14 Green Ramadan And Eid Must-Haves
Green grass slippers, a paper watch, foldable drinks bottle and more - Green up Ramadan season with these awesome quirky gadgets from Fire...
1. KAROTO VEGETABLE PEELER
Looking like it came from a giant's pencil case, the Karoto vegetable Peeler is a stationary-style kitchen accessory that lets you create culinary curls, swirls and wickedly sharp vegetable weapons.
Peel, shave and curl your vegetables with this classic, oversize pencil-sharpener design (10cm large).
2. Green Grass Flip-flops
Bring the outdoors in with comfortable flip-flops where the grass is greener on the other foot... Made with a solid design and remarkably realistic faux-grass, the Green Grass Flip Flops are perfect for anyone missing Allah's nature.
3. BIKE SPOKELIT
If you’re heading out for Tarawih prayers on your bike at night, it pays to be as visible as possible. That’s where the Bike SpokeLit comes in. Despite being a relatively titchy lamp, the SpokeLit has a dramatic effect on your visibility with 150 hours of light. Once you’re pedalling at a steady speed it will blur into a solid ring of light. Trippy!
4. LUCI INFLATABLE SOLAR LANTERN
Remarkably lightweight, waterproof and supremely portable, the Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern is an 8-hour task light, flash light and diffused lantern all rolled into one inflatable package. Perfect for clever campers and hard-core hikers, the Luci Lantern is an ingenious eco-friendly, real-world solution to the lack of electrical lighting in developing countries - providing environmental benefits to those in need.
5. AQUA ZINGER
Simply fill the cup of the Aqua Zinger bottle with your favourite fruity combinations, replace the filter, add water and blend for healthy, all-natural fruit shakes. Great for instant Suhoor shakes or Iftaar mocktails.
6. Vapur Reflex Bottle
Reusable, foldable, washable, freezable, attachable, identifiable. The Vapur Reflect Bottle is one of the coolest ways to replace those ugly plastic bottles; it can be folded up into a smaller pouch without risk of spillage, it's BPA free plastic (and stain resistant) and there even a caribiner for clipping to the outside of your bag.
7. PAPER WATCH
A novel gift for creative children which will put the next best Swiss watch to shame - because no matter how much you paid for it, a designable Paper Watch is totally unique. Think of it as a blank canvas you wear on your wrist.
8. GROW YOUR OWN PIZZA
Wouldn’t it be nice to be self-sufficient insha-Allah? To only use the freshest ingredients in your culinary creations? Yes, yes it would. Thankfully you can with a Grow Your Own Ingredients Kit, without the fuss of actual gardening. Simply pop the biodegradable prepared pots in a sunny spot, water them regularly and watch tomatoes, peppers and basil grow grow!
9. CYNICAL TEABAGS
Stressed out by the terrifying mosque committee? Struggling to get along with your in-laws? Sometimes, all you need is a nice cuppa.

10. DOODLE TABLECLOTH
Looking like something out of a giant’s school desk, the Doodle Tablecloth is crafted from 100% cotton which is washable at 40°C and resembles an oversize sheet of graph paper, complete with a set of 8 (normal size) washable markers. Perfect for daily doodling, tea-time tasks or a special sketching.
11. PHONE GRIPPY PAD
Just like a tree frog’s amazing feet, the Grippy Pad will hold all sorts of things in place. And all without a single magnet or velcro strip in sight. Made from silicone and water resistant, the grippy pad grips everything from iPads to Sat Navs, just slap it on your dashboard and push your items on top, ta-da!

My eco-sister is an obsessive cook, every vegetable has to be exactly 'this' size. Which is why the Obsessive Chef Chopping Board is an ideal gift to precision fanatic.
