Asalamualaikum

I heard somewhere that giving Eid gifts is not a sunnah of Prophet Muhammad pbuh and is just immitation of non Muslims?  I heard we should avoid it?  Anyone have more info on this?

Salaams,

Wow! I've heard numerous narrations of Nabi saw giving gifts to kids and advising to share with the needy what you buy for yourself. Gifts are gifts, Eid is a perfect time to give/exchange gifts, it sounds like common sense and perfectly normal.

I'm sure the majority of ulema of ahlul-sunnah wouldn't deem it an immitation of non Muslims.

Are there any hadiths of the prophet pbuh giving gifts in Eid in particular?  (I think thats where the problem is?)

Yeah, I was talking about gifts on Eid. The narrations I heard about kids and needy were for Eid.

I'll try to look them up and post.
