Gift Guide: Pastel Pressies

Only 8 weeks till Chrimbo! Which also means – if you’re buying online or sending gifts to family and friends in other parts of NZ/the world – only 6 weeks to do all your shopping. To help with the decision-making (and because we love Internet window-shopping), we’re kicking off our series of Gift Guides.

Oh, and by the way: we’ve made sure everything is available online, from NZ-based stores.

Candy colours are definitely cool right now – think the colours of Eskimo lollies… yum!
Here’s our pick of the most tasty pastel-coloured pressies…
