Shopping for Gifts in Hokitika

Published on July 1, 2018 by Hokitika

Hokitika is full of talented artists. There are so many options when it comes to gift buying here that you will find it hard to choose, you may end up wanting to take home one of everything!

We have jade/pounamu carvers, painters, photographers, goldsmiths, glassblowers, potters, weavers, sculptors, knitters to name but a few. All of these skilled artists and craftspeople have their work available to buy in Hokitika.

You can find small inexpensive gifts for family and friends, special pieces for yourself and more expensive, exquisite works too. There is definitely something for every taste and budget here.

Here are a few examples of what is on offer:

One of my favourite shops in Hokitika is William Steyn's Stone Painting gallery.

This guy is incredible! The work is so intricate and detailed. He sells his painted stones from his shop beside Mountain Jade gallery on Weld Street. You can find little pieces from a few dollars up to his bigger works that have obviously taken hours to create. He’s a really interesting guy and is always happy to chat to his customers.

The Hokitika Craft Gallery

Hokitika Craft Gallery

The gallery is run as a cooperative by local artists in Hokitika. Here you can buy locally made pottery, textile craft/art, paintings, jade/pounamu carvings, woodwork items and jewellery.
