  • They are easy to purchase. Gift cards are available at most every business and retailer you can think of; including supermarkets, restaurants, spas and clothing stores. You simply just need to either walk into the permise and buy it from the front counter or order it online through various retailers.
  • They give the consumer control. Gift cards are the seasonal equivalent of a blank cheque, you are effectively handing over control of what can be bought to the card recipient, and people love this. People love to have choice when the option is available, they would rather receive a £20 gift card over a £25 gift.
  • They offer a tailored and unique experience. Gift cards are a great way to give your friends and family a sense of excitement and luxury by introducing them to a new brand or whole experience that they may never have thought of before.
