Food always works as a solid gift, no matter the occasion, especially if you're running out of ideas. The best part about a last-minute foodie gift? No one will ever know or even care if you were tight on time — because, let's face it, eating delicious food makes us forget about everything else.
Olive Garden is making it easier than ever to snag a hit last-minute present with a festive breadstick promotion. Olive Garden is boxing up its beloved breadsticks for all the lovely holiday makers that want them. All you have to do is call or order online and request to have your to-go breadstick order placed in a cute decorative box. Although the boxes are quite large (they can fit up to 18 breadsticks at a time), there isn't a rule on how many you have to order to get a box.
Dress your Olive Garden breadstick box with wrapping paper, bows, or whatever else you have lying around for an easy and affordable holiday gift. Get a half dozen for $3.99 or a whole dozen for $6.29.

Some might say only a true Olive Garden fanatic would be happy to receive a box of breadsticks on Christmas, but we think it's a super simple and original idea. It'll even win you "best gift" at this year's Secret Santa grab, we have no doubt! And if you think about it, this take-out gift trick could be used at other restaurants as well. Take Red Lobster's cheesy cheddar biscuits, for instance. Who wouldn't want a gift basket full of those?
And to up the magic just a little bit more, Olive Garden recommends leaving an extra order of breadsticks out for Santa. What a cute way to start a new tradition!
