    Holiday Gift Idea: A Deck of Cards
    Otom Restaurant
    Otom Restaurant is one of the 52 restaurants in the deck of cards.

    You know the drill.  Every year you have to buy a gift for your brother/sister/spouse (insert name of the person in your life who has everything here) and you are at a loss as to what you should get. Again. We have a suggestion: how about a deck of cards?  Before you roll your eyes and snort, just know that this deck from A la card is no ordinary deck of cards. No, it's not magic, but it's pretty amazing just the same. Each card describes a city restaurant and serves as a $10 gift certificate to that restaurant.  Some of the restaurants include Aigre Doux , Between Boutique, David Burke's Primehouse, Mado, Sushi Wabi and more. Worth $520, this deck only costs $30!  And perhaps the best thing about the deck is that $1 from each sale is donated to Common Threads, a non-profit organization founded by Art Smith, Oprah Winfrey's former chef.  Common Threads' mission is to educate children on the importance of nutrition and physical well-being, and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking.  Sounds like a gift that keeps on giving for everyone involved.
