1 month ago

Eid al-Fitr is a time for celebration, family gatherings, and of course, receiving Eid money! But with all those lovely new notes in hand, the question arises: what’s the best way to spend them?

This article will explore some options to help you decide how to make the most of your Eid money, whether you’re looking for a little treat, something practical, or even ways to share the joy with others.

Treat Yourself:

Eid is a perfect excuse for a little self-care. Here are a few ideas, and some suggestions you might find at Fishergate Shopping Centre in Preston:

  • Lush: Indulge in a luxurious bath bomb or discover a new moisturizer to keep your skin glowing.
  • H.Samuel: Sparkle with a new pair of earrings – a timeless addition to any outfit.
  • Bodycare: Check out their amazing deals on perfume and find a new signature scent for the season.
  • Shoe Zone: Step into spring with a fresh pair of sandals!

Think Long-Term:

For those who prefer a more practical approach, consider investing your Eid money in something that will benefit you in the long run. Here are a few ideas:

  • Save for a Goal: Eid money can be a great way to kickstart your savings for a bigger purchase you’ve been eyeing, like a new gadget or a dream vacation.
  • Invest in Education: Put a portion towards a course or online learning platform to enhance your skills.
  • Buy Something You Need: Is there something practical you’ve been needing, like a new phone case from Mobile Blitz or a sturdy backpack from TK Maxx? Invest in something that will be useful for a long time.

Share the Joy:

Eid is also a time for giving. Here are a few ways to share your blessings:

  • Donate to Charity: Support a cause you care about and help those in need.
  • Gift to Loved Ones: Surprise a family member or friend with a thoughtful gift.
  • Treat Others: Use some of your money to take your friends or family out for a celebratory Eid meal at Meiz.
