Little boxes of joy and decadence for the time-pressed, geographically challenged gift giver. Perfect Christmas presents for friends and family in New Zealand.

Creating exquisite gift baskets and hampers with a focus on quality over quantity is key for Queenstown based Korora, an online gift boutique going from strength to strength in its first year of operation.

Director Alison Broadhead said the company’s on-going quest for award winning and “fun and fabulous” products delivered as “a little box of decadence” meant its business had seen substantial growth since opening a year ago.

“It’s all about quality, and originality and comes down to using the best products we can possibly find,” said Alison.

“I think everyone knows someone who deserves a treat once in a while, things they typically cannot justify adding to the weekly shop and we simply make that whole gift giving process easy.”

A family business, Alison and husband Mike have lined the walls of their Queenstown warehouse with quality products painstakingly sourced principally from New Zealand.

Whilst their gift boxes typically contain fewer items than a more traditional style hamper, the focus is on products that are award-winning, original and fun and give each box a feeling of decadence. Priced very competitively, they also offer great value.

With sixty very different gift boxes now on offer, Korora boasts a range that they believe provides a solution for every time pressed, geographically challenged gift giver and are perfect for family, friends and clients.

They have also added a range of 12 Classic Christmas Hampers featuring limited edition NZ wines that are only available directly from the cellar door or from Korora Gifts. Stunning dessert wines from Akarua Vineyard in Central Otago include Ice Noir and Alchemy to celebrate 150 uears of gold in Arrowtown NZ.

“Gift buying on-line should be enjoyable, effortless, safe and reliable. Every time.”

Alison said the aesthetic of the Korora gift box was an important aspect of the business.

“A beautiful gift arriving on your doorstep is a lovely way to say “I’m thinking of you, Get Well Soon, Thank You or Happy Christmas.”

“I think it’s the quality and fun that is included in each of them that makes them different and much appreciated. That and a passion for providing great service is a winning combination. Repeat custom is our best compliment,” said Alison.

Most of Korora's gift boxes contain something to enjoy, something to share and something to keep, a quirky twist on the more traditional hamper.
