Do Gift Cards Make Good Holiday Presents?

If they’re from Zarda – YES!

Holiday shopping can be stressful – especially if you’re so busy that you end up shopping last minute. If you’re having trouble finding something for a loved one, don’t worry! We have the perfect solution: Zarda gift cards!

Gift cards don’t have to be an impersonal bummer. In fact, there are several reasons a Zarda gift card is just the ticket this holiday season!

Reasons to Buy Gift Cards This Holiday Season

  1. Perfect Add-On Gift. Zarda gift cards add the final touch to any Christmas present. Slip it into a brand new toolbox or a new pair of boots! Tuck that gift card inside a new thermos or slide it into the pocket of a new sweater. For extra fun, hang it with ribbon like an ornament from the Christmas tree! Gift cards also make perfect stocking stuffers!
  2. Shopping Solution. Let’s be honest: some family members are harder to shop for than others. Instead, give your friends and family something you know they’ll enjoy – Kansas City barbecue! Zarda gift cars are a convenient and useful substitute for these loved ones! Gift college students a gift card for a meal when money is tight, or treat Grandpa to a special dinner from his favorite restaurant – Zarda!
  3. Easy to Mail. Support local Zarda barbecue and include gift cards in a few Christmas cards this year. Friends and family who live in the area will love discovering a Zarda gift card in their mail! Plus, a gift card is much easier and cheaper to mail than a holiday gift! Physical gift cards can be used in stores or for online orders, but Zarda also offers e-gift cards that can be emailed for your convenience.
  4. Hassle Free. Avoid giving an unwanted gift that your family member or friend will have to go to the trouble of returning or exchanging. Maybe that sweater is the wrong color for them or the wrong size; maybe they got two of the same item. Gift cards let the recipient enjoy the gift whenever they want – they could stop buy Zarda for a midweek pick-me-up or they could have an easy Sunday dinner; the choice is theirs. Make the holidays extra special this year with gift cards from everyone’s favorite local barbecue spot – Zarda!
