Who gives Eid money?
In many Muslim cultures, it is customary to give money or gifts to children on the occasion of Eid. This is often referred to as "Eidi" or "Eidiyah". Typically, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other older relatives or family friends give Eidi to children as a way of celebrating the holiday and spreading joy and blessings. However, the practice of giving Eidi is not mandatory and may vary depending on the traditions and customs of different Muslim communities.
How much money should you give for Eid?
The amount of money to give for Eid (Eidiyah) can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as the number of children to whom you are giving, the traditions of your community or family, how close you are to the children, and your financial situation. In the UK, parents typically give Eidiyah gifts ranging from $20-$100 per child, while other adult relatives or neighbors may give around £10-£50 per child. It is generally considered acceptable to give different amounts of money based on a child's age, but if you are giving Eidiyah, it is recommended that you give it to all the children in your family or community.
