Romantic Chinese New Year exhibition in Hong Kong

A dream in pink. Even though the Chinese New Year celebrations are already over, there are still lots of colourful exhibitions going on in Hong Kong. In the shopping mall Langham Place we saw a very romantic one. As Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year were really close this year this installation combines both celebrations. The pink Chinese peach blossoms, peacock couples and hearts have a traditional touch, but can also be seen in the context of love. It’s no surprise that lots of couples got their pictures taken in front of the different installations.

We think the exhibition is super kawaii. Doesn’t it fit perfectly to our shop?

Valentine’s Day craft: Washi Tape heart

Just in time for Valentine’s Day we embellished our office with Washi Tape. We just took a couple of our pink Washi Masking Tapes and stuck a big heart on one of our white office walls. The whole project didn’t take longer than 10 minutes and was lots of fun to make. You can do any shape you want or write any text you desire.

It is a great and super easy way to decorate for Valentine’s Day. You can surprise your sweetheart with a personal love message or take your picture with your Washi Tape creation to give it away as a card.

Have you heard of White Day?

We have not, until today. White Day is a big thing in Japan and related to Valentine’s Day. Apparently on February 14th only girls and women give Valentine’s gifts to men. Exactly one month later, on March 14th, it’s time for the males to pay back. They buy gifts for the women who they received presents from, usually cookies, jewelry, chocolate or lingerie, particularly of white colour. Some “unofficial” rule even says that the men’s gift has to be three times as expensive as the one they got from the woman. Isn’t that a crazy tradition? This “custom” is also celebrated in South Korea.

So happy White Day to all Japanese women, who probably enjoy the day a lot more than the men, running around in panic trying to find a good gift. Here is something we suggest for next White Day, based on what we learned about that tradition now: Make some nice white chocolate in the cute Rilakkuma molds (self-made stuff is a good key to the heart of a woman) and top it with a nice Rilakkuma chocolate cellphone charm (combines jewelry with sweets – a perfect match).

5 Days until Valentine’s Day

Now this is certainly a Valentine’s Day gift you don’t find every day, as the Japanese Re-Ment miniature toys are still not very known to the general public, at least outside of Japan. So let’s make them today’s suggestion for our Countdown for Valentine’s Day. By giving away a surprise blind box or even the whole set of this adorable heart sweets Re-Ments you can pretty much be sure to have gotten a unique present. Plus the miniature figures in the shape of hearts are just super kawaii.

6 Days until Valentine’s Day

Combine cute with useful. Valentine’s Day is not just about cheesy romantic stuff that you will never use again. It’s also about cheesy romantic stuff that is quite valuable. Like that Rilakkuma plush wallet which is today’s gift idea in our Countdown for Valentine’s Day. Because everybody needs a wallet. Even if you don’t use it for money, it’s always handy to have a little bag to store things. And this one is incredibly fluffy, incredibly hearty and incredibly cute. That’s why we think it will make a really good Valentine’s Day present.
