Restaurant.com offers gift certificates to various places at a discount, and right now you can take an additional 80% if you use the promo code "PRESENT". Last week, I bought a $25 gift certificate for $2 (usually $10) to a mexican restaurant, and my sisters and I are going to have a "girls night out" together. It's been awhile since all four of us have been in the same place since we're scattered all over!
Usually there are conditions for the gift certificate: the one I bought can be used on a purchase of $35 or more. So I paid $2 for the certificate, and might spend another $10-$15 out-of-pocket. Not bad at all!!!
You can print the gift certificate immediately after purchasing, so there is no wait for anything to be shipped to you!
