A Happy 2014 Fukubukuro Giveaway

by Tania Ginoza on December 31, 2013 · 22 comments

Happy New Year! 2013 has flown by. I feel like I blinked and bam! It was over.


To celebrate the new year, I’d like to extend a huge mahalo to all of you for taking the time to visit MauiShopGirl and host my very own version of fukubukuro.

Fukubukuro is a popular New Year custom for Japanese retailers. The merchants fill grab bags with an assortment of lovely products with a retail price of at least twice the price of the mystery bag.

I’m taking my fukubukuro one step further and giving it away for free for one lucky reader. My bag will be filled with a few of my favorite Maui product picks. It will contain at least one food item, one personal care item and one apparel or accessory piece. The retail value of the bag contents will exceed $50. The only thing I ask of you is you leave a comment below and share a bit of your 2013 with us. It could be an accomplishment, a happy event, a life changing moment…anything you wish to share.

The winner will be randomly drawn and announced on January 10th. January 9th, 2014 is the final day to enter. Very sorry international friends but this giveaway is open to those with a US mailing address only. Mystery bag will be mailed on January 13th via Priority Mail.

If you haven’t commented here before, don’t fret if you don’t see your comment right away. I have my settings set to require approval for new commenters so those nasty spammers don’t get all spammy on us.

If fukubukuro sounds right up your shopping alley, check out Ala Moana shopping center’s fukubukuro event tomorrow.  Participating merchants and hours here.
