Eid suggested gifts to her

Ramadan is the month of giving and Eid is the perfect ending to this holy jolly month. Eid is the best opportunity to show you love for your loved ones, weather it was a memory or something to keep.
Below are a number of suggested gifts for the perfect luxurious gift for her.
1) Luxury scent: Omani based luxury perfume brand Amouage just released their Opus IX in the latest addition to Amouage’s luxurious Library Collection, an assembly of diverse and densely constructed formulae launched initially in 2010. They are designed to be out of time, reckless, a cunning initiation of gaudy brilliance and sensual privacy. The Omani brand showcases the region’s distinctive olfactory history and potential market force as a manufacturer of luxury perfumes. ‘La Traviata’ inspires the perfume; Opus IX is a soulful interpretation of the camellia flower. The notes feature camellia accord, black pepper, jasmine, gaiac wood, beeswax, leather, amber, vetiver and civet.
2) Relaxing spa day: Pampering might be the best gift you can give her. Almost every Saudi spa offers a special treatment for Eid. With such a package, women can spend up to a whole day relaxing. They can unwind and leave the spa feeling relaxed and pampered. We recommend Rosewood Al-Faisalia’s ESPA in Riyadh, it is where luxury meets comfort. Knowledgeable therapists and a variety of treatments is what will make this eid memorable.
3) Leather goods: Nothing beats a branded wallet, clutch or handbag, they are always the safest choice. We are obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent’s latest collection, it is recommended to stick with classic designs, colors and styles. This way she will have no choice but love it and wear it for eternity.
4) Jewelry: Saudi jewelry brand Charmaleena is the perfect gift for those who are looking for a unique piece to give away. Their latest collection Draws its inspiration from the strength and beauty of nature, The Edges of Nature collection reflects the grace, strength, and resilience of the palm tree. Grounded with strong roots, it is forever growing, reaching, and flourishing as it rises from the desert’s golden sands. As we seek to find our way and thrive on our own journey, we must always dare to follow our dreams and reach new heights.
5) Eideyya: Are money gifts for children during Eid. It is a tradition throughout the GCC countries. The amount differs from one family to another and in some families not only are children gifted, but men and women are also generously rewarded.
6) Explore other cultures: It’s always a good occasion to explore a new destination. Saudia Airlines are offering exclusive bargains for those who want to spend their eid abroad. Hint: We hear London is calling.
7) Family gathering: Book a table for your whole family at your favorite restaurant. It’s always great to gather around food with people who you love. It is here that you can share conversations over bites. High end restaurants are a Jeddawi’s favorite, we recommend Toki for the best Chinese cuisine and Byblos for the upper class Lebanese restaurant.
8) Chocolates: It is a sweet gesture to gift chocolates when visiting someone’s home. In Saudi, Eid is always said to be Ramadan’s sweet ending. Godiva chocolate boutique offered beautiful chocolate boxes and plates that will fill your eid with joy especially for the young ones.
9) Flowers : You can never go wrong with a beautiful flower arrangement from your local flower shop. We recommend you to go to Abdulaziz Al-Noman’s boutique in Jeddah to find your perfect arrangement. Women in general are visually oriented and love colorful and beautiful blooms. The flower designer recommends using simple arraignments with bold colors to add fresh colors to your Eid view.
10) Endless time: It is essential for women to have a timepiece that will match with everything they wear, We are currently obsessed over Chopard’s La Strada, this classic watch is a perfect design for strong, classy independent women. La Strada is a bracelet in 18-carat rose gold, and its mother-of-pearl dial recall the elegance of a star of Italian cinema in the 1950s as the La Strada watch subtly plays with its feminine curves. The gently bulging form together with the classic Roman numerals and the warm glow of rose gold and diamonds make this watch a reference model for women who seek to put glamour in their life every day.

Cool down in Zayan Ghandour’s summer-ready kaftans

  • Zayan Ghandour has now unveiled a Spring/Summer 2019 collection that is perfect for the month of Ramadan
  • Ghandour’s contemporary ready-to wear line features signature hand-embroidered motifs and custom-illustrated prints

DUBAI: Dubai-based designer Zayan Ghandour is showing off her latest line at the Fashion Forward Dubai pop-up in Jeddah department store Rubaiyat this Ramadan.

Fashion Forward Dubai, which recently announced it will be back with another showcase of regional talent in October, unveiled plans to present a special collection by twelve regional designers in the department store last week.

The Stars Avenue mall pop-up store will be open until June 3, just in time for fashion-savvy shoppers to snap up a new ensemble for a Ramadan gathering or Eid Al-Fitr celebrations.

“Fashion Forward Dubai is thrilled to continue expanding our partnership with the prestigious Rubaiyat. Our first two editions have resulted in several success stories for our designers. We are confident that this momentum will continue as we tap into new talent and markets with our growing roster of fantastic designers,” Bong Guerrero, CEO of Fashion Forward Dubai, said in a released statement.

The line-up of up-and-coming, as well as established, regional designers will showcase their Ramadan and Spring/Summer 2019 apparel and accessory collections at the pop-up store.

One of those designers is Ghandour, who launched her own quirky, feminine brand, Zayan the Label, at Paris Fashion Week in 2011 and has now unveiled a Spring/Summer 2019 collection that is perfect for the month of Ramadan.

The summery collection features vibrant shades of red, pink and orange with fresh whites and baby blues.

With a mix of dresses, kaftans and two-piece ensembles, all the holiday-ready outfits are cool and billowing — which is essential as temperatures in the Gulf climb.

The Mina Kaftan is particularly delightful, with its pattern of printed berries and lemons on white. The kaftan features batwing sleeves with yellow scalloped edges and a V-shaped neckline.

A soft pink kaftan with emerald green racing stripes in 3-D beading, the Veronica Kaftan is ideal for a laid back iftar.

Ghandour’s contemporary ready-to wear line features signature hand-embroidered motifs and custom-illustrated prints, all of which are visible in her latest collection where detailed embroidery and colorful embellishments are visible on almost all the pieces.
