Mothers Day

Mothers day is celebrated on the 8 May in New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, Iceland and many other countries. Sweden celebrates it on the 29th May. Norway has already celebrated it in February, but they have their own very special day coming ...

For Mother’s day we have put together some great gift ideas. Please check out our Mothers day section:

  • We have a special on the heart shaped hooks: Normally $15, Mothers day Special:$13.00
  • How about a handmade necklace, brooch or ear rings from our new Range “Kajsa Strul
  • It’s getting chilly out there; a hat from Mormor’s Roses is guaranteed to be an appreciated gift.
  • Maybe a print from By Friday?
  • If nothing else takes your fancy – how about some lollies or perhaps some Elderflower/lingon berry cordial – the perfect autumn drink.

17th May - Syttende Mai

17 May - The Norwegian Constitution Day and the National Day of Norway. To help you celebrate we have stocked up on Gjetost!

Will there be a parade in Wellington? Please let us know!

Free copy of Sweden & Swedes -courtesy of Consulate General of Sweden in Wellington

The Consulate General of Sweden very kindly gave us some copies of this publication to hand out at the Scandinavian Gathering in Norsewood this year. We have a few copies left and the Consulate General of Sweden have offered us to give these away to our customers. Thank you very much to the Consulate General of Sweden in Wellington.

If you are keen to receive a free copy of Sweden & Swedes, please tick the box "Yes please send me a free copy of Sweden & Swedes, courtesy of Consulate General of Sweden" at the checkout page.

While stock lasts.

Price Increase at SweNZ Taste

Yes, unfortunately due to the changes in exchange rates and increased petrol prices we have had to increase our prices slightly on some products. We have done our best to keep the increase to a minimum. But as we already have very small margins on our product we don't have any choice but to add on the increased cost to our products.

Fastway Freight change at SweNZ Taste

Our freight company, Fastway, have increased the cost of shipping. Hence you will notice a small increase of shipping cost. However, the good new is - Fastway has now deemed us eligible to buy their cheapest option for the 2kg "shoe box size" labels so the "up to four items" shipping cost is now even cheaper!
