Hampers make great gifts as they are often customised to the occasion and give off a festive feeling. Give thought to the items you want the hamper to include. Some popular items in Hari Raya hampers include sparkling drinks, cookies, and chocolate. Hampers for the occasion can be found almost everywhere, from neighbourhood stalls to local supermarkets.
Did you know that yellow lilies represent gratitude? Flowers are charming and they make an appropriate gift for people of all ages. A flower arrangement with yellow lilies may be the perfect gift to express gratitude towards your neighbour for Hari Raya. Flowers can be purchased easily online and delivered to your recipient's doorstep.
