Our Story

Kia Ora, welcome to The Lyttel Kiwi Gift Shop located in my quaint hometown of Lyttelton.

My name is Huia-Rei Couch from Rapaki bay. I have lots of great memories growing up in the bays and spending school days in Lyttelton. My passion for being creative is part of my life and was influenced by my mother Mary and my Pop.

The Lyttel Kiwi was planned for many years before the opportunity come available to fulfill my dream. In our gorgeous, historic five rooms and large gallery building located at 15 London Street, Lyttelton. The business has definitely exceeded expectations!

The Co-Op girls create a warm and inviting customer experience. We are passionate about The Lyttel Kiwi. I love supporting small, local businesses, “Artists and crafters”. The Lyttel Kiwi offers a great variety of quality and affordable gift ware, both handmade and new. For the local community, tourists & Canterbury visitors.
