Your guide to the perfect Christmas

NZ House & Garden’s festive season spectacular


Celebrate the Christmas spirit with NZ House & Garden’s bumper December issue – the complete guide to creating the perfect Christmas for family and friends this year.

“This special issue is filled with ideas for creating a beautiful Christmas for family and friends this year. Gifts, decorations, wrapping, and table settings – everything we need to make the day a special one,” says Michal McKay, editorial director.

Stylist Sandra Kaminiski shares her plan for a festive Christmas party for readers to draw inspiration from, including ideas for decorations to set the scene and a delicious menu that will impress. The issue also includes a special feature on Christmas gifts with suggestions for the perfect present, as well as beautiful ideas for gift wrapping.

“Christmas is the time of giving and this issue has plenty of inspiration for all. For a great gift idea that will last the whole year why not give a subscription to NZ House & Garden? Readers can simply visit www.mags4gifts.co.nz to place an order,” says Michal.

This issue has plenty of ideas for a Christmas dinner setting that will make the table come alive for family and friends as they share in the festivities, as well as picks for top wines for a seasonal toast. And Peter Gordon suggests a white Christmas dinner menu that can be prepared a day ahead, so that the chef might share in the celebrations too.

The new issue of NZ House & Garden magazine is on sale from Monday 20 November and retails for $8.90. Visit www.nzhouseandgarden.co.nz for inspiration and information 24/7.

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
