About Us

Welcome to Vivre - our online Gifts & Homewares Store. We invite you to browse our diverse range of top quality hand picked gifts and gift ideas. Select from much-loved traditional favourites through to unique and original items not available anywhere else in New Zealand. Save yourself the hassle of a visit to the mall and buy online. Why not include something special for yourself as well...

In July 2017, we opened our physical store... so when you're visiting our lovely city of Nelson, please come and visit us - 251 Queen Street, Richmond.

Looking around, I found it hard to choose a little something, either for a friend, family member, or myself, that was a bit unique, slightly different and a little out of the ordinary…which is what led me to start my online gift shop. The right gift brings so much pleasure to both the giver and the receiver!

These days everyone always has everything so when I give the gift of a unique, specially selected item from my store to a friend, their delight is overwhelming.

With our busy lives it can often be quite a nuisance to get to the mall and spend half an hour wandering around shops, trying to find inspiration for the right gift among the huge array of massed items. Shopping online is greatly beneficial as you can sit down with a cuppa and at a time convenient for you.

  • Choose a gift for your child’s friends birthday party
  • Choose a little pick me up gift for your friend who needs some extra care
  • Choose gifts for mums, sisters, nieces, etc, etc
  • Buy all this at once, combine postage and save money

I’m Diane, and I get a huge amount of enjoyment from running my own business, including the challenge of sourcing products, deciding on marketing, and having satisfied customers! I live in beautiful, sunny Nelson with my husband and four children and run my store from home. Please subscribe to my newsletter and like my facebook page to keep up to date with new products and specials. 

Feel free to contact me: Phone: 027 444 6387. Email: maisey@internet.co.nz Store: 251 Queen Street, Richmond, Nelson, 7020 – Open Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm and Saturdays 9.30am to 12noon.
