Doki Doki brought WINTER WONDERS to the December 2021 box, a fun way of celebrating winter for us who love festive trinkets and everything kawaii! From Sanrio to Disney and everything in between, this box has all the merch to add a touch of cuteness to the holiday season. Expect licensed items and some unique goodies which might be hard to find outside Japan!

Snowy Shiba Plushie. Ready for cuddling on a snowy day, here’s an adorable shiba plushie! Subscribers will receive 1 of 2 plushie designs. Mine is pink and it looks absolutely cute with that bib and hat. If you already have enough plushies to cuddle, you can also add this to your tree for a festive decor.

Festive Disney Ornament. Speaking of festive decors, here’s one from Disney! Yes, it’s a licensed merchandise, giving us a little bit of Tokyo Disneyland to display in our homes. Subscribers will receive 1 out of 6 kawaii designs. They’re really small and they remind me of Tsum Tsums!

Sumikko Gurashi Chapstick. Doki Doki says no to chapped lips this season, that’s why they included a lip balm in the box. It’s not a regular chapstick because it features the cute Sumikko Gurashi gang and it’s also flavored! Subscribers will receive 1 out of 6 flavors.

Sanrio 2022 Planner. To help us get organized as we say hello to a new year, here’s a cute planner filled with Sanrio characters! I received the Little Twin Stars design, but other subscribers may also receive the My Melody one. Each page already has designs, so all you have to do is write down your plans, as well as important events and other things you need to remember. The monthly pages are really nice. There’s only a small space dedicated for each day but this is great if you simply want to have an overview of your whole month. The planner is also thin and not bulky! Perfect!

Dessert Blanket. Nothing beats cuddling under a blanket on a cold day. This one is super cozy and soft, a perfect companion for your well-deserved holiday break. For a dash of kawaii, they added cute dessert inspired designs, including the ever popular Japanese mochi! How adorable!

I can never stop gushing about how cute these items are! Doki Doki really knows what will satisfy a kawaii lover’s heart and it’s evident in every box filled with licensed merchandise from Japan. This month, what caught our attention is the Disney ornament! It might be impossible to travel to Tokyo Disneyland at this time which is sad, but this cute and festive decor definitely made us smile. All in all, it’s as festive as they promised the box to be!

The box still has a COVID-related shipping surcharge. However, if you want to get regular boxes of items that are exclusive to Japan and you have an extra budget, this is still one of your best bets.

Of course, our kawaii Japan goodies arrived in an equally kawaii box, with a booklet featuring amazing art on the cover! Take a look here:

Doki Doki is a monthly kawaii subscription box from Japan Crate. You can subscribe to the box for $45.95 each month. Every month, you’ll receive super cute themed Japanese kawaii items – accessories, stationery, plushies, and other adorable Japanese goodies. It’s a reader selection on your best pop culture subscription boxes list!

FYI: The box price is normally $35, but there’s currently a Covid-related shipping surcharge rolled into the price of the box.
