Never be stuck for a gift idea again as the Leicester Gift Card is now available to buy.

What’s more, to celebrate our partnership with BID Leicester we’ve got a £75 card to give away to one of you lucky Cool As Leicester readers!

The gift card can be purchased at any value between £5 and £500 and can be spent in more than 100 city centre businesses. Outlets participating in the scheme include high street chains, independent shops, restaurants, pubs, cinemas and hotels. If you’ve ever been stuck deciding which voucher to buy, this is your answer!

Whether you want to treat yourself to coffee and fresh cheese scones from Leicester Coffee House, or if you’ve had your eye on a new pair of trainers from WellGosh, the card will have you covered.

The Leicester Gift Card works just like any other shop gift card. Simply choose the amount you wish to load on the card and the card can then be given as a present to colleagues, friends, or family members and redeemed across the city. The credit on the card is not limited to one location and can be redeemed at any of the participating businesses in the BID Leicester area. Additionally, the total card value can be spent in multiple transactions at multiple businesses, giving customers the gift of choice.
