MUST-BUYS AT TOKYU HANDS SUNTEC CITY STORE

Today, the third Tokyu Hands establishment opens in Suntec City and brings with it a wide range of products that are proudly made in Japan. With over 15,000 items waiting to be discovered, the Tokyu Hands Suntec City Store made shopping a bit easier with dedicated themed corners. These include:

The Japan Difference 
Cosmetics, makeup tools and personal care supplies that are all made in Japan.

Love Writing
This corner showcases a selection of stationery like writing instruments, notebooks and other office supplies.

Stationery W/Out Borders
Aside from traveler's notebooks, find a wide selection of "stationary for travel" here, which are guaranteed to make journeys more pleasurable.

In addition to these dedicated sections, I did some snooping of my own and discovered other items that'll work well for home and office, which are sure to add a distinct Japanese flavour wherever you are.

I came across a corner that'll drive coffee lovers crazy — in a good way, of course. Take your pick from ceramic drippers, espresso makers, filters, plungers, mugs, coffee bean grinders, measuring instruments and more.

This mug screams classic Americana by way of Japan. For some reason, I imagine sipping on coffee from this mug to be more enjoyable than usual. Japanese denim outfit optional.

It's no secret that I love plants, so this section with an assortment of bonsai, as well as other easy-to-grow plants, is a great addition to the retail experience.

I'm a sucker for great packaging. A beautiful box with great fonts will make me want to buy something, even if the product being sold is extremely simple. Case in point, these silicone rubber bands meant to organise a stack of books.

I find that a foldable bag is essential when traveling (especially when your luggage is already bursting at the seams from all the shopping). This particular one features an all-over sushi print that makes it both functional and comical at the same time.

I love pouches and cases from Delfonics and popping by their boutique at Omotesando Hills whenever I'm in Tokyo has sort of become a ritual. I'm thrilled to know that the Tokyu Hands Suntec City Store carries a chic selection.

Not much needs to be said about this tea strainer shaped like a robot, except that it'll make tea time a hell of a lot cooler. The old school robot design is a plus.

For someone who has way too many white sneakers (that would be me), this range of sneaker shampoos and deodorant is an absolute necessity. The shampoo comes in two types too — one for fabric and canvas, and the other for leather.
