About Us

Hi, My name is Michaela, I own and run It’s For You. 

There are a few things in life I love. Giving gifts, supporting New Zealand owned businesses, and being eco friendly. When I thought up It’s For You, I saw an opportunity to blend all my favourite things together, so here we are!

I’m a gift giver, for as long as I can remember I’ve loved giving gifts, and since becoming an ‘adult’ I’ve learnt how expensive and time consuming finding the perfect gift for someone can be. It’s For You is full of gifts that I’d be stoked to receive, and as the range grows I’m hoping to rope in my friends and family, to help me pick the new boxes to make sure there is a box available for anybody, and any occasion. 

When I was studying at Uni I interned at a small local business, and loved the small collaborative feel, but also recognised a lot of hardship that comes with being a small NZ owned business. All the products available in our boxes are purchased from New Zealand owned businesses, so help create a local economy and support some of that awesome kiwi ingenuity. 

I’ve been taking (small) steps toward being eco-friendly for about 8 years, and two of the things I hear the most from people around me is that becoming more eco-friendly is either too expensive or too time consuming. Our eco kits are assembled to make each room in your house less wasteful, as well as save you some money along the way!

I’m really proud of what we’ve created here, but am always happy to receive ideas, suggestions and questions. There’s heaps of ways to get in touch! You can message us through the website, on social media, or email me directly at michaela@itsforyou.co.nz
