Eid Al-Adha 2017: Celebrate In Style

Everything you need to know about the Islamic holiday and what to wear to ring in the festivities with your family

What to wear for Eid Al-Adha 2017 in Dubai

An important date in the Muslim calendar and expected to take place in the early days of September (depending on the moon), Eid Al-Adha is an Islamic festival celebrated worldwide. Otherwise known as the ‘Feast of Sacrifice’, the celebration will see many of the UAE’s residents enjoy a three-day holiday to mark the holy occasion.

A special time of both family and religious devotion, Eid Al-Adha brings with it a host of celebratory events where loved ones feast and share gifts with one another.

Here we reveal the ultimate Eid gifts to buy from the Dubai shopping malls and the stylish shopping picks to celebrate the occasion in fashionable form.

 

Eid Gifts available at Dubai Shopping Malls

Moresque Alandalus Candle available at Paris Gallery, visit City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Fujairah

With rich notes of saffron, ginger and oud, this decadent candle is sure to be a well-received gift across the board.

Satin gown by Rochas available at Boutique 1 in Mall of the Emirates

Satin gown by Rochas available at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates

This dress is made for feasting, thanks to the ever so clever drop-waist silhouette. We love the shimmering sequinned bodice and satin finish for glamorous after-hours occasions during Eid.

Embroidered skirt available at H&M

A vibrant cherry red maxi skirt that ticks all the right boxes – modest, bright and bang on trend with the floral embroidered overlay. For maximum impact, team with an equally bright blouse and statement soles.

Things To Do With Your Kids Over The Weekend

No weekend plans? Bored kids on your hands? It's easy to drop into a predictable routine; especially when it's too hot to go outside.

Luckily we have the antidote – a group of exciting destinations located at Deira City Centre, one of the top shopping malls in Dubai where you can mix fun with comfort and convenience.

Take a trip to Magic Planet

Exciting games and hair-raising rides combine to create a playground for all ages at Magic Planet Dubai; why should kids have all the fun? Magic Planet provides a premier indoor entertainment venue for the whole family with a wide array of rides, games, and attractions.

Test your reaction times in their racing simulators and arcade games; grab the edge of your seats for their high-speed amusement rides, or chill out over a game of pool or bowling. Magic Planet has something for everyone whether they seek fast thrills or a more relaxed pace. Bonus: Players can collect reward points to spend on prizes at Magic Planet’s Prize Shop. The more you play, the more you earn!

Grab a bite at one of our joints

Take a breather at one of City Centre’s fast food joints - from burgers and sushi to kebabs and fish ‘n' chips, all your cravings are satisfied. Burger King Dubai serves spectacular fire-grilled burgers, but if you’re in the mood for Arab food check out Just Falafel Dubai. Their falafels, wraps, and sauces are delightful twists on the usual.

If you want to introduce your child to new flavours, try Sugoi Sushi, the first quick-service outlet in the UAE to serve traditional Japanese cuisine. London Fish & Chips also serves relatively healthier fast food with 0% fat baked potatoes and a range of grilled options. For variety, there’s Vanelli’s fresh pasta, Magic Corn’s sweet corn in a cup, Charley’s grilled-to-order chicken, and Bombay Chowpatty’s mango lassi in a clay pot.

Immerse yourself in VOX Cinemas

Watching a good movie is magical, but VOX Cinemas takes it to the next level. Enjoy the biggest and latest blockbusters at the first 4D cinema in Dubai. With 12 screens (including VOX MAX, VOX 4DX, and MyVOX) showcasing films in cutting edge surround sound technology, VOX transports your senses to a new dimension, making you feel as if you're inside the movie.

VOX also has a special offering for children. ‘Kids’ Theatre is the first of its kind in the region - a cinema built just for kids. It has brightly coloured interiors and seats where they can watch the best and latest kids’ movies in complete comfort.
