This Raya will be unlike any other. While open houses, balik kampung and visiting people who aren’t your immediate family won’t be allowed, you can still share the love and spread the joy by gifting thoughtful goodies to your friends and extended family. We have selected some pretty and delectable items that capture the heart of Raya and will be welcome additions to anyone’s home or kitchen.
Batik Boutique has collaborated with Picha Eats this Raya to bring you a selection of beautifully crafted artisan made homewares, eco-friendly gifts and snack bags. These heritage inspired gifts are ideal for celebrating Eid at home and range from eco-friendly homewares including placemats, coasters, tumblers and straw pouches to snacks by Picha Eats, which supports refugee mothers and their families, providing them a sustainable livelihood. Your gift goes a long way.
There are four gift sets available for Raya – the Ketupat Set (Ketupat Bag from Batik Boutique and date cookies from PichaEats), Santai Set (coasters from Batik Boutique, pita chips and chutney, both from PichaEats), Minum Petang Set (eco-friendly gifts from Batik Boutique, pita chips, chutney and date cookies from PichaEats, and organic Hibiscus tea from Tea Bird Tea) and the Makan Set (a placemat and coaster set from Batik Boutique, spicy anchovy relish and Garam Masala, both from Aunty Kel’s). All sets include a packet of Duit Raya Envelopes and prices range from RM189 – RM249 per set. You can customise your greetings and make bulk orders too.

Pastry chef Valen Teh has created appetising Raya gifts to let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them this festive season. It’s a sweet spin on local delights with these Malay-inspired macaroons. The Divine Raya Gift Set shines a spotlight on his two contemporary limited edition offerings – the Pulut Tai Tai Macarons and the Onde Onde Chocolate Bon Bons. The macarons were inspired by the nyonya kuih delicacy of the same name, often eaten with a dollop of kaya while the bonbons were inspired by the original glutinous rice ball dessert with a gula melaka filling.
To celebrate Raya, why not bond over with the fam over a not-so-traditional afternoon tea? Serve up Valen’s Patisserie’s Raya Dessert Indulgence Set with Mini Valen’s Patisserie Signature Pandan Cendol Entremets, Pulut Tai Tai Macarons, Mini Yuzu tarts, Onde Onde Chocolate Bon Bons, Mixed Berries Pavlovas and Chocolate Trianons on your best dishware. It’s so easy to bring exquisite pastries to your doorstep (and into your mouth).
