I came across this post on IlmFeed on FB and loved it. Sharing as seen:
“My nephew and nieces gifted me this lovely personalised bottle with zamzam water last Eid. Once we’d finished the zamzam, I filled it up with sugar water. The perfect size to pop into my bag on my walks.
I keep the sugar water for the bees. They get exhausted and sometimes can’t fly. Yesterday on our morning walk we came across two bees together. One looked dead. The other one was twitching, but finding it hard to move. I poured some sugar water and waited. First one flew away within 30seconds of drinking the sugar water alhamdulillah. The second is pictured here. Poor creature was so exhausted. It took a bit longer to drink and recover, but eventually flew off very energetically alhamdulillah
Please watch out for tired bees and feed them some sugar water or fizzy if you see them exhausted like this.

You know those personalised cups/magnets/bookmarks/towels (and now coke cans!) that we now don’t even bother looking at because they will have English names (unless we have the name Sarah or something similar!)…
Well, Dua Cards are providing an excellent alternative! Check out this personalised keyring that I got 🙂
I LOVE personalised stuff – and personalised stuff that is useful – the keychain has a dua for safety on the other side – well, it just doesn’t get better than that 🙂
Mashallah, more and more people are now decorating their houses for Eid – stringing up lights, hanging up balloons, and creating Islamic pieces around which presents can be kept leading up to the big day!
- Check out this Mosque which someone very talented made with her girls!
Here is a mosque which opens up to reveal presents!
- Why not have an Eid Tree? Here is what one mum said: “We have a plant in our living room on which we hung home-made stars and a moon (cardboard and foil!), some angels the kids made in class, and other bits of decoration. Next to it is our very amateur attempt at making a mosque with boxes, a balloon and paper mache (and lots of paint and sequins!). It doesn’t look all that but hey, we had fun making it!”
Check out this beautifully decorated tree sent in by a mum!
“Here is the picture of our Eid tree. I have three girls. They are the ones who decorated it – as you can see the ornaments are all the activities we did during Ramadhan.”
Or how about this home-made palm tree?
I love this idea of personalised ornaments. Every year, a mum makes an ornament out of a recent photo – here is what she said: “We exchange an ornament every year with our kids’ pictures. On our Eid tree is a history of our kids growing up. Now that my kids are older, I don’t set up the tree any more but I always display the ornaments!”
It makes a lovely personal gift too – am sure the grandparents and aunts and uncles would love it 🙂
- And here is a lovely display of Eid cards hung up!
