Giving the gift of Premium Bonds

Ever been at a loss for what to buy a child for a special day? Give the gift that keeps on giving.

Why Premium Bonds?

Premium Bonds make a great gift for any occasion, and can also help kick start a healthy savings habit. Buy from just £25.

With the chance to win cash prizes ranging from £25 to £1 million every month, a boost to their savings is a gift they can enjoy again and again.

How does it work?

Anyone can buy Premium Bonds for a child under 16. The child might already have some Premium Bonds, and that’s fine, they can hold up to £50,000 worth.

If you’re not the parent/guardian of the child, you’ll need to let them know before buying Premium Bonds as we’ll contact them directly for things like providing evidence of identity and address.

If you haven’t already registered with us, we'll set you up to use our online and phone service as part of your application.

Make giving the gift of Premium Bonds extra special and get a free gift card with your own personal message when buying for someone else’s child – you can choose to receive it by post or electronically when you apply.

When you apply for someone else’s child:

  • Make sure the parent or guardian is happy to look after the investment for the child, and agrees to you giving us their details
  • Before we can accept your application, we’ll need to check and confirm the identity and address of everyone on the application
  • Please let the parent or guardian know that we might be in touch to ask for evidence of identity documents
