5 Virtual Gifts You Can Send Online




While physical gifts are still very much the norm for special occasions like birthdays, monthsaries, and holidays. If you’re able to give a physical gift, it’s definitely a more personal and tactile experience. But sometimes this may not be possible for a number of reasons including long distance, last minute shopping, and of course this COVID-19 lockdown we’re in right now.

Here are some virtual gift ideas you can send online if giving a physical gift is not possible.

Netflix Electronic Gift Card

If the recepient of your gift is someone who enjoys binge watching loads of movies and TV shows, then this is a perfect gift. If they don’t have a Netflix subscription yet, they will surely be overwhelmed with joy. And even if they do have a subscription already, who wouldn’t mind getting a month or two that they don’t have to pay for?

You can buy Netflix Prepaid Codes in the Philippines via Codashop in denominations of PHP149, PHP550, PHP1,000, and PHP1,500. You can pay via Bayad Center, which luckily, has a mobile app.

eBooks and Audiobooks

Perhaps your giftee is more of a bookworm and you happen to know what material they’re into. Amazon’s Kindle and Audible are the best places to get eBooks and audiobooks, respectively.

Both platforms boast huge libraries of titles ranging a variety of genres. If you choose to go this route, you’re sure to not run out of potential options.

Steam Games

For the discerning gamer, receiving a good game as a gift on Steam is one of the best feelings in the world. I mean hey, it’s a free game that you didn’t have to spend your own money for.


As the sender, you can check out whatever games are on sale if you want a good deal, you can check which ones are new and trending, ones that are top selling, and more. But if you really want to get a good pick, you can check your receipient’s wishlist, as long as you’re friends on Steam. If you still can’t decide what to get, you can let them decide by gifting a digital Steam Wallet gift card instead.

Your Own Art/Creations

Sometimes, the best gift is something that’s crafted with love. This item is entirely up to you — whatever you can create that the person you’re giving it to will really like. You can do a custom digital greeting card, a nicely edited greeting or dedication video, or a new work of art like a digital painting, illustration, or even write them a song.

Of all the items on this list, this is definitely the most personal option, so if you’re giving a gift to someone really special, then this may your best course of action.

Good Ol’ Currency

However, sometimes, you may not have the energy or intention to give anything in particular. If you’re feeling that way but still want to give a gift that they will surely appreciate a lot, look no further than just sending them money.

This approach is the digital version of giving someone cash. A simple online bank transfer will do, but you can also take advantage of the digital wallets we have at our disposal nowadays, like Paypal, GCash, and Paymaya.

And that’s it for this list of virtual gifts you can send online. If giving a physical gift is out of reach or you simply prefer doing things digitally, then we hope this list helped you out. If you have any more items to add to this list, please don’t hesitate to share them in the comments below.
