Introducing e-gift cards: employee gifts for the digitally-minded

Once upon a time, it was incredibly exciting to get a cheque in a Christmas card. You could take it to the bank, pop it into your 6% interest bank account and, in just 3 working days, be on your way to the shops for a Mr Frosty machine.

But times have a changed a little, and waiting that long isn’t as fashionable. Which is why, thanks to popular demand, we’ve introduced Asda for Business e-gift cards

Delivered instantly via email, they’re perfect for your last minute Christmas gifts. While they’re ideal for the digital generation, you can also use them in store like our traditional Asda for Business gift cards. It’s win-win.

In fact, they suit some people better. Everybody knows someone with incredible purse/wallet/handbag organisation skills. Loyalty cards here, coffee punchcards there, breakdown cover card –but that’s not most of us. Especially in this office. We do, however, always have our phones on us to access our emails from anywhere, including Asda for Business e-gift card codes.

So you’ve got the convenience of taking a little pressure off those full-to-bursting pockets —and you don’t run the risk of a till-queue facepalm moment when you realise that your card is on the kitchen counter.

Christmas trees are green. Sprouts are green. Why not make your last minute Christmas gifts green too?

 As much as our customers love having a physical item to pop into a ‘hilarious’ Christmas card, we understand that some people like to minimise waste wherever possible. We totally agree.

Asda for Business e-gift cards arrive via email, and don’t even need to be printed. It’s as stripped-back as it gets. If your business has a strong focus on doing things ecologically, they’re definitely the choice for you.

It’s never too late to get that gift

Here are last minute Christmas gifts, and then there’s the midnight panic of realising that the Christmas post schedule means nothing will arrive in time!

Don’t worry. We’ve got you. Because our e-gift cards are delivered instantly via email, no colleague needs to be forgotten. Even if you’re feeling sluggish after a barrage of mince pies, mulled wine and a double album of festive hits, you can save the day and order an e-gift card in minutes.

Nobody gets left out, and everybody gets to choose the gift they really want.

Guaranteed to get it right

As much as we all try to be thoughtful, we don’t always have the time to find out if someone already has that box set, those headphones, or that lovely scarf. When you choose an Asda for Business e-gift card, you’re letting your happy recipients get the things they actually want.

We know that some of you can’t resist giving a little recommendation though. So why not send a couple of links to things you know they’d like? Or, better still, set up a little Pinterest board with a whole bunch of things that you think they’ll love.

A little festive flexibility

The quick turnaround for Asda for Business e-gift cards isn’t just a miracle for our more forgetful moments. They’re an employee gift that lets you respond to unpredictable things with an agility that would make Santa’s cat jealous.

Got new employees starting and you don’t want them to be left out? No problem. Has a client contact being an absolute saint in the days before Christmas? An e-gift card to cover a bottle of bubbly can be saying ‘Thank you’ to their inbox in no time.

If every Christmas went to plan, your life would be much easier. But it’s the road bumps, obstacles and curveballs that keep us on our toes. Thankfully, the flexibility of e-gift cards will keep you in everyone’s good books too.
