I recommend Haneda Airport. When you buy souvenirs at tourist spots, it is a lot of work to carry around, but if you purchase at the airport, you just have to go home.
Most of Tokyo souvenirs are available at Haneda Airport. In addition to that, there are plenty of other exclusive products available only at Haneda Airport.
It is recommended to check the website first because the area and the number of shops are large.  (https://www.tokyo-airport-bldg.co.jp/shops_and_restaurants/

If you intend to shop and make a lot of purchases to be carried in your luggage to be checked in, it is better to buy snacks in the airport after clearing immigration. This will not add to you check in luggage maximum weight limit.

In addition to not having to carry the snacks around in your luggage, you don't have to pay the consumption tax of 8%!

All the above answers are GREAT!
Especially, if you want to buy in volume, yes, the Airport will be the best choice...

I also happened to find Shinjuku Takashimaya Duty Free Shop where they carried (at that time) various KitKat (once I found Sake Flavor one!) aside from other souvenir snacks. 
I can't say if the prices would be cheaper though. Please make sure to read: https://www.takashimaya-dfs.com/en/guide/index.html 

If you want to get cheap souvenirs, (as previous people mentioned), your choice would be Daiso (equivalent to Dollar Store in the US, but MUCH BETTER Quality!), Don Quixote (you can find whole bunch of array of STAFF!)... However, sometimes you may find some unusual & interesting things at various convenience stores as well...

If you KNOW specific item you want, I agree/recommend to order through Rakuten Global.

If you have a Japanese friend who has Amazon Japan Prime membership, maybe you can order thru them as well.

Good luck and Have Fun Shopping in Japan!
