There are 3 reasons why we recommend it!

・Size that does not take up space in your cupboard

An item that is sure to make your everyday meals more enjoyable.

Because it is wide, you can also place cutlery such as knives and forks.

The price is reasonable and perfect for when you want to give a little thank you.
It would also be a great gift for someone who loves hospitality.


It's best to avoid expensive items that the recipient will feel obligated to return.

When giving to a large number of people, it costs about 1,000 yen per person.

Even if it's a small amount, it should be around 2,000 to 3,000 yen, something that the recipient won't consider a burden.

Compact one

Choose something compact for a small gift.

Especially if you are handing over a meal in person, it can be difficult to take the large package home with you.
On the contrary, you may make the other person worry.

Practical items such as small plates that don't take up much storage space are great as gifts.

Based on the above points, if you are going to give tableware as a gift, we recommend the following.

Choose practical products that you would want to use yourself.

Recommended tableware gift examples

If you are interested in tableware as a small gift...

If you want to express your gratitude or appreciation to someone who has helped you, you may be confused about what to buy.
In such cases, we recommend choosing from tableware that you use every day. 

The idea of ​​tableware as a gift is that it is expensive and special, but there are also many practical and reasonable gifts.

If you like coffee, get a Japanese-style mug, or for a colleague who brings a homemade bento, chopsticks or a bento box.
Give someone something that suits their taste and that they can easily use every day.

At that time, if you include coffee and baked goods with the set, it will make them more happy.
