At Distinction Gifts, our passion is creating works of art that capture the unique and distinctive beauty of nature found hidden in the grains of New Zealand’s native timbers with beautifully handcrafted gifts, souvenirs and writing instruments.
Woodturning to Art
Designed and handcrafted by Distinction Gifts on the Kauri Coast of Northland, our clocks, bowls, boxes and other small giftware products are crafted using NZ Swamp Kauri with an 'Adzed Effects' finish or a contrasting smooth and adzed finish. All pieces are oiled with a high quality Danish oil or a food safe pure Tung oil for the bowls.
The beauty of nature which has been preserved for 1000s of years underground has been brought back to life in each one of our carefully handcrafted products making them the perfect gift or souvenir.
Pens of Distinction
At Distribution Gifts we are devoted to producing the highest quality writing instruments for the most discriminating of tastes. Using New Zealand's beautiful native timber, all pen barrels are individually turned, finished and assembled with quality pen mechanisms
These pens are not mass produced but made with care, craftsmanship and attention to detail to bring out the fantastic characteristics and memorable rich colour embedded in the grains of the wood.
Each pen is not only a beautifully crafted writing tool but a work of art.
