About Us

Starting in 2015, Beautiful Surprises has grown and evolved significantly. The idea for the popular advent calendar came from a passion for beauty and pampering products, as well as a commitment to supporting local New Zealand businesses. And who wouldn't adore amazing individually wrapped surprises?

Owned by Kash of Skye Candle and Body Care, home of NZ’s popular handcrafted skincare and soy candle ranges, it will come as no surprise that each and every product within our boxes has been carefully chosen and beautifully packaged.  

Experience the magic of Beautiful Surprises – where we share our love for New Zealand's finest locally made products with you all year round! Join us in counting down the days until the special occasion, indulging in one delightful treat each day! 



A thoughtful gift

Time and time again, studies have shown that functional gifts are the most popular ones to receive. Being given something you can enjoy using is far more appreciated than something which will end up sitting in the cupboard or being regifted.

Our much-loved gift boxes contain only the best products handpicked from small businesses throughout NZ. They can be smelt, eaten and used, giving hours of enjoyment to the recipient. Then of course there’s your enjoyment too – the knowledge that you’ve given someone something special and that they love it!

We support NZ businesses

We love showing our support for businesses from our beautiful country, from a single-person operation to bigger household names. Buying New Zealand-made products ensures you are buying cruelty-free, and many New Zealand businesses make products that are vegan, organic, or plant-based.

As if that wasn't enough, when you buy from New Zealand-based businesses, you are buying products with less carbon footprint than imported products, and supporting the domestic economy. Sometimes it's hard to learn about new brands - which is where Beautiful Surprises comes in! 

Our boxes are filled with delicious beauty and pampering gifts from a range of companies, so you can discover exactly how much New Zealand has to offer.

Sometimes one day is just not enough to celebrate – with Beautiful Surprises, you can enjoy counting down with one treat a day until the special day!
