Kate Mullins AvatarKate Mullins

Our organisation has employees dotted all around NZ and not always in urban jungles - so to be able to arrange a phenomenal 'local' gift of goodies to be delivered to them in these regions is nothing short of FANTASTIC! Dealing directly with the crew from 'We Love Local' was super impressive too - the communication and helpfulness organising our deliveries made me so proud to support a Kiwi owned service. Many, many thanks to the team - will definitely keep your details on speed-dial for future events. - 02/11/2021

We bought a craft gin gift box online during the lockdown . The order was processed and picked up by the courier on the same day but it was sitting with NZ post till the levels dropped down as the delivery address was a business address. Something to keep in mind going forward. But the wait was worth while and we had a great after sales support from We Love Local team . The packaging and presentation was fantastic we loved the flavor. Would highly recommend anytime . Thanks guys !! - 29/10/2021
