HomeHospitality10 best e-voucher e-gift ideas for Londoners

    A study by the UKGCVA found that the e-gift card market in the UK was worth £6.5 billion in 2020.

    What’s UKGCVA, you might ask – well, it is the UK Gift Card and Voucher Association.

    Yes, an association specifically looking out for the interests of gift card and voucher enthusiasts.

    It’s like discovering there’s an association for people who love eating tacos on Tuesdays. (Tuesday Taco Association? TTA?)

    But in all seriousness, the existence of the association and the fact that the e-voucher industry is worth close to £7 billion is good enough proof of the popularity of e-vouchers and gift cards.

    And why wouldn’t that be?

    COVID restrictions and the threat of being sneezed on by someone carrying the virus make shopping online a much safer and more comfortable option.

    Also, let’s be honest. Who wants to go to a crowded shopping center and fight over the last sock or stand in a queue to get to your table? (Not me!)

    So, e-vouchers are the perfect solution for those looking to treat their loved ones to a special experience. Right from the comfort of home.

    Plus, an e-voucher also allows for flexibility. There is no urgency to avail of the experience. There’s always a possibility of postponing it for a later date.

    But the tough part is finding the right e-vouchers. You want something that the receiver would actually enjoy. And something that meets your budget as well.

    Also, wouldn’t it be great if you could support local London businesses near where you live in London while gifting e-vouchers to loved ones?

    Well, the genie granted all your wishes. We have here a list of the top 10 e-voucher gift ideas.

    Read on.

    How to choose the perfect e-voucher e-gift for a Londoner

    Now that you have a bunch of options, all you have got to do is choose the most suitable one. And just send it across via email!

    To further help you make the right choice, here are some tips that will come in handy:

    1. London has a wealth of cultural and recreational activities to offer. But consider picking something that offers a unique experience or is hard to come by.
    2. If you know the recipient well, personalise the gift. Think about what they’d like and what would make them happy.
    3. People might appreciate a gift that allows them to explore a new part of the city. Or to indulge in something quintessentially local. Based on how willing the recipient is to travel/explore, consider the location before choosing a gift voucher.
    4. If you are not sure about the person’s preference, it’s always a safe option to give them a voucher for a shopping center or a flexible e-voucher that can be used in multiple places.
    5. Take into account the recipient’s schedule and availability. If you know they find it hard to take time off during the week, gift them something they can indulge in over the weekend, especially if it’s a colleague or staff member gift.

    With that, it is a wrap on the e-voucher gifting guide. Start e-gift shopping now!
