Gift Ideas Kuala Lumpur
One of the things that has helped me get through various stay-at-home restrictions is letting friends know I’m thinking of them by sending gifts. Honing in on local suppliers, I think I’m helping, at least a little, our Malaysian friends sustain jobs and business. Here’s a list of some of the things I’ve sent or received recently that I think you might like too.
Gift Ideas Kuala Lumpur 2021
Plant Starter Set – Batik Boutique
Batik Boutique’s plant starter set (RM 179) is a fun activity for aspiring green thumbs. The box includes a batik planter, vintage mister, pot, seeds, and soil from garden experts Eats, Shoots & Roots. Instructions are included. The batik planter is hand-crafted by Malaysian artists using a wax-resist technique of fabric dyeing on 100% natural cotton. It is sewn with waterproof lining by seamstresses from marginalised communities in Malaysia. Place your orders here.
Wine & Cheese Box – Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur
Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is currently offering several gourmet boxes. We love the Artisanal Cheese Box Set (RM 256, without wine RM 128), but I’m sure sweet tooths will find the afternoon tea highly attractive too. The cheese box includes five types of cheese – French Bordeaux Brie, French Alps Camembert, 24-month aged Parmigiano-Reggiano, Swiss Cheddar, and Roquefort Blue. Accompaniments are Beerenberg strawberry jam, Australian honey, crackers, marinated olives, baguette, and a bottle of Argentinian Terrazas Reserva Range Malbec. These are available daily between 12 pm and 9:30 pm. WhatsApp +6012 288 2135 to place your order or find it on popular delivery apps such as TableApp, GrabFood, Foodpanda and Eatigo. Find their complete menu here and check out some of their food delivery items here.
Gift Ideas Kuala Lumpur – Birthday Box – Concubine KL
Concubine KL’s birthday box holds six signature cocktails, garnishes, a shaker and a few party favours. Priced at RM199, you might want to send one to your friend and one to yourself! Set up a Zoom date and you’re ready to celebrate! Concubine KL is open daily. WhatsApp +6 014 711 2185 or place an online order here.
Press-on Nails – The Nail Edge, Berry Shum
For your friends missing manicures, Press-On-Nails are a great alternative. They are reusable, easy to remove and only take five minutes to put on. What’s more, the colour lasts and lasts, no chipping like regular nail polish. Apply them when you’re in the mood and then stash them away until next time. More information and orders here.
Decoupage Tiffin Carrier – Dion Harper Deco
Dion Harper Deco is a social enterprise giving single mothers an income and new skills. The ladies make beautifully handcrafted decoupage tiffin carriers, which make exclusive yet affordable gifts. Two-tier and three-tier tiffins are priced at RM 155 & RM 175 respectively. Check them out on Facebook or Instagram @dionharperdeco or WhatsApp founder Dev directly on +6019 308 8958.
Gift Ideas Kuala Lumpur 2021 – Fruit Box – If Only KL
From their farm in Hulu Langat, the team behind If Only Restaurant harvests seasonal fruit to order and delivers on the same day. We love the mangosteens but we hear that their durians are mighty fine too. All fruit is pesticide-free and seasonal. Mangosteens, durian and rambutans are currently on the trees. It’s a great gift, especially for the health-conscious. WhatsApp +0172882243 to order.
Home Teeth Whitening Kit – White Republic
This home teeth whitening kit is fast, easy-to-use, cheap and effective. I’ve done the old school method in the dentist’s chair and this home kit is 10 times cheaper, not one little bit uncomfortable and gets equal if not better results. Free delivery within Malaysia and a 10% discount by using the code TheYumList here. Make sure you know the friend well you’re sending this too – no subtle teeth hygiene hints, please 😉
