About Us

Hello, and welcome to Emmas at Oxford.  A unique Book and Gift Store in Oxford, North Canterbury; a short (and picturesque) 45 minute drive from Central Christchurch.

At Emmas you will find a lovely haven away from all the hustle and bustle of the city; where you can enjoy the eclectic range of personally chosen books on offer.  The depth of our range often sees customers commenting "What an incredible selection of books! You never see these in other bookshops."   

On our website you will find a large selection of our most popular items and latest arrivals.  If you can’t find exactly what you are after please just ask - we may just have it or have something similar.  The team all enjoy the fun and challenge of shopping by text/messenger.  Here at Emmas we are here to help. 

And it’s not just books - there are lots of gift items and some clothing options.  With brands such as MerinoMink, Louenhide Handbags, Twigg Jewellery, Scribbler Raincoats and Hello Friday; there really is something for everyone.  

Follow us on Facebook - we are always posting news and new arrivals.

Thank you for stopping by and we look forward to helping you.
