    I'm on my eighth kiwi Christmas now (and it still feels odd being hot) and apart from my first Christmas and this year I have found NZ varieties of whatever my family are interested in. My sister is a movie buff so she gets the latest kiwi DVDs (she loved the Aramoana movie and Black Sheep), my dad likes nature so anything with a kiwi or other native bird goes down well. My old school friend gets chocolate and I send NZ toys for her kids (BUzzy Bee and the Wot Wots are age appropriate).

    This year is slightly different in that I have bought them each a RWC ticket for when they visit next year so have sent them the usual calendar and somehting else that's small.

    I think next year I will shop early and send them home in October with their Christmas presents!
