Gift Guide: Local Gift Vouchers


Every year I see social media posts asking the same question: Are there any local businesses that sell gifts?

Wouldn’t it just be easier if there was a list all in one place? Well – if you’re local to the Maidenhead or close surrounding area, we’ve got it covered. Face2Face Direct is bringing you a round up of local independent businesses with listings on our directory who offer gift vouchers – that make fabulous presents, for him, her, the kids or the whole family.

If you’re unsure of what to buy a friend or family member – a day out or experience can make a nice change. It could be for Christmas – or for any occasion all year round.
