The Christmas Heirloom Company, Tirau
The Christmas Heirloom Company sells Christmas decorations all year round. They have the most incredible selection of trees and themed decorations - some traditional stuff, and more quirky ideas too. I saw a tree decorated with surfing santas and penguines wearing shades! Lots of glitter, sparkle and all things Christmassy.
What to buy: A lot of people like to collect souvenir tree decorations as they travel, and there is some really special stuff to choose from here. However, when I visited I had wanted to select some 'New Zealand' decorations to send home to family in England, and regrettably the selelction of those types of decoration were quite limited. But plenty of nice stuff to choose from.
What to pay: You can spend a little or a lot here! Seven to ten dollars (NZ) will buy you a tree bauble. Or you may want to give your credit card a proper airing.
