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.

‘I am proud to be Palestinian,’ says Bella Hadid after Instagram removed her post

‘I am proud to be Palestinian,’ says Bella Hadid after Instagram removed her post

DUBAI: This week, megamodel Bella Hadid called out social media platform Instagram for taking down her post that stated that her father, real estate mogul, Mohammed Hadid was born in Palestine. 

A few days ago, the 23-year-old, who is of Dutch and Palestinian descent, shared a photograph of her father’s expired American passport, which stated his place of birth as Palestine on her Instagram Story, writing “My baba and his birthplace of Palestine.” 

On Tuesday, Hadid revealed to her 31.4 million Instagram followers that the post was taken down, as it allegedly breached Instagram’s company guidelines.

The California-bred model explained to her followers: “Instagram removed my story that only said ‘My baba And his birthplace of Palestine’ with a photograph of his American passport. @instagram exactly what part of me being proud of my father’s birthplace of Palestine is ‘bullying, harassment, graphic or sexual nudity?’” she wrote. 

“Are we not allowed to be Palestinian on Instagram? This, to me, is bullying. You can’t erase history by silencing people. It doesn’t work like that,” she added alongside a screenshot of a notification she received from the social media platform that stated that her post was removed for going against community guidelines.

Not one to back down, the model re-posted the passport photo, which currently remains on her social media feed, and wrote “Do you want him to change his birth place for you? Everyone should post where their mother and fathers were born today! Remind them how proud you are of where you come from! I am proud to be Palestinian.” 

It is not entirely clear why Instagram deemed the post to go against its community guidelines, but Hadid was flooded with support from fans on social media. “Bella Hadid just ended Instagram and we love to see,” wrote one user.

It’s not the first time Hadid reaffirms her pride of her identity. The model is extremely vocal about her roots, and often takes to social media to show her solidarity with Palestinians. 

She even joined a group of demonstrators gathered in London for a “Free Palestine” protest in 2017. The model  reportedly saw the protest as she was driving to her hotel and decided to get out and join the marchers.
