Sweet treats

Choc and orange are the perfect combo this Christmas, and Terry's Milk Chocolate Orange is ideal to wrap up or add to the festive table. With two orange-flavoured choc wafers and a chocolate crème centre, it works just as well as a dessert as a snack. Gingerbread is also a holiday classic and the Nice Gingerbread Caravan DIY gives it a novel Kiwi twist. Get the family together, build your caravan and start dreaming of that summer road trip!

Stuff everyone’s stocking

Play all holidays with top toys

The kids will love to unwrap some of this year's hottest toys – and LEGO is a lasting favourite on the top 10 list. This year, tamariki are dreaming of LEGO DreamZzz sets, based on storylines from the popular TV show. The Izzie and Bunchu the Bunny set will be a hit – in this build, main character Izzie helps rescue the kidnapped rabbit. If the littlies are more into secret messages than building with bricks, let them create a bond with Magic Whispers. These cute cats are instant Christmas friends because they'll share messages and jokes that are strictly between kids and kittens.
