake up to? Here is a great example!
  • Many people are also doing Ramadan scavenger/treasure hunts whereby through a series of clues, the children can find their Ramadan baskets! There are quite a few on google so have a quick look!

Celebrating Eid: Idea 5 – Share it with the Neigbours and those around you

Sharing Eid with our neighbours has been my passion for many years – in fact, one of the very first products created by Buzz Ideazz was a card specifically for non-Muslim neighbours.

We went round to the neighbours today! It started pouring in the middle so we had to take a quick break, but oh well 🙂 This time we took some chocolates (check out these Eid Mubarak ones Guylian has come out with) as I’m all baked out – plus we usually give them baked goods so this was a nice change! Alhamdulillah came back with having caught up with what they’ve been up to, some more phone numbers, feeling more secure (as one of them said our alarm had gone on a few days ago and he had come to check the place out to make sure it was OK), and a warm, fuzzy feeling too 🙂

P.S. Here is our neighbour’s card and treat for this year (2014):

P.P.S. It’s 2021! We’ve been at our house for nearly 15 years now and I’ve tried to mix it up a bit over the years! But it was usually only to the houses closer to us. For the last two years, ever since lockdown began and a WhatsApp group for our entire road was created, we have gifted the entire road a little something. These personalised chocs are what we ended up doing for this year – something small enough to be sustainable, but hopefully meaningful! It was well received, Alhamdulillah 🙂

  • And i absolutely LOVED this Eid of sharing Eid with anyone around by decorating the car full of chocs! The idea was seen on FB (by Dua Kaylani) who said:
    “HAVE FUN THIS EID! The kids just finished this; decorating our car with chocolate – and already a lady walking by asked us what is Eid and took one!”
