  • Gifty time- need ideas for gift giving to females

    Need to gift some ladies some stuff.
    There are 3 in total.
    1 is sorted but the other 2 i need ideas.

    Sister A- is feminine and really sweet/homey and all round lovely and no i will not buy clothes. I need some ideas.

    Sister B- i have an idea. She is currently memorising the Quraan has often gone through bouts (is that a real word?) of hubut, where she has come across several obstacles and lost motivation a few times. She is dutch and loves holland. So i was thinking of creating a sort of book which i will include several reminders/motivational bits and bobs all related to hifdh and then get some girls to sign it. How's that sound? Anything else i could add for her?

    So Sister A i need ideas for. Ideally something feminine and mature. erm...just need to appropiately generate some ideas hence this thread.

    Those are the only girls i need to do something for. None have children yet, i ask Allah Ar-Razzaqq ul-Wahhaab to grant them all righteous boys and girls whom will be the coolness of their eyes ameen.

    Hit me with your ideas please.

    a selection of organic soaps.
    there's a lovely market in Camden that does amazing soaps. you can mix and match and make your own basket. they smell heavenly.

        Sister A - candles, cookery book, cake-making utensils, perfume, fancy designer cushions

        Sister B - Your idea sounds fine, and you could also get her a Quran learning pen http://www.quranlearningpen.com/

            Does sister A own her own place? you can make her some of the pinterest home DIY things. Makeup? Jewellery? What about some really nice hijabs if they wear scarves?

              discreetly ask her what kind of scents she likes. they've got a selection of different soap bars and they individually wrap it up for you nicely too.
              Ro's Argan is a lovely body conditioner from Lush.
              *melts* ..

              and for sister B, don't laugh at my idea lol.
              why don't you find out when she first started memorising Qur'an and then find a plant that is the same age and gift it to her so that the plant grows as she she is learning the Qur'an. i know i'd really appreciate something like this.

                No to jewellery/make up/hijabs.

                I assume she will have her own place, dunno, but the other one currently doesn't. But those homey things sound nice. :jkk:

                I will end up telling her lol i can't do discreet like that. But you gave me an idea of plants, i like that for sister A. Your idea for sister B sounds interesting too but then it has become your idea and not mine :( it wouldn't feel personal.

                Would love to plant a tree but i ain't in that position.

                      I'm liking the ideas from Sirius.

                      Have you seen the prices of those pearl things?

                        Can you do calligraphy?

                        You could make some artwork on a canvas.

                          In re to sister A, when I was reading her description, a tea set came to mind. Saucers, cups, and matching teapot. From what I've heard, England has really lovely ones.
                          Allah gave us two ears and one mouth, so we can listen more and talk less.

                            For the first girl:

                            Kitchen utensils/sets/gadgets, bath and body set, maybe those packages with stuff for the bed (Blankets, sheets, pillows etc), decoration pieces (vases, mirrors, bowls etc), maybe a basket of yummy foods (for example, good quality chocolate, biscuits, tea's, honey and so on), some sweets from a good bakery, bakhoor/candles...

                            Second girl:

                            Rainbow quran, fancy beads (for dikhr, tasbeeh), a nice prayer mat, bakhoor, books with dua's...if it's affordable you could even make a basket consisting of this too.
                            Nothing is impossible with Allah:o
