I decided to support a local NZ company this year for my daughter and her partner's Christmas gift. I live in Canada and ordering from 'We Love Local' made it so easy! Their delivery arrived on the date I requested, the communication was great and the products that were in the gift box were great quality and enjoyed very much. I have no hesitation to order again. Thank you for doing such a great job! - 13/01/2023
