Love NZ made

Beautiful, quality, hand-crafted products

At the Joy of Giving we love to support homegrown talent and enterprise. As many as possible of our suppliers are local Kiwi businesses that contribute to the wellbeing and sustainability of our precious environment and communities. Your wellbeing gift box is individually curated with kindness and care and includes NZ designs and beautiful, quality, hand-crafted products made in NZ wherever possible. 


We take our environmental impact seriously and have purposefully designed sustainability into our business approach. We have minimised the non-recyclable packaging found with conventional gift products, avoid single-use plastic products/cellophane and instead select re-useable cardboard boxes/recyclable tissue paper as our packaging choice. Our gift boxes are intended for experiencing moments and for the receiver to enjoy using over time, with end-of-life re-use/composting considered in our selection.
