So the kids and wife has accumulated tens of Air NZ airpoints here and there.

 

Not enough to purchase any gifts nor flights.

 

Not planning to fly anywhere either.

 

What do people do with such dollars that are expiring?

Set up a shairpoints account so you can pool them all together and buy something? Or share them with somebody else using shairpoints?

forgot to mention I have shairpoint account ... but it spends the oldest points first. and because I have points that never expire, there are a gazillion old points that i need to use before touching theirs. maybe i set up a shairpoint without my account and buy something you reckon?

Yes if you have an Air NZ Airpoints credit card. You can no longer do this with OneSmart (like you could previously) due to so many people exploiting it.

Like cash, but then again, nothing like cash, as cash doesn’t expire. If getting gift cards, I would suggest getting ones that have a long expiry date, as a lot of gift cards never get used before they expire, so it is like giving companies free money.
