“There are those that give with joy, and that joy is their reward,” quoted Kahlil Gibran. Several studies show that when people spend time thinking about a gift for someone else, they feel closer to the person, and that makes them happier even if it does nothing for the recipient.
As we approach the end of a challenging year (my-my, where did 2020 “zoom” by?!), we may or may not be ready for 2021, but let’s be ready to give wholeheartedly. Most of our get-togethers and work meetups might have been conducted via Zoom this year rather than physically, but that shouldn’t stop us from appreciating the ones who brought us joy. Our founder’s message for this holiday season: “While MCO may be conditional, love isn’t.”
Batik Boutique was built on the bedrock concept of giving with purpose. What do we mean by “purposeful giving”? Imagine if you could give your loved ones or work associates handmade gifts that give back to the larger community. Each thoughtful gift you purchase for him, for her, for your kids, or as corporate gifts, will go towards supporting local artisans who make a living by crafting one-of-a-kind batik masterpieces.
We put much thought into keeping the long-standing culture of batik-making alive; that you can now share with your loved ones and generations thereafter. If you’re browsing Batik Boutique from abroad, no worries—we ship globally as well and even offer FREE worldwide shipping with orders of $100 USD or more. So go ahead, get a gift that keeps on giving.
Unique Batik Gifts for Her
If she’s mad about organization, then look no further than our lovely Organizer Set. We’ll insert hand-written notes, available upon request (just let us know your message). Each Organizer Set comes with one (1) Zip Pouch in a variety and one (1) Card Holder Wallet featuring nature-inspired themes in a beautiful gift box: Grey Peony, Blue Nautical Fern, Black Fern, Teal Sawit and Brown Bloom.
Worn long (touching the knees) or short (below her waist line), a Kimono lends a classy, finished look for any occasion such as a trip around town, a night out, or even lounging at home. Our hand-painted, eco-dyed kimono is one size fits all and made from 100% luxurious silk. Consider it a must-have sustainable fashion piece to her wardrobe.
From light and airy, to silky and elegant, you can never go wrong with a scarf that’s hand-picked to accentuate her unique sense of style. We make 100% natural silk shibori scarves, as well as lightweight cotton eco-themed scarves, in a myriad of colours and patterns. Our popular premium quality shibori scarves are hand-dyed by artisans using a resist technique of fabric dyeing called shibori using eco-friendly, low-impact dyes.
Nothing can separate a woman and her bags! Our limited edition Tote Bags and Crescent Bags are rich in batik detail and character. Slung over her shoulder to rest under her arm, our Tote Bags are versatile day to day key pieces she’ll be proud to add to her wardrobe. Select from our premium hand-blocked Malaysian batik canvas bags; fashionable crescent sling bags; or even simple totes for her weekly grocery runs.
Inspire her to accessorize in style and at the same time create a positive impact for the artisans who have created such chic batik jewelry. Select from our dainty gold or silver pineapple necklace that comes wrapped in a lush velvet pouch; cute handmade claypop earrings; and eco-dyed 100% shibori silk-wrapped, hand carved wooden bangles in rainbow colours for a beautiful accessory.
Batik Gift Sets for Homemakers
Batik has come so far that it truly deserves a place in your home beyond the wardrobe.

Our Homeware Sets are hand-crafted using a wax-resist technique of fabric dying on 100% natural cotton.

Another staple in any man’s wardrobe is the quintessential batik shirt—bold, loud and stylish. It’s comfy enough for everyday casual daywear, formal office gatherings, and vacations. Made from 100% light and airy natural cotton fiber, our premium quality batik shifts for men are hand-painted using a traditional block printing technique and available in a vast array of creative colourful patterns you won’t find in boring neutral-toned men’s departmental stores.
