Vegan Gift Baskets NZ delivery info

We guarantee same-day dispatch on business days (Monday to Friday) for orders placed by 2pm. All parcels can be sent on an overnight delivery service across New Zealand which is available to select during checkout. You will also be able to specify a delivery date range if you want the courier to deliver the parcel later. See details for cut-off dates and shipping timeframes.

Gift delivery info

All gifts ordered from our website are delivered by NZ Post or Pace Couriers (for Wellington express shipping). Please see guidelines below for delivery timeframes.

The following applies to all of New Zealand:

  • Order before 2PM for same-day processing and delivery within 1-2 business days after dispatch (mostly overnight but not guaranteed by NZ Post)
  • Rural deliveries may take another day or two, i.e. 2-3 business days total

Some examples:

  • If you need a gift delivered to Auckland or Christchurch for Wednesday it needs to be ordered Tuesday 2PM at the latest for a chance to arrive the next day.
  • Deliveries for Saturday must be ordered by Friday 2PM at the latest and choose the Saturday shipping option during checkout.
  • Any gift deliveries requested for Monday must also be ordered by Friday 2PM to arrive just after the weekend.

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 or weather events disrupting NZ Post's courier network.

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 and must be signed for by a person over 18.
  • 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.

Sustainable gifting

We always strive to further reduce our impact on the environment:

  • By only stocking NZ-made products, we keep the distance goods travel from suppliers to us and you at a minimum resulting in a reduced carbon footprint of your gift-giving.
  • Customers can further reduce the carbon footprint by choosing to offset the emissions during checkout with New Zealand’s leading carbon offset provider CarbonClick.
  • We use 100% renewable energy both at our distribution centre and home office.
  • All gifts are exclusively packed in a reusable wooden box or recyclable card board boxes filled with natural wood wool. No cellophane or other plastics used.
  • Our courier boxes have been custom-made to minimise packaging waste and reduce their footprint during transport.

Wooden box return programme

Join Aotearoa’s first sustainable gifting ecosystem! With our closed-loop programme, recipients can send back the wooden boxes to be reused.

If the recipient doesn’t have a use for the wooden box after they’ve enjoyed the tasty treats, then they can send it back to us to use again, and again, and again.

Returns are super easy:

  1. Put the empty wooden box back in our courier packaging
  2. Add the included return courier label
  3. Drop it at your local post shop or book a pickup using the tracking number on the return courier label.

Like all companies on their sustainability journey, we’re still working towards our sustainability goals, but we are constantly improving our environmental sustainability and reducing our footprint.

So so good!! What a great range of products you are able to gift!! My parents even cried and the thought that went into it was so lovely!! I wrote a note, fully expecting it to be like printed out or something but someone hand wrote it word for word which I am so beyond grateful for as I was not able to do that as I live far away from my parents!! Thank you!! - 07/12/2023

I placed an order for a person connected to the company that I work for. Ordering was very easy (the hardest part was choosing which box!). Once selected, I was updated regularly on where it was in the ordering / delivering process. I was then contacted by the recipient and she was thrilled with the surprise. I will definitely use this service again. Beautifully presented, lovely contents, and speedy delivery. Thank you. - 25/11/2023

I have used this company many, many times. Why? Because they are reliable, easy navigation on their website, products arrive exactly what you’ve seen. But wait there’s more, they even provide you with a return sticker so the crate can be used. And the icing on the cake they only use products made in Aotearoa. - 11/11/2023
