Things You Need to Know
We founded Gift it Forward Washington with one goal in mind: make it easy for residents and visitors to shop and buy gift certificates from local merchants. To order a gift certificate please visit the shop and select the merchant you'd like to purchase from and the dollar amount you'd like to give and add it to your cart. When you are ready to check-out, you can pay for all gift certificates using your credit card. Once payment is processed gift certificates will be emailed to the recipient you designate.
