In 2000, after a frantic round trip across the city to buy a voucher for Christmas, entrepreneur Michael Dawson came up with the idea to create a gift voucher that was more convenient to purchase. Two years later, after much hard work and preparation, The Gift Voucher Shop officially launched in Ireland. The product at the time was branded paper gift vouchers that could be spent in 500 retailers and were sold through 1,000s of Post Offices Nationwide, online and through a corporate sales team.
Today, paper gift vouchers are a thing of the past as we at GVS are the creators of the market-leading multi-store One4all Gift Card, which is available in physical and digital gift card offerings. The retailer portfolio has expanded to over 60,000 leading stores across retail, services and online in Ireland and the UK, ensuring that with a One4all Gift Card, customers have the ultimate choice.
