I was delighted with the gift basket I ordered for mum on her birthday. She was thrilled with the way it was presented and especially pleased with the gift card which used a lovely font and seemed more personal. They also delivered on time. Thank you so much, I will definitely be ordering from you again.

My daughter has lived in New Zealand for over 10 years. We always send her and her family gifts for every occasion which costs and American arm and leg. I've looked many times to find a NZ Company I could order from to send local and the other day I found this company. I ordered one day and it was delivered the next. My daughter loved it. She said that the different products in the basket were the best quality and local products. I am so happy to have found this website. Thank you so much,
