My friends and partner are so thoughtful!

I also received 4 kokeshi dolls, some tabi socks and a kimono so it was a very japanese inspired Christmas, just how I like it!

Did you get any bento items for Christmas?

Little Cousins New Bento and Free Gifts

My little cousin decided after seeing my bento he wanted to have a go at making his own. So we scoured the Internet in search of a box suitable for him.

Unlike me he isn’t into cute, girly boxes so it took a bit of time. We finally found a great, not so little box on amazon for an amazing £8!
The box is two tiered, 900 ml and a very sturdy box.
Even though it is bright yellow it still looks fairly masculine and modern.

As we bought the box through my amazon account the item was delivered to my address and took an amazing 2 days to come, made more amazing by the fact there was no delivery charge!

When the box arrived I thought it would be nice to give him a little help. So I rummaged through all of my bento equipment and anything I had multiples of I put into the box for him.

He came around to my flat this evening and was pleased to see his box had arrived, he was even more pleased when he opened the box and found it full of goodies he wasn’t expecting 🙂

Birthday bento boxes!

So here are some great bento boxes I was given for my birthday from a colleague. I was really surprised and grateful for them! They come in a range of sizes so are great for families or groups of friends and also great for people on diets with portion control. As they were a gift I’m not sure where to get them from but good luck hunting!
