All year Gift Guide

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

I have always wanted to write this type of post for Eid. I love gift giving, and finding great product's or little bargain's which are great for goodie bag's, or for lack of a better phrase "stocking filler" type thing's. The only problem is that I just didn't have the time to search for item's, think of idea's and so on around Ramadan and Eid, this year.

Everybody loves receiving gift's (unless your name is Sheldon Cooper) it's one of the good manner's which maintain's and strengthen's the bond between each other. Giving gift's is also sunnah! Don't forget that are certain etiquette's when giving and receiving, enjoy this short clip.

So I thought i'd go ahead and compile a gift guide sort of post, to give at any time of the year! I think it should be done more often actually, spontaneous gift's, which personally are more fun, rather than the typical expected gift's just on special occasion's. I'm not saying those gift's are less special, it's just that a surprise is really comforting from family/friend's as you know they have been thinking about you. Or perhaps you may find something you want to treat yourself to, we all deserve a little something-something, every now and then!

It goes without saying that these completely depend on the receiver's taste and how well you know that person, whether you are the mother, friend, in-law, student. Think of them individually, and of what experience's you've had together. 
What do they like? did he recently move out? did she pass her driving test? having a baby? Should it be a little "saw it and thought of you" gift, a gag gift, or something special?
 A great gift usually has personal meaning. Also think about if you want to spend a little or a lot.

This is purely for inspiration, and most are what you could use to put in a hamper/basket, instead of one big gift.
