22. Eid Clothes
Now I’m sure that many of us have all grown up with the classic gift of new Eid clothes to wear on this special day. One of the reasons this is such a popular and classic gift is because our beloved prophet PBUH has stated in some hadith that we must wash and wear clean pretty clothes on this special day. Wearing your best clothes, if not new, is a sunnah we all love to fulfil. So why not give a pretty outfit or accessory that will go with it? Men’s thobes and women’s Abayas are among the popular choices of dress.
