Ah, Christmas, a time for family. With a Christmas tree decked with fairy lights and Christmas stockings hanging off the mantelpiece, it’s a time for everyone to embrace the magic and wonder that makes Christmas special. A relaxed time with all your loved ones.

OK, that’s the fairy story but what’s the real story?

If you’re a parent, the Christmas season is more likely to have you tearing your hair out whilst searching for something to distract your children with. So how do you keep the little monsters occupied during the long two weeks (for parents) of school half-term holidays without spending a fortune? Let tastecard contribute to a stress-free Christmas with our family deals and exclusive savings on eating out, hotel accommodation and visitor attractions. Did we mention the loads and loads of savings we have for all the family to share?

Treat your Family to a Meal Out

Forget about the Christmas fairy tale, just make sure you make it from one end of December to the other! With tastecard you can save 50% on food, or get 2 for 1 meals. Eat out at family friendly restaurants like PizzaExpress but don’t pay a penny more than you have to with our tastecard restaurant deals. Try the new vegan cheese at Pizza Hut Restaurants or indulge in the almost seasonal sticky chicken wings at Frankie & Benny’s. That’ll waste a few hours! For all the info on December availability for some of our top chain restaurants check out all the details here. Keep up to date with all our amazing offers and fantastic competitions on our Facebook page.

But what do you do when your kid’s bellies are as full as Santa Claus?
