Sustainable Gifting this Christmas
It’s been awhile since you heard from us! We have been busy both with the Wao Summit here in Wānaka, and behind the scenes developing the first edition Revology bike…
The holiday season is upon us, and with that, we ask that you take a deep breath, and pause. The Revology ethos is to buy with intention, only what we need and when we do to choose well. Want to be mindful this Christmas? Head in-store to find something timeless, functional, sustainable, ethical. Wondering what makes the products we stock so special? There is a story behind everything we source, so get chatting to our lovely staff in-store and they are bound to share a gem with you…
Jar of RE+Focus tea and a teapot? Reusable safety razor and a RE+Fill lunch box? Local Augustines apricots and get summer drinking with The Herbal’s Guide to Botanical Drinks.
Based outside of Wānaka? Our online store is open and taking orders until 15 December, and as always with free shipping throughout New Zealand. If you want your gifts to arrive by Christmas, make sure you get your order in before the cutoff.

A guide to plastic-free kids gifting
Nurturing creativity and excitement, minus the waste. We have some exciting new products for kids, as well as our tried and tested favourites.
New to the store is the beautiful and design-led is MinMin Copenhagen, architectural blocks with a simple philosophy: to make toys that don’t harm kids and the earth. They are a small family-owned business based in beautiful Copenhagen, Denmark. They’re also super design-led and totally feed into the open-ended play philosophy, inviting kids to play without rules for authentic self-expression.
And who can forget the absolute masterpieces made using KAPLA? Made using 100% natural and untreated French pine wood. From architectural marvels to simple forms, towers to bridges, these simple blocks provide everyone, from age 3-99, the ability to create whatever their imagination can come up with.
And now this one is not just for kids. We love Ugears for its beauty and challenge. Each of the models is a mechanical masterpiece that you get to put together yourself. For anyone who loves to make models, design or just tinker, this will make you want to do more.
