Your Guide to Gifting for the whole family
We all that know feeling.. It's the week of Mum's birthday and you suddenly realise you've left it until the last minute (AGAIN) and need to get her a present ASAP! Don’t end up with another ‘that’ll do’ gift and make sure you get Mum (or whoever you are shopping for) a gift that they’ll be talking about for months.
We get asked by our customers every day for gift ideas and recommendations, so we thought we’d make things easy and put together a list of our favourite gifts, depending on who you are shopping for!
Gifts For Mum
Mum’s love a thoughtful gift! You'll probably remember growing up Mum’s favourite gifts were always the handmade ones. A gift box filled with beauty pampering products, sweet goodies, and even a bottle of bubbles makes for a thoughtful and beautiful gift, that mum will be sure to love and doesn’t require you to put your DIY skills to use.
It’s one of our best selling gift boxes for a reason! Our Spoil Her Gift Box is a beautiful and feminine gift that mum will love to show off. Featuring a luxury Côte Noire Soy Blend French Candle, a delicious House of Chocolate Raspberry, Hazelnut and Cacao White Chocolate Bar and a MOR Hand Cream, this gift box is ideal for Mother’s Day, or any occasion that Mum deserves to be celebrated!
You can’t go wrong with a bottle of Veuve du Vernay Ice Rosé, paired with a Molly Woppy Heart Cookie! This gift box is pretty and pink and will be adored by mum. Add a heartfelt note to your gift box to make her feel really special.
Gifts For Dad
Dad is notoriously the HARDEST person to shop for. Every year you find yourself choosing between some socks, or box of beer. Why not get him a gift he's never had before, and one that he will love! Surprise him with a Celebration Box delivered straight to his door and make his day.
Have a Dad who loves his sports? Our Craft Beer Box has all the beverages and snacks Dad will need for game day viewing from the couch! The Emerson’s Craft Beers, Bacon Bites and Chocolate will be gone before you know it.
A present that can be enjoyed in more ways than one! Gift Dad our Chocolate Whisky Lovers, and watch him delightfully open the box to find whisky & bourbon mini liquors, a delicious House of Chocolates Pistachio and Boysenberry Dark Chocolate Bar, along with the star of the show, the Whiskey Lovers playing cards that he can enjoy with friends.
Dad’s deserve a little pampering too! Our Treats For Him Gift Box includes a Valor Hemp + Peppermint Activated Skin-Buffering Scrub Body Soap, all the way from Byron Bay, as well as a cotton face cloth, to get him started with some grooming basics. And after his pamper sesh he can enjoy some Kraken Rum and some yummy chocolate treats from Whittaker’s and Lindt.
Gifts For Your Partner
It might be your anniversary, a special date night, or maybe you’ve got yourself in the dog box and you’re needing a gift to get yourself out. Whether you’re shopping for your girlfriend, wife, boyfriend or husband, we have gifts that are perfect to surprise your special someone with.
The Cutie Pie Gift Basket often features in our top 5 best selling gift boxes, and for good reason! Perfect for chocolate lovers, and when you’re feeling a bit romantic, this gift box is filled with the best Lindt and Whittaker’s chocolates. The thing our customers love about this gift is that it includes high quality chocolate brands that they love, whilst being very cost efficient! Perfect if you’re needing to get a small gift to show your appreciation, but aren’t wanting to break the bank.
You could be celebrating an anniversary, or maybe purchasing a house and you need a gift to celebrate with your loved one. Our Celebrate With Pinot Gris gift box is perfect for any occasion that deserves to be celebrated. And if Pinot Gris isn’t your thing, then not to worry – we also have this box available with Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir. The goodies featured in this gift box are some of our favourite NZ local businesses, such as Molly Woppy, Loaf, Cookie Time & Kapiti Candy.
Our Luxury Gift box is ideal for those who love a little luxury in life. We’d recommend this as a beautiful and high class gift for your partner, or wife. Fresh locally grown blooms, with your choice of white, bright, or our customer favourite ‘florists choice’. This gift box even comes with a vase to put your flowers in on arrival – how handy!
Gifts For Kids
Who loves gifts more than anyone else? We’d have to give this one to children! There’s nothing cuter than watching them open their special Celebration Box gift, followed by high pitched “oooh-ing!!” and “Ahhhh-ing!!”. A gift filled with sweet treats and toys – what could be more perfect!?
Our first recommendation has to be our Munchkin Gift Box. This box comes with the choice of, a girl or boys toy, a donut and some yummy candy, all inside our mini sized box. A treat the kids will be sure to enjoy, but not too large that they’ll be on a sugar-high for days 😉
This ones for the girls! Our Girls Will Be Girls Gift Box is recommended for girls aged 3-7 years old. Featuring Zuru Oosh Putty, a Cake Pop Cutie and candy such as a Chupa Chups Melody Pop, your little girl will love receiving for her next birthday present.
You probably guessed what was coming - the Boys Will Be Boys Gift Box! Of course we had to do the boy version of one of our most popular kids gift boxes. We’ve swapped out the girls toys for a Hot Wheels Car and least the ever popular Zuru Oosh Putty. Your little boy will love this. Once again we recommend this for kids aged 3-7 years old.
The Kids Fun Box is a goodie box bursting with fun! With a Crayola colouring-in book and silly scents crayons, your kids will be entertained for hours. This box also features the wildy popular, Jellycat bunny, that your kids will adore. The bonus with this gift box is that it qualifies for Free Overnight Delivery nationwide.
Gifts For Grandparents
Nana and grandad are known for being the best gift-givers, but when it’s time to get them a gift, it’s hard to know where to start! We’ve created a number of Gifts with Nana and Grandad in mind, making gift giving easier than ever.
Inside this beautiful gift basket, you’ll find a fresh posy bouquet of your choice, a V&A Fork & Trowel set, and locally grown fresh fruit that your grandparents will be sure to love! Due to the fragility of this product, it can only be sent on our Auckland Same Day Courier – however, don’t worry! We have plenty more gifts for grandparents that can be sent nationwide.
Next up is our Grandparents Treat Gift Box. Filled with all their favourite treats that you’ll often see them enjoying when you pop in for a visit. Featuring delicious NZ homemade Fudge, and Loaf Moist Lemon Loaf, the perfect treats to enjoy with some Bell Tea. This box will be sure to put a smile on your grandparents faces!
Orchids are known to be a long lasting flower, which means they provide months of enjoyment as they continue to bloom. Gift one of our elegant Cololoured Phalaenopsis Orchids to Nana and Grandad and watch them nuture and enjoy the beautiful florals in their home. Add a note to your order and we’ll attach a hand written card to the orchid.
