Giving walks as gifts - iWalk Cornwall

Giving walks as gifts

It's possible to buy Apple/Google gift cards which can used by the recipient for walks from the iWalk Cornwall app. This allows a free choice from 269 walks in Cornwall so (unlike a walk book) there's no worry about giving walks they've already done or directions being out of date by the time they come to do them. You also have the option of doing the whole thing electronically to save both time and waste.

1. (Apple) iPhone or Android phone?

Find out what kind of phone the person you are giving to has. You need to know which one in order to know whether to buy an Apple or a Google gift card.

2. Buy a gift card or gift code

You can either buy a physical gift card (e.g. from a supermarket) or you can buy online and have it sent electronically as a code by email (which can include a personal message). The latter is useful for last-minute gifts and also allows an exact amount (including pence) to be entered to correspond to an exact number of walks without any wasted leftover credit.

If the person you are giving to has an iPhone, either:

If the person you are giving to has an Android phone, either:

  • Buy a "Google Play" gift card from a supermarket
  • Buy an electronic version online from Amazon and optionally set a date when the email is sent.

3. Print out or email the iWalk Cornwall sheet to go with it

We've made a PDF explaining how to redeem the code and use it for walks. download it here.

It's a plain-and-simple black-and-white single sheet of A4 so if you want to print it to include as part of a gift, it doesn't use up all your ink or require a degree in printer technology/origami.

If you use Gmail, you can also schedule this ahead-of-time to be sent by email on the day (use the dropdown arrow on the right of the send button, or "⋮" in the mobile version, to select "scheduled send").
