Our Story

Kia ora! Let's share our story ... Purely Northland has been created to share a little bit of quality Northland product goodness with everyone.

The idea had been brewing in my mind for some time, but we have the nationwide lockdown to thank for making it happen. As Kiwis re-emerged and responded to calls to support local, I wanted to play a part in supporting our local producers. Thus, the search for delightful and delicious Northland products began, and what an awe-inspiring mission it’s been. The product quality and passion of our suppliers has blown me away, and I know there are many more amazing producers to find!

I have had the pleasure of personally tasting, trying and testing every product so you can be assured your lucky recipient is receiving a unique, thoughtful gift of the highest quality.

There's more to our story - The Gift Box Curator! Having created meals for some of the world’s most discerning palettes, it’s fair to say your gift is in expert hands with Nicola. A Taranaki girl who married a Northland man and now lives with her young family in Kaitaia, in New Zealand’s far north.

Despite visiting many beautiful global destinations, Nicola believes there’s no place in the world nicer than Northland – "the beaches, the people, the lifestyle, everything".  This is my slice of paradise and I'm proud to call it home.
