Collection: About Us

Our Anything but Ordinary Story

This journey began many years ago, with the help of my family. Together we created a boutique French styled wedding and event venue in the Bay of Plenty.  There I found my passion styling and creating atmospheres for boutique events.

After moving to Wellington, I created Anything but Ordinary, an on-line gift store. We soon out grew our small space, and when a perfect spot opened up next to Janus Bakkerij (Lower Hutt) in 2021 we decide to open a retail store.

We offer a range of gorgeous unique home and giftware which can be purchased on-line or in our physical store, at 700 High Street, Boulcott, Lower Hutt.

Our products are sumptuously gift wrapped and promptly couriered all throughout New Zealand.


Services Anything but Ordinary Offer:

On-line shopping

Purchased products are generally couriered over night, rural and South Island destinations are usually 2 days. Freight charges: urban $9.50, rural $14. Orders over $150 are shipped free (with the exception of over sized pieces).


In-store shopping

We strive to offer different homeware and gifts. Often our unique pieces don't make it to our website, so please follow us on instagram or Facebook to see what's new. Our physical store is behind Janus Bakkerij (the best Bakkerij in Lower Hutt), unit 2 700 High Street.


Interior Styling Service

With my love for all things interiors, it is only natural that we offer an interior design service to make furnishing your space easy, fun and above all functional!


Special pieces of furniture

Are you looking for a unique piece of furniture? We can help, and give you competitive pricing too. We are stockist of French Country, Rembrandt Fine Arts, Hawthorne, Furniture Road and CC Interiors (just to name a few!).
