Gift Certificates are purchased just like any other item in our store. You can pay for them using the stores standard payment method(s). Once purchased the value of the Gift Certificate will be added to your own personal Gift Certificate Account. If you have funds in your Gift Certificate Account, you will notice that the amount now shows in the Shopping Cart box, our system will then send the Gift Certificate to the person you nominated via email.
To send a Gift Certificate you need to go to our Gift Certificate Page. You can find the link to this page in the main menu or in the left hand column of each page. When you send a Gift Certificate, you need to specify the following. The name of the person (Recipient) you are sending the Gift Certificate to.

If you have funds in your Gift Certificate Account, you can use those funds to purchase other items in our store. At the checkout stage, an extra box will appear. Enter the amount to apply from the funds in your Gift Certificate Account. Please note, you will still have to select another payment method if there is not enough in your Gift Certificate Account to cover the cost of your purchase. If you have more funds in your Gift Certificate Account than the total cost of your purchase the balance will be left in your Gift Certificate Account for the future.
If you receive a Gift Certificate by email it will contain details of who sent you the Gift Certificate, along with possibly a short message from them.
