Into The Wild

Very Kiwi and just a little bit glam, you can create the ultimate festive camping experience using elements from nature

There’s nothing more Kiwi than a campsite Christmas where the living is easy.

Take the stress out of the holiday season by heading to your favourite campsite or glamping location, then sit back and enjoy the incredible views. We set up camp at Wainamu Luxury Tents in West Auckland, and added some festive cheer and foraged foliage to the luxuriously furnished tents.

Keep your decorating fuss-free and simple so you can enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. When the sun goes down, spend your evenings toasting marshmallows around the campfire before nodding off under the stars. Pure bliss.


Just because you’re in the great outdoors, you don’t have to let your decor standards drop. Choose a colour theme that’s in keeping with your surroundings for a little bit of campground style. We took our cue from the rolling green hills and trees, opting for a muted palette of neutrals with hints of soft pink and green.

With the decor settled, it’s time to create what every campsite needs: a fun zone for festive drinks and board games. We decorated ours with a rug from Mitre 10 and an ottoman from The Linen Store. The stool, stemless wine glasses and marble drinks tray are all from Citta.
