It’s the time of year when I have to start thinking about Christmas presents. When I first came to Japan, I bought Japanese presents for my family and friends back in the UK. Over the years, I have bought them fans, chopsticks, sake cups, sake, laquerware, tea, ao-jiru (green barley grass drink), ceramic teapots, Japanese sweets, books about Japan, Japanese beauty products…etc.
I wonder what to buy them this year. I don’t think they need any more sake cups or teapots or fans. Every year, I walk around the department stores in my city thinking, “What can I buy?” “What will they like?”
It is time to start doing that again. I want to get all my Christmas shopping done early. I don’t want to leave it to the last minute. But I wonder…what can I buy?
