We will be residing in Christchurch, New Zealand. It will not be possible for us to bring boxed gifts back to New Zealand from the United States. We discovered this site which offers those who want to give a gift to deposit something toward the purchase of a needed item. This saves you lots of time, taxes and shipping expenses and gives us the way to purchase the things we will need in Christchurch. We will be starting our new household from scratch. Thanks so much for helping us get started!
