It’s that time of the year again. Cows, goats, sheep, and camels mingling with the traffic on the road, lavishly decorated stalls of animal feed set up every two feet down the street, not to mention the mounds of putrid animal waste adorning the roads wherever you go. The moo‘s and the baa‘s begin as the sun dawns and continue well into the night. You can hardly breathe for the rancid animal smells wafting through the air. Guess what? Baqra Eid’s here.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Baqra Eid or the animals that accompany it. In fact, it is safe to say that this Bari Eid is one of the most enjoyed, elaborately celebrated religious festivals for Muslims. And our beloved Pakistan steals the show when it comes to celebrating Eid-ul-Azha in its truest, purest essence. Not for the Pakistanis are those meat-delivered-to-your-doorstep qurbanis. No, we go all the way – from visiting the mandi to feeding the animals, from taking them out for midnight walks to setting out to purchase those colorful tassels and metal bangles for our beloved jaanwar, from giving the animals thorough baths on the eve of Eid to actually sacrificing them with our own hands the next day. And we have to admit, despite the manky streets and high decibel noises, we love, enjoy, and celebrate Baqra Eid in all its glory – despite the absence of the Eidi incentive!
At Tohfay, we realize that some of you might not be able to spend this glorious occasion in true desi fashion with your loved ones in Pakistan. And for this very reason, we have a whole range of exciting Eid gifts that you can send to your friends and family to let them know that even while being thousands of miles away, you are right here in Pakistan, celebrating Eid with them in their hearts and minds.
So hurry up, and visit www.Tohfay.com to check out all that we have to offer. There are scrumptious Eid themed cakes and finger licking-ly yummy mithais, clothes styled according to the latest fashions and trendy accessories, gift cards and vouchers from various brands, along with a whole lot of gift baskets and Eid hampers for you to choose from. You can even send your loved ones bouquets of fresh flowers, or perhaps a box of chocolates is more up your ally? And nothing says Eid Mubarak better than a quirky little greeting card, a wide range of which you can find at Tohfay.
Keeping in mind the requirements in every household when Baqra Eid rolls around the corner, Tohfay also offers a variety of appropriate gift items that you can send your loved ones to make their lives easier as they tackle the more cumbersome hassles of qurbani. Yes, you can send your mother, wife, sister, or daughter electronic choppers, grinders, and mincers, as well as a set of sharp knives which will make their lives easier when they begin the cooking. Or maybe she needs a refrigerator to store all that meat? How about – best of all – BBQ and grill sets? Or perhaps some Shaan masalas, anyone? Are you one of those people who prefer making a splash with their gifts? Or would you rather save your loved ones the trouble of going to the mandi to purchase the animal? For either scenario, Tohfay is here to make your life easier with its Qurbani services: send your loved ones the qurbani animal itself.
Yeh hui na baat!
Happy Eid to all of you out there from all of us here, and happy shopping!
