With COVID restrictions easing up as more of us get vaccinated, we’re all excited to celebrate Eid-Ul-Adha festivities with our family and friends. Preparing for Eid may be fun but it can also become quite a difficult task, and if you’re living outside of Pakistan, it is especially tough to find the right decoration pieces, cutlery, gifts, clothes, and more. But don’t worry, if you’re a Pakistani living abroad, we have curated the ultimate shopping guide for you!
Qurbani Box For Charity
The biggest difference between Eid-ul-Adha and Eid-ul-Fitr is the act of Qurbani, and when living abroad, it is often a huge struggle for Muslims to find an effective and reliable way to offer this sacrifice. SimpliEid is a platform which offers Qurbani services – they have partnered up with Rizq to create a donation box, where they will slaughter the animals for you at their Shariah compliant slaughterhouse and donate the Qurbani Hissa to charity. Ease yourself from the stress of figuring out how to do Qurbani this Eid, and have it all taken care of from the comfort of your own home!
Chic Glasses With Gold Detailing
One of the most exciting parts of Eid are the lunch and dinner parties, and having an array of festive dinnerware is key to throwing a successful dinner and impressing your loved ones. These chic glasses with gold and white detailing from Rasm are perfect for serving Rooh Afza, juices, lemonade, etc. They are elegant, classic and perfect for the Eid occasion!

Mint And Gold Dessert Plates
Who said paper plates are for children? When hosting large parties, we often need more crockery than we have available, which is why paper plates are the perfect option. These gorgeous scalloped paper plates in a soft pastel mint with gold foil edges from Eid Creations are tasteful and sophisticated. Get ready to serve sheer khorma, seviyan, mithai, and more!
A Bundle For Religious Offering
Eid is not just a festivity for celebration, but also a sacred holiday and a reminder to worship and pray.

Decorating the house with ornaments and various festive pieces is a great way to enhance your space and be around the Eid spirit, even while you’re far away from home. We love this Wooden Crescent ornament available at Walmart, which is illuminated by an artificial light that casts a soft luminous glow in your home, reminiscent of candlelight. The warm golden light creates the perfect ambience for Eid!
