Keeping the spirit of the month alive amidst a socially-distanced Ramadan.
Ramadan is arguably the best time of the year for Muslims everywhere. As we are still practicing social distancing, we will be spending this year -- that's two Ramadans in a row -- without Iftar swapping with neighbors or Iftar parties with friends, crowding at the Masjid five times a day to pray in Jamat, and visiting your grandparents for Eid. While the pandemic may have changed how we observe Ramadan, it doesn't have to change the one thing that makes Ramadan so special— Sharing.
Here's a roundup of some gorgeous and thoughtful gift ideas that you can easily send your friends and family this Ramadan.
A forty-page journal with daily prayer tracker, with space for dues, gratitude, and to-do lists to ensure maximum productivity. Deen journals are by Made With Love, an online stationery shop that combines calligraphy and artistry into everyday things. Every year, Made with Love brings some cute and useful stationeries for the month of Ramadan. This year, Deen journal is available in two beautiful new covers— summer floras and dreamy galaxies.

The Sunnah Store is an Islamic gift shop that started their journey with the intention of spreading the messages of Islam.

There's something about greeting cards that takes us back to our childhood days. Greeting cards are a great way of letting people know you are thinking of them.

It's not easy spending another Ramadan by yourself. But let's make the most of it. Remind people they are loved and appropriated, finding ways to celebrate together from afar.
