Ramazan is month of fasting for Muslims across the globe and after that we celebrate Eid. It is just as festive as Christmas.

Eid Mubarak to you and your family. I hope that your month of fasting has passed smoothly. You don't mention your gift budget, but I have found a few items that have remained firm favorites on my gift idea list in the last few years:
1. Books. Depending on the age and interests of the child, books are wonderful gifts. You can select anything from a popular work of fiction, to a non-fiction book on a subject of interest. Kids in our family love activity books, colouring books, and puzzle books such as crosswords or Sudoku.
2. Boardgames and puzzles. We loves our family game nights and often have a puzzle in some stage of building on our dining table. Boardgames and puzzles are great not only for family bonding, but also to improve skills like planning, strategy, and spatial awareness.
3. Gaming gift cards. Vouchers for PlayStation, X-box, or other online games are a good choice for teens. Other online store vouchers for broader platforms such as Apple App Store or Google Play store are also popular.
4. Recently a hit gift in my friend group for their preteen kids was a small non-stick frying pan and a box of ready-mix pancake ingredients. Making pancakes for the family was great fun and the kids thoroughly enjoyed trying to flip pancakes successfully.
5. For creative or arty kids, consider a pack of coloured paper and a beginners book of origami art. You can even download instructions from the internet and print them out yourself.
