Iko Iko Auckland reviewed by Sarah M.

When I’m searching for the perfect gift Iko Iko is the first place I head to. You can find something here for just about anyone, including that annoying cousin of yours that’s so ridiculously hard to buy for. They even cater for the tiny ones and have a great selection of eco friendly toys for tikes. Let them know it's a gift and they will happily wrap that inflatable palm tree for you. Make sure you check out their awesome and slightly oddball cards. Definitely one of the more quirky gift stores around. One day I will buy myself one of the vintage robots, I’m determined to!

Rapt - Gotta Have Gifts reviewed by Jodie L.

I have been shopping at Rapt for so long, the staff are so lovely and friendly and helpful and they have the most awesome range of products. I really love all the products and the window displays they have are so pretty and in-store the experience is fantastic. Always get greeted and welcomed... In June I got this amazing bulldozer / digger for my lil monkey's birthday and they wrapped it up and made it look so pretty and also they wrapped it in lots of bubble wrap first and didn't even charge me! Service like this is hard to find - check them out!

Monsterthreads reviewed by Emily S.

Amazing clothes, homewares and jewellery! This store has some amzing quirky and fun stuff I can barely go in there with out spending some money and taking home something lovely, I am so glad that everything is reasonably priced! This is a great store for gifts and picking up little knick knacks for those you love.

Junk & Disorderly reviewed by Ella I.

Perfect for that hard to buy for loved one, Junk and Disorderly is definitely more hit than miss (unusual for a "junk" store! Full to the brim with fabulous trinkets and oddments, it's where I am going shopping for my quirky and artistic friends who don't care about price tags. I hope people go shopping for me here, too ;)
