I need some more ideas though? I went to Studio Ceramics, on Hurstmere Road, Takapuna and picked up some great tiki wall hangings, a maori inspired mask wall hanging and a paua bowl (all seconds, I can't see whats wrong with them? and absolutely dead cheap) and then hit the $2 shops for other little bits and pieces (note the I love NZ shotglass, tasteful, hehe). Any suggestions? Lovely Ginny, from Swonderful, just suggested the plastic tomato shaped tomato sauce dispensers (only $2 at Pak n Save she tell me!) and they are definitely a goer, and the tiki salad servers at Iko Iko I must go back and investigate them.
I also have collected a bunch of NZ souvenir spoons, I made myself a Georgina Baker rip-off a we while ago (after I bought one a real one though!) and think I might put them to good use and make some pins and necklaces as unfortunately our budget doesn't stretch far enough for some of Georgie's beaut pieces!
I hit the market in the morning too in Takapuna, hoping to pick up some goodies but there wasn't really anything I fancied in terms of gifts. I did get a little side tracked and bought this pin for myself. I thought it was a steal at $10!
Happy Sundays all round!
