Honey & Cocoa began as a store in gorgeous Arrowtown, stocked to the rafters with treats and treatments chosen for their quality, sustainability and ethical values. We were proud as punch of the talented beekeepers, chocolatiers and beauty helpers of New Zealand, and loved sharing their goodies with visitors from near and far.
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.
And so, the gift box was born. More than a hamper filled with delicious goods, it’s a soapbox for like minded 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 plastic.
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 – or an arm and a leg for that matter.
