So... Christmas is coming... in fact as I write this post it is less than a month away. And that means manic traffic, crowds flocking to the malls, long queues and don't even get me started on the post office ( good thing we have a post depot in store so the refrigerated courier comes to us).

It's that jolly, fun, busy Christmas time for the team at Citywide Florist shop! Orders are coming from many places in New Zealand and in fact all over the world! Our shelves are filled to the brim and the shop smells divine with Christmas lilies already available.

If you haven't got your Christmas Gifting done yet... and you are one of those people who likes to leave things down to the wire then here is our need to know guide to Christmas Gifting for 2019.


How much does Christmas Gift Delivery Cost?

Pick up - $0 (we are open until noon on Christmas Eve the 24th of December 2019)

Christchurch Suburbs and CBD $15.00

Christchurch Outer - $20.00

Canterbury Rural - $25.00 Rural Deliveries need to be ordered by the 22nd of December for delivery on the 23rd.

Rest of the South Island - $27.00

North Island $28.00 

When will my Christmas Gift be Delivered?

When you order online or call, you will be asked, "when do you want your flowers delivered"? once you have given us the date, we will have it delivered during that time. We can cater for 'morning delivery' or 'afternoon delivery', however, we can not deliver to an exact time as we use a professional courier service.

The final delivery day is 24th and we must have the order by 11 am to be able to be delivered that day.

Rural deliveries have to be in by the 22nd for delivery on the 23rd.

If you want to spoil them at work we recommend getting their Christmas treats delivered before the 19th as mostworkplaces will close on the 20th and you want to make sure they receive their gift in time for Christmas.

What happens if my order is going out of Christchurch?

Gifts going out of town will have to be placed by the 21st of December. Our rural couriers leave early in the morning so if you can get the order in the day before you require your delivery it is very helpful. If you can also supply a phone number for the recipient in case there is a dog or locked gate on the property.

Can I deliver to workplaces? 

Sure you can,  just let us know the company name and if it is a multi-story building, what floor the gift is to be delivered to. Don't forget to tell us if the recipient's work hours too. Just bear in mind their Christmas working hours - to make sure they are there and someone will be at the reception to receive it for them. We recommend you get them delivered before the 19th and they break for the holidays.

Our team will be working hard making sure everything is just perfect for you. We are closing at 3pm on the 24th December to escape for a well-deserved break and returning on the 6th of January 2019. Please pre-order to give us ample time to make up your order and get it delivered or ready for pickup on time.
2019 Christmas Hours:
Monday 16th - Friday 20th December Open 8.30am - 5.30pm 
21st Saturday Open 8.30am until 3 pm.
Got questions: Send us an email or call us and we will be happy to help.
