Japanese Gift Ideas for Your Loved One

Japanese Gift Ideas for Your Loved One

As Valentine's Day approaches, the quest for a meaningful and unique gift begins. This year, escape the ordinary and embrace extraordinary Japanese gifts from talented Japanese artisans. Each of these carefully curated picks from our collection tells a tale of craftsmanship, tradition, and the timeless beauty of Japanese craft.

Noshi Flower Vase

Go one further than just a bouquet of flowers. A simple and elegant vase, the Noshi Flower Vase is a testament to Japanese minimalism. Taking full advantage of the bamboo's texture, the subtle grain adds a natural finish to the piece. Such a wonderful vase is more than enough reason to gift flowers more often than just Valentine’s Day.


Chikuseiko Incense

If your loved one struggles to find a balanced aroma that can fill a room without an overpowering scent, Chikuseiko Incense may just be the perfect gift. Each of the six scents is gentle and welcoming. They generate very little smoke making them safe for use in small indoor spaces. The range includes earthy scents of bamboo, pine or sandalwood through to subtle floral aromas of rose, plum or cherry blossom. 

Hiba Wood Bath Salts

A bath lover’s dream. The Hiba Wood Bath Salts are arguably the most relaxing bath salts you will ever come across. The warm forest scent of Aomori hiba fills the room, allowing for a truly relaxing soak. Unwind together or gift a tranquil experience of a calming hiba bath alone (that one will really resonate for parents of young children), either way, you can’t go wrong with a gift like this. 

Hiba Wood Candle

Set the mood with the warm flicker of a Hiba Wood Candle. Handcrafted from Aomori hiba wood oil, this candle not only illuminates your space but also emanates a calming, forest fragrance that captivates the senses. Light it as you share a quiet moment together and let the soft light spread throughout the room.

Makoto Komatsu Frosted Glasses

Raise a glass together with a Makoto Komatsu Frosted Whisky Glass or cocktail glass. The exquisite design and unique shapes are sure to delight your loved one. Whether it's a shared whisky moment or a clink over a candlelit dinner, these glasses are a vessel for celebrating and creating cherished memories together.
