This July marks Omiyage's birthday... our fifth birthday! Which is pretty amazing... and a bit astounding. Time really does fly when you're having fun!
Of course, July also means birthday treats... and the best treat of the year is always our Surprise Packs!
For five years, we've made surprise packs an annual event - carefully curating an assortment of cute and colourful things, placing special orders, adding handcrafted details and wrapping it all up with lots of handcrafted love.
No promises or grand proclamations, but a quiet warning that this might be the last year we offer these birthday surprise packs. To avoid disappointments, we made twice as many as usual. Grab yours while they last.
This year's edition features a trio of tags and a twine tassel. Pretty cute, right?! The Omiyage version of a classic brown paper package, if you will.
Choose your favourite colour for a customized surprise - and don't worry, not everything inside the yellow pack is yellow, colour coding just helps to keep things organized during the packing process and to avoid duplicate items when ordering more than one pack!
Want a peek at a few of the goodies inside? Here we go...
The sweetest tag sets... a great mix of shapes, sizes and materials plus a pair of handcrafted tags in each pack - a little useful inspiration, if you will! And don't forget - the tassel tag on the outside of the package can be reused too.
Our new favourite pens direct from Japan - twin tipped and perfect for addressing envelopes and writing colourful letters. The memo pads are pretty sweet too!
Vintage stamp sets packaged with love - and washi!
There are also three rolls of washi tape in each pack, cute illustrated stationery items and more... each pack includes 14 (yes, fourteen!) items and is valued at up to $50.
You'll even find clever Snail Mail Forever postcards from Q&A Letterbox... don't forget to look on the back for a special message. One lucky person will win a letterbox from Q&A featuring a curated selection of cards.
We've been offering lots of sneak peeks over on Instagram throughout the process. Pop over there if you'd like to see more.
So far, blue has been by far the most popular colour - which colour will you choose?
