Please note that this delivery schedule is just a guideline based on our experience of sending thousands of gift boxes across the country. We do not have any control over external factors from couriers causing delays, e.g. during peak times, weather events disrupting NZ Post's network, or while Covid restrictions are in place.

Tips to increase the likelihood of successful delivery:

  • The earlier you order the better. Please make sure you leave a note during checkout mentioning the desired delivery date.
  • You will receive an email with tracking details informing you when a parcel is out for delivery. Give the recipient a heads-up that something is coming their way.
  • Gifts with alcohol have an R18 sticker. NZ Post will not be able to leave a parcel if the recipient is not home.
  • Consider sending the parcel to the recipient's workplace if they're not working from home.

We will try our best to help you get your parcel delivered on time. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
