Splurge on a Fancy Dinner | Culinary Experience

Have you every wanted to try an expensive restaurant but always talked yourself out of going there?


I’m guilty.

There is an expensive steak restaurant near where I live that I’ve always wanted to try. It’s so close to my house I drive by it almost every day.

The restaurant has a great reputation, and I’ve heard about the delicious food from lots of people I know. So why haven’t I gone there yet?

It’s not that I can’t afford it. I just always come up with different reasons not to. Let’s see…

I’d rather spend that money on something else I want. I feel guilty spending that much money on steak when I’m perfectly happy with the steak served at other less expensive restaurants. I end up deciding to try  another new restaurant in town that isn’t so expensive.

But guess what this lucky lady got for Christmas?! My thoughtful husband gave a gift card to the expensive steak restaurant in my Christmas stocking!

Since I would never splurge on going to that restaurant, he decided he would do it for me!

I feel like because of delayed gratification my food is going to taste 10x better because I’ve been wanting it for years. I can’t wait to go!

Another reason I love my restaurant gift card for a fancy dinner is because I love experiences of trying new things. Experiences is one of my top love languages and my husband knows this!

Now we have a special culinary experience planned for our next date night.

Next time you need a thoughtful gift for someone special in your life, whether it’s your romantic partner, your parents, your sibling or your best friend, consider treating them to a dinner at a fancy restaurant where they would never go and splurge on their own. It shows you really love them and know what they want.

For another idea, a group of siblings, friends or co-workers can treat someone to a fancy meal and split the bill.
