Launching on 12 November, the prizes will be provided by the week’s sponsors who include: Debenhams, Halfords, H. Samuel, National Garden Gift Vouchers, Theatre Tokens and Wickes.

Other activity planned to support Gift Card and Voucher Week includes competitions in lifestyle magazines and websites, a TV competition, 50 regional newspaper competitions and 100 radio competitions.
