Holiday Shopping at the Morikami Museum Store

With Black Friday upon us, Small Business Saturday right behind it, and Cyber Monday bringing up the rear, the holiday shopping season has officially begun. We may be biased, but we think the Morikami Museum Store (in-person or online) simply can’t be beat when it comes to unique gifts with a decidedly Japanese flair. That’s why we’ve gathered some of our favorite items, best sellers, and great gift ideas into our Holiday Gift Guide here and on Pinterest. Explore the products below to get ideas for everyone on your list, and – a hint – feel free to use the pins on our Gift Guide board as your own personal wish list!
