Waiheke Island Suppliers

The Gift Loft team are passionate about all things Waiheke! With strong connections to the Island, we are delighted to showcase some of Waiheke Islands lovely, high quality products in The Gift Loft’s range.  These products make lovely NZ gifts.

 Azzuro Groves Olive Oil

 We are proud to be the suppliers of Azzuro Groves award winning olive oil.  Produced from olive trees grown on pristine Waiheke Island, New Zealand, their olive oil is a superior blend of finest olives, packaged in sleek and stylish bottles.  We have selected several of their olive oil blends which make lovely individual gifts for a host or hostess – so much nicer and more memorable than giving a bottle of wine (which, whilst a thoughtful gift is likely to be drunk and forgotten during the meal).  It makes an appropriate corporate gift for employees, colleagues and customers. Or, buy one for yourself to enjoy as a dipping oil or to use to enhance your cooking.

We also stock their luxurious olive oil soap in a choice of lavender; or rose & geranium.  Made from olive oil, it will cleanse and nourish your skin, leaving it silky smooth.  

Read our blog for a list of the awards that Azzuro Groves received at the prestigious Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition 2013, including a gold medal for the Azzuro Blend and a gold medal for their label.

The Waiheke Honey Company

 The Waiheke Honey Company lovingly nurture bees that produce high quality, delicious honey, full of nutritional and health enhancing properties.  The bees live on the cliff tops overlooking stunning Palm Beach.

Among their range, we love their Native Bush Honey – produced from the bees pollinating native flora in the wild New Zealand bush; and Pohutukawa Honey – a light, creamy honey that is likely to be from a Pohutukawa tree that has been pollinated along the Palm Beach cliff tops. They also have a sensational Manuka Honey which we will be adding to a “Get Well” Hamper next winter.

The Waiheke Honey Company package their all natural honey in gorgeous, re-usable jars.  They also produce bees wax candles which we will be adding to our summer Christmas hampers and flip lid, natural bees wax lip balms.

Jenny’s Kitchen

Jenny’s Kitchen produce an amazing and award winning tamarind chutney (Cuisine Artisan Awards 2012).  It is like nothing else on the market – a sweet chutney that is all natural with a spice that leaves a tangy, spicy flavour on your palate. This chutney is perfect with wine and cheese; antipasto; tapas; serve with fish or curries; spread on a pizza base or cold meat sandwiches.  Make a dip using chutney mixed through sour cream.  Choose from hot or medium spice flavour.

Jenny’s Kitchen also produce a divine range of marmalade “just like Nana used to make”.  We have chosen their orange and lemon marmalade for some of our hampers, such as “Morning Has Broken” and our “Granny” Hamper.
