As Eid fast approaches, many of us are starting to think about how to make the day memorable for our kids. And… if you’re family is full of kids like mine is, that can be a pretty expensive undertaking. But, don’t fret! I’ve come up with the perfect list of Eid gift favors, that are all UNDER $10!! There are so many opportunities to get creative with our Eid gifts. We can give gifts that get kids playing, problem solving and having fun. Here is my list of 5 Eid gift favors that (aren’t candy 😀 and) are under $10!
1. Dollar Store Mix & Match
The key here is to pick a theme and these favors can get real cute, real fast. The dollar store often sells packs of items (like erasers, pencils, notebooks, paint, etc) and they make for great favors either alone or paired with other items. This is a great way to get kids busy with their hands, and maybe give parents a little break while their kids play.
There are so many amazing printables available online. Find one you love, with a message you believe in and hand it out as Eid favors. Printables are great, because it’s a one-time purchase but you can usually print the product as much as you like. Roll it up as pictured below and attach an Eid tag to spruce it up :).
Money is theoriginal Eid favor. You could play this tradition up and find cute ways to package the money, so that kids are still excited to receive it. Kids love receiving money because it’s not often that they have buying power. Be sure to check out the amazing money envelopes from Silver Lining and The Craft Souk, and use promo code EVERYDAYCLASS17 for 10% off of your purchase at either online store!
I know this is super obvious. The thing is though, toys can be pricey… especially when you’re buying them as favors. However, there are a number of toys for under $10 that are very fun! In fact, the creative shop Seedling allows you to search for gifts that are $9.99 and under!
5. Eid Accessories
A perfect Eid favor is something that the kids can use that very day to get into the Eid spirit. They can even wear their accessories to school the following day to share their special experience with their peers. Accessories can include: buttons, wrist bands, homemade sashes, or anything else the kids can wear for the day.
P.S. If you want to create your own favors for Eid, consider jazzing up your packaging with some adorable bags or tags:
