There are several restaurants that are offering gift card deals this holiday season. I have compiled a list of some of these places.  These are awesome deals. Make sure to get them while they last and read all of the fine print to make sure of when deals can be redeemed, as well as when they expire.  They all have different rules, but are truly a great deal if you want to be able to shop for gifts and get a little something back for yourself after the holidays are over.
