I can't find an answer elsewhere (im probably just not looking properly!)
I have a sim card I was sent with a new phone but already had my own sim, my friend wants to join giffgaff so is there a way I can recommend him and just give him the spare sim card I already have instead of having to send him a new one in the post?

@pepsi91 if the sim was sent to give to a family member or friend its linked to your giffgaff account the friend who activates it gets 5 pounds free credit upon activating by minimum ten pounds top up voucher even an 02 ones works they then activate the sim here http://giffgaff.com/activate and click on activate by voucher
you also get 500 payback points updated next month around the 5th working day and paid out in December
Th sim was sent with a phone I bought through GG/ratesetter so I assumed it was sent for my use and wouldn't automatically give me and my friend the recommendation bonuses. Would it not have to be ordered for the purpose of giving out to get the bonuses?

Your understanding is correct. The sim that comes with a phone is identical to a sim you get from the giffgaff home page or a supermarket or argos -- it's not a member sim.
Only sims you order from the mgm page https://giffgaff.com/orders/mgm or are ordered via your mgm affiliate link qualify for referral bonuses and payback.
