This Holiday Season in Japan you have been able to gift family and friends with your very own edible face on Japanese confectionery.
The holidays have been a bit different this season as people contemplated the feasibility of celebrating with loved ones in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. For those who planned a quieter Christmas and New Year, people were able to ensure that family and friends did not forget what they looked like by sending these distinctive gifts.
One of the most popular items on Rakuten’s gifting service this season was a series of macarons, dorayaki, and biscuits produced by Lina Stores, a company specializing in personalized gifts.
To order, it was simply a matter of attaching a selfie to the order form, specify the occasion to be celebrated, and the address of the lucky recipient. Unfortunately shipping was limited to Japan only.
