Here's a great idea for the vinyl collector in you life: record tokens. Brought to you by Record Store Day and National Book Tokens, these new offerings, just in time for Christmas 2021, are gift cards in denominations of £25 and £50 which can be bought or redeemed at independent record shops both in-store and online. 

The Record Token will be activated by Record Store Day and posted to the address of your choice.

And of course, they're not just for Christmas! These tokens are a top shout for the devoted vinyl collector in your life as well as fledgling curators yet to experience a good crate rummage or buying their first LP.
