Support Sacramento Area Businesses from Home

ETA: With the new recommendations, it is more important than ever to help our local businesses!  Thank you for taking the time to visit this page and to support local businesses!

Hi friends!  We are in an uncertain time and I know that most people want to hole up in their house.  However, our local businesses are suffering due to the fact that people are too afraid to visit.  While looking on Facebook, I saw a GREAT idea that is a simple way to help your local businesses without even leaving your home.  All you have to do is go online to their website and buy a gift card.  Then, as soon as you feel comfortable, you can go get your meal, salon service, gift items, etc...  To take it a step further, I am compiling a list of local Sacramento area small businesses that offer online gift cards and I'm linking them here.

Please keep in mind that these businesses are owned by FAMILIES in our community who have to feed their children too.  The brick and mortar places still have to pay the rent and utilities for their spaces as well as the bills at home.  If you are able to contribute to them a little bit in this time, they will be so thankful.

Don't forget that this is also a WONDERFUL way to shop for gifts.  Easter is coming, maybe get your kids a gift card to their favorite ice cream or boba place.  Mother's Day is in a couple months, get your mom or wife or whoever a massage or meal at their favorite restaurant.  If you have a kid who is going to have a birthday, you can get them a gift card to a play place or a store to pick out their own gift.  There are also local store who have put their inventory online which I will list as well.  We have to ban together to help our local businesses!
