4 last minute gifts for the j-fashion fan in your life

Sometimes life gets away from us, and we’re still shopping for Christmas gifts less than 2 weeks before the big day. Of course, if you’re shopping for someone who is into Japanese alternative fashion, your options are even more limited. Shipping from other countries is dicey at this point. But never fear! Here are some gift ideas you can likely find within driving distance of you.


For many j-fashion fans, this manga (and its anime adaptation) were their introduction to Japanese fashion. You can find physical copies of the manga at Barnes and Noble (and in a pinch, you can always get a digital copy on the reading app of their choice).

Jewelry Box

There’s no shortage of accessories for fashions like lolita, decora, and gyaru, so help them corral their rings, headbows, and necklaces with a jewelry box. You can find trinket boxes at Michaels, Joann Fabrics, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Target or Walmart.

Fashion Dreamer

While it is not like its predecessor Style Savvy, Fashion Dreamer is a fun dress up game for Nintendo Switch that features tons of alternative Japanese Fashion. You can pick up a digital copy on the Nintendo store right up until Christmas day!

Mini Sewing Kit

Even if your Japanese fashion fan pays $300 for their dress, chances are they’ll still have to do some minor sewing repairs from time to time. A mini sewing kit is a great stocking stuffer. You can find them at Joann Fabrics, Michaels, Target, TJ Maxx, and Daiso.
