About Us


About Us

Giving is a gift – and at Apex Gifts, we’re delighted to help Christchurch locals and Kiwis nationwide celebrate and commemorate those special moments and occasions with thoughtfully curated and beautifully presented bespoke gift boxes, baskets and hampers.

We’re passionate about great gifting, and we’ve been helping people in our community, around New Zealand and throughout the world surprise and spoil their loved ones for 16 years. When we know we’ve played a part in brightening someone’s day, that’s a day well spent – and we’re honoured to contribute to those special moments for each and every one of our customers!


Who We Are

Locally owned and operated, Apex Gifts is an family business – based out of Leeston, on the outskirts of the gorgeous garden city of Christchurch. Established in 2000, Apex Gifts was purchased by Diane and Colin in 2004. During this time, we’ve poured our hearts and souls into making it one of Canterbury’s favourite custom-gifting online stores – expanding our offering, innovating with exciting new ideas, and exploring every nook and cranny of New Zealand for the finest locally-crafted and homegrown giftware, produce, flowers and treats to delight our customers.


We LOVE Thoughtful Gifts!

At Apex Gifts, we’re proud to go above and beyond for our customers – customising our gift boxes and baskets to result in thoughtful gifts that are truly tailored to each recipient.

For us, the very best thing about owning a gift box business has been getting to know our customers, helping them customise our bespoke gift baskets and hampers, and having the opportunity to personally deliver thousands of gifts throughout Christchurch to so many absolutely wonderful people.

We really do consider it a privilege and an honour to provide our valued customers with this service. It’s such a satisfying feeling for us, and the feedback we receive from our customers and gift recipients makes every moment we’re at work an absolute joy.


As a one-off special delivery during our ‘wellbeing week we arranged for Apex Gift Boxes Ltd to deliver fruit boxes to our stores in Christchurch and Hamilton.

The boxes were beautifully presented and well received. Our people were impressed with the quality, amount and variety of the fruit, which they enjoyed over several days. One person remarked it was the best pineapple he’d ever eaten!

Diane was super helpful and a pleasure to deal with. She quickly followed up any queries and sent me a photo of each fruit box before it was delivered. Thank you, Diane, for making my job easy!

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift to send to a family member, friend or work colleague, we offer a wide array of options to help you solve your shopping dilemma. Our philosophy is all about making the process simple for you – the gifter – while customising our gift hampers and boxes to result in gifts that are thoughtful and unique.

‘Outside the Box’ Gifting

We understand our customers have a LOT of options when shopping online, which is why we go above and beyond to curate gift hampers with a personal touch.

Partnering with a wide selection of luxury and artisan New Zealand suppliers, we can arrange food gifts for people with special diet requirements, such as, gluten intolerance, diabetic, dairy-free or allergy, and take extra time in the presentation of our gift boxes – including all the little details that make the gift you give that much more special.

Apex Gifts offers bespoke gifting for a wide range of occasions, including birthdays, engagements, weddings, housewarmings, baby births, sympathy or bereavement, Easter, Mother’s Day, Christmas, and unique corporate gift solutions to thank your clients and business partners.


Sent with Love, Delivered with Care

We take the utmost care in the packaging and delivery of our customized gift boxes and baskets to ensure the gift you give arrives in perfect condition.

Each individual gift box is packaged with natural woodwool to protect the contents, and packaged into an outer carton to protect the box during shipping.  All bulk orders are packaged into outer cartons with extra protective packaging for shipping.

Orders within Christchurch (see our FAQs page for included suburbs) are personally delivered by us, and nationwide deliveries are made with care by our trusted courier partners.


How Can We Help YOU?

We’re proud to offer exceptional customer care and service, so please contact us to discuss your gifting needs and ideas for a customised gift box. We look forward to gifting with you!
