3. The Workaholic
Sounds familiar? We all have one friend that pops into our heads the moment we hear “workaholic”, don’t we?

Crafting Wooden Coasters workshop
Take your loved ones along to this wood-crafting workshop, as they’ll learn the traditional art of woodworking and Ikigai. According to Savvy Tokyo, “iki” (生き) translates to “life,” and “gai” (甲斐) refers to value or worth. Thus, Ikigai means “finding joy through life with purpose”. At the end of the workshop, you’ll get to bring home your very own modern wooden coasters and a coaster stand! Who knows, they might find their Ikigai!
*Minimum of 5 pax required - but don’t worry, with the new 8 pax limitation (scheduled for 28 Dec), you can even make this a double-date affair! Perfect gift for newly married couples? We think so too!
