A few things come to mind when you say the word Ramadhan: fasting from dawn to dusk, Bazaar Ramadhan, new clothes for raya, little envelopes for duit raya for children, and a plethora of other things.
One thing that doesn’t usually come to mind though, is Ramadhan gifts.
Nevertheless, they can be useful things to have, either as gifts to bring to buka puasa open houses, as a nice gesture, a corporate gift, or even just something for you to look forward to after a long day’s fasting.
Ramadhan’s almost over, but with just over a week left to go, if you’re still shopping for gifts, here is a list of items you can get from local startups, so that you can do so while also #SapotLocal.
1. Mutiara Figs Ramadhan Gift Box
Between Fig Sambals and other unique products, this Malaysian company is trying its darndest to introduce figs to Malaysia in the most relatable way possible. Their goal is to modernise figs for the modern Malaysian tastebud.

3. Tinton Ramadhan Gift Boxes
Tinton typically deals in Vietnamese spring rolls or ice cream, but for Ramadhan, they’re also offering gift kits.
These gift kits range from RM9 to RM55, all including Mariami Dates, some of them stuffed with dried kiwi and apricots.
- How to order: WhatsApp either 016-9679354 or 016-2463489. Orders need to be made at least 4 days prior to delivery date.
Not quite a gift box in the traditional sense, this charity drive has prepared an RM15 hamper of basic necessities to give out to some of the underpriviledged in Malaysia, like the cleaners and security guards.
For those looking to up their good deeds this Ramadhan, this is one way to go about it.
