Eid is, and should be, an exciting time for children. And one way to bring that excitement into your home is by putting up decorations. Now I must admit that sometimes I do feel that Eid is becoming a bit commercialised but at the same time I do not think there is anything wrong with a spot of decorating. It helps the children get into the spirit of Eid and the girls and I tend to do a mix of home made decorations along with some purchased ones.
Alhamdulillah there is now a wide range of Eid decorations available and I decided to share a few of the companies we have personally come across that provide decorations. Please note that some of these companies have previously sent us complimentary decorations…however I would not include them in my list if I did not trust them as companies.
Anafiya Gifts sells a range of items including items relating to Hajj and Eid. From balloons, to pyjamas to money envelopes you are sure to find something you like. I could also relate to sister Naomi’s reason for selling Eid decorations:
‘…after spending one summer celebrating Ramadan and Eid in Malaysia, I noticed that this was completely different to what I had experienced in my life as a Muslim in the UK. The whole country stops. Communities open their doors and invite strangers to celebrate with them. Eid was a very big deal.
In an attempt to bring some of the excitement to the UK, I began selling Eid decorations to my local community in Oxford. This was a hit with our earliest customers, as a way of brightening their Eid. But they wanted more. They wanted gifts for their children. Gifts that embrace their Muslim identities and instill a love for Islam.’
You can learn more about Naomi and her business as I previously featured her in my Muslim Mums in Business Series: Anafiya Gifts.

Not strictly a site for decorations, Islamic Foundation has a small selection of decorations. As they are different from others I have seen, I decided to include them in this post.
‘The Islamic Foundation bookshop and site includes products from around the world, and although it primarily includes books, there are also a range of mats, toys and religious accessories too. Everything listed on this site has either been conceived, commissioned and/or published by the Islamic Foundation or carefully selected by a member of the Islamic Foundation team at some point over the last 40 years.’
