In the ongoing lockdowns and restrictions, we’ve somehow found ourselves halfway through 2021 with Father’s Day just around the corner. Buying a gift for men can be tricky, even when not in restrictive movement orders. So this year, let us help you give dad a gift that’s just as unique as he is.
Batik is a local art form that celebrates hand-made. At Batik Boutique, every fabric is hand-printed and hand-dyed by artisans across the nation; and the hand-crafted nature of batik making means that no two pieces are exactly the same. And just like batik, every dad is unique.
We’ve curated eight hand-crafted gifts to make gifting from a distance easy. We can help you go the extra mile by personalising gifts with embroidered initials, handwritten notes and gift-wrapping; all you have to do is add a delivery note at checkout.
Here are our top eight gifts that keep on giving for dad this Father’s Day.
1. Classic Batik Shirt
Whether you're after bold batik or a subdued print, our range of men’s batik shirts has a fitting fabric for every type of dad.
Designed to help you beat the heat, our breathable straight-fit batik shirts are made of 100% cotton. For dads that prefer a looser fit, you can simply unstitch the darts on the back of the shirts or drop our team a note at checkout.
Our collection of short and long-sleeved shirts include over 20 prints for you to choose from.
2. Cuban Batik Shirt
A new addition to our collection of menswear, the Cuban shirt fuses the traditional art of batik with a modern, contemporary cut.
The cuban shirt, also known as the guayabera, features a lapel-like collar, short sleeves, and a loose, straight fit. Lightweight and made of 100% lawn cotton, this open collar style is the perfect fit for the young dad and the dad young at heart. Do note this fabric is thinner than our classic shirt for a breezy style.
Pick from three pastel prints to transport dad from home to the sunny Caribbean.
3. Batik Boxer Shorts & Shave Gift Set
Give dad the gift of comfort and clean shaves with Batik Boutique’s Boxer and Shave set.
Each gift set includes 100% cotton batik boxers, a metal shave brush and shaving cream made in Italy all packaged in a handsome gift box. This gift set is the perfect gift for the dad who loves to stay groomed even if working from home.
4. Batik Necktie and Pocket Square Set
The batik tie and pocket square set is an ode to tradition and lovely addition of colour to any suit or smart blazer.
Hand-painted on natural fibres, each set includes a batik necktie and a matching batik pocket square with logo embroidery. We can also help you embroider dad’s initials on these products to add a personal touch to your gift.
5. Writer’s Set
If dad’s adjusting to his new #WFH normal, help him manage his to-do list or take notes from his Zoom meetings with our PU leather-bound artisan-made journal. Paired with a bamboo engraved tumbler, this is the perfect gift set for the writer dads in your life.
6. Batik Baking Set
Is your dad a self-proclaimed MasterChef? If so, this is the right gift for him.
The Olive Dinosaur adult baking set comes with a batik apron with adjustable ties, three assorted cookie cutters, one whisk and a sugar cookie recipe card. There is also a matching kid’s apron set for a fun afternoon of baking with the kids.
7. Wooden Tumblers
Our wooden tumbler is lined with stainless steel and its exterior is made entirely of bamboo, an abundant natural resource. Available in two designs, our tumblers include a tea strainer and keeps your drinks at the right temperature for up to 4 hours.
As a special Father’s Day treat, we’re giving five FREE tea bags with every purchase of a tumbler in collaboration with local herbal infusion specialist Rhymba Hills. Together, we named each flavour after our Malaysian dads while celebrating our unique, local herbs.
8. Business Card Holder and Batik Key Fob
The business card holder and key fob combo is the perfect gift for the entrepreneur dad.
Both the business card holder and key fob are made of 100% cotton, hand-blocked batik and PU leather exterior. Durable, lasting products for dad’s pocket that will prove handy for years to come.
In light of the new wave of COVID-19 cases, every online purchase of a men’s shirt is entitled to a free reusable, batik face mask - in assorted prints and while stock lasts. We are also delivering all through MCO 3.0! In Peninsular Malaysia, all orders over RM 200 qualify for free shipping. If your dad lives abroad, don’t worry - we ship worldwide and offer free shipping for orders over USD$100.
By shopping Malaysian-made and standing together in support of local enterprises, we can keep local craftsmen active - which ultimately boosts our economy during this trying time.
Gift with purpose this Father’s Day with Batik Boutique.
