Gift for Japanese friend w/ new baby?

Jump to last reply

I'm terribly excited to be visiting Tokyo in mid-January on a somewhat impetuous 5 day vacation. Even more exciting, I'm going to be able to meet up with a college friend I haven't seen for 10 years! She just had a baby a few months ago, and if the stars align (naps and whatnot) I'll be able to meet her son as well! I would love to bring a small gift but I'm not sure what would be appropriate as well as easy to pack (space will be limited). I thought originally I'd bring her a cute little group of cookies or similar, maybe maple syrup candies or something since I live in maple syrup country, but then I thought something for the baby would be nice.

FWIW I might usually give a friend a small hand embroidered 1st Christmas ornament since I like to embroider gifts for friends, but I'm not sure she celebrates Christmas really (I mean, I don't really either, but only from an American standpoint, I still have the tree and stuff). I like the idea of something handmade, but outside of a Christmas ornament I'm not sure what I would make..

Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
