Christmas Shopping Expedition

Come join Jax Hamilton and Lesley Whyte on Girls on the Road Again’s end of year Christmas shopping expedition as we are heading to the ultimate kitchen, homeware, gift, wineries and pantry stockists across Greytown, Martinborough and Wellington.

Greytown and Martinborough host some amazing kitchen, homeware, lingerie, handmade sweet and gift shops (even a gorgeous bicycle shop), must say though, our favourite is Mango interiors where Shane and the team will help you with your purchase decisions. This is the expedition to bring your Santa’s shopping list and buy up large – items that you can’t take home, the retailers will ship to you. Over these four days, don’t worry, our mini-bus will be able to fit all your purchases in as we’ve arranged a luggage trailer for all the overflow!

We haven’t forgotten about your Christmas bubbles and wines as we’ll be enjoying a wine tasting session and winery visits – have all your cartons of wine shipped home 🥂

Once back in Wellington, we’re heading to a very gorgeous gift and homeware store – What’s on Willis, Then it’s off for all your pantry items and we couldn’t go past Moore Wilsons who have been operating in Wellington as general merchants since 1918 – here you can stock up and buy a giant parmesan wheel plus lots of other cheeses and all the ingredients for your Christmas day feast.  Don’t forget your pet as across the road is Smack Bang pet store. More gift shops are close by – Citta, Orient Homeware & Gifts plus Shut the Front Door an amazing homeware shop.
