I went to New Zealand and visited the Hobbiton in 2016. I loved it so much and I brought a Hobbiton hoodie at the shop. I wore it everyday. But a year later, my mom accidentally bleached it. I want to get the same hoodie and I can't travel for a bit since I'm immunocompromised after chemo/stem cell transplant. I also can't seem to find the same sweater anywhere. Is there a link to the online shop? I want to see if they still have it and hopefully I can buy it. Fingers crossed.

Hi Rachel Unfortunately, no. These souvenirs are exclusive to the shops at the attraction. You might have some luck in a FB group to find someone who could pick one up for you? Best of luck. Amber :)

Hi 😊 me and my husband are planning to come and buy some it possible to just come to the gift shop or do we have to buy the movie set ticket in order to buy some souvenirs after the tour?

Hi Mele, it is possible to visit the main souvenir shop where the buses depart from, but not this one. There are some of the same souvenirs but others that are exclusive to the shop on site as part of the tour. There's no way to get to that shop unless on a tour unfortunately. Have a great trip. And do book the tour! It's awesome fun, and if you go that far, then you must do it.

We had a brilliant time at Hobbiton a few years ago and would love to replace the Green Dragon mugs we were given there. How can I get them shipped to the UK?

Amber Greene

Friday 18th of June 2021

HI Annette, unfortunately the only way to buy the pottery mugs is in the Hobbiton shop onsite. They don't ship these as they are exclusive to Hobbiton. Sounds like you might need another trip to NZ! (when the world opens up again) xx Amber

How do I find the Hobbiton Gift Shop online? Travel is limited now (COVID) and Christmas is coming. Would like to be able to shop on line for those great hobbit products. Thank you!

Hi Cindy. Try the WETA shop online - you'll find a bunch there. However, unfortunately, some of the these products are exclusive to Hobbiton movie tour shop and won't be available online. But hopefully you can get there for next year once travel kicks off again! It's so much fun to visit in person.

Hello. On a recent visit to your shop my daughter bought some looking cream she loved. However when we flew back to the states it was taken by security. Could you tell me the brand it was or do you sell it and ship to the states? Thank you! Rebecca


Sunday 12th of January 2020

Hi Rebecca. I'm sorry I can't help you as I don't own the shop. I've written a guide to it to help visitors plan their souvenir shopping. Please try emailing the Shire Store via this link. Good luck!
