The cards come in four different designs and can be used to shop online, through mail order or over the telephone, wherever Visa is accepted.
Cards are activated online and the recipient is issued with a unique number and three-digit security code, which are entered at the check-out.
The cash value on the cards is backed by Alliance & Leicester.
