Such a beautiful gift and customer service was incredible. Valerie went above and beyond to make sure the gift was received on time and to keep it as a surprise when I changed the delivery address. I was so impressed and would highly recommend. Thank you once again Valerie! - 28/07/2021

Great gift ideas. I got one of the craft beer gift baskets sent to my dad and it turned up on his birthday as I hoped and he was super happy with this and couldn't wait to try the different flavours. I would highly recommend We Love Local to support our suppliers in NZ. Thank you again for the great service, will be back for future birthdays 😀 - 27/07/2021

I purchased 2 chocolate gift boxes for friends. Valerie from the We Love Local Team personally messages me to ask if I wanted to include a message for the gift boxes and offered to provide a complimentary gift card. When I didn't respond immediately, she sent me a text message to follow up (even though I am living overseas). What great service! My friends received their gift boxes on the date of delivery and love the chocolates. Thank you! - 30/06/2021

Hi I purchased 3 local Wellington gift boxes for 2 people in Wellington and 1 in Christchurch. They were all overwhelmed by the contents. I was very impressed with the wonderful friendly service provided and speedy delivery. The texts and emails keeping me up top date on delivery etc were appreciated. Thank you for a great product and service. :Paul - 10/06/2021

Absolutely top quality service & products. Highly recommend. I ordered from Australia via website which was easy to use & Valerie just amazing following up to ensure everything was perfect for my Mum’s gift. - 02/06/2021 

Bernadette King AvatarBernadette King

Absolutely love 'I Love Local'. I had a little problem while ordering (my fault not the website) and I got a super quick call-back from a really helpful person who finalised my very late order. I happened to be talking to my friend on the phone the next day when her gift box arrived (on time as promised) and it looked exactly as represented in the photos. She was so pleased and happy with it. I would certainly recommend I Love Local and I won't be using anyone else in the Wellington region from now on. - 28/05/2021
