How are shipping costs calculated?+
Shipping is based off a number of factors - whether you are shipping to one address or multiple and if you're sending one gift or several. When shipping all items to one address, we have a base rate cost based on whether shipping is North Island or South Island, this base rate cost increases as the number of bags increase. For example, for 1-3 separate gift bags going to one address in anywhere in the North Island your base rate is $8.00. In the However, if you selected to ship to multiple addresses you would be charged the base rate (in this case $8.00) + $2.00 per additional bag. For the South Island, base rates start from $18.00 for 1-3 separate gift bags going to one address, if sending to multiple addresses in within the South Island, an additional $4.00 per bag will be added to your cart. The order summary clearly displays your base rate + any add on charges if you selected to ship to multiple addresses. If you have any questions, please email us, we're happy to chat you through all the options.

Why do I need to ‘curate a gift list’, what is the purpose?+
You might be shopping for ie three different people with varying budgets and requirements for each person. If you set up three separate gifts lists that enables us to know what products need to be packaged together. If you supply the delivery addresses and require hand written notes then we know which gift to send with which message.
What if I have multiple people receiving gifts under each gift list+
No problem, simply increase the amount of product you require under each gift list to match the number of people you are buying gifts for - we’ll then package that amount of gifts up for you. If you supply the addresses we will also ship the gifts to each recipient so you don’t have to lift a finger.
How many different gift lists can I set up?+
As many as you’d like, there is no limit. If you have five different groups of people or budgets then create 5 different gift lists.
