Handmade Christmas Gift Guide

Handmade Christmas Gift Guide

With Christmas a few weeks away it’s time to share my favourite handmade gifts with you. I’m hoping you find some inspiration and enjoy these beautiful products made by small handmade businesses in New Zealand.

The Papery Studio - Weekly Planner

Something that I simply cannot live without is my weekly planner. I know its a bit old school having a physical diary, but it works so well for me. There's something about writing things down that helps me. This is the one I bought this year from The Papery Studio and there are lots of other gorgeous designs to choose from. You can shop here.

Dasato Woodwokring - Rimu Spatulas

Based in Wellington, self-proclaimed Chief Sawdust Maker David makes beautiful products from reclaimed wood. I recently purchased some of these stunning spatulas which make a unique gift for anyone who loves to cook. They are made from reclaimed Rimu that was destined for landfill. Purchase at Dasato’s Felt store here.

Illyrian Gems - Christmas Earrings with Style

Recently launched, Illyrian Gems' Christmas earring collection is so elegant yet fun at the same time. My favourite are the Christmas trees pictured below but there are lots of other designs to choose from. Shop the collection here.

Global Soap - Gift Boxes 

There are so many amazing smelling soaps made by Global Soap. If it’s too tricky to choose just one then you can try out one of their gift boxes filled with all the varieties. You can find them here.

Ceramics by Fiona

I’m in love with these cute handmade ceramic mugs that I bought recently. They come in a range of colours and are so sweet yet practical. I paired them with a Hot Milk Stirrer and a Revel in Nosh loaded chocolate for the perfect choc inspired treat. Find the mugs here and watch out for them coming to Big Little Gift Box in the new year.

Christmas Decorations

Who doesn’t love a cute Christmas decoration for yourself or a loved one. My favourite this year is Store 17 in Christchurch who have some gorgeous handcrafted felt designs. You can purchase these cute Store 17 felt baubles at Big Little Gift Box here.

Handmade Candles

I was asked recently if these candles were chocolate. They smell good enough to eat, that’s for sure. You can shop the full range of creative candles at EM & ME Candles based in Nelson. Shop these Christmas designs at Big Little Gift Box here.

Happy Christmas Shopping!
