          *Important Notice*

          We received a message from Santa this week and he’s a little concerned about his friends at the Couriers, so we want to pass that on to all of our lovely customers.

          As you may have seen in the news, we’re experiencing unprecedented times in terms of delivery and courier congestion across New Zealand.

          We have been advised by our courier company that due to the different Alert-Levels, extremely high freight volumes, and Health and Safety requirements (including distancing and sanitisation) the industry is under a lot of stress.

          What does this mean for you?

          While the majority of deliveries are still being received on time, there is a risk of delays. With Christmas just around the corner we want to help you avoid disappointment and missing out on the ultimate gift experience for you and your lucky giftee.

          We’re encouraging you to please pre-book your gift boxes now, for dispatch during the first two weeks of December.

           A ‘No peeking until Christmas Day’ sticker will be placed on the shipping carton, so if your gift arrives early your recipient could place it under the tree. You can use our delivery date picker to choose when you’d like your gift to be delivered.

          We recommend sending it at least 7 to 10 days before Christmas (particularly for South Island and rural deliveries).

          Here at Little Koha, gifting is our specialty, and it’s our goal to have as many Kiwis as possible experience the joy of opening a gorgeously curated gift box on Christmas Day.

          Please chat with us if you’re unsure of shipping times or need any help sorting your beautiful gifts.


          Covid-19 Information

          We are not affected by the new Covid Alert Levels - we are operating as usual, sending gifts all over New Zealand. However, some changes may apply to deliveries including delays. 

          Possible delays

          With regions in New Zealand at different Alert-Levels, plus extremely high freight volumes, some courier items may be delayed.

          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 New Timeframes for November -December 2021
          • North Island: 1- 2 business days
          • North Island: 1- 4 business  days
          • South Island: 2-3 business days
          • South Island: 2-5 business days
          • Please add an extra 2-3 days for rural
          • Please add an extra 3-5 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.

          Sending to Auckland Businesses

          Most businesses based in Auckland will be closed during Level 3 and 2 so we recommend sending your gifts to a residential address, or use our delivery date picker to choose a date after the proposed Level 3 timeframe.
          If you have already sent a gift to a business that is now closed, we may be able to arrange a re-direction. Please email   

          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.

          Contactless deliveries & Timeframes

          Our courier partner NZ Couriers are operating under a 'Contactless Delivery' policy to protect their staff and the community by always maintaining a safe distance. This means they may leave parcels in a safe place and do not require a signature.

          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

          Website is very simple to use, great product range so it is easy to design the right package. Payment portal was simple. Items shipped swiftly and were of good quality. I am about to purchase a second one for another friend.

          Sounds like we ticked all the boxes for you. Thank you Christopher, your support is hugely appreciated!


          The recipient of our gift box was absolutely thrilled. The presentation was elegant and well thought out. The gifts we selected all of high quality, and were arranged carefully inside the gift box, making it on the courier without incident. Thanks for doing such a great job - very definitely appreciate it!

          You're so welcome Nick! I'm so pleased the recipient loved their gift and we were able to deliver the ultimate gift experience to you both!
