Get the feast ready!
Getting friends and family together over a delicious spread of food is the other great ritual of Eid, and as Eid al-Adha is all about commemorating the sacrifice of an animal, meat can play a pretty important part of the menu!
But there are lots of ways to enjoy your favourite foods – and make sure that you enjoy a fairly balanced day too. After all, there’s nothing worse than the feeling of being overly bloated afterwards!
Try to avoid preparing too many rich or heavy dishes – or at least, add lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to the feast to keep some variety! A colourful tossed salad or vegetable bowl is a great counterpart to a big meat-centred dish.

The gift of giving
Seeing someone’s face light up with a gift can feel amazing in itself – there’s nothing quite like seeing the glow when you have made them feel really loved and appreciated.
So what will you be giving people this year? Floral baskets or food hampers are always a fail safe way of showing your appreciation – everyone loves to have something tasty to enjoy, or a beautiful bouquet to brighten up the home!
If you really want to spoil someone and show them how much you care for them, then why not treat them to a little pamper? A TNS gift card is a sure fire way to win major points with mums, sisters and friends – and you might even want to sneak one in for yourself!
