What is the difference between a gift card and a gift voucher?

Gift Cards
Gift cards are credit card sized cards which can be loaded or topped up with values of between £1 and £500, to spend with M&S online or in store.  They are valid for 24 months from the last transaction ('transactions' include balance enquiries).  They can be ordered to be sent directly to your recipient as a gift.
Gift cards can be used as part or full payment online using the 16 digit card number and 5 digit pin, or in store using the bar code.

Gift Vouchers
Gift vouchers are paper vouchers in Sterling denominations of £1, £5, £10 and £25 and can only be used in store using the bar code.
