Holiday Deals in Cincinnati & Northern KentuckyAs mentioned in my SHOP LOCAL post, I love to do our holiday shopping at locally owned businesses.  And one of my favorite “easy” gifts to give is gift cards.  I know, I know, I know….some folks think that giving gift cards is pretty unimaginative.  In my mind, giving a gift card is like giving an experience!  I love getting gift cards to go out to eat or have experiences with my family.

I decided to put together a list of local restaurants and businesses that offer deals for customers who are purchasing gift cards during the holiday season.  Why not get some shopping done and get a little extra in return?  This list will be evolving and growing as I hear of more deals, so be sure to keep checking back!  Happy Holidays!  #ShopLocal
