You get a gift card, you get a gift card, you get a gift card...
There are plenty of reasons for gifting this year and it’s a time to be happy with those that you love — no gifts are needed for that. However, a handful of local restaurants and businesses are offering deals on gift cards during the holiday season, gifting you an opportunity to enjoy what the city has to offer.
So, keep in mind, these aren’t all of the gift cards making their rounds through the town, but they’re a good start if you’re struggling with what to get your third cousin, twice removed for the holidays. Additionally, if gift cards aren’t your thing, Desert Provisions is spreading the holiday cheer with its Holiday Gift Sets.
Also, some of these are available for a limited time, so keep an eye out for when you need to make your purchase.
Here’s a list of gift cards with benefits
Fox Restaurant Concepts
