Gift cards are one of my favorite gifts to give and receive. They are simple, can be customized to fit any person’s interests and I can avoid using my pathetic wrapping skills! Many people share my love of gift cards, as gift card gifts have been rapidly increasing each year. So much so that there is now a Gift Card Weekend!

Gift Card Weekend is a once-a-year event where participating retail partners give featured offers for gift cards purchased during the holiday season and redeemed from Jan 4-6th, 2013!

Free burgers, free desserts, free appetizers, tons of discounts and MUCH more for one full weekend!

photo(14)You can not only buy gift cards on the Gift Card Weekend site, but you can present them in the coolest ways using their video gift card holder and audio holder as well. Record your own voice and customize your own card!

Plus right now on the Gift Card Weekend website, you can send a FREE personalized video from Santa (no purchase necessary)! I know my daughters would LOVE that!

Cool gift cards PLUS a full weekend of savings? Sounds like my kind of fun! Speaking of gift cards, we’ve got a FAB gift card prize package to give away to one lucky reader!

  295. My husband and I could go on a date and only have to pay the babysitter. Then I’d get myself a massage to relieve the stress of raising four boys!

    What a blessing this would be! The Applebees gift card would be a great start to a date night with my husband and to finish the evening Regal Cinemas … here we come! Then for a special treat for my very special grandma, I’ll use the Spa Finder gift card and spend an afternoon with her. My husband is a winner with the Bass Pro Shop gift card. All in all – a FABULOUS time to be had. :~)
