Gifts to celebrate the end of lockdown!

Farewell bread baking, binge watching and virtual meetups and hello outside world! It’s been a tough year all round and never has there been a better time to get back out there, shout someone a celebratory gift card and support local business (at a safe social distance, of course!). 

Here are our top 5 Christmas gift cards to celebrate the end of lockdown. 

  1. This round's on me!

Who needs a drink?! Finally we can hit the pubs and bars, enjoy a mid-week parmi and toast the festive season with a bottle of bubbles and friends. The Pub & Bar Gift Card is a gift you can be sure won’t go to waste, particularly when it can be used at any pub or bar that accepts eftpos. Better yet, it’s a great way to help support the local hospitality industry get back on its feet.

  1. Time to take care of those eyebrows… 

Needless to say we could all use some pampering, not to mention some long-overdue beauty maintenance! Spoil someone with a massage, a facial, a holiday season tan or even a haircut. The Pamper Gift Card can be used at all salons, day spas and beauty clinics that accept eftpos so once again, you can be sure this is a Christmas gift card that will be used and appreciated.

  1. Enough streaming already: Support the big screen

Who could have predicted that going to the cinema would become such a novelty? With movie theatres re-opening and COVID-19 Safety Plans firmly in place, a Cinema Gift Card is a great way to help support the entertainment industry  not to mention a super easy gift idea. Choose any gift card value you like, preferably with enough post-ticket balance to shout your friend a choc top!

  1. A gift for the great outdoors

Nothing says “bye bye lockdown” like an outdoor adventure. With participating retailers such as Camping World, Adidas and Surf Dive ‘n Ski, the Active Gift Card is all about helping people get back out there and enjoy the great outdoors. Or simply help your loved one finally replace that activewear they've been wearing non-stop all year!

  1. There is such thing as a free lunch!

There’s also a free breakfast, dinner or coffee and cake – the choices are endless when you give someone a Restaurant Gift Card that can be used at any restaurant or cafe that accepts eftpos. And let’s be honest, we could all use a restaurant-quality meal that doesn’t arrive by motorbike this year... Importantly, as with the Pub and Bar Gift Card, Cinema Gift Card and Pamper Gift Cards, it's a great way to give to a loved one as well as give back to local businesses who are doing it tough.
