Why the Headscarf is a thoughtful present

If you are a non-Muslim buying a gift for a Muslim friend, you might be a little confused about what is or isn’t acceptable to give as a gift. Here, we take a look at why a headscarf is a thoughtful present for a Muslim friend, as well as some other guidelines for finding a suitable gift for a Muslim friend.

A headscarf is a great gift for a Muslim friend, as you can choose something to fit their personality and individual style. There are so many different styles of hijab, you are sure to be able to find something to suit any tastes and styles. Headscarf accessories also make great gifts for a special Muslim friend. You can choose some matching pins. A box to keep pins in is also a wonderful gift – you can find some lovely designs to fit your friend’s personality.

It’s also a good gift because it will be well-used. Whilst not all Muslim women choose to wear a hijab, or any type of covering, those who do will usually do so on a daily basis. This means you are sure the gift will be appreciated and it’s something the recipient will always need – unlike some unwanted gifts which get put at the back of a drawer and forgotten about.

When choosing Islamic gifts such as a hijab or headscarf from a Hijab Store for a friend, there are some things you should keep in mind. Just like any other piece of clothing, it’s important to bear in mind your friend’s particular style. Think about the styles she usually wears, and what colours and patterns she prefers. Headscarves also come in different shapes and sizes, so you might like to check with your friend what she usually wears, as some suit certain face shapes better than others.

Finally, a hijab makes a great gift as it has a multitude of uses aside from keeping the hair covered. Many women enjoy using their headscarf to hold their phone or headphones in place, keeping their hands free for other tasks! A headscarf can also be used as a confidence booster, for example some women enjoy not having to spend as much effort on making sure their hair looks presentable before heading out for the way. The scarf can also be used to cover more of the body, for example to give privacy when breastfeeding in public, or to cover a bloated stomach after a heavy meal!


Online shopping advice, when to spot the bargains

Online shopping is one of the main ways to shop these days. Anything goes on the internet! You can buy clothes, furniture, technology and all kinds of services. It is extremely convenient and quick. However, online shopping comes with some cons as well. We have to be blind shoppers. We have to trust pictures on the internet and send money before we even see the real item. Here are my tips on safe online shopping. 

  • Shop at online shops that have a retail store. This will give it legitimacy and you know that you can go to the shop to check the item before buying online. Ylaptop and shopping bags, online shopping conceptou might think why not just shop at the store but I understand we are all busy and it is so much easier to shop through a few clicks and get it delivered.  
  • Stay away from shopping apps that offer cheap and discounted products and are not connected and do not look legitimate. A lot of the times these apps sell form cheap Chinese websites that don’t even use picture of the actual product. Have you seen a lot of websites using the same pictures for their items? They are reselling these wholesale items that are not good quality and are not shown as the correct item in the pictures.
     
  • Do not click on the clothing ads on Facebook. These are the same websites that are reselling cheap quality items. Sure, it is cheap but most of the clothes won’t even fit you properly no matter what size you get. Latest phenomenon has been the Wish app and website where you buy 50-80% reduced items. While it is a great idea and I am sure you might be able to find good bargains, I have seen many items that have pictures from the cheap websites. So, shop at your own risk and don’t trust everything you see on the internet.
