Gifts are great after a new baby, big sale, illness, injury, or any number of occasions.
We don't recommend booking an appointment for a friend, as this often causes problems with the menu, time, address, contact info, etc. Instead, send a gift!
Giving Dinner Elf is both easy and personal.
- Go to giving checkout.
- Pick a package and an image for your gift email.
- Your recipient gets a credit to pick any dinners they like.
After you pick an occasion, select a package they might enjoy.
- Packages are affordable, starting at $50.
- Select "Any Menu" If you want to make sure your recipient has no out-of-pocket expense.
💡You'll give a gift package, but they'll use a credit to order anything on the menu. If you'd like to give a specific credit (e.g. $100), adjust your package to give your amount.
Images in your email
Add an image to your gift email. Pick one of our options...
...or upload your own! They might enjoy seeing a photo of you. 👍
Add your recipient's phone number to share the love by text.
They'll get the text: "[your name] just gave you dinner from Dinner Elf! See your email for more details :)"
- Prior to sending your email, you can send a test email to yourself.
- Add a comma to send to multiple emails.
- Tip: Use your own email to print the gift.
- Once you're ready, send the email or schedule it for later.
- When your recipient opens their email, you'll get a confirmation email.
Your giving page
After you order, review your giving page that includes:
- A list of all your past gifts
- The email status of each gift (e.g. "Opened")
