We picked out a few cool Ramadan gift baskets and presents anyone would love to give (and receive!)
The best thing about Ramadan season? Receiving (ahem…we mean giving) the oodles of parcels filled to the brim with delicious treats. And while there’s quite nothing like the good old round jars filled with festive kaastangel, katetong, naastar and snow white cookies, we rounded up some more unique Lebaran gift ideas that are sure to impress.
Eid Gift Pack by Surely Someday Kitchen
We’re addicted to Surely Someday Kitchen’s Japanese-style baked goodies, and there’s no doubt their Eid Gift Pack will be a hit with your loved ones as well. The box is filled with scrumptious goodies like their pandan cocoa cookies (yum), their signature lemongrass ginger syrup, a bottle of orange pekoe tea and a beautiful Eid-themed scented wax sachet by Kaminari.
Surely Someday Kitchen Eid Gift Pack, starts at IDR 270,000.
The Brown Hare x The Hoppers Gift Set
Chocoholics will adore this special edition collaboration between local confectioners The Brown Hare and The Hoppers. The gift box consists of a selection of melt-in-the-mouth Japanese chocolate that comes in flavours like milk, dark, matcha and bitter, and more adult renditions with rum and baileys by The Brown Hare, along with an equally sweet drink of your choice by The Hoppers.

Eid Mubarak Carrot Cake by Pastry Culture
Naked cakes are a baking trend we will not ever tire of, and Pastry Culture’s bare carrot version for Ramadan takes, well, the cake! This comforting baked treat is an of-the-moment gift idea for your family and friends who may not necessarily have the biggest sweet tooth. Extra points for the teeny little bedugs for flourish.

Cotton and Tartlets
We first stumbled upon these delightful bite-sized tartlets at a pop-up market, and have been obsessed with them ever since. The teeny tiny tarts are beautiful pieces of edible art that comes in a range of exciting flavours like maple nuts, black cheese, pistachio green, butterscotch cookies, and even mango pina colada and white rum. Opt for The Collection gift basket that showcases all 12 of Cotton and Tarlet’s best flavours, in fact, we recommend ordering two boxes and keeping one for yourself.
The Collection by Cotton and Tartlets, IDR 110,000.
Ramadan Raya Cakes by TRF Homemade
Need a clean-eating option for a health-nut fiend? TRF Homemade’s must-try Ramadan Raya cakes will definitely pass the test. Traditionalists will go crazy over their nastar crumble cake (gluten free, no less!) made with vanilla sponge, pineapple jam, and a low fat cream cheese frosting. They’ve also got a non dairy vanilla speculaas with vegan salted caramel cake, and a coconut pandan chocolate cake that you’ll want to steal a slice of later on.
