Christmas is all about giving – it’s a holiday that celebrates the birth of Christ and encompasses a spirit of giving and generosity. Fortunately for us weary shoppers, many dining establishments are remembering that generosity and offer free food and drinks this holiday season to all of us looking to save a few dollars and still eat something delicious in the midst of our shopping extravaganza. If you’re still not done with your Christmas shopping – and even if you are – you might want to take advantage of some of these amazing deals so that you can enjoy all that the holiday has to offer this year. We have five great food and drink deals that are designed to save you money when you’re out shopping.
If you have to make a stop at IKEA, you’re going to enjoy the luxury of a free coffee when you stop by. This is an offer that’s good through December 16, so you have another week or so to stop by and claim your coffee and enjoy it while you shop. It’s going to make your trip that much more exciting.
We love these amazing pretzels, and we think that pretty much everyone alive also loves these pretzels.
