We love to make home made gifts that are full of aroha, look gorgeous, and will be loved by the recipient. So we've put together a collection of gift ideas that are fun to make, and even more fun to receive.
We know Christmas can be a tricky and expensive time for all, so making a few gifts with our kids is a fun activity that brings us all together, and helps to show them the true meaning of giving.
This one is for the budding Masterchef. Someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen. Infusing honey is a great way to add different flavours to a dish.
There's nothing better than home made cookies, except homemade cookies made by someone else! These make a great gift to give to family when you pop in for a visit, they go great with a cuppa and long chats.
These make a great stocking filler for young and old. Or place it on the table for people to snack on while waiting for Christmas lunch, it also goes great crumbled over ice cream for a deliciously simple dessert.
Our Honey Toasted Muesli is a great gift if you're heading off camping, or staying with relatives, it's a super quick and healthy way to start the day, so you can all head out the door faster to make the most of your Christmas Holiday. We love to make a big batch of this and divide it up in to large glass jars and wrap the lid with pretty fabric and ribbon.
Plants and Flowers
There's always a keen gardener or two in the family, so why not make the most of what you have and propogate some of your favourite herbs or plants. We've got all the tips you need to create some living gifts.
Or a great gift that keeps on giving are our Flower Bombs - they can be thrown anywhere and will sprout up gorgeous blooms. They're great to fill in a bare spot in the garden, or you can put them in a little pot to brighten up their doorstep or windowsill.
Pamper Your Loved Ones
Know someone who would love some peace and quiet (hello busy mamas) you could make one of our DIY Masks. Mānuka honey is great for your skin and it smells delicious. Package it up in a cute jar and offer to watch their kids for a couple of hours so they can really make the most of your gift.
If DIY isn't your thing - we've got you covered with an array of gift packs from our Award winning Sauces or why not try our Hana Botanicals range of NZ Native Skincare, or grab a jar of our favourite Mānuka Honey.
