Gift Ideas for the Japanophile

We like to think that we are a cultured bunch of elves up here, enjoying the food, traditions, and wares of different countries. One country we all definitely love is Japan—Raymond even visited Tokyo in 2013 on one of his trips! If you also have some Japan-loving friends in your life, here are some gift ideas for them.


This Donutella Plush Toy is so soft and cuddly and will be a perfect little companion for any Japan fan. Want to wear ears like Donutella? Check out this Donutella Ears Headband.

An earphone jack plug accessory is a kawaii little item to plug into your phone. (It also helps keep dust out of the jack.) This wee kitty cat is trying to catch the ball.

Your friend will love to tote this colorful Tokidoki handbag around to boldly display their love for kawaii characters.
