Giving back to the Wellington community

  • The majority of our wooden gift boxes are made by The Shed Project** — a community space in Paraparaumu on the Kāpiti Coast, providing opportunities for people with disabilities
  • We set aside 1% from every sale and donate to Wellington charities such as Kaibosh or DCM
  • Growing Wellington’s regional economy; by buying from We Love Local you directly help small companies in our communities

Read more about our social mission and sustainability commitment.

** Depending on availability we may substitute The Shed Project boxes with a similar-looking wooden box manufactured in NZ. In that case, we will donate $1 per box to The Shed Project.

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.

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. CourierPost 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.
