NZ Made is a passion of ours and we are excited at being able to showcase so many unique gifts, kiwiana, contemporary arts, ceramics, wood, jewellery, wall art and quirky gifts from NZ’s dynamic and creative community.
Much of what we have to offer is NZ Made but we also have a select range of quality designer imported gifts.
Many of our makers are inspired by the beauty and diversity of our country and this can be reflected in their works.
We believe that everyone should be able to afford objects of beauty and quality so you can find a gift to suit all budgets.
