There’s just one thing that I really don’t like about Daiso – you can’t give someone a gift without them knowing exactly how much you spent. It really doesn’t matter how good, functional, or well made the item is, once people realise it’s from Daiso, their perception of quality (of the item and maybe even of the giver) seems to diminish. That “Daiso Japan” label is on every one of their items, and for gift giving purposes, it might as well say “Cheapo”. Fortunately, there are other places where you can get household goods, personal care items, stationary, Japanese snacks, and other knick-knacks at the bargain price of $2. And nobody has to know how much you spent.
