Christmas is Sorted


After spending approximately twelve minutes in our Design Store today I walked out with a brown paper bag full of my new favourite things, a large proportion of my Christmas shopping completed.

Belle and the team have been hard at work carefully developing and selecting items that make for thoughtful, unique and thoroughly enjoyable gift buying – and we get to do it all without stepping foot inside a mall. Win, win!

But what did I choose? I'm glad you asked. Here's the run-down of what my nearest and dearest will be unwrapping on the 25th...

$20 gift for out-of-town friends - our BRAND NEW (and totally postable) little book of Otautahi Christchurch.

There's a Bill Hammond fan in the family so this was a no-brainer - a t-shirt and puzzle.

My fairy god-children are getting our much-loved and multi award-winning kids' art activity book, ART-TASTIC .

After many sun-drenched family days at Taylors Mistake, this will be a treasured gift.

Secret Santa – Art Oracles! Picasso, Pollock, Kahlo and other great artists offer advice on your decision-making. 

Perfect for a cat-loving friend, one of our Eileen Mayo tea towels  

And for $3.90 who can go past a Gallery builder’s pencil?

Not to mention a few sparkly things that fell into the bag for myself!

Next stop — wrapping and getting them under my otherwise neglected Christmas tree.
