 A Mugful of Joy

A great hand-sized gift package for a colleague that always helps you out at the office or a friendly neighbor who you enjoy your daily chat with. 

Pack our Cats In Sunny Spot Kutani Mug with some colorful teabags and candy or cookies. If your friend enjoys chai, maybe set a stick of cinnamon or some decorative sugar sticks inside the mug.

Place the goodies inside the mug. We placed some filling on the bottom of  the mug to give height to the teabag and sweets. 
Prepare a transparent plastic wrapping bag that is about twice the length of the mug's height. Place the mug inside the bag and tie a ribbon to close.

Put on a Smile with Sakura Blossoms 

If you are looking for a small gift for someone who loves Japanese green tea or someone who has always wanted to try a cup of Japanese tea at home, this set will truly be appreciated. 

This package includes the elegant Heian Sakura (cherry blossoms) Mino Ware Japanese Teacup, a coaster and tea spoon crafted from cherry bark. A wonderfully packaged set that will make drinking Japanese tea a pleasurable and relaxing experience.

To add to the sakura motif, we wrapped the box in the Pink And Green Sakura Chirimen Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth. The receiver will enjoy the wrapping and the inside of this exquisite package. 
Perfect for the soon-to-come sakura season!

Take Along with a Bento Box

Are you looking for a gift to send to someone who enjoys an occasional Japanese-style bento box lunch? Or someone who is about to start school or a new job in April like in Japan and needs to take a bento box lunch? This chopstick set is the perfect accompaniment for bento box lunches. 

We folded a small Furoshiki wrapping cloth in an auspicious plum pattern with a set of Yamanaka lacquerware chopsticks. And we used a Kaga Mizuhiki Decorative Rubber Band to tie the two items together. The furoshiki can be used to wrap the bento box and the artful band to secure the lid of the bento box. 

Place the set on colorful paper and wrap with transparent plastic wrap.

Uniquely Darling Dolls

Amaze someone who loves handcrafted items with this adorable little friend. 
Naruko Kokeshi Dolls are wooden dolls made in Iwate Prefecture located in the Tohoku (northeastern) region of Japan. They are painted with adorable facial designs with tied-up bangs and make a cute squeaking sound when their heads are slightly turned.   

These adorable kokeshi dolls were initially made as toys, and later were sold as souvenirs to travelers who visited hot springs to soothe their weary bodies starting almost 150 years ago. Soon after, they were cherished as lucky charms. 

This kokeshi doll comes in a cute pink box, so we just neatly tied it with a Kaga Mizuhiki Decorative Rubber Band. This pocket-sized kokeshi doll is sure to make for a wonderful gift to carry around as a good luck charm!
