Book Tokens and Gift Cards

We now also stock Foyles Gift Cards in denominations from £5 to £250. These make the perfect gift for any book-lover, whether they're after a bestseller, an old favourite or an undiscovered gem. Or why not treat yourself by filling up a card so that, no matter the state of your finances, you always have funds on hand to secure a great read? We also stock National Book Tokens, available in denominations from £1 to £100.

Currently neither our Gift Cards or National Book Tokens can be redeemed via websites but we hope to have the facility to use our own Gift Cards on this website soon.

To ensure secure delivery of these items, which are effectively cash to the recipient, we are obliged to send them via a trackable postal service, the maximum cost for which is £7.00 for a courier within the UK. Please contact Foyles Customer Services for an exact cost in advance of the order.

Gift Lists

Having a book list is a great alternative to standard gift lists and, with over two hundred thousand titles at our Charing Cross branch and the facility to order any book in print in the UK and many from the USA, there is a gift for everyone. Whether you want a list for a wedding, Bar Mitzvah or if you’re just moving house, our team will be happy to help you compile your dream library.
