Don’t forget your Muslim staff – it’s almost Eid!

23 06 2013

arabiannights13LWith the big focus always on Christmas and arranging Christmas gifts for staff, many companies can easily forget that other faiths have important holidays at that time of year too.

Eid Al-Adha or Eid Ul Adha, is an important Eid feast, which falls before Christmas on October 15th this year. Rather than send a potentially inappropriate Christmas hamper, why not send an Eid hamper? Bear in mind that sending a vegetarian hamper without a bottle of alcohol isn’t always ‘safe’ enough. Many traditional hamper products may have small amount of alcohol in their ingredients (think of rum truffles, or brandy in a Christmas pudding or even certain additives), which are not acceptable to observant Muslims. Our Eid gift hampers are vegetarian, strictly non-alcoholic and Haram additives free, yet contain wonderful traditional foods such as Mithai (Indian / Pakistani sweets) stuffed dates, Maamul and hand made Baklawa, that will delight any Muslim at Eid.

Even closer now is Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Ul Fitr which falls on the 8th August this year. This is an important celebration for Muslims that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, so a varied inspiring selection of Halal gift basket & hamper collection has been created for the celebrations and any other festive occasions throughout the year.

Ripe Gifts, UK’s premier vegetarian gift basket company, is also happy to create customised hampers to meet Islamic dietary requirements for corporates as well as for individuals, so just call on 01628 785354 to discuss.

Halal Gift Box with Coffe, Cardamom, Baklawa & More...A new addition to our halal gift baskets collection is our ‘Box of Delights’, a taste of our favourite delicacies from the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East.  Our smart red and gold glossy box contains a feast of high quality, traditional halal specialities including fine turkish coffee, ground cardamom (for those who, like us, appreciate the magical aroma of cardamom in their turkish  coffee), Turkish apple tea, honey and some truly wonderful sweet delicacies. We are proud to offer exquisite lebanese-style baklawa. Not over-sweet, this baklawa melts in the mouth and is laden with high-quality pistachios. A real delight. There is also a selection of authentic Turkish Delight with hazelnuts, pistachios and coconut and maamoul, a traditional cookie stuffed with fine Saudi dates. All products are vegetarian and halal. Last, but not least, there are two striking espresso cups and saucers, the perfect size for serving Turkish coffee.

It’s A Baby Gift!

13 03 2010

We have some wonderful ideas for baby gifts in our new baby gift basket collection. For what to send to hospital – forget flowers – send a ‘Baby Bouquet’ instead. Our ‘Baby Bouquet‘ is a stunning presentation of artifical flowers and foliage with large ‘blooms’ that are actually organic cotton baby clothes including a hat, bib and five pairs of socks. Beautiful and practical!

We’ve also introduced a lovely presentation box of giant ‘cupcakes’ that are actually two sets of cotton baby clothes. In our ‘It’s a Boy!’ and ‘It’s a Girl!’ gift baskets, the ‘cupcakes’ also come with an adorable warmable bunny for baby, supersoft natural sea sponge, honey & beeswax baby balm, relaxing and healing Dead Sea bath salts for Mum and yummy treats for friends and family.

We also offer Jewish (kosher) baby gifts and Muslim (halal) baby gift baskets.

Don’t forget that all our baby gift baskets are delivered FREE to addresses on the UK mainland. And, if you place your order before 2pm, your gift will be delivered on the next working day at no extra charge!
