We are taking a short BREAK! Any orders placed after 4pm Thursday 23rd November will be dispatched on Wednesday 6th December. Please read our latest blog for more info!
CHRISTMAS – Due to the busy nature of the Christmas gifting season, we suggest you read here about our Order Deadlines for the 2017 Christmas season.
The Pressie Box offer stylish gift boxes and gift baskets for corporate companies and your loved ones. Offering hands on personal service and paying careful attention to every little detail, we will deliver a gift that is guaranteed to impress.
We deliver gift boxes and gift baskets anywhere in New Zealand and overseas, with FREE delivery in the Tokoroa/Putaruru area. In MOST cases if we receive your order BEFORE 2pm, your item will be dispatched that same business day. We can also send outside of New Zealand, please contact us to discuss.
We are very excited to be able to offer you a set delivery fee of $10 throughout New Zealand including all RURAL destinations!
Please note: this does not apply to bulk orders. Please contact us for a quote.
We offer FREE delivery in the Tokoroa & Putaruru URBAN area.
- North Island – if order is placed BEFORE 2pm it is likely that it will reach its North Island destination overnight. This excludes Rural Delivery items.
- South Island – generally delivered in 2 days.
- Rural – please allow an additional 1-2 days longer depending on Rural Courier Schedule. Please note it is often earlier. There is no guarantee of exact time of arrival.
- PO Boxes – We are able to send orders to PO Boxes.
Please note that at times deliveries can be delayed due to circumstances beyond our control (such as: natural disasters, road closures, bad weather, inter-island sailings being cancelled and the like). Please be assured that The Pressie Box will do our very best to have your gift delivered when requested, but cannot guarantee this 100% due to delays that may occur within the courier network. We track each order until delivery is confirmed, please let us know if you would like the tracking number supplied to you. The exception to this is ‘some’ rural deliveries as the drivers do not always carry electronic scanners.
All gifts are now sent ‘signature not required’ & left by the courier at the delivery address in a safe place should your recipient not be home. We have found this avoids unnecessary delays with delivery of your gift and saves the recipient from chasing packages at depots/agents if they are not home at the time of delivery.
PLEASE let us know when checking out if you would prefer ‘signature required’.
Please note – our couriers will attempt to deliver the gift basket to the address you specify and will leave in a safe place if recipient is not home at the time of delivery. However, if they do not feel it is suitable to leave, or if there is no way to gain access, the courier will leave a card to call for the recipient to arrange re-delivery at a convenient time or alternate address, or pick up from the agent/depot. (Note that signature required is not available on some addresses such as Rural Delivery).
We find that if you have an alternate daytime address, such as a work address that delivery is a quicker and smoother process.
While we do our absolute best to ensure timely delivery of your gift, there are some situations that are out of our control, these are:
- You supply the incorrect address
- No access to the property and no-one to collect it.
- Nobody responds to the courier to sign for the gift and nowhere safe to leave it or signature required.
- Recipients have moved or gone away on holiday.
- The item is not collected, or re-delivery arranged once a card has been left.
We suggest you use the NZ POST address & postcode finder to double check your delivery details.
We send your order using courier companies who we have learned we can trust to give the best service and most reliable on-time delivery. We currently use Courier Post.
We take great care in packaging our items. All orders are placed in a strong outer carton. Unfortunately we can never tell you when exactly a gift will be delivered – this completely depends on when the driver does his run in that area.
We are happy to deliver on a weekend in the Tokoroa area, however all other orders received over the weekend will be processed Monday morning. For Public Holidays, the order will be processed on the next business day.
Please provide ward number and correct name (female patients may have checked in under their married name or maiden name). Please check with the hospital first, as often the patient is discharged from hospital by the time your gift arrives. It is advisable to send your gift to the recipient’s home instead, if you are unsure.
For more detailed on sending gifts to Hospitals, please read our BLOG on the ‘In’s and Out’s of Gift Delivery To Hospitals’.
Couriers sometimes experience difficulties in deliveries to apartments because (1) there is no safe place to leave gifts behind when no one is home; (2) some apartments are security coded and access to these apartments is difficult. Please ensure that someone will be home to receive the gift sent, or consider sending your gift to a work address.
We welcome delivery of packages to PO Boxes.
