Doki Doki is a monthly Kawaii subscription box from Japan Crate. Every month you’ll receive super cute Japanese items – accessories, stationery, plushies, and other adorable Japanese goodies.
December 2017 theme is Holiday Party!
DEAL: Use coupon code HELLO to save $3 on your first box!
Love this cover art this month! Instead of a multi-page booklet, this month’s insert was a simpler folded design.
It’s all about The Holiday!
There’s also a little comic and more fun stuff!
The middle of the booklet contains all the information about the items.
Everything in the December Box!
Dolphin Neck Pillow. First item in this box is a kawaii travel companion. This neck pillow will definitely help me keep comfy during long trips. Look at those dolphin eyes! Sooo adorable!
Rabbit Christmas Plushie. There are 8 variants for the Christmas plushie, and we’re so happy to get the rabbit.
It’s so furry and fluffy. The pom pom tail makes the plushie extra cuter!
The plushie also comes with a ball chain so it can easily be attached to bags or wherever you want to. Who wouldn’t love to bring this cuteness along? I love pulling those ears too!
Sumikko Gurashi Pen. For the Sumikko Gurashi pen, there are 4 variants: pink peach, orange tangerine, yellow lemon and blue ramune. We got the blue ramune, inspired by the lemon-lime flavored carbonated drink popular in Japan.
The pen’s cap design features the Sumikko Penguin, which is a river spirit that was blessed with “the moon tear” and transformed into a creature that resembles a penguin.
It actually smells nice with the lemon-lime carbonated soft drink scent. This pen is great to use for writing letters and even for journaling!
Hello Kitty Comb. This grooming item from Sanrio’s Hello Kitty is useful for keeping hair stylish even on the go.
Subscribers can get either a mirror or a comb, and we’re delighted to get this handy comb. It can be folded so keeping it in small purses is really easy.
Christmas Wreath Hoppe. Hoppe-chan in a holiday mood is featured on this kawaii wreath pin.
It can make any outfit feel extra festive, and it can also be used to decorate a tote or a lanyard. I like the little details of the pin, including the red polka dot ribbon, the beads in pastel colors, and the cute star on Hoppe-chan’s forehead! Plus the pin is a new format for Hoppe Chan! My daughter immediately pinned her on (I love that we can share!).
My Melody Stationery Set. This lovely set of stationery features My Melody. It’s so pink and girly!
It includes 8 My Melody letter sheets and 4 envelopes, plus a sheet of kawaii stickers.
Seal your envelopes up with these cute stickers!
The sheets are lined so you can write with ease. And that My Melody border in each sheet is so pretty!
Who wouldn’t love her kawaii-ness?
I’m having second thoughts whether to send notes with these or just keep them for myself.
Gudatema Christmas Charm. Saving the best for last!
The Gudetama Christmas charms come in 4 designs.
It comes in a perfect gift box too!
We got a lying down Gudetama. He looks very lazy, but still cute!
Is that a piece of an egg shell stuck on his butt cheeks? That made me and my husband cackle!
Gudetama never fails to make us smile, or even laugh with his funny antics! We love him!
Doki Doki Crate is always pretty fantastic and we even got a good laugh this time with the Gudetama charm! This month’s contents are not just cute but very useful as well. Everything is kawaii and festive, the items didn’t fail to provide holiday feels and cheers! Can’t help but feast our eyes and even our senses with these adorable goodies. This is a perfect subscription for those who want a dose of cuteness every month!
