A taste of New Zealand

Our Story

Honey & Cocoa began as a boutique tasting store in gorgeous Arrowtown, stocked to the rafters with treats and treatments chosen for their quality, sustainability and ethical values. 

Proud as punch, praised by our talented beekeepers, chocolatiers and beauty helpers of New Zealand, and we loved sharing their goodies with visitors from near and far.

The sweet tastes of local & raw honey combined with bean to bar, vegan and sugar free chocolate indulged our daily visitors- plus we simply loved showcasing and educating everyone from far and wide on the benefits and versatility of cacao and raw manuka honey...

Bundling up the best of Aotearoa.

Our Story

But like many New Zealanders, world events that shall not be named made us think long and hard about our purpose and we realised it was time to think inside the box. That sharing the fruits of our people, flora and fauna didn’t have to be limited to a stunning location.

It was about helping Kiwis share the best of our country with the ones they love - wherever they were, whatever their budget.

Inspired by the beauty of our backyard, we knew the sweetness of honey and chocolate, paired with talented local gifts, perfectly compliment your thoughts of love, care or celebration. 

You are the sweetest gift of them all

Our Story

And so, the gift box was born. More than a hamper filled with delicious goods, it’s a soapbox for likeminded local businesses to showcase their talents. We hand pick each product or help you craft a custom box, then bundle it up in recycled or compostable materials such as cardboard, wood wool and reused packaging.

Most importantly, we guarantee our gift boxes will go down a treat every time – not shoved to the back of a sock draw or left to sadly wilt (we’re talking about you, expensive flowers). They’re boxes of joy packed full of thought, that don’t cost the world. 

We know that's it in fact you, that is truly sweet. 
Show your thinking of that special person, through personalized, affordable and pure New Zealand gift boxes- or gift yourself a sweet treat or treatment!

The greatest gift is knowledge
