Sending Gifts to New Zealand from the UK
If you’re in the UK looking to send gifts to New Zealand for your friends, family or clients, your options can be pretty limited. So, here at Chuffed we came up with the perfect solution. We wanted to make sending an amazing gift to your loved ones here in New Zealand easy, even when purchasing from halfway across the world.
Can you send gifts to New Zealand from the UK?
You can of course purchase a gift in the UK and send the gift to New Zealand yourself via your local post office, but there are lots of downsides with this. The first one is the fact you’ll have to pay for postage. Postage can be pretty pricy depending on what you’re sending, how quickly you want it to get there and if you want it tracked. Then you need to think about VAT/GST tax charges depending on your gift value. You also never really know how long it will take to arrive, especially with the delays of Covid these days.
So, the next best option for sending gifts to New Zealand from UK is to purchase a gift online from within New Zealand and have it sent directly to your gift recipient. This ensures your giftee won’t have to pay any extra tax, your shipping cost will be minimal (if any) and the delivery time is much shorter and you’re less likely to experience delays.
What gifts are available in New Zealand?
So now you’ve got to find that New Zealand gift online. It can be tricky to know where to start when you can’t do it in person. You can of course order flowers form a local florist, or buy a material item from a local store here in New Zealand that you know of. But how do you know they don’t already have it, or if they would like it, and who really needs more things?
An expereince gift is the perfect solution for this and waaay better than receiving more stuff. Experience gifts give your giftee incredible memories and they’re even scientifically proven to make you happier. “An experiential gift is more intensely emotional than a material possession,” says Cindy Chan a Professor at the University of Toronto who researched this. “If you want to give them something that will make them feel closer to you, give an experience.”
Experiences inspire people, help them grow, see the world differently, try new things and create less waste. Luckily here in New Zealand there are loads of incredible experience options. Think soaking in mud pools, ziplining through ancient native forests, cruising through our beautiful sounds, sipping wine amongst famous vineyards, kayaking our stunning coastline and SO many more.
It can be hard to know which one they would like to do and how do you choose just one? So, here at Chuffed we’ve teamed up with hundreds of experience providers across New Zealand to create a gift you can’t get wrong.

My sister was Chuffed!
“I used Chuffed Gifts as I’m in the U.K and wanted to send a less run of the mill birthday pressie to my sister-in-law (they live in Tauranga NZ). The website and ordering process are fab and very straightforward – the gift experience choices are varied and great value – way better than I’ve seen here in the U.K!
My lovely sister-in-law received the gift tube within 24hrs of ordering and loves all the experiences she’s got to choose from. A really great service and certainly makes an awesome gift. Thank you all at Chuffed Gifts.”
