For birthdays, holidays, or just to say “thank you”, a gift certificate is a time honored, and well-received gift. Gift certificates are ways which we can show our appreciation for one another for the things they’ve done for us, or perhaps to give them the opportunity to pick out something for themselves. Both businesses and customers benefit tremdously from gift certificates. The business gains new customers and added profit, while the customer enjoys shopping for something only they know they want.
How to Formulate the Right Gift Certificate Wording
When it comes to formulating the correct wording for composing a gift certificate, know that it’s a relatively simple task. All you need do is include the essentials and you’re good to go! The essential elements of a gift certificate are:
- Amount or purpose for the gift certificate
- The expiration date
- Full name of recipient
- For retail: Number each gift certificate to eliminate fraud
The above items are essential. However, you may add other items if you wish, such as:
- Business logo and name
- Business contact information
- Personal message
- Additional, general information regarding any store promotion, sale items, directions to their establishment, and so on.
That’s it! You see, there’s not much that goes into a gift certificate, so what are you waiting for? Take a look at our available gift certificate templates, and start your’s today!
