DS-recommended Eid gifts guide.
For the auntie you’re visiting:
You’re in the Arab world, you can’t show up to someone’s house empty-handed! Kahraman Dates are the perfect go-to gift, striking the right balance between traditional and modern.
For the woman that deserves some pampering:
We all have a sister, mom or friend who needs a break. Well, Treat Nail & Hair Spa now offers gift vouchers! It’s good for the body and soul.
Location: Sihamiya Tower, Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Rd., Khobar
For the flower princess:
This person is too cute and sweet to get a plainly-wrapped gift. Make the gift extra special by stopping at Jau’s Flowers and asking them to do their wrapping magic.
Location: Firas ibn Al Nudur St., Khobar
For the fashion rebel:
Drastic laces, unexpected cutouts and statement pieces. If you know someone with this style, then the only place to find their gifts is OZ Closet. There’s something for every body type.
Location: Khobar Mall (Gate 8), King Fahd Rd., Khobar
For the kid at heart:
Sure, most of us grow out of loving dolls, but thankfully there are still those, like Aisha, that are looking out for the rest of us. Aisha takes custom orders, right down to the clothing and hairstyle.
For a good cause:
Trahum is a committee which rehabilitates prisoners and released prisoners, as well as helps their families. One of its projects is a booth in Al Rashid Mall that sells gorgeous handmade products made by some inmates or their families.
Location: Al Rashid Mall (2nd floor – Next to Paris Gallery), Firas ibn Al Nudur St., Khobar
