We Love Local has partnered with The Good Registry to make it easy for the recipient to give to good causes they care about with a Good Registry Gift Card*. So not only are you supporting New Zealand businesses with your We Love Local gift box, but you are helping New Zealand charities — and your recipient has the joy of giving too!
What’s The Good Registry?
The Good Registry’s purpose is to simplify giving and help good causes. They enable anyone from small children to big corporates to give charitable donations.
How can the recipient redeem their Good Registry gift card?
We Love Local will print the Good Gift Card* and add it to your gift box purchase. All the recipient needs to do is choose the charities and donation values to complete their donation at The Good Registry.
* Please note that although these gift cards are a charity donation gift, they are not eligible for a donation tax credit when purchased with us as part of a gift box.

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.
