While the year end signals the customary celebrations with your nearest and dearest, the unfolding pandemic has put a twist on the festivities. Show that you care to those that matter, no matter how far away, with these carefully curated gift boxes for Christmas or New Year’s from some of the best hotels in town.
Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Hilton KL takes into account that many of us will prefer to spend time indoors this year and have prepared lovely gift packages of the heart-warming feasts that can also be enjoyed in-house. Starting from RM180 nett, the Gift Boxes include delectable homemade festive indulgences such as fruit cake, chocolate pralines, and delicious Stollen with other add-on items such as a spa or F&B voucher. We would opt for the Festive Box Platinum (RM380) that includes Hilton’s signature hibiscus jam and a bottle of wine. Christmas dinners can also be brought to the comforts of your own home with a whole five-kilogram, oven-roasted turkey (above) that comes with stuffing and roasted vegetables for RM450.
Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur
For the month of December 2020 Le Meridien’s Christmas elves at ArtCacao have prepared an assortment of festive treats. Choose from gingerbread houses and Yule logs to the classic Panettone and Christmas puddings that have been artfully decorated to delight even the most discerning of tastes. Our personal favourite are the range of festive eclairs that come with individual flavours and designs in a set.
Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur
Get your far-flung families and friends in the mood of the upcoming festivities with a host of specialty treats inspired by the season from Bake by Banyan Tree. These delightful treats are handcrafted by Executive Pastry Chef, Fodil Baghal and his team of Pâtissiers, and will surely impress family, friends and even your business partners with its customised festive hampers. We love the innovative take of combining classically Malaysian flavours on the much-loved festive classic yule log with the Jackfruit Yule Log and a Chocolate Whiskey Yule Log, (RM170 each). You can also top up your sweet treat hamper with Banyan Trees EGift Cards redeemable for stays, dining, spa treatments or shopping at the Banyan Tree Retail Shop.

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur
One of its cuddliest members of staff, the Majestic Bear, makes it debut in this gifting idea which is paired with a limited edition afternoon tea home delivery (RM200 nett for the afternoon tea home delivery set only. Bear sold separately). The tea set is inspired by the very English tradition of afternoon tea from the hotel’s sister property of Monkey Island Estate Bray-on-Thames with sandwiches, sweets and the quintessential scones. The option of the furry friend to accompany this delicious afternoon treat (priced at RM150 nett) will surely brighten up the experience for the whole family.
