Hey everyone! Salaam Alaykum 🙂
I hope you are all doing well!
There’s less than 2 weeks left of Mahe Ramadhan :O :O :O
I can’t believe it! The blessed nights of Qadr are approaching – the nights that mark the martyrdom of the successor of the Holy Prophet (SAWW), Imam Ali (AS) and the night when the Holy Qur’an was revealed. Please remember me in your prayers during these holy nights and inshallah I will do the same as well 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I’m already thinking of Eid now. With so many Eid gift exchanges coming up and having Eid be on a weekend this year inshallah, there’s no time to waste when it comes to Eid preparations! Hence, I put my thinking hat on and decided to make an Eid Guide for you all! 😉 (yes, I really just wanted to say that hehe :$)
Last year, I didn’t share any Eid Outfit Ideas and I actually ended up having people ask me for ideas or tips on their outfits. This year, I didn’t want to repeat that mistake!!
Of course, I have to share some outfit ideas for different styles and tastes, but I also wanted to give you some more ideas and help for Eid this year! Have to make up for last year right 😉
Hence, I also have some Eid Decor ideas as well as some ideas for Gifts that will be perfect and suitable for everyone on your list – your parents, siblings, friends, cousins, uncles/aunts, you name it!
I headed straight to Modah – an Islamic lifestyle store – to help find all these things! Modah is basically an Islamic Department store haha, it houses many different brands and ranges of products. A one-stop shop basically! I knew they’d have everything Eid and their unique store is an ideal place to get everything you need.
An all-in-one store for an all-in-one blogpost :))
BIG BIG BIG thank you to Modah for this wonderful opportunity! I had a great time 🙂
Also, Special thanks to my lovely mother dearest and my two cousins, Sukaina and Sayyeda for joining us at Modah! Also, thank you Sayyeda for the outfit pictures 🙂
Let’s get right into it!
Before you get dressed for an event, you have to set-up first right?! Hence, let’s prep this Eid Party with some super cute Decor Ideas.
With any decor, it’s always nice to have a theme or colour scheme! Modah has perfectly themed and matching decor for all aspects of the event – the different size plates, napkins, balloons, ribbon, even the invites!
For decor ideas, I thought I’d share 3 winning colour combinations that would be so pretty for Eid! And Modah obviously has some great decor that’d fit all three 😉
Classic and Contemporary – Orange, Teal, White, and Gray
These colours work together so nicely! The orange and teal are bright and definitely more popping colours, but the white and gray tone them down to make for a modern and classy look!
Some plates, napkins, and even paper hanging lanterns!
Totally Glam – Black, White, and GOLD
Black and white – classy, solid, essential. Black, white, and Gold – glamorous, sophisticated, bold. Adding gold always takes anything to the next level, so might as well add it the classic black and white and make it a win-win!
Some plates and lanterns to go with the theme from Eastern ToyBox!
Who wouldn’t love this Eid cube garland with lights on the inside!
Find these beautiful gift bags from Made With Hab near all of the other decor!
Fun for Everyone – Pink, Orange, Green, Blue, and White
These colours just scream SUMMER and have something that everyone will like! The more colours the merrier because you can mix and match cute decor and it’ll all still fit together!
Eastern ToyBox has the best line for this colour combination!
Wrapping paper, ribbon, gift bags, balloons, and banners!
Okay yay, my favourite part :$ As much as we want Eid to look super festive and cute, we want to make sure our outfit fits the bill 😉 All these pieces are available at Modah!
Lacey and Elegant – Navy Blue Lace Maxi from HijabiMama
Lace is my favourite thing in the world if you can’t already tell. It embodies class and sophistication and is the quintessential fabric for any occasion. This lace maxi dress from HijabiMama and comes in a couple different colours. The fitting is so nice too – it’s not too tight or loose and it just falls so smoothly. The fact that this dress is also FULLY LINED and LONG SLEEVES makes is absolutely perfect for any Eid occasion there is. Whether it’s Eid prayer at the mosque or even an evening dinner, this dress will make you feel comfortable and chic all day, or night, long 🙂
To complement the navy, I opted for a beige hijab with some silver and gold sparkly stripes and a gold belt from Aldo to add another dimension to the dress.
Florals are a summer time staple. Whether you like big florals or small florals, bright or muted, flowers are just happy and a good go-to. Normally, I’m not one for big floral prints, but when I saw this ball gown maxi skirt from HijabiMama, I actually fell in love! I was pretty surprised, but the fitting is so elegant as there’s a slight poof with the ball gown style.
With this gorgeous skirt, I wore a soft pink lace top that I tucked into the skirt. The soft pink lace isn’t too overpowering and doesn’t clash with the big and bold print of the skirt. This is key – a great alternative to mixing prints is to mix textures. The bigger floral print of the skirt works with the smaller lace fabric of the shirt and thus, the two complement each other. To add some contrast, I finished the outfit with a maroon hijab.
Now, I definitely wanted an accessory to tie the look together. This oversized clutch from Beaudefy is great. It has lots of space and adds the perfect amount of ‘shine/sparkle’ without overdoing the outfit.
This would be perfect for an Eid brunch or lunch event 🙂 This skirt comes in a couple different prints!
If you’re not a dress or skirt person, this outfit is ideal for you! Palazzo pants are one of my new staples. They’re not only great for the summer time but are so effortless! All you have to do is throw on a simple blouse or top and you’re done! They’re also very modest and super comfortable with their wide leg, so you’re covered in all aspects 😉
With these navy palazzo pants from Modesty (or now Mode-Ste), I wore a white short blouse and a black and white printed chiffon maxi cardigan. These pants are so lightweight and comfortable. The fabric is a bit shiny so they are great for a more formal or fancy occasion! This cardigan is also really soft so it feels really good all together. To add some sparkle, I wore this gray chunky floral statement necklace that is a little bit more edgy, but still cute. Lastly, I wore a periwinkle hijab to add a little bit of colour to the outfit.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how BEAUTIFUL this ruby skirt is. I mean….I’m speechless. This is my favourite outfit from the entire post!
Because the skirt is already a statement piece, I just tucked in a plain black long sleeve tshirt. I didn’t want the top to compete the with skirt as I wanted to add an accessory as well. Now, I know this ball gown skirt speaks for itself, but I couldn’t resist wearing this gorgeous statement necklace. To be honest, I think the necklace with the skirt pumps up the glam and the two work together. To finish the outfit, I wore a black and white ombre hijab to lighten up the look.
Prepare to look and FEEL like a Queen in this outfit! Can’t wait to wear this skirt again soon! It also comes in black, royal blue, and emerald!
Bright and Bold – Louella Marrakesh Dress (Louella is a part of ModestWear) and Caramel Hijab
Brace yourselves…This is a completely new and different look for HijabiHeroes.
This bold mustard, purple, and white maxi dress from Louella is brighter look than my usual, but I totally loved it! I can’t lie, at first, I thought the colours would be really bright, but when worn, this dress looks beautiful! The colours totally work together and the fitting is wonderful! Plus there’s pockets, which is always a plus!
Now, the real different look comes with the way I wore my hijab. This caramel hijab from Modah is surprising soft and felt so nice! The frayed edges add a nice touch to any hijab look. Instead of draping my hijab the way I normally do – this time I wore it….turban style!
Yep, NEVER thought I’d EVER wear a turban style hijab. I don’t know why, but never imagined it for myself. But here it is… Hope you like it :$
Eid Gift Ideas
Last but not least, behold are some gift ideas that are perfect for everyone on your list! I’ve classified some typical people who are pretty standard to shop for to make it a little easier for you 😉
Friend/Sister/Cousin (Any girl really)
Okay, there’s lots and lots for this one! You have some cute stationary from The Pampered Muslimah, modest clothing, fancy necklaces, and of course, can’t go wrong with a hijab!
Parents/Aunt-Uncle (Anyone really)
For someone older, I suggest a good book, Islamic art, or some pretty tableware. Modah has many books and a whole giant wall of pretty art. They even have some wall decor pieces from Modern Wall Art that have a light in the back! They’re so cool! They even have products from Reviving Islamic Art, which makes handmade calligraphy items, such as wooden art and laterns!
Or these teacup sets with arabic calligraphy are so pretty! They have plates and cups with similar designs. I know my mom loved these!
This is me. Yep, I’m basically telling you what I want for Eid LOL! Just kidding! But I definitely qualify under this category!
If you know a sweet tooth like me, they’ll definitely love any of these products from Blossom & Bean! Coming from an expert 😉
If you like chai, be prepared for a tea overload at Modah! Not only do they have a billion different types of tea, they also have a chai bar! Yes, it’s really hard to go to Modah while you’re fasting haha, so I went after iftar so I could sip on some yummy chai 🙂
They have these great gift sets or you can just buy the boxes and mix and match your own!
Ahh, we all know and love one. A beautiful friend/sister/cousin who loves makeup and everything pretty! Modah has Tuesday in Love, a unique brand that has water-permeable, wudhu friendly makeup and nail polish. Modah also is one of the only places with the halal certification for Tuesday in Love!
They have nail polishes, lipsticks, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and more!
Natural Spa Lover
The Henna Souq and Saaboon have the perfect gift for you innit! I know one of my friends loves fun bath stuff. Another really likes skincare!
Henna Souq has natural henna and clay powders that are good for hair colouring and face masks! One of their clay powders, the Organic Rhassoul Powder is so gentle and great for your skin! I used it as a face wash/mask and it made my skin super soft and face brighter and illuminated!
Saaboon has vegan handmade soaps and bath products that are natural and environmentally friendly 🙂
The Urban Forest even has bath melts, similar to bath bombs from Lush!
These toys and games are so cute! They are so colourful and educational as well! There’s also a large selection of islamic books for the young ones which is definitely a good gift idea to encourage reading!
And for that perfect bundle of joy…
If all else fails…a nice card and some money!
But really, if you can’t decide what to get for a loved one, pick up a pretty Eid Mubarak card from Modah and stick some cash or a gift card inside and you’re good to go!
Alrighty, that’s all from me!
I know this was a SUPER LONG post. But, I really hoped it helped you! I put a lot of effort into this post – a fun trip to Modah that was so fun, they had to keep the store open for an extra hour and a half!! (Thanks Modah for that hehe!) and lots of hours of editing and writing! Feedback would be greatly appreciated! (Please excuse Grammar mistakes, I’m sick and can’t think straight LOL).
Sharing with your family and friends would also be appreciated!
Lots of love!
~Where Style and Modesty Save the Day!~
