Wight Gift Card

The Island’s dedicated gift card

The Wight Gift Card is a gift card programme that champions buying local. WightFibre are the main sponsor and they are delighted to join forces with the Isle of Wight Council to support local businesses and help Islanders keep their spend on the Island.

The card works like a local currency, with each gift card a pre-paid Mastercard that can be redeemed at registered businesses on the Isle of Wight, both in-store and online.

Registered businesses are listed and mapped on wightgiftcard.co.uk which customers can explore and purchase a card value up to £500.
