The name Gonk is a combination of my (Gerhardt) and Kosie’s initials and is symbolic of our personal commitment.  What you see in the store you will also find in our home.

We will never stock anything at GONK that we wouldn’t put in our home.  Our brand is an integral part of us; its what we are all about

In 2015, after we assisted a friend in Clarens, to merchandise her store, we realized it was time to make our dreams a reality and GONK, the shop, was born. The time was right to take the big leap and leave the corporate world behind. After months of searching we found the perfect spot in the heart of Linden. We felt right at home and were welcomed with open arms.
In September 2016 we increased our footprint and opened the doors of our boutique gift store in the lobby of the prestigious  Fairmont Zimbali Hotel, in Ballito, KwaZulu Natal.

Gonk is a must visit for all your gifting needs and for unexpected decor; inspired by our travels and our South African roots.
