The gift-giving holidays are in full swing. In fact, we’re only a week away from Christmas! How did that happen?

If you’re like me and wait until the last minute to do your holiday shopping or need some last-minute gift ideas, check out these holiday gift card deals.

The best part is you can get a little something for yourself, too!

For the Coffee Lovers

When it comes to finding a gift for the coffee lover in your life, nothing says “I care” quite like a hot cup of joe or that one latte pumpkin spice lovers look forward to every holiday season.

That’s why these gift card deals are the perfect treats for your favorite coffee lovers or yourself — you know, to maintain the momentum during your holiday shopping.

1. Dunkin' Donuts

Visit Dunkin’ Donuts website and snag this awesome gift card deal. Just buy $20 in Dunkin’ Donut gift cards online and get a $5 electronic gift card for yourself.

Dunkin’ limits this deal to just one per customer, and the free electronic gift card expires Jan. 31, 2018.  

2. Peet’s Coffee & Tea

Peet’s offers a $5 bonus card for every $25 you spend in electronic gift cards. This offer is available until Dec. 31, 2017, and bonus cards may be redeemed in-store from Jan. 1-31, 2018. See the terms and conditions for more details.

3. Starbucks

We haven’t found any gift card deals for Starbucks, but the coffee chain is giving away $1 million in free $20 gift cards, along with offering a few other promotions worth celebrating this holiday season.

For the Hangry

Wait, what’s hangry? This is the term given to those who get a little angry when they’re hungry: angry + hungry = hangry. It’s become such a popular term that even Snickers has found a way to promote it.

So if you know anyone who fits this term, these gift card deals are sure to be the perfect gifts.

4. Applebee’s

Applebee’s is offering a $10 bonus gift card with the purchase of a $50 gift card now through Jan. 7, 2018. The bonus card is good through March 4, 2018.

What’s even better is Applebee’s is giving the gift of $1 Long Island iced teas through the entire month of December, so be sure to grab yourself one when you stop in — or go back another day to use that $10 bonus card and get 10, but don’t say we told you to do it.

5. BJ’s Restaurants

I must admit, BJ’s had me at Pizookie — and if someone gave me a BJ’s gift card, I’d most likely use it to order every type of Pizookie on the menu.

BJ’s has two bonus gift card deals that run through Jan. 1, 2018: Buy a $50 gift card and get a $10 bonus card, or buy a $100 gift card and get a $25 bonus card. The bonus cards are only valid Jan. 1-Feb. 23, 2018.

There doesn’t appear to be a limit on how many bonus cards you can snag. I added 10 gift cards for $100 each to my cart — the maximum number of gift cards Outback allows you to purchase — and it automatically added 20 bonus cards to my cart. (I should also mention I added 10 cards for $100 to my cart out of curiosity and not because I’m a baller.)
