For Her


Sephora beauty box

Sephora is the perfect place to shop if you are looking for a gift for someone who is interested in make-up. The beauty retailer has created a box with the season’s essential cosmetics, including the store’s popular Black Nuit Kajal (eyeliner) and Sunrise to Sunset eye palette as well as four mini complimentary best-seller products of mascara, waterproof makeup remover and cream lip stain, it is priced at AED 178, however the value of the products in the box add up AED 316.

Check out the website for some online exclusives. If you spend over AED 350, you will get free shipping and if you buy before Ramadan finishes you will get a free mini product with any online orders.



Getting a woman something sparkly is always a safe option, and this Eid should be no different. Pandora charms have turned Arabian this Ramadan, with charms starting at AED 145 you can choose a themed charm like an Arabian coffee pot, a camel, hamsa hand – symbolising protection as well as loyalty, patience and faith – and an embellished palm tree. If you spend over AED 600 in one of the store’s locations you will receive an Essence bracelet with your purchase.


The budget-friendly shop has everything from home décor, handbags to make-up. This Ramadan and Eid expect to see discounts that you can’t miss out on. With that in mind, if you are looking for something new to add to your house then you can get yourself an Elite’d Art table set of 3 at a discounted price at AED 749, originally priced at nearly AED 1,000 saving you 25%.


Audi Jewellery

Audi has partnered with C6, a Danish jewellery concept, to create custom-made collection of jewellery and accessories perfect for her and him. This Eid, the Audi Sport collection is now available to purchase in the Middle East. The pieces are crafted with different forms of carbon, using graphite and diamonds, so if you are looking for something different this holiday season, then you can purchase something truly unique. Okay, it may be pricey starting from AED 2,300, however the pieces are combined with carbon fibre and diamonds in one-of-a-kind designs.

For Him



If you know someone who can’t get enough of nifty gadgets to make his life easier, then Belkin has you covered. If he is always on the go and finds that his devices run out of battery before the day ends, then a Valet Charger Power Pack will be the perfect gift for him. It is a 6,700 mAh portable battery with a built in magnetic charging module that is suitable for charging an Apple Watch, eliminating the need for a cable. It claims that it has enough juice to recharge your Watch eight times over, without having to refuel the Valet Charger. For something so handy it is reasonably priced at nearly AED 370.



The popular man’s fragrance has brought out Horizon Extreme. So, when in doubt, seek out a new scent. This newly launched Davidoff fragrance is a more powerful, intense version of the Horizon – hence the added ‘extreme’. If your man likes the smell of rosemary and ginger, blended with nutmeg and sandalwood then you can get this bottle for AED 285.


Mr Porter

The regime of male grooming extends beyond shampoo and body wash nowadays. Whether your man is already fully invested in his beauty regime or he is just starting to understand the importance of moisturise, Mr Porter’s Grooming Kit for the summer is the perfect idea. Priced at AED 290 the box contains 12 products that ensure that all grooming bases are covered. Inside the box there is shaving cream, hydrating overnight mask, shampoo and conditioner, detoxifying hydrogel mask and many other products that will leave him feeling as fresh as a daisy.


For Kids

Sand board

Although the weather may not permit the use of the sand board now, the sand dunes will always be ready and waiting in Dubai. If you are looking to introduce your little one to a new hobby, or they are in need of a new board, then treat them to a funky sand board from Virgin Megastore. At AED 829, it is priced slightly higher, however, considering where you live, you should expect the child to have years of fun with it – making it worth the price.


Toy Store

From June 22 to June 28, Toy Store has several activities on to keep the little ones entertained along with an Eid Bonanza sale. You can go and have a meet and greet with Lighting McQueen or your kid can become a crew member at the Cars 3 Pit Stop and they can show off their skills. However, the Eid Bonanza will leave you struggling for choice. For AED 269 you can buy a Babyborn Interactive Doll with accessories, or if you are looking for a new born then you have the option of a Vtech Pop and Sing toy with Vtech Baby Rocking Rolling Cody for AED 149.

However, if you are looking to bring your child on fun day out for the long weekend, check out our Eid celebrations and where to go in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
