Default Gift vouchers in UK pounds

Does anyone know if it possible to buy UK gift vouchers in Australia. We would like to send them to the UK from here.

Cheers

You could probably get a currency card loaded with GBP that would be able to be spent anywhere.

If you want vouchers from a particular UK shop (eg Marks and Sparks, Harrods, 100s of others) you can usually buy them on line through PayPal and get them sent directly to the UK recipient

Good idea but they are for presents for kids and either the minimum or the fee makes them too expensive.

Don't know then - google says you can buy online for delivery direct in the UK, and add personal messages. Otherwise, do you know anyone in the UK who can send them over to you to send back again? Or do you know anyone visiting the UK who could get some for you?

I just buy online and depending on who,it's for, either get it mailed direct to them or sent by email. You,could,do that then send the actual Christmas/birthday card from here x

Are you using Australian Visa/Mastercard to buy these UK vouchers?

We've kept a UK bank account for such things and just buy online from the UK websites and get them delivered, but then we're still buying our DVDs and books from the UK...
