I’m Shelley Hunter, Gift Card Girlfriend, and I’m excited to talk to you about Holiday Favorites Gift Cards.

Holiday Favorites are one of many new multi-store gift cards launched by Blackhawk Network this holiday season. Each one gives the recipient access to top stores, restaurants and entertainment options that have been hand-selected to appeal to a wide variety of consumers.

What I love about Holiday Favorites Gift Cards is that the recipient gets a choice—they can choose to redeem this gift card for a new outfit at Macy’s, new bar stools at Wayfair, makeup at Ulta, a new book at Barnes & Noble, and more—and since Grubhub is also featured no this card, well, you now have access to restaurants all over the country.

Now here’s a tip. To use a Holiday Favorites Gift Card you’ll need to do two things.

First, redeem the gift card at

Second, select the e-gifts you want from the participating stores.

You can redeem it all on one retailer e-gift or you can break the value up into a couple of different merchants depending on how much you have to spend. Once you make that selection, your e-gift will arrive via email and you can use it to shop in stores or online at that merchant.

And don’t worry—there are no fees or expiration dates to worry about. Holiday Favorites are, one of MY favorite gift cards for the holidays.
