Let’s be totally transparent, gift cards are just the best gift idea ever! Here at Brilliant Gift Ideas UK, we believe this is one of the best options if you don’t want to spend a lot of money or when you don’t really know what to buy for a person.

They can be bought in two different ways:

  • Physically, you can find them in different shops and normally it’s a paper card together with a receipt that contains a code to be used by the person that receives the card.
  • Digitally, you pay for it online and get the code in your email. You will have to only provide this code for the person and that’s it.

Both ways of buying a Gift Card are good and they present the same advantage, the code is ready to use in a few minutes after the payment.

Flexible or Fixed Amount

Choosing the amount is quite simple. You can buy a gift card containing between 5.00 pounds up to 150.00 pounds. Some companies are flexible and let you choose the amount, others have a fixed amount, for example, 10, 20, or 50 pounds.
