Baron Fig Confidant
Yes, everything can be done digitally now, but that’s what makes a good notebook feel like such a luxe gift today. Between charcoal and light gray, there’s two chic choices to help someone jot down their thoughts and organize their day.
Muji Aluminum Fountain Pen
Nothing signals adult like a fancy writing contraption. With its sleek, silver case, this aluminum pen from Muji looks deceptively expensive – though it’s affordable enough for your everyday doodling and list-making needs.
Tortoise Shop Tenugui
These Japanese towels can be used as almost anything – table napkins, dish towels, gift wrap, or even headbands! Choose from a variety of colorful prints to brighten anyone’s daily life.

Bananaya Vinyl Collectible Figure
Need something fun, weird, and kawaii for that friend who adores little novelties? Bananaya is here for you! So loveable, they’ll want to collect all four kitties that dwell in bananas (of varying stages of ripeness).
Pure Apple & Honey Gummies
These beloved sweet-and-sour gummies can be found in every convenience store across Japan. They’re the perfect snack to keep in purses, cars, or just to eat all at once! Now available in another seasonal fall flavor, Apple & Honey, that will disappear all too soon.
Machi Koro Bright Lights Big City Card Game

Declare your love for boba and your bros with this sweet pin. Buy one, or even a pair, to fasten on tote bags, jackets, or backpacks for a cute statement.
Legend of Zelda Ocarina
Bring the Zelda games to life with your very own ocarina! Learning to play the vessel flute won’t help you solve puzzles, enter temples, or travel back in time, but it will summon the nostalgia of all those adventures you’ve been on with Link.
Balconi Pro Dripper
One of our favorite local coffee shops just across the street from Giant Robot is Balconi Coffee. There you will find beautifully crafted coffees, from espresso to siphon. However, if you choose to brew some coffee at home, try out their Pro Dripper. It's an easy way to brew yourself a hot cup of coffee.
Ethiopia Kochere Lot 2 from Take Flight
Roasted in Los Angeles, Take Flight is taking a new approach to coffee by introducing Australian, Nordic, and American roasting techniques. This particular batch boasts notes of cranberry, lime and currant while not being too acidic. This coffee is also not too dark, which creates a pelasant experience for non-coffee drinkers as well.
