    • 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.

  • 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
