As a Kiwi living in Australia, I wanted to buy some beautiful NZ gifts for my daughter who is having her first baby.
I found Gift Guru & Baby Gift Ideas online and made contact to get more information.

Michelle got back to me immediately and was extremely helpful in the ordering process. She also gave me great advice about the Teddy bear collection which is next on my order list!

My daughter (who also lives in Australia), has received all her baby Kiwi goodies and she is absolutely thrilled.
She sent me pictures to show how beautifully the gifts were wrapped in gorgeous Pohutukawa style wrapping paper. Such a nice detail.

This has been a very easy ordering experience with great quality service. A wonderful company for Expat Kiwis to use wanting a part of home.

Thank you Michelle.

Thanks for your great service and for the $5 refund. The parcel arrived yesterday and I'm really pleased with the two buzzybee items I bought.
