Christmas shopping in Wellington is always a pleasure. From traditional gift stores, through to speciality and seasonally themed stores, it’s a shopping experience not to be missed!

It’s Time for Christmas Shopping in Wellington 

If you’re feeling Christmasy, hop into the pop-up shop on Willis Street to enjoy some Christmas Wonderland spirit. Or pay a visit to Canfields, which has been around for over two decades specialising in memorable gifts.

Take a trip out to the Queensgate Christmas Store and while you’re there, you can visit the big box stores such as EB Games and The Warehouse, but also the smaller stores, but still popular, such as Acquisitions.

But what if you haven’t got the time to visit the stores this year? Why not hire a personal shopper to do all the work for you, if you prefer the hands-on touch. Check out our article It’s Time to Go Shopping in Wellington’s CBD for more neat ideas about where to shop in the Capital.

But wait, there’s more …

Best Christmas Eateries in Wellington

You can’t go shopping on an empty stomach. Or a body empty of caffeine. You could enjoy a craft beer at one of the many bars and breweries, or a great drink and bite to eat at some of the Capital’s finest after dark, such as Puffin or Hiakai.

But wait, because we can make things even easier. You stay in your beautifully furnished apartment, then order in a platter from a local deli or dinner from a local restaurant. Then take out your device and do all of your Christmas shopping online!

Of course, there is more to Christmas than shopping and eating, or so we’ve heard… The Wellington Council has organised four unique Christmas events, there’s plenty of small independent markets, church services and carol singing opportunities too.

As for what the top Christmas gifts are this year, we’ve heard on the grape vine that a good vino or two doesn’t go amiss, gift boxes are always appreciated, and people love to get gift vouchers to choose their own gifts. That sounds like a great solution to us!

Remember that we have available plenty of fully furnished apartments and homes you can enjoy the festive season in too – get in touch and let’s arrange a time for a chat.
