Here at fbo, we understand how difficult it is for many people to find the perfect gift for their friends and loved ones when it comes to Christmas, birthdays, and special occasions.

This is why we offer our customers the option of buying a gift card.

Our gift cards can be purchased from any one of our eight outlets (Kempton Park, Joburg CBD, Randburg Square, Lakeside Mall, Springs, Church Square, Mall@Reed and Atterbury Value Mart or on our online shopping portal.

Why should I give a gift card this Christmas?

Shopping for the perfect gift for friends and family can be tricky, no matter how close you are to them and regardless of how well you know them.

We've all received a gift that we either don't like or will never use. We end up feeling guilty that a loved one has spent their well-earned money on something that is all but useless!

We think that a gift card is a perfect present for anyone!

While some feel that a gift card means a lack of effort or a display of laziness, we beg to differ. A gift card allows the recipient to choose exactly what it is that they want, and it is guaranteed to be well-received.

The gift card can be spent at any of our Gauteng outlets or online, whatever your loved one prefers. And if the recipient takes advantage of our many sales and specials, they will be able to get even more out of their gift card!

Whether they want to buy a pair of designer skinny jeans, some swanky new sneakers, a pretty summer dress, or some beautiful accessories, they will be spoilt for choice at fbo!
