19 Gift Voucher Ideas Because Letting Someone Choose Their Own Gift Is Good Actually

At PEDESTRIAN.TV, we independently choose and write about stuff we love and think you’ll froth too. We have affiliate partnerships so we might get a bit of money from any purchase you make based on our recs, cool? Cool. FYI – prices are accurate and items in stock at the time of posting.

While receiving an actual present on Christmas is great (unwrapping big gifts is always fun), there’s something so liberating about receiving a gift voucher.

You’re telling me I can go and buy that specific pair of Crocs I really want? Or a set of earrings that I’ve had my eyes on for months? Yes please.

Also, as a gift voucher lover, I’m doing the gift giver a favour. You can pick a specific amount and get a voucher for a store that you know I like — no need to go to window shopping at Westfield for hours when you can literally go online and type ‘THE ICONIC‘ into your browser. You’re so welcome.

That being said, here’s our list of some of the best gift voucher ideas we’ve found in case you’re stuck — as well as some spending suggestions for the lucky giftee.

Books are always a fantastic gift, but if you don’t know what books your recipient likes to read, getting them a gift voucher for Booktopia is a great alternative.
