A New Year is approaching, so wish all your friends the best with New Year nengajo. These postcards are a Japanese tradition, and Nanoblocks has added its own twist to them.

Normally nengajo are greeting cards in the vein of Western Christmas cards, but Nanoblocks has fashioned a set of nengajos out of LEGO-style blocks that can be built up into figurines of a lion dance mask (shishimai) or a ‘kadomatsu,' a traditional New Year's decoration made of pine and bamboo and placed at the entrance of homes during the holidays.

These New Year nengajo are great gifts to mark the upcoming celebrations with and a great way to send out your well wishes to family and friends around the world with a little twist of personality. Get creative this New Year and send out these fun and innovative nengajo instead of the usual bottles of wine or champagne.
