Is Manuka Honey a good gift?

Let’s face it, gifting can be daunting! It’s often difficult to find something unique that shows you’ve put care and consideration into finding and choosing the perfect gift, whether it be for friends, family and loved ones, or for staff, colleagues, or clients in a corporate environment. When faced with the prospect of trying to find the perfect gift, Manuka honey is a great option as it’s well known for being very special and unique, it’s a gift that show’s you truly care. No matter what your budget there are many fantastic gift options with Manuka Honey. Whether it be an impressive gift basket or hamper, a beautifully presented high grade UMF/MGO pot, or a stunning beauty product containing Manuka Honey, there is something for everyone and every occasion.

Here’s just some of the many reason Manuka Honey makes an ideal gift for friends, family, staff and corporate business partners:


Manuka Honey is a Unique Gift with a Unique Origin

Manuka honey is produced primarily in New Zealand from the nectar of the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium). This specific origin makes it unique and exotic, making it an appealing gift for those who appreciate high-quality, artisanal products.


Medicinal properties without being too personal

Manuka Honey is renowned for its potential health benefits due to its high levels of methylglyoxal (MGO), a compound known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Some people use Manuka Honey for wound healing, sore throat relief, or digestive health. As a gift, it can be seen as a thoughtful choice for wellness-conscious individuals.


Delicious and Distinct Flavour

Manuka Honey has a distinct flavour profile that sets it apart from other honey varieties. It often has a rich, earthy taste with hints of caramel and a slightly nutty note – we think is utterly delicious. The unique flavour can be a pleasant surprise for those who enjoy exploring new culinary experiences.


Luxurious Presentation

Many Manuka Honey products as well as Manuka Honey gift baskets are presented in elegant and premium packaging, making them visually very appealing as gifts. Some come in decorative jars or packaging that adds to the overall presentation, never failing to surprise and delight. Some examples of the most rare and luxuriously presented honeys can be found here.



Manuka honey can be used in various culinary applications. It can be drizzled over yogurt, added to tea, used as a sweetener in recipes, or simply enjoyed on its own. Its versatility makes it a gift that can be incorporated into a wide range of dishes and beverages.


Long Shelf Life

Manuka Honey has a long shelf life, thanks in part to its natural antibacterial properties. This means it can be stored and enjoyed over an extended period, making it a practical gift option.


Symbolic of Care

Gifting Manuka honey conveys a sense of care and thoughtfulness. Its potential health benefits and distinctive flavour show that you've chosen a gift with the recipient's wellbeing and enjoyment in mind.


Ethical and Sustainable

Many Manuka Honey producers prioritise sustainable and ethical beekeeping practices. By gifting Manuka Honey, you support these practices and contribute to the conservation of native flora and fauna.


Range of Options

Manuka honey comes in various grades and potency levels, allowing you to select a product that fits your budget and the preferences of the recipient. Higher UMF/MGO ratings typically indicate a stronger antibacterial effect and may be preferred by those seeking its health benefits. A gift basket can offer a range of Manuka Honey products in 1 basket. Our range is specifically designed to only contain Manuka Honey products for the extra Wow Factor.


Manuka honey makes a great gift due to its unique qualities, potential health benefits, and the sense of thoughtfulness and luxury it conveys. It's a versatile and memorable present suitable for a variety of occasions.
