Turning Japanese

shinzi katoh bento sauce bottles!

Considering a few of its contributions to the world (sushi, Gothic Lolitas, ninjas), there’s not much we don’t love about Japan. If you like it quirky and cute, don’t miss Omoi’s irresistible selection from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Shinzi Katoh Bento Sauce Bottles, $5
A long list of food allergies has your nephew in a perpetual tizzy. Hook him up with itty-bitty condiment containers. He can transport his gluten-free ketchup wherever he goes, and silly faces add a little levity to the situation.

Las Ponchas Letter Set, $6
Ever since your pal moved in with her boyfriend, you hardly hear from her. Drop a hint that you miss being in touch using sweet-faced notepaper, envelopes, and stickers.

Mimobot USB Flash Drives, $25-$55
The office tech guy has come to the rescue too many times to count. (Restart, duh.) Gadgets in the shape of kooky characters (Badtz-Maru, Chococat) show you appreciate his mad skills.

Golden Half Camera, $50
Your photography professor still bemoans the onset of digital, so he’ll get a kick out of the clever 35mm that captures two shots per film exposure.

Yum-Yum Bento Box, $17
From headband to ballet flats, your intern is always impeccably turned out. No reason her food shouldn’t be, too. With the fun cookbook, she can turn snacks into elves, penguins, and other creations that are every bit as adorable as she is.
