What if you could choose your own gift? With the Esplanade Gift Card you can!
The Esplanade Gift Card means everyone can have the exact gift they want by offering them a wide selection of goods and services from more than 100 stores at the Esplanade shopping centre and in Rue Charlemagne.
Birthdays, anniversaries, births, weddings, parties… you name it, the lucky person receiving an Esplanade GIFT CARD can have all the fun of choosing the gift that’s right for them.
This is a prepaid card loaded with a single fixed amount that is stored on the card itself. The Esplanade GIFT CARD can be loaded with any amount of your choice between €5 and €500. You don’t have to spend the full amount in one go and you can use the amount loaded on the card for several purchases in different stores.
You will find full details of the terms and conditions for the Esplanade GIFT CARD at www.getmybalance.com by entering your card number.
The Esplanade GIFT CARD operates with a magnetic strip, so there is no need to enter a PIN code – your signature is enough.
Once activated, the card is valid for 12 months.
There is also a choice of packaging available to wrap the gift card: envelope, gift box or gift bag.
You will obtain all the details you need about the Esplanade GIFT CARD from the information desk.

This recently redesigned area is located at the upper level of the shopping centre, next to the washrooms. It is divided into two zones:
The nursing corner - a space with 3 armchairs with armrests, for mothers who wish to nurse their babies in privacy. The space also has a changing table.
A space for changing your baby - o 2 changing tables with baby wipes
o A small toilet for children under 120 cm
o Diapers can also be provided if you have forgotten to bring one. Please see the staff member on duty at the washrooms.
For unforeseen circumstances, or simply because you had no room for it or didn’t feel like bringing it along, L’esplanade simplifies shopping with children by lending you a pushchair (two of which recline fully, for infants).
When you arrive at L’esplanade, remember to pick up one of these bracelets at the Info desk. You can note the child’s name and your mobile phone number on it. If your child should stray from your sight among the displays, we will be sure to find him or her, and the bracelet will make it easy for our security service to contact you and return your child as quickly as possible.
Situated at the lower level of the shopping centre, under the central staircase, this “kitchen’” space is reserved for parents wishing to feed their young children. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave oven, a bottle warmer, running water and high chairs. The hostess has a stock of small plastic spoons in case you have forgotten to bring one.
All 30 shops along Rue Charlemagne are also part of L’esplanade, and offer you an outdoor shopping experience at the heart of the pedestrianised city, where your children will be in safety. If it’s raining, don’t hesitate to borrow an umbrella to visit the shops. The service means you don’t have to carry around an umbrella unnecessarily, but have one to hand when needed.
Any item lost by our customers at the shopping centre or in the shops belonging to L’esplanade are turned in at the Info desk. If you have lost something, you can report it to the Info desk, leave a description of the item and your contact details, and they will contact you if it has been found. Lost items are kept for 3 months, after which they are donated to a charity.
Has your mobile phone battery run down? Head on over to the Info desk. The hostess will provide you with a universal charger so you can recharge the phone. If we are unable to provide one that fits your mobile phone, you can always use the telephone at the Info desk to make an urgent call.
Wi-Fi is available free of charge throughout the Esplanade shopping centre.
This is the nerve centre of the majority of our services.
