Nothing says 'I love you Mum' like a thoughtful gift at the right time of year because there's no one more important in life than Mum right? But sometimes it can be hard finding the perfect present. That's why we've found some of the top local gift stores in New Zealand that will let you find a unique pressie for Mum, no matter what your budget. There's flowers, chocolates and trinkets galore because you know your Mum best. We'd also love to know your favourite gift stores to shop for Mum so if you have a local recommendation you'd like to make, share your love on their Localist listing. Happy shopping!

IKO IKO Gift Shop loved by Emily W.

There’s something for everyone at Iko Iko. Whether it’s kitschy housewares or wonderfully unique gifts you’re after, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The staff are always helpful and friendly, and are expert gift-wrappers. By far the best place to shop if you’re looking for something a little different.

Te Papa Store loved by Martyn P.

Educational gifts. Jewellery gifts. Art gifts. Funny Gifts. Serious gifts. Book gifts. Card gifts. Maori Arts Gifts. If you need a lot (or a little) of quality gifts with a local bent, the Te Papa Store may be the place.

Blackbird Gifts loved by Maria R.

If you're thinking gifts, toys or accessories for the home, Blackbird Gifts is a local favourite. Originally starting off in Christchurch, Blackbird Gifts moved South a couple of years. Everything is quirky, cool and highly desirable. Go see for yourself!

Cakes By Anna loved by Maria R.

For cake see Anna. Selling her handcrafted cakes at markets, via some excellent cafes and online, you can choose from paleo, gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, anything! All dietary needs are covered, and whats more, they taste delicious.

LEFT Maker's Collective loved by Latesha R.

Handmade, crafty, quirky gifts are Left’s speciality, all created with love by local Waikato artists and makers. Browse their shelves to find a really precious gift for Mum - there’s plenty to look at, and you may find yourself leaving with a gift for you as well! Clocks, footstools, earrings … rummage to your heart’s content.

Bennetts of Mangawhai loved by Judy A.

Nothing says I love you like chocolate and there’s nowhere more exciting to buy sweet treats from in New Zealand than choccie from Bennetts. It’s so tasty. I love it and I reckon it’s a great place to buy for Mum.

Buana Satu loved by Sarah M.

Buana Satu is full of treasures from near and far, prefect for gift shopping, especially when the person you are buying for is a wandering soul. For the more musically inclined check out their range of world instruments - with everyone buying their music online these days it can be a little hard to know what to get a muso for that special occasion. Pick up something a little bit left of centre, it’s bound to be a gift to be treasured.

The Garden Party loved by Nureete B.

The Garden Party is the perfect place to pick up gifts for any occasion. So easy to find in Ponsonby as well! I always make sure to stop there before any occasion.
