How to Buy an Etsy Gift Card

Give someone the gift of something special with an Etsy gift card. An Etsy gift card works like cash on Etsy.com.

To buy an Etsy gift card:

  1. Sign in to Etsy.com.
  2. Click Gift cards at the bottom of any page.
  3. Fill out the information requested, including your name, the recipient's name, and the amount you want to gift. Gift cards are available for $25, $50, $100, and $250 USD.
  4. Choose a delivery method:
  • Emailed to recipient: The recipient receives the gift card in their email inbox. Custom designs are only available for this option. The recipient receives the card as soon as you check out.
  • Printable (emailed to you): You receive the gift card in your email inbox. You can print the gift card and give it to the recipient whenever you want! 
  1. Add the email address you want to send the card to.
  2. Click Add to basket.
  3. When you’re ready to checkout, click Proceed to checkout and complete your purchase.

You can’t purchase an Etsy Gift Card and check out from another shop in the same transaction. If you have other items in your basket, you can purchase them in a separate transaction.

You must have an Etsy account to purchase an Etsy Gift Card. Learn how to create an Etsy account.

When you purchase a gift card, follow these guidelines:

  • The "To" or "From" field must be no more than 25 characters in length
  • The message to the recipient must be no more than 5 lines in length
  • There can’t be any special characters or emojis in the text
