If you don’t fancy battling through the frantic last minute shoppers over the next few days, then try giving a gift that your loved ones can receive virtually. There are lots of options out there from different retailers and brands, but as we assume 99.999% of the nation are music lovers, then you can’t go wrong with a gift card from the likes of Spotify, fairshare music or iTunes. Plus if you’re really struggling on Christmas Eve (or even Christmas morning) they’re so so easy to buy.
With Spotify’s e-cards you can give your loved ones the gift of premium listening, meaning no ads, access to everything on your mobile and exclusive features from the Spotify team.
You can choose to give premium access for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 12 months and we can guarantee that if someone’s been using Spotify’s free services for some time, they’ll really value the chance to be bumped up to premium!

fairshare music is a music library with a conscience, it’s got more than 16 million tracks in its vaults from just 79p and for every download that’s purchased half of the profit will go to a charity of your choice.
You can easily and instantly send a gift card virtually to any recipient and then they can use that to buy anything in the store.
You could also gift songs, albums or playlists too or even create a quick wish-list so other people know what to buy for you.

Earlier in the week we showed you how to give an app as a gift this Christmas and that process works for music too.
However, if you’d prefer to let the person you’re buying for choose what they want, then buy a gift certificate that can be emailed out to them and used whenever they please.
All you need to do is fill out a simple form and choose whether you want to give a gift certificate of anywhere from £5 to £30.
