HOLIDAYS GIFTS

It?s the most wonderful time of the year. File away thoughts of work and let the good

times roll in.

 

 

The snow-clad pine trees may be missing but Malaysians celebrate the year-end holidays in their own way with as much exuberance as those in the West. No matter the place, gifts go hand in hand with holiday and festive seasons. So, what authentic gifts can you buy in Malaysia?

 

Batik

 

Available in the forms of textile, apparel and decor items, the ?batik? makes one of the most popular gifts here. The colourful ?batik? features a wide range of designs from floral to geometric patterns and landscape. The most common fabrics used are cotton, silk and rayon. The east coast states of Terengganu are famous for their batik collection.
