Everything You Need To Know About Christmas Gift Delivery for 2016

So... Christmas is coming... in fact as I write this post it is less than 1 month away. And that means manic traffic, crowds flocking to the malls, long cues and don't even get me started on the post office ( good thing we have a post shop in store so the 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 2016.


How much does Christmas Gift Delivery Cost?

Pick up - $0 (we are open until noon on Christmas Eve the 24th of December 2016)

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 December 2015 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 most workplaces will close on the 21st 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 have to be to us by the 22nd 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 noon on the 24th December to escape for a well-deserved break and returning on the 9th of January 2017.
Got questions: Send us an email or call us and we will be happy to help.
