Food is a great way to say thank you. Whether you’re gifting a sweet treat, a trip to a gourmet grocer or a lunch or dinner out, there’s something a bit luxurious about food gifts.
Perhaps because in the case of a gift to a gourmet grocer or a lunch or dinner at a restaurant, you are removing the worry over “what to eat” for at least one meal in a day. In the case of a sweet treat, you’re giving someone the opportunity to be a bit indulgent.
Say thank you with food! When you shop with Giftbar, you’re also giving a gift that helps support locally sourced food and local businesses. Those things are important to you and your community.
Instead of giving a gift basket or food of the month club type thank you gift from an online retailer, choose local. Give a Giftbar gift card to an area merchant to help your community. Here’s why:
- Helps keep your community unique.
- You are helping local businesses grow and prosper.
- In the case of local food, it tastes better and is better for you.
- You’ll find the customer service tends to be better.
- Your money stays in your community and helps boost the local economy.
For some fantastic local food and restaurant ideas, here are a few suggestions:
Feast Restaurant (Chicago, IL)
To say thank you with the gift of brunch, lunch or dinner, give a gift card to Chicago’s Feast Restaurant. The menu here changes seasonally and can best be described as eclectic.
