    The Christmas Barn

As something special we are opening for Christmas in June!  

When its cold outside, what better way to spend a little time relaxing in a warm Christmas environment enjoying a glass of mulled wine whilst you browse.  It is also a great opportunity to get organised and put things on lay-buy for December!


— We open Weekends October until Christmas 10am till 4pm —

The Christmas Barn is unique. We've taken a barn in a rural setting and transformed it into a magical treasure trove full of gifts and stunning decorations with over a dozen individually themed trees.

New products are sourced every year, different colours introduced and a variety of themes created each year, so there is always something interesting for everyone. We spend months sourcing beautiful, quality and unique decorations for your home. No matter what your style we will have something that catches your eye, I promise!

We are located just ten minutes west of Palmerston North and open weekends from October till December. Of course if you would like to visit during the year please contact us, we would love to see you. So if you are in the Manawatu or planning a visit, make sure that The Christmas Barn is on your list of destinations over the festive period. This truly is the home of all things Christmas!

  • This beautiful Christmas shop
    will become a family tradition in our house

    It is a magical mix of tradition and whimsy and the kids loved choosing their annual Xmas decoration. Each tree is themed differently and you could spend hours examining the stunning selection of ornaments, along with everything else Christmas. Thanks Mel for keeping the Christmas spirit alive!

  • By far and away the best
    Christmas shop I’ve ever been to.

    Not just because of the sheer number of decorations, but also the quality and variety. It’s so hard to choose what to buy! It’s like walking into a magical Christmas wonderland, it’s so beautiful. And reasonably priced. And for the kids the bonus of course is seeing Santa.

  • WOW!!
    From the moment I arrived I was entranced, it was beautiful.

    A lovely walkway framed with roses and a tempting glimpse of what was awaiting inside. Very welcoming staff chatting with and enjoying their customers company. And what an array of decorations awaiting purchase, all very realistically priced. Thankyou Christmas Barn, thoroughly recommended!

  • This is a beautiful
    Christmas Barn.

    Mel has had a Christmas Shop in Bay View and Taradale for many years. Her stock range is amazing. I spent two hours there last night and saw something different each time I walked around. Highly recommend a visit. It's in a beautiful setting as well.

  • I was amazed by the display,
    and all the lovely Christmas things for sale,

    at very reasonable prices as well! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anybody to go there for a look - and buy. Takes quite a while to see everything. There is so much.
