It’s Christmas Eve, and you haven’t even started buying those little stocking stuffers. What to do? We’ve got you covered. The following stocking-stuffer ideas can all be found at Uwajimaya grocery store in the International District, so you can get everything in one stop.

Asian facial masks

Uwajimaya stocks a wide variety of soothing facial masks from Asia to restore and revitalize skin. They help with brightening, whitening, tightening, hydration, and there are even a few that turn your loved one into a cute animal!

Car air fresheners

Choose from an array of Asian car fresheners. Start the new year with a new scent!

Salux bath towel

This is a perennial top-seller for Uwajimaya. The Salux cloth is part nylon and part polyester. It’s widely used in Japan and known for its ability to soften and smooth your skin.

Bamboo & beechwood kitchenware

Deck out your kitchen this holiday season with lightweight, durable bamboo and beechwood kitchenware. You'll find measuring spoons, cutting boards, bowls, boxes, chopsticks, rice paddles and much more.

Tools for making spam musubi & sushi

Uwajimaya has everything you need, including bamboo mats, knives, bowls, rice servers and rice cookers of all sizes (though probably not small enough to fit into a stocking...)

Iwako erasers

Iwako’s adorable “puzzle erasers” are the ultimate collectibles. You can get sets of animals, food, vehicles, sports, and holiday-themed erasers. Perfect for people who like kawaii things.
