We get it—buying gifts is tough. Do they need it? Will they like it? What’s their favourite colour? That’s why we’ve curated a selection of potential presents to fit various budgets and tastes. Shop the selection below.

Classic Styles

Classic pieces are a staple in any carrying wardrobe—you won’t go wrong with one of our iconic shapes in signature New Zealand deer nappa. Give a gift guaranteed to endure years to come.

The Event Edit

Our selection of party bags are the perfect gift for the person with a calendar full of events. With a minimal aesthetic sure to suit every outfit, and a practical design guaranteed to keep precious items safe, they’re the keys to a carefree evening.

Something a Little Smaller

Our selection of Small Leather Goods are a great way to give someone something equally practical and stylish.
