  • Denny's has a deal going that if you purchase a gift card at $25 you get a free $5 card for yourself. 


    Carrows has the same deal too. 


    At times a grocery store gift does like a good idea and you can't go wrong in purchasing food or anything else for that matter.

  • I like to give a Visa or Mastercard gift card in these kinds of situations. This way they can decide where to spend the $$ and split it amongst different places if that is their desire.

  • I would give a Visa or Mastercard gift card as well. You don't want to get stuck buying a gift card to a place they don't shop/eat at. If you do know their favorite place and want to get a specific card, then 25 for the food and 50 for the store. That's what I would do.

  • $20-$30. A lot of places are doing gift card promotions where if you buy a certain amount you get one free. I know Red Lobster is doing buy $100 get $20 free. You should look around and see who is offering deals like that before you buy :)
