Chuffed Gifts is a company founded during the nationwide lockdown, and their mission is to help regenerate NZ domestic tourism. Below is their story.
The impact of Covid-19 has challenged many industries in New Zealand. Businesses throughout the country have seen their revenue streams interrupted and reduced leaving no choice but to lay off employees or to close altogether. The tourism industry has been heavily affected. With the borders closed and international tourist arrivals halted, tourism operators around the country have had to find new methods, structures and product offerings to focus on attracting domestic tourists; and one such company is making a difference in this space.
Chuffed Gifts developed in early 2020 after James Fitzgerald, Co-Founder of the multi-award-winning Rotorua Canopy Tours, realised he had a problem. The borders were closed, business had dried up and the prospect of surviving on a market of only New Zealanders was the future. The question he asked himself was “How can we get more New Zealanders travelling into the regions and helping the recovery of our tourism sector?”.
The answer was obvious – what if people gifted travel experiences rather than material goods? And if the travel experiences had a multi choice aspect to them then the recipient could choose what and where inspired them the most. And the gift buyer could never fail to impress.
Two incredibly talented but Covid-19 displaced tourism marketing staff jumped at the chance to be part of this unique gift concept.
Alex Howard hired a motorhome and travelled across the North Island in winter 2020 pulling partners in to the vision, while Melissa Heath tirelessly worked to create the online and visual presence of Chuffed Gifts.
By November last year, after reimagining every aspect of the experience gift giving process for both buyer and recipient, and with a network of some of the most beautiful, adventurous and life changing experiences, they put the word out.
The results were instant. People loved the concept, filled their inboxes with ideas and most helpful of all, bought Chuffed Gifts as gifts. 2021 brings new exciting goals as Chuffed Gifts expands across New Zealand so that every Kiwi, no matter where they live, will find the company’s offerings relevant.
Corson Maize reached out to Chuffed Gifts to deliver a unique offering as part of our 2021 Early Order Offer. We know how important tourism is to the NZ economy, and thought that by partnering with Chuffed Gifts we could not only help domestic tourism operators but also support the wellbeing of members of another crucial NZ industry, our farmers.
By providing Chuffed Gifts to Corson Maize growers, we are encouraging them to take a break from the farm, to spend time with a partner, friend or family member while experiencing something new.
Corson Maize has 60 Chuffed Gift Tubes to be won by those who order their maize seed early between May 1 and July 31. Winners will receive a gift tube containing a wide variety of exciting options from across NZ. This could be sailing in the Coromandel, ziplining on Waiheke Island or kayaking with seals in Kaikoura, to name a few.
You choose the destination and the experience that appeals the most to you. When you’ve decided on your experience and location, Chuffed Gifts will issue you with an experience gift ticket and you are ready for an amazing adventure!
