          Covid-19 Information

          We continue to operate as normal under the 'Red' Traffic Light System - sending gifts all over New Zealand. 

          Parcel delays

          Due to a significant volume of freight and reduced staffing due to COVID, Central Otago, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga and Lower Hutt have moved into a ‘high pressure’ status for deliveries. Please expect some delays when sending gifts to these regions.

          While we cannot guarantee delivery on your preferred date, we will try our best and ensure we provide you with timely updates on the delivery of your gift.

          We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this.

          With New Zealand sitting in 'Red', plus extremely high freight volumes, some courier items going to other regions may also be delayed.

          Please view NZ Courier website here for Delivery Updates across the country.

          The vast majority of items continue to be delivered within the standard timeframes mentioned below, but it is inevitable that some courier items arrive a little later than usual.


          Standard Timeframes
          • North Island: 1- 2 business days
          • South Island: 2-3 business days
          • Please add an extra 2-3 days for rural


          While we try our hardest to deliver on the day you have chosen, exact dates are not guaranteed due to couriers being out of our control.

          Contactless deliveries & Timeframes

          Our courier partner NZ Couriers are operating under a 'Contactless Delivery' policy to protect the safety of their staff and the community. Contact-less delivery works as follows: 

          1. Our delivery driver arrives at your premises and alerts you that they have arrived e.g. knock on your door
          2. Our delivery driver will stand about 2 meters away from you and ask for your name, then they will enter it and sign 'C.D.' (Contact-less Delivery) on your behalf (this will show in the tracking information)
          3. They'll then place your parcel down in front of them to complete the delivery or in a more appropriate place you indicate e.g. the doorstep

          As usual, if you aren't present when our delivery driver arrives, they will leave a missed delivery card.

          Sending to Auckland Businesses

          Most businesses based in Auckland will be closed during red and orange lights, so we recommend sending your gifts to a residential address.

          Sending gifts to quarantine facilities

          We have sent lots of gifts to people in managed isolations. It's such a great way to lift their spirits and pass the time.

          Please note that alcohol is not permitted so keep this in mind when choosing your gift box. Please make sure you also provide us with the correct Hotel Name and Room Number.

          Mini Thankyou

          I recently sent a small gift to a friend. Using the build your own small gift box was the perfect way to say Thinking of You. Little Koha make it so easy and affordable, especially when you can't be there in person.

          Thanks Vicki. I hope it bought some joy to your friend! We hope to help you again soon.

          Brilliant service and product

          I purchased a custom/make your own box. This was perfect for the situation as then I was able to add in items that were really suited to the person I was sending this to and for the reason. I feel like Little Koha have really thought out the little touches in sending gift boxes that make this a wow and special service.
          I highly recommend using them.

          Thank you Lisa. Our Build Your Own feature is proving to be such a popular option! I hope the recipient loved all of the goodies you chose.

          Xmas basket

          Prompt delivery of goods after another company could not supply goods. Amazing array of goods. Beautiful well priced gift boxes. Will definitely buy from little Koha again. Thank you. Merry Christmas

          Thanks Barb. That's so great to hear. Merry Christmas to you!

          Beautiful surprise

          A lovely wrapped surprise for my friend. They were even more delighted when they opened the box!

          That's awesome to hear Amanda! We hope we can help you surprise someone else in the future. Thanks.

          Fantastic Gift Boxes

          This is such an awesome idea as you get to hand pick for the recipient so it is personal. The despatch time was quick and the person got it in East Auckland the following day despite it being level 4. The quality of the gifts was superb as was the packaging and overall presentation. The recipient was thrilled. Thank you

          Thank you Joanne. Yes the build your own feature is so great for customising your gift, it's become such a popular option! I'm so glad your gift was well received.
