Sweet and mouth-watering gift ideas for Eid-ul-Fitr from Melted Inside

19th April 2021

Following the month of Ramadan is the celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr - a three-day festival that sees loved ones and friends coming together. In 2021 it falls on 12th to 13th May.


Eid Al Fitr’ translates from Arabic to “the festival of breaking the fast”, so it’s no surprise that much of the long weekend celebrations revolve around eating.

Gift giving is an important part of the festival with sweet treats being particularly favoured. MeltedInside.com has a wonderful selection of lovingly made gifts that you can have delivered to your home or sent to your loved ones.

Eid-ul-Fitr, also known as the Lesser Eid, is the first day after the month of Ramadan and a time when Muslims get together with friends and family to celebrate their month of sacrifice and spend time with their community (COVID 19 restrictions permitting). It is a time for great feasts, sweet treats and gift giving.

Within the Islam community, giving gifts is a gesture to express and create mutual love, through a wide range of gift options such as: dates, almonds, pistachios, honey, juices and fruit cakes.

MeltedInside.com founder Candy Bowles said: “We love celebrations especially those that encourage sharing and generosity. We are proud to work with many makers who devote their lives to creating some amazing products with incredible flavours. Their products will make the gifts in time for Eid-ul-Fitr extra special.

“Our wonderful makers originate from all corners of the planet. Many are inspired by time abroad or their birthplace - others just wanted to create something extraordinary and magical to eat or drink that met their special dietary needs. Buy purchasing from these artisans you are not only buying high-quality, delicious products but you are helping entrepreneurs and their small businesses to survive.”

Here are some sweet options chosen by the MeltedInside.com team that could make perfect gifts:

The nutty sesame tahini and sweet sugar is well balanced with flavourful pistachios and a mix of other tree nuts.

Another treat that is beautifully presented is this luxury gift box of four decadent flavours from: Biscottilicious. Charu the maker of these treats transforms biscotti from a simple traditional sweet treat into a handcrafted, luxurious taste sensation. The box includes Raspberrilicious, Wild Forest, 24 Carat Gold and Salted Caramel Crunch.

For date and chocolate fans and looking for something chewy, maker Elate Chocolate & Dates has created a wonderful treat combining soft Medjoul dates with different combinations of Nutella, peanut butter, roasted Almond, roasted hazelnuts or pistachio then covered with white chocolate, milk chocolate or dark chocolate.

Nuts and dates are also the key to these delicious, luxury treats from Cajuu. The maker roasts cashew nuts then rolls them with dates and adds cloves and aniseed. Encased in plastic free sustainable packaging, this product is great if you want to give a natural and healthy snack.
