Is it just me or is Ramadan just flying by super fast ? We are less than two weeks away from Eid and I wanted to put together a chic Eid Gift guide for family and loved ones. I usually find it pretty intimidating and confusing when looking for things to gift those closest to me so I decided to pick from the best out there from beauty, fashion and I even added home decor to the guide.
For the Beauty addict:
SACHAJUAN Protective Hair Perfume – This isn’t just another hair perfume, this multi-tasking hair fragrance treats your hair by moisturising, reducing static, imparting shine and adding UV-Protection. It also incorporates anti-odor technology because of extracts from natural citrus oils that breaks odor down for completely refreshed hair. Available at Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdales for 300AED.

This stainless steel bracelet is stylish, sophisticated and adds a touch of elegance to any casual outfit. MONTBLANC has stores across every major shopping mall within the UAE. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find out the exact price but I’m sure it’s well worth it for the men that make our lives extra special.
