For Muslims around the world, Eid is meant to mark both the end of the Ramadan fasting period and the end of the annual pilgrimage to the holy site of Makkah. And if you are looking to purchase a basketball themed gift for your Muslim friend to mark the Eid holiday, or you are looking to purchase a gift for a basketball loving family-member on this day, then we have just the right gift selections for you.
Below, we are going to review the best Eid gifts for basketball lovers that they will definitely enjoy. These gifts are not only thoughtful and sentimental, but many of them can be enjoyed by the entire family on Eid day and many days after.
What is Eid?
Eid, in Arabic, translates to festival or feast. In Islam, there are two major Eid’s in the calendar year, both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. Eid al-Fitr is a three-day festival and is generally viewed as the smaller Eid, as compared to Eid al-Adha, which lasts for four-days.
Eid al-Fitr, the smaller Eid, is meant to mark the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month and month in which Muslim’s undertake fasting and the abstinence from food and drink from sunrise to sunset. Eid al-Adha, again the larger Eid, is meant to commemorate the end of the Hajj, or the annual pilgrimage by millions of Muslims to the holy city of Makkah.

We actually purchased one and have been really impressed with its capabilities and the basketball’s reflective abilities.
