As we approach the beginning of the holy month, it is clear many things are going to be different this year. To curb the spread of Covid-19, the UAE government has asked that we all self-isolate during a time when, traditionally, we are surrounded by friends and family.
But while we might not be able to gather this Ramadan, it is still possible to embrace the spirit of the holy month by sending gifts to friends and loved ones. While it isn't possible to deliver them in person, we have rounded up 25 ideas for gifts – ranging from stuffed dates by Bateel to decorate yourself coffee pots by Aura Living – that can be ordered online for delivery, to help spread messages of love and support.
For those who fancy trying their hand at blending a bespoke perfume, Oh La La is offering a Fragrance Mixology Kit, complete with miniature vials of essence to experiment with, or for those who want to send a very personal gift, why not emboss a name or message on to a bag or sunglasses case at The Custom Factory.
Those looking for something upscale should look to the jewellery of Noora Shawqi and help support a regional talent, or why not give the gift of fresh flowers, through Dubai florist Bliss. Whatever the tastes of your friends and loved ones, hopefully you can find some inspiration with our guide.
