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%!

For snacks like kitkat, tokyo banana, you can buy at the airport. There's plenty of stores in there but I suggest that you shop after the immigration.  Inside the boarding area of Narita Terminal 2, there's Fa-so-la souvenir store. They offer wide variety of Japanese goodies including Royce chocolates.  What's good about shopping at the airport is that you can spend more time on sightseeing hassle free since you do not need to drag your shopping bags with you.  Also, everything in the airport is tax-free. you do not need to reach a certain amount (usually 5,000yen) to get away with the 8% tax.  

As for the cosmetics, prices at Kukomin, Matsumoto Kiyoshi or even Don Quijote are pretty reasonable. :)

I suggest to go to Laox. As I know there are 3 big Laox in Tokyo. 1. Akihabara, 2. Ginza, 3. Shinjuku. Ohh also in Odaiba. You can find everything in this shop as you want to buy many kind of snacks, cosmetics and electro devices etc... This is also duty free shop. So please compare the price w.other shops! Here is the web site. Enjoy your shopping in Tokyo!! http://www.laox.co.jp/en/stores/akihabara/
