Ho ho ho! A free snap and healthy snack with Santa

December 5, 2013

Ho ho ho! A free snap and healthy snack with Santa

Now that he’s made his way to our Pacific paradise, it only seems right that Santa’s ditched the winter woollies and donned the jandals and board shorts to celebrate Christmas Kiwi style.

But just because he’s revelling in our summer, it doesn’t mean he’s not working.

Thanks to healthy children’s snack company Kiwigarden, rather than taking up his usual seat in a shopping mall, Santa’s enjoying the sound of cicadas and shade of Pohutakawa blossoms. Where? In beautiful, lush garden grottos at Kings Plant Barn stores in Remuera and Forrest Hill for one weekend only.

Mums and dads can take their little ones to divulge their Christmas wish list, enjoy a healthy Kiwigarden snack and have a free snap taken with Mr Claus which will be emailed to them in time for the big day.

He’s at Kings Plant Barn Remuera from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 14 December and in Forrest Hill, North Shore from 11am to 2pm on Sunday 15 December.
