Fukubukuro Giveaway

It's been such a long time since Little Maketto's last giveaway, no?
To celebrate Little Maketto's third birthday this month, I thought why not have a one-of-a-kind Little Maketto Fukubukuro Giveaway for all customers, followers and visitors!



What's a Fukubukuro Giveaway you ask?
Fukubukuro (福袋) comes form the Japanese words fuku (福) meaning luck and fukuro (袋) bag. Put those two words together and Fukubukuro means Lucky Bag. It is actually a Japanese custom where merchants make grab bags with mystery contents and sell them for huge discounts on New Year's Day. The Japanese go crazy for the Fukubukuro and often queue in long lines hours before the store opens to get the best bags.


I've always been fascinated with the idea of this mystery bag surprise so I thought why not let Little Maketto followers experience one. Instead of a Fukubukuro purchase, Little Maketto's birthday celebration is a giveaway, so no purchase is necessary.

As it is a Fukubukuro, I'm not suppose to reveal the contents of Little Maketto's Fukubukuro but I'll tell you this much... some of the items are old stock from Little Maketto blogshop that has not found a new home yet, some are new handmade items yet to make an appearance in the blogshop and some are just really cool imported gifts. Each Fukubukuro will contain a good mix items worth about RM215 (inclusive of postage, international participants please see fine print) and since it's LM's third birthday, I'm giving three Little Maketto Fukubukuro away. Intrigued yet?

It's really easy to participate. Just log in to the Rafflecopter widget below via your Facebook or register an ID and follow the instructions. To submit an entry you just have to comment on this blog post, but I recommend to at least "Like" Little Maketto as that will immediately gain you 5 more entries. Each person can earn up to 25 entries and since it's a random raffle, the more entries you submit the higher chances you get to win a Little Maketto Fukuburo. If you're already a Little Maketto follower here and on Facebook, this raffle contest is super easy for you!!

  2. hi there little maketto! i just know about the fukubukuro thing or "the lucky bag". i'm a fine art student and my artworks theme for my final year is about kimono. sure i would like it if i get fukubukuro giveaway as a collection of mine.

    and the main point i'm commenting here is, i would love it if you sell kimono cause it's hard to find original pieces of kimono in Malaysia. i have searched for it in Times Square, KL. i've already found a boutique that sell kimono aren't original. if you know where i can find kimono in Malaysia please inform me or it will be super great if you want to sell it here in little maketto blogshop. thanks. :)

    1. hi kira... thanks for your participation in the fukubukuro giveaway. hmm... Little Maketto selling kimono... not sure that will happen anytime soon. Lol. I've never even worn a kimono before!!!

      anyway sometime ago http://ohjapan1.blogspot.com/ advertised on my blog before... maybe you can check them out. I'm not affiliated with them or neither have I bought anything from them so I can verify their authenticity.

      there's also a mini japanese street in pavilion mall. i'm not sure if the shops there sell kimono or yukata but maybe you can check it out.

  3. Hello Little Maketto!!! The unique productions of your creativity always catch my eyes! However, I would want to see the rings at a broader size range. I am somehow a ring collector, unfortunately with small fingers. The ring sizes available on your site are always the size of my index finger but i prefer to wear rings on my middle or ring finger. So up till now I could just look at the beautiful design and sigh in the desire to have the rings of my size.

    ps: please do let me know if any how I can get the rings at smaller size via vivianloh45@gmail.com. =D

    Have a good day!
