Advent calendar ideas by Rilakkuma and Lok

Christmas is slowly approaching, so it is time to start our annual Christmas gift ideas series. This year we decided to let our staff members and our office mascot Rilakkuma provide you with inspiration, as they know our products best.

Lok and Rilakkuma present some kawaii ideas for your advent calendar

Lok and Rilakkuma present some kawaii ideas for your advent calendar

Our packing fairy Lok is the first one to go. She is really an expert in the warehouse, so we asked her to pick some things she thinks are suitable to put in an advent calendar. After all these 24 little things are the first thing on your to do list if you are planning to make one as it has to be ready by December 1st. Her are some of Lok’s ideas:

1. Band-aids

With their kawaii designs and colors these band-aids are everything but boring.

Mini folders are really adorable and very suitable to hold receipts, little notes or stickers. We have a wide range with one or several pockets.

3. Push Pencil

You don’t see them too often anymore, but push pencils are a fun thing that was very popular in the 80s and 90s. Each pencil contains several tips, and once one is used up you take it out and push it to the back of the pencil, so that a new one is revealed.

4. Sticker sacks

Each sticker sack contains up to 100 stickers, so they are a great little treat for stationery lovers.

Squishies are a fun and cheap little accessory. Lots of them are scented, they look cute, come in lots of different shapes and colors and are very enduring.

Our favourite product of the week: pocket mirror squishy

Have we introduced you to our funny pocket mirror squishies already? We added most of them a couple of weeks ago to our shop, but this week the last one with happy colourful sprinkles followed. It is our favourite product of the week. The pocket mirror is super handy, as you can hang the squishy charm on your bag or cellphone and so never forget to take it. Still on the outside it is a soft squishy that you can squeeze and press.
