Christmas is ON…today Deliveroo announces the launch of its eagerly anticipated gift card just in time for the last minute Secret Santa and stocking filler gift rush. And the bonus… you don’t even have to wrap it. RESULT!
Available from today- following a surge in demand from customers, the gift card which can be purchased online and via the app and is sent in an e-gift card format, can be gifted instantly to the intended recipient in denominations of £10. So even if you leave your gift until the special day, there’s still time to buy, send and receive.
An ideal present for food and drink lovers, the gift card brings together some of the UKs best food producers, restaurants and supermarkets to re-connect foodies with their favourite restaurants or encourage them to try something new with the bill covered by somebody else.

And forget celebrity gold cards and VIPs, Deliveroo will be gifting its first ever fully loaded gift card to Taydoll from Essex who tweeted the brand pleading with them to launch a gift card pre-Christmas. “I feel like a celebrity or an influencer. So happy to be the first to receive this and obviously loving that Deliveroo has launched a gift card finally. Although, with my new found fame now all my friends and family know what they’re getting for Christmas!!”
Arabella Jenkins from Deliveroo said: “For many people the food they consume at Christmas is one of the main things they look forward to – and this year there are so many festive favourites from Pret’s legendary Christmas sandwich to Burger King’s Festive BBQ King and Pizza Hut’s Christmas Pizza. In a time where many people are unable to see their families and in what has been a catastrophic year for businesses in the hospitality industry, we want to encourage people to give the gift of food and drink. It’s a special treat for those receiving the gift, but also helps to continue to support our incredible restaurant partners across the festive period and beyond, because remember, a gift card isn’t just for Christmas! It’s the tastiest gift at any time of year.”
Deliveroo hopes the card encourages people to give the gift of food and drink this year, enabling people to stay at home to enjoy a delicious meal and special tipple, all the while supporting their favourite chains and small independent restaurants local to them.
