Delivery Instructions

We deliver date night boxes and gifts all over New Zealand. If all the items for your date night box or gift are in stock, your order will be dispatched within 3-4 working days, in most cases, this is the next working day. Depending upon the content of the box, we may decide not to ship your box out on a Friday to prevent any products to spoil or melt over the weekend.

You will be notified if any items in the date night box or gift option you ordered is out of stock. In this instance, please allow an additional 4 – 6 working days for your box to be shipped. We will keep you updated on the status of your order.

In ultimate worst-case scenarios, rural deliveries (as defined by the courier company) can take up to 7 business days.

Delivery Rates:

We offer Free Shipping on all our products throughout New Zealand including Rural Addresses.

Delivery Time Frames (estimated):

> North Island – 1 – 3 days
> South Island – 3 – 5 days
> Rural – (as defined by our Couriers)  5 – 7 days
> PO Boxes – We are unable to send orders to PO Boxes

Please note that the above delivery time frames is only from the moment your parcel has left our premises and 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). When your order is dispatched, you will receive an automated email (from GOSWEETSPOT) with all the details, including tracking details. Most orders are able to be tracked, but there is an exception to this rule in ‘some’ rural areas as the drivers do not always carry electronic scanners.

All our packages are sent with ‘signature required’ tracking. Please inform us if you would like your package to be left unattended. Take Note in this instance: We can not take any responsibility for products like chocolates that might melt due to weather conditions OR for damage to your parcel while it was left unattended on your request. If you have a Leave Unattended Location Tag the above terms are valid.  We can not take any responsibility for products like chocolates that might melt due to weather conditions OR for damage to your parcel after it has been delivered. Otherwise, the courier will leave a card to call for the recipient to arrange re-delivery at a convenient time, alternate address or pick up from the agent/depot. 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 date night boxes and gifts, there are some situations that are out of our control, such as:

  • Incorrect delivery address
  • No access to the property and no-one to sign for the parcel
  • Nobody responds to the courier to sign for the date night box
  • Nowhere safe to leave the parcel when requested to leave unattended
  • Recipients have moved or gone away on holiday
  • The item is not collected, or re-delivery arranged once a card to call has been left

Courier Companies

We try to use Post Haste for most of our packages, but NZ Couriers and NZ Post may be used in some instances. We take great care in packaging our items. Unfortunately, we can never tell you when exactly your parcel will be delivered; this completely depends on when the driver does his run in your delivery area.
