How do I enable a personal hotspot so that I can connect my laptop to the hotspot? When I try 'settings -> general -> mobile data-> set up personal hotspot' it refers me to a website that is utterly useless. Plz help

This is incorrect. You can use the hotspot on many other phones, such as Android and Windows.  

 

It is the phone's software that controls whether the hotspot can be enabled and it is not dependent on giffgaff.

I'm sorry to inform you that the hotspot can't be enabled on the iPhone using giffgaff unless you jailbreak it.

Apple have put restrictions on their devices that only allow the hotspot to be enabled on certain networks (for a fee).
