Gift certificate purchases for Chemainus businesses can be made from the comfort of home

A personalized touch provided for Christmas with specific details

The Chemainus Business Improvement Association is literally thinking outside the box this holiday season with some town-wide gift certificates.

Accepted at more than 60 local businesses, the gift certificates can be purchased for whichever business you like without ever leaving home. For those not sure about the perfect gift or wanting to avoid crowds, this is the ideal way to shop.

Shop online by using a bonded secure online store from the comfort of your laptop or device. Not only can you select the store you wish to purchase a gift card from, but you can also select the theme like Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas, and the amount down to the dollar you wish to purchase.

“You can also personalize this with a message of your own,” noted Krystal Adams, executive director for the CBIA. “They are offering local pick-up, delivery, postage and even an email generated certificate.”

Each one has a randomized code that is checked by each business owner along with other advancements in the gift certificate itself allowing this to be easy and secure.

“For many people in our community right now it is hard to get out of the house and for others because of the pandemic there is some reservations about going into public spaces,” added Adams. “We wanted to help with all of those things and this seemed like the best way to do that.

“And beside the convenience, the cards are really beautiful, giving a personalized touch to Christmas as each card is professionally printed with your specific details.”

It doesn’t matter whether people are starting out, in the middle or completing holiday shopping, the certificates are nice additions for those on your gift list and can be delivered or sent directly to someone’s door.

To purchase online, go to www.chemainusgifts.ca, the secure gift card site, or visit www.shopchemainus.ca for more information.
