The electronic Amazon.ae Eid Gift Cards are now available for purchase at a variety of balance amounts on Amazon.ae/giftcards or through the Amazon app.

Marking the end of the Holy month of Ramadan, Eid Al Fitr is centred around togetherness, with celebrations including family visits, feasts, and gifting between family and friends. The electronic Amazon.ae Eid Gift Cards offer a modern twist on ‘eiddeyyah’, the popular gift-giving Eid Al Fitr custom between family and friends. Amazon.ae Eid Gift Cards give shoppers the chance to choose what they want or need this Eid, from a selection of millions of local and international products across over 30 categories such as home, kitchen, fashion, electronics, and more, while conveniently using the electronic gift cards to pay for their purchases.

Abdulla Lutfi – who goes by the artistic signature ‘A.L.’ – is a dynamic Emirati artist on the autism spectrum who began creating art since he was a child, using his drawings as a means of communication before he could speak. His unique interpretation of the world is reflected in distinct black-and-white drawings bringing to life UAE landscapes and everyday scenes from Emirati life, all infused with Abdulla’s refreshing honesty and comical sarcasm. Abdulla’s passion for art stems from attention to detail, a black-and-white view of the world, and his sharp sense of humour. To celebrate Eid Al Fitr with audiences across the UAE, he created two intricate black-and-white designs which adorn the exclusive Amazon.ae Eid Gift Card collection this season.

On his collaboration with Amazon, Abdulla describes his work from an autistic artist’s point of view, explaining how he views and interprets the world in a unique way. Abdulla considers autism to be an advantage, giving him a non-conventional outlook on life which he enjoys translating through his art. The Emirati artist hopes to bring happiness to all through his contribution to Amazon’s electronic Eid Gift Cards, as he connects with millions of Amazon.ae customers through his designs.

Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President for Amazon Middle East and North Africa (MENA): “At Amazon, we always look to bring diverse backgrounds, ideas, and points of view into everything we do, committed to fostering an inclusive culture. With Eid being one of the most important celebrations of the year for audiences across the UAE, we are excited to be joining in on the celebrations while introducing customers to Abdulla Lutfi’s incredible talent as a local Emirati artist on the autism spectrum. Our electronic Amazon.ae Eid Gift Cards collection this year embraces his unique talent, while offering customers more ways to gift each other ‘Eiddeyah’ and shop during this joyous occasion.”
