Gift vouchers for learning a new language are on lots of Christmas lists for the 2021 festive season.

The popularity of gifting language soared last year. The learning bug bit the nation as lockdowns inspired a renewed passion for personal development.

In addition, we’re all on the look- out for quirkier and more meaningful things to fill the Christmas stockings of our loved ones. Giving the gift of learning a new language keeps getting more and more popular.

Go Skills’ Brad Zomick explains, Every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions, hoping to spark positive change. The recurring themes each year include… learning new things for personal and professional development.”

And gift vouchers for learning a new language have benefits on multiple levels. They’re contemporary gifts. Yet they’re reliably crowd pleasing, too.

Gift Vouchers for Learning a New Language are Safe Bets

Satisfying our thirst for knowledge can certainly be more gratifying than hankies, socks and tins of mints. To this end, gift vouchers have long been reliable alternatives to those stodgy unwanted gifts.

But it seems like traditional retail gift vouchers might be losing their seasonal sparkle.

The Manchester Evening News has dug deeper in to research by Which? It revealed that gift vouchers aren’t all we want for Christmas and too often end up unloved and unused –

‘“The most common reasons respondents gave for not spending a gift card were not getting around to using it (42%) and not finding anything they wanted to spend it on (28%).”’

Perhaps we’ve got complacent with traditional retail gift vouchers. Or perhaps we’re more interested in a different kind of experiential gifting that combines personal development and pleasure.
