customize & send in minutes - schedule a delivery date

To provide a fun & easy method for buying, sending ... and spending Purple Essentials' eGift cards, we use Square for the heavy lifting!

Customize the perfect, pampering gift - available in any denomination - pick from a number of card options - be creative and add your own personal message - choose the delivery date to their inbox!

From start to finish, eGift Cards can be ready to send in minutes.  Have them delivered immediately, or opt to have the eGift Card delivered on the day of your choice - Christmas morning, Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine's Day? 

While is still the preferred method for discovering and shopping our fresh & natural products, Square's eGift Card services allow a fast & secure option for sending self-care to those on your gift list!

Ready to redeem an eGift Card you have received? Please make your selection from the choices below based on the destination of the gift, not the origin:

For shipping destinations in BC, or in-store redemption
For shipping destinations in ON
For shipping destinations in the AB, QC, MB, NT, NU, SK or YK
For shipping destinations in the NB, NF, NS or PE
For shipping to the U.S. - SQUARE currently doesn't support this ☹

Why these individual sites for shopping online?

Great question ... until eGift Cards are handled completely in-house on our website, we rely on Square to provide the secure software (best in the business) responsible for processing eGift Card orders and collecting payments, including taxes (regular shopping activity is still processed as usual at Since Purple Essentials customers shop online from all over North America, the taxes we are required to charge and remit vary by province and country. Square's software does not currently allow for multiple tax rates in one store, so we have to create identical stores for each taxation area ... sounds like more work than it is :)

That said, until we move all of this onto our regular website it is important to choose the correct option above for shopping based on the destination of the parcel.  e.g. If you are shopping online in Alberta, but will be shipping the gift to an address in Ontario, Canada, then choose the shipping destinations in ON shopping option. 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us through our Contact Us service online at ... we're always available to help make your experience as enjoyable as possible!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at Purple Essentials!!
