|Premium New Zealand Souvenirs|
The 'Koru' or spiral represents new beginnings and growth (see our earlier blog for more on this one). Click here to see many more designs with Koru.
The triple twist is another stylish design, with an equally gorgeous symbolism, reflecting the entwining strands of friendship twisting together for ever. These designs are even more treasured if carved from genuine NZ greenstone (known are jade or pounamu in Maori, but beware of the vast amount of imported greenstone). Our pieces are genuine NZ stone carved here.

Kiwi and other NZ Birds
From a slightly unusual brown furry bird, comes the affection name for New Zealanders - 'Kiwi', plus the name of one of our most famous fruit crops. There are plenty of gifts to buy in New Zealand featuring this slightly eccentric looking flightless bird, and some of New Zealands other gorgeous birds.

All those sheep...and other furry animals
|Merino and Possum Socks|
Possum and Merino socks are fantastic to wear, being much warmer and softer than any other socks.
One of our most consistently popular gifts are Mohair throw blankets. While not made from sheeps' wool (they are from mohair goat fibre) these are soft, luxurious and ultra light to carry.
These are just a few ideas of what to buy in New Zealand, but please make sure you have genuine mementos (NZ made) as there are many imported replica goods available. Many replicas will say 'Designed in NZ" but look out for the words "Made in NZ" to ensure you have the genuine article.
