The Best Gift Ideas For When You Have No Clue What To Buy Them

by Danny Taing

Believe it or not, the holiday season is upon us. While the holidays are great, they can also be stressful; everyone knows one of those impossible-to-shop-for people. Maybe they seem like they have everything already, or they say, “I’ll love anything you get me because it will be from you!” or it’s a Secret-Nondenominational-Santa at your office or perhaps a cousin you haven’t seen in years. Whoever it is on your list, stress no more. Look no further than Bokksu’s Japanese snack selection to get you out of any gift bind.

It is always a safe bet to go with the incredibly popular pocky, which will never let you down. Go with the Winter Melty Cocoa Pocky – it’s a seasonal exclusive! This pocky melts in your mouth and is topped off with a dusting of cocoa powder for an extra chocolatey punch.

Japanese Tea

Check out our Japanese tea selection to find a fun and distinctive gift like Kagoshima Seicha Gift Box! You can find the perfect brew for any tea drinker out there. If they enjoy the midday pick-me-up from a caffeinated brew, choose Hoshino Matcha Latte sticks. When poured into hot or cold water, the powder transforms into a sweet mix of traditional and modern with matcha and milk. If you have an herbal tea lover to shop for, head over to the Ginger & Yuzu Herbal Tea. This brew combines hints of ginger and yuzu fruit, creating a flavorful blend reminiscent of summer.

Japanese Kit Kat

Kit Kat bars’ popularity has spread like wildfire in Japan, which has led to an explosion of new flavors. You can gift Japanese Kit Kats from Bokksu that you would never find in your local convenience store. They come in unusual and creative flavors such as Cranberry and Almond, Citrus Mint, Yuzu Sake, and even Cheesecake! Lastly, for the truly insatiable Kit Kat lover, gift a little of everything with this year’s variety box.
