Restaurant Holiday Gift Card Guide

According to research from the National Restaurant Association in 2011, 26 percent of Americans planned to give a restaurant gift card as a holiday gift, and 59 percent said they would like to receive a restaurant gift card.

A restaurant gift card allows the recipient to enjoy a nice dinner without worrying about picking up the tab. This is part of a greater trend of interest in experience based gifts rather than giving goods.
