Like MissMuffcake, one of my goals this year is to finish decluttering and organising my home. I’m doing it room by room and my kitchen is almost done. I love bringing back cute kitchenware from my Japan trips so here’s a few things you can buy online to create a kawaii kitchen. Most will need you to use a forwarding service to order outside Japan but it’s easier than you think and worth the effort for such cuteness! There’s a couple of international options too though.
I am very tempted to get one of these neko santoku knives from Bento&co. They’re well-priced for a Japanese knife and the cute cats would make chopping vegetables much more fun! Shipping is available worldwide.
You’ll need a cutting board for that and Hello Kitty has a cute one as part of the new breakfast collection at Sanrio Japan. It has designs on each side so you can use them for different types of food – or keep one side perfect for display on the counter.
If you don’t want to use a forwarding service, ARTBOX have a great selection of Sanrio homeware and kitchenware from Japan and ship internationally from the UK. I love all the squishy magnetic clips – you can stick them on your fridge to hold recipes or use them to keep your snacks sealed up.
I spent quite a while organising my tea cupboard and love to store loose tea and teabags in pretty metal tins instead of flimsy cardboard boxes. I don’t know why I keep forgetting to visit Karel Capek in Japan – they sell an amazing range of tea with super cute packaging. I really want this Rilakkuma collaboration tin, full of peach tea.
I did bring back lots of cute stuff from the Fuku Fuku Nyanko cats range at HAPiNS including an oven glove and microfibre cloths. I wouldn’t mind adding one of these wall clocks too – they’re much more kawaii than my oven timer!
