Another unique item from Japan is these little promotional gifts that sometimes come with bottled drinks sold at supermarkets or convenience stores. I like to collect these little gifts. So far, I have seen key chains, mini towels, little vegetable farming kits, mint tablets, free coupons of MacDonald hamburger or drink etc..
The free gifts in the picture are the little vegetable farming kits. When I found these at a supermarket, I couldn't resist to buy 3. Now, I'm farming one of these, parsley, at work.
It includes a package of seeds and soil. You can use the bottle cap as a container. There are 5 different kinds of seeds along with parsley, which are butter lettuce, sweet basil, negi, trefoil and leaf lettuce.
Don't you think it's pretty cool for free items? I sometimes buy a bottled drink just to get its free gift. Please check it out when you ever get a chance!
