Now this is my type of gift shop! It's in such a lovely place, in the beautiful Harbour Street, with an abundance of special products, and lovely staff who provide the friendliest, most helpful service. I couldn't resist treating myself to a couple of keepsakes from a wonderful trip to New Zealand. Great quality products, many of which are eco-friendly at fair prices!

If you are looking for something a little bit special and of good quality then you must stop in here. Right in the heart of the Oamaru Historic Precinct, this is a great place to find that special gift or memento you have been looking for.

If I had to choose the one gift store i liked best in NZ it would be Presence on Harbour. High quality merchandise and a fantastic selection of woolens, handmade NZ made gifts and many other items. I could have stayed lots longer in this store. If you are in the Oamaru area stop in!!

As an anniversary gift for my wife, knowing we'd be passing through Oamaru I arranged with Dawn the owner to pay for a voucher and have it emailed up. We then called in after breakfast on our way back from Dunedin so my wife could shop, She had a wonderful time choosing a gift, as there was literally something for everyone. Dawn, the owner, was on hand for any enquiries, prices were reasonable and the range extensive. End result, happy wife - happy life!!

This a great gift store with higher end gifts. There are hand made art items which are especially nice. There is also a good selection of woolen items as well. This is a larger boutique store that is reasonably priced with quality merchandise. I wish I had more time in here during a tour of the town.

This is a fantastic gift shop. It has lots of different quality gifts, including a full range of Tony Cribb Tin Man gifts and beautiful wool products. The staff were very friendly and held the store open so we could finish shopping. If you are looking for someone special for someone try this shop.

This is a large gift store with a massive variety of items and prices to suit all budgets. The lady who served us was so friendly and helped us with a local map and directions to some areas we had hoped to see. Very happy with the souvenirs we purchased here - unusual gifts we didn't see anywhere else on our NZ trip!
