How it works
1 We find and put together gift boxes filled with locally made Wellington or Kapiti Goodies (more to come)
2 You choose which regional box you want to send as a gift (treating yourself is perfectly acceptable too!)
3 We deliver locally with our electric car but also ship to anywhere in New Zealand (not overseas just yet)
Support Wellington’s artisan producers
There is so much to love about Wellington, its people and products! New Zealand’s coolest little capital is diverse, has an innovative spirit and is home to some of the best small businesses around. Supporting our local community is important to us and we want to help you do it too.
Together, let’s support local businesses and strengthen our Kiwi community. By buying one of our Wellington gift boxes from We Love Local you are not only helping boost our local economy, but you are also supporting 25+ Kiwi entrepreneurs and making more sustainable consumption choices.
Frequently asked questions
Can you send We Love Local Boxes overseas?
Sadly no, we only deliver wide throughout New Zealand at this stage.
Can I swap out content in my box?
If you don’t want certain types of products or goods in your box – let us know and we can swap them out. Just get in touch with us via email.
Can I create my own custom box?
We want to take the effort of curating boxes off your hands! Our Wellington gift boxes are filled with goods that are carefully chosen to complement one another.
I want to sell one of my locally made goods in your boxes.
We are always on the lookout for new and amazing Wellington made products. Get in touch.
How did we choose the products in the boxes?
The gift boxes are filled with Wellington made products that we use and love.
Can you add personal notes to the gift boxes?
You absolutely can! Just let us know what you would like to say and we will include a handwritten note to the gift box.
How long will it take for my box to be shipped?
We try to get boxes out ASAP but can guarantee it will be sent within 2 business days. If you need the box to arrive by a certain time, get in touch with us via email.
How long will the delivery take?
Delivery will be around 2-3 business days for residential or commercial addresses, and 4-5 business days for rural addresses. Expected delivery times are estimates. If the box absolutely needs to arrive at a certain time, please let us know.
What’s the difference to a gift basket?
Gift baskets and hampers have traditionally been put together with products from supermarkets. Our products are hand-selected from small companies that sell in small batches and often attend farmers markets. We also replaced the traditional gift basket look with a beautiful wooden box.
How much does shipping cost?
Delivery will be between $10-20 depending on your address. We also offer express delivery if you are in a hurry.
