Sending gift boxes to cherished ones has long been part of the Idul Fitri celebration in Indonesia. Adorned with Ramadan-themed decoration, the gift packages are mostly composed of jars of cookies and sweet tidbits.
Aside from cookies, a number of brands have also created gift baskets with creative items, and of them is artisanal soap.
Bandung-based homemade soap brand Don’t Drop the Soap posted on Instagram two types of gift sets that mainly consist of soap bars, traveling soap (pocket-sized shredded soap) and a succulent plant, with prices start at Rp 120,000 (US$8.05).
“These handmade soaps are made of organic ingredients that won’t dry out your skin even if you use them often,” wrote the brand.
Similarly, another artisanal soap maker, Soap Addict, is offering three types of gift boxes called Bundle A, B and C. Bundle A contains a soap bar, goat milk hand cream, a handmade brooch created by accessories brand Bumbleberry, foaming net and card. All items are encased in a box with prices starting from Rp 80,000.
Established in 2013, Soap Addict uses natural ingredients without paraben and chemical compound sodium laureth sulfate (SLS). Their boxes can be ordered via Shopee.
For gifts with a bittersweet flavor, you may want to check The Brown Hare’s Instagram.

The Basic consists of a big box of chocolate, hot ginger drink from beverage brand The Hoppers, a wooden spoon and a card with prices starting from Rp 195,000. Different varieties are available for the big box of chocolate, such as milk, dark, rum, Biscoff and Baileys.
