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 really cute, really 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.
2. 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.
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.
4. Toys & Learning Resources
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 and resources for under $10 that are very fun!
This is probably one of the best Eid favors in the eyes of parents. Keep kids looking their cutest with these adorable apparel items, that can be used for many Eids to come!
Bonus: Cute Packaging
Because, who isn’t a sucker for an amazingly wrapped present!?
