The holy month of Ramadan brings with it ample time for socializing and catching up with near and dear ones. Ramadan is a time for giving, and if you are looking for ideas on festive gifting, I’ve found a few options you can consider.
Made for boys who appreciate a touch of quirk, this tool-kit features a variety of screwdriver heads in the guise of hatching eggs, and comes with a bird screwdriver. Available at ‘Little Things’ boutique, Dubai Mall.
For an Instagram-worthy rustic appeal, this vintage looking speaker is a great gift for nostalgic adults and 90’s inspired kids alike. Available at ‘Little Things’ boutique, Dubai Mall.

For A Special Little Girl
- Hand-Made Dumye dolls by Poupette a La Plage
These limited edition Dumye dolls are stunningly beautiful, and I wouldn’t mind one for myself! Furthermore, for every doll sold, one will be given away to a less fortunate child. These dolls are exclusively available at Poupette a La Plage (Box Park, Dubai).
Apart from the Dumye dolls,Poupette a La Plage is donating 10% of all sales proceeds to orphans in Syria via the Emirati charity fund Dar Al Ber. The brand stocks gorgeous outfits for little princesses, as well as a very dapper range for little boys.

- Limited Edition Teddy Bear by Diesel Kid
How adorable is this blue patchwork teddy by Diesel Kid? Best of all, 100% of the proceeds will go to the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWC).
