I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Darden. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating
Some of my favorite holiday memories include sitting around a table with my family around Christmastime. I enjoy sharing the season with family and friends and exchanging conversation over a delicious meal. After dinner cleanup, we then get out the games and play, or help the kids play with the gifts that they receive.
One of my favorite gifts to give during the holiday season are gift cards. Being a mom, I know the importance of being able to go out and share a nice meal with your spouse or your whole family. My husband and I were just talking and realized that we haven’t been out on a date for a nice meal and a movie for almost 3 years! I’d say we are long overdue!
We are going to be enjoying our Darden Gift Card to go out for a nice meal this winter.
Something I love about the Darden website is that you can purchase a card to use individually at so many great restaurants, or allow the recipient to choose which one they want to go to! One of my favorite restaurants of all time is Red Lobster. My husband enjoys going there when the Endless Seafood promotion is going on and I really enjoy their biscuits. They are melt in your mouth good. We have so many great memories of going to Red Lobster as a family and can’t wait to go again!
The Darden Gift Card also covers another restaurant that I have enjoyed visiting since High School – Olive Garden. Yes, there is a story behind this! Each year we went on a field trip for school right around the holidays and would always stop by the Olive Garden. That is where my love of their salad and breadsticks first began! I crave those breadsticks still! Thank goodness we have an Olive Garden close to home.
Longhorn Steakhouse is also a popular restaurant that is included on the Darden gift card list. I’ve never eaten at the Longhorn Steakhouse because ours was closed here in town, but I hope to visit the next time we are in a town that has one1
For a limited time during this holiday season, you can earn a $5 bonus coupon for every $25 gift card you purchase at Oliver Garden, Red Lobster, or Longhorn Steakhouse restaurants. Whether you like to stay in for the holidays, or dine out, sitting around the table with friends and family are some of the best memories you can make!
From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy Holidays!
