What Digital Gadgets would You Buy with an Eid Gift of £1000?

The positive memories of Eid still linger!

Whether you received a gift or gave some away, gift giving is a sure way of spreading positive feel-good emotions.

Plus giving of gifts is sunnah. If you were not opportuned to give any eid gift this past Eid, Eid al- adha is not too far away. You can plan to spread some joy to others through the gifts you share.

Thinking of people who deserve an Eid gift from you? Think no further.

It could be your parents, spouse, children, siblings, friends, colleagues, neighbours etc. And in much the same way, you deserve every awesome gift sent your way.

Abu Huraira reported: The Prophet (SAW) said,

“Give each other gifts and you will love each other.”

Al-Adab al-Mufrad [Hasan]

Get ready for a feel-good ‘post Eid’ activity regarding Eid gifts – because Eid is a BIG deal, do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

What Eid gift (new shiny objects) would you get?

Imagine a good friend or loved one gifts you with $1000 cash or gift card.

Do I hear you saying Amin!!!

The only spending condition is that s/he would be your shopping companion and you have just one hour to choose from any digital gadget you want.

You are free to buy exactly what you what and in the quantity you desire, just make sure it totals $1000 or less.

Ready???

You can use the prices at Amazon as a guide since they stock most things. Consider it your digital world. Beware of any over analysis – as this is more of a window shopping of your dream gadgets.

Don’t forget to follow this activity up with a giant sincere Du’a. Because dreams can come true, o yes.

Some idea of digital gadgets you should be shopping for:

  • Kindle devices and accessories;
  • Games, consoles and accessories;                                 
  • Phones, headphones and speakers;
  • Laptops, desktops, tablets and accessories;
  • Cameras, photo gadgets, flying selfie drones;
  • TV, home cinema, portable sound and vision equipment.

And more of course.

Happy shopping (timer’s on, one hour only) – 3, 2, 1… here’s your Amazon store floor.

  1. Fun post mashaa Allah! I’ve enjoyed reading the comments from your other readers too, it’s fun seeing what other people would choose 🙂 I would say I would go for a camera, it’s been on my wishlist for a while!

    • Amina Edota says:

      Awesome! Another camera lover… click, click. I rely too much on my phone cameras but admire professional cameras and the powerful shots they can take. Our world has become so visual we need to have a good camera at hand always. I will need a camera buying guide soon 🙂

  2. Barak Allaah feeki for sharing this! This was fun to read, and you have shared some great Islamic and practical tips for gift giving.
    It was also very helpful of you to include a link to the “shop floor” on Amazon –excellent for lazier people like me, haha!
    I thiiinnnkk I will want to get a good camera for blog photos, and a dictaphone for interviews. Good investments for blog people like us! Maybe if there’s some money left (unlikely), I would treat myself to a Kindle. I better start working on my du’aa!

    Jazak Illaah khair <3

    • Amina Edota says:

      Masha Allah… Wa iyyaki. Now I need to go and look up the features and capabilities of a dictaphone. Never thought about that with all the apps/software out there for audio recording. Camera is definitely a great investment.

  3. I’d probably get myself a new phone and a new SLR camera.

    • Amina Edota says:

      Great choices – may be tempted too with a phone since it serves as my mini laptop assistant these days. But doubt if I will have any change leftover for a phone, laptop will have to come first. Want to experiment with an Apple.

  4. Nice post .It is sometimes difficult to choose gift for some people..

  5. Umm Ruqaiya says:

    Like #Multicultural Motherhood said, I am also not really into digital gadgets but if I was given this $1000 to spend on this specific category then I would do either of the two: if the gift giver allows I would give the entire amount to hubby and let him take the charge OR buy as many good kindle readers as I can buy and keep them in my gift stock 😀 (we can pass down a gift Islamically speaking).

    • Amina Edota says:

      Good thinking… and a lot of ajr your way. Need to pass my dream kindle specs over to you so you can include me on the gift list from now 😃 . I love kindle but could do with a newer version.

  6. I am not really in to digital gadgets but if I had the money I would buy a nice CD player so my kids could listen to audio books and nasheeds while they play.

    • Amina Edota says:

      That’s a nice one. I love audiobooks myself and encourage reading in the different formats – keeps the reading experience exciting.

  7. Thank you for sharing this. I usually get blank about gifts. “What should i gift to that person or that?”. You made it easy. We used to play outside in our young age but Nowadays gadgets are more important for youth than people… 😀

    • Amina Edota says:

      I admit it can get difficult trying to choose gifts for others. But for oneself – nah! My virtual list is always ready for my most important needs.

      For the young ones – outdoor life and play does not have to be compromised for tech life. They can have the best of both – monitor and regulate screen time and even use tech as a family. It has both good and bad side to it as with most things in life.

  8. Thanks for sharing this it’s very helpful and informative

  9. Love Amazon for everything!
    It’s a great idea buying digital gifts for friends. I always get my headphones from Amazon. But I haven’t got any big electronics like phones or laptops from Amazon. Would love to hear others experiences with buying those from them!

    • Amina Edota says:

      Same here… I’m an Amazon fan! With a gift of £1,000 – it’s a no brainier what gadgets I would snap up in an hour online or offline. It’s a gift after all… Yours for spending.
