Got a few last-minute Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers you need to figure out? You may want to consider a restaurant gift card. It’s a holiday present that’s on the wish list of about six in ten of us here in the USA.
A new survey conducted by the National Restaurant Association shows that one in five Americans (26%) plan to give a restaurant gift card as a holiday gift this season, while more than twice that many (59%) said they would like to receive one.
The NRA’s research indicates that women (65%) are a bit more likely than men (52%) to desire a restaurant gift card this holiday season.
As far as using the gift cards, 44% of those who said they wish to receive a gift card, say they would use it within a few weeks, while about the same number (43%) say they would save it for a special occasion. Another 12% say they would use the card “as soon as possible.”
