Nearly all of our family lives several states away -- which makes sending Christmas presents to them a hassle, let alone the danger that the package will get lost or broken in transit.
That's what makes gift cards so good -- they're easy to send, and much appreciated. Even better, many companies are now offering bonus offers when gift cards are purchased. For example, Red Robin gives you a $5 bonus card for every $25 card you purchase. (Brickworks employees have gotten this, or gift cards from Qdoba for years -- and have loved it.)
Here's a fairly comprehensive list -- enjoy. Bear in mind, though, that some of these specials peter out early in December. You may not want to wait too long before acting on them. These make great gifts -- even if they're just for yourself!
