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.

Please note that this delivery schedule is just a guideline based on our experience of sending thousands of gift boxes across the country.

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.

Ordered from UK for my son. Choice of gifts was brilliant. Communication was excellent. My son was away so asked for delivery to be delayed. Valerie arranged for that and messaged me when delivery was made. - 29/06/2022
I got a Health pack for my niece for when she came home after a mastectomy. Her response was "I have just received a lovely and very welcome gift box in the post. Thank you.I was feeling a bit flat but this has really picked me up and I love the fact the products are all local and artisan". I will definitely get them again! - 29/06/2022
Great to deal with, I ordered two deliveries. One online and the other they took my special order over the phone. Did take a tiny bit long for the local delivery (online) to take place (ordered on Monday and delivered on Wednesday I think); I would have expected it to be delivered next day. But great range of products and I will definitely be using them again! Thanks - 27/06/2022
