My brother was spending a fortune on train fares to his girlfriend’s home town and didn’t ever get round to buying a network rail card. So I bought him one for his birthday – he now gets a third off his off-peak fares. This is actually a really good gift because it really saves you money and up to 4 people travelling with you also get the discount. Costs about £30 – just go to a ticket office inb a station
This is really good for a newborn – it’s symbolic of investing in their future; it’s also very secure and mosomething they may even get a windfall from. You can also buy this instantly, so makes a really good last minute gift.
