Kia ora koutou

It's a short one this month - we're profiling some of our fabulous sponsors from throughout this year in order to help you with your last minute Christmas shopping.

Remember, NZ Post's cut-off dates for sending within NZ are 16 December for regular post, 20 December for courier. Don't delay, shop today!

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support in this rollercoaster of a year. We are very much looking forward to being able to return to a sense of normality with face-to-face events, like the Frances Clarke Memorial Awards, next year so hold tight on a plan for that one.

Best wishes from us all to you all for a safe, healthy & joyous festive season.

Selena and the WDSA Committee
Bikes, trikes, wagons - if it's got wheels, chances are Wellington's family-run business, Wishbone Design Studio, probably creates it. Made for active families, Wishbone's ethos is simple things that work well. Their award-winning learn-to-ride system is legendary in our circles.
No doubt we all know someone who needs a little TLC right now. Check out the gorgeous handcrafted personal care products from local small business Mia Belle. Mia Belle strives to provide quality beauty products that are better for you, your family and the planet.
Stuck for inspiration? Have a wander through Boxylox's online store from the comfort of your favourite chair. From giftboxes to chocolate to Downlights, there's a huge selection of gifts to suit the season. Plus $5 from every 'Down syndrome awareness' tee is donated to the DS community association of your choice!
Love coffee? You're in the right place. L'affare has you covered - from beans and machines to much, much more, you'll find everything you need for the coffee-loving lad or lass in your life online or instore at 27 College Street, opposite Moore Wilson's.
Experiences make for exceptional presents (see what I did there?!). Staglands Wildlife Reserve is nestled in Akatarawa Valley, a perfect day trip destination less than an hours' drive from Wellington City. Prices start from $12 for a day's admission or from $35 for an annual pass.
One of Wellington's all-time favourite eateries, Chow is located on Tory Street just off Courtenay Place.

You'll find gifts for all ages and stages at Iko Iko. An eclectic array of fun goodies and a riot of colour assaults the senses as you step through the doors of this gorgeous little gift store in the heart of Cuba St. You can also shop online if you're pushed for time.
Say it with flowers, Bloomin Beautiful flowers. Mother and daughter flower farmers, Deb and Mel, are passionate about growing seasonal fresh cut stems. View their stunning portfolio online or get in touch if you want to visit their farm, tucked away in hills of Whitemans Valley, Upper Hutt.
FURMOO is the world's biggest, little boutique bag store based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Offering a unique selection of handbags, wallets and accessories, FURMOO products are designed in New Zealand using high quality cowhide and sheepskin.
