When the holiday season comes I always look forward to the great family meals and all the shopping and eating out. Each year my husband and I have made it a tradition to visit the mall we would hang out at when we were young and get lots of our Christmas shopping done and enjoy a meal reminiscing on when we first met and how much things have changed over the past 11 years. It’s a tradition of ours that I look forward to each year! So many memories can be made over a good meal and we’re very lucky to have our pick of hundreds of restaurants all very nearby, including the Darden family of restaurants. All within 15 minutes of us we have an Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse and a Red Lobster (mmm, cheesy biscuits!). Olive Garden and Red Lobster are two of my favorites and actually we did our gender reveal between the three of us over dinner at the Olive Garden!
Mealtime memories tend to stick with you and that’s why I think that sitting down with the family to enjoy them is so important. We always have a great time when we eat out at Darden restaurants, the service is wonderful and it’s always a real treat with all the delicious meals that are also budget friendly for us.
Giving a gift card to a restaurant is a perfect gift because everyone likes to eat out and enjoy time with their friends and family. Plus, a night off from cooking is ALWAYS nice!
This holiday season, for every $25 gift card you purchase at Olive Garden, Red Lobster or LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants you’ll recieve a $5 bonus coupon! Visit the Darden Gift Card website for more information and to purchase your gift cards.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Darden. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating
