Great friendly service

I loved the cute hand written note that they left in my parcel when I ordered online. Thoughtful touches like that make the difference.

I can always find gifts for any friend or family member at the Garden Party! I love how much effort goes into selling New Zealand and locally made items there so that you know you are supporting kiwis when shopping there. The staff are also friendly and offer an excellent free gift wrapping service which makes it easy if I am in a hurry or leaving for travel soon!

Thank you for your 'love' Augusta. We really enjoy selling our locally produced gifts and you are right it, enables us to support kiwi businesses. I will pass your lovely comments on to the staff - who are very friendly, indeed!

I found this was the best Auckland gift store Ive visited in New Zealand. I travel quite a bit, so to come into a store where I can see the variety of products all locally made from artists across New Zealand was awesome.

The Garden Party is the perfect place to pick up gifts for any occasion. So easy to find in Ponsonby as well! I always make sure to stop there before any occasion.

Love everything from the colourful umbrellas to tea towels which become the feature of your kitchen. Awesome spot for last minute gifts.

Thank you Ms Wilson. We constantly get new and interesting products so please keep coming back for those last minute gifts!

Fantail Luggage Tag - under $20. Perfect NZ Gift to say Bon Voyage.

Very well assorted gift shop. Literally, something for everyone.

Sitting in morning commute and realised that I didn't get a gift for 4:00 kids birthday party. Bummer. iPad. Garden Party. Done! Super smart well priced gifts for every occasion. It's guaranteed that you will not have to go elsewhere. Love this place!

The store is fun and colorful…as is the product. Classy Kiwiana product.
