Traditionally, the observance of Ramadan in Muslim societies allows people to reconnect and spend quality time with their loved ones and their faith. It is a month where Muslims reflect and give thanks for all they have been blessed with and, in turn, share these blessings with others.
There is an Arabic saying tahaabu, tahaadu that translates to “give gifts to spread love to one another.” During the holy month of Ramadan, this spirit of giving and generosity is rife at all levels of community - families, friends and even corporations. After a year of muted celebrations and staying in, the excitement is already in the air for socially distanced festivities this year - to a Raya with more cahaya (light or brightness).
If you are thinking about a special way to gift this Ramadan, our team at Batik Boutique can help. Alongside Batik Boutique’s artisan-made products, our gift sets have been curated in collaboration with other local brands: a woman-run cookie company The Skinny Bakers, local herbal infusion specialist Rhymba Hills and the rent-a-picnic-people Daily Sparks.
From baju baru and holiday homeware to scrumptious snacks and tasty teas - meet our three Cahaya Raya gift sets that are perfect for all your buah tangan needs.
Picture this: a traditional game is in full swing, the children are playing with crackers, someone is hogging the jar of treats and it's all thanks to you. Our Lepak Set has everything you need to liven up lepak time - two reversible shibori face masks, a batik Batu Seremban game set, a jar of crispy prawn rolls, a box of Pop Pop and two tubes of bubble blowing glue.
Finding a gift for a couple may sometimes prove to be a bit tricky with the added pressure of finding the right gift for not one, but two people. Fret not, as our His & Hers Raya gift set is the perfect gift for your Hari Raya functions that will make any host sayang you. The Sayang set is complete with a hand-painted batik sarong and kain pelikat, sweet Pandan Gula Melaka cookies and savoury Crispy Prawn rolls and an assortment of teabags.
With food at the crux of our nation, some of the most important conversations happen at the dining table; and our Borak set is here to add some opulence to the occasion. Set the table with an elegant batik table runner and coasters, brew up a storm with Rhymba Hills tea bags, then treat your loved ones to some delicious, homemade cookies. Striking, versatile and fuss-free, the Green Banana Leaf table runner and coasters are the perfect addition to any home table setting.
All gift sets include a complimentary pack of six duit raya packets in two unique designs and a picnic rental voucher from Daily Sparks.
By shopping with Batik Boutique, you can usher in Aidilfitri this year with gifts that keep on giving. Each thoughtful gift set you purchase goes towards supporting Malaysian businesses, batik artists, and seamstresses from low-income communities.
To get your hands on these gift sets, order yours online or in-store at 3 Jalan 26/70a Desa Sri Hartamas.
Salam Ramadan from the team at Batik Boutique. Wishing you blessings, joy and peace this Ramadan.
