After a tough year, and as we move into a Regional Stay Home Order, Truckee businesses need your help now more than ever. The most important thing you can do right now is shop local from afar and buy gift cards for Truckee lodging, restaurants, or retail shops. They make thoughtful presents for everyone is on your list, perfect for the mountain lover who has it all. With your support, our unique mountain community can get through this crisis and look towards a path of healing and recovery in the future.

1. Truckee businesses need your help.

It hasn’t been an easy year, especially for Truckee’s local business owners. In the face of new shutdowns, during what is typically the busiest time of the year, many businesses are scraping by and wondering how they’ll survive. Now is the time to pitch in and fight for your favorite lodging, restaurants, and retail shops. How do you do that? The best way to help out right now is to buy gift cards online or via phone to give as holiday gifts for friends, family, or even to yourself as a special treat.

2. There’s hope, winter’s not going anywhere.

There’s plenty of winter left to look forward to in January, February, and Miracle March, and we hope to see you after we get through the next three weeks. For right now, let’s focus on staying safe and healthy, and supporting Truckee-Tahoe businesses from afar. If we all work together to stay home and stay safe now, we know we’ll see you before too long. Buy a gift card online and look forward to good times ahead.

3. The greatest gift is an experience.

You’re not just giving a gift card, you’re giving a Truckee-Tahoe experience. And with hope on the horizon, a travel experience is what everyone’s looking forward to in 2021. It’s the perfect way to introduce your friends and family to your favorite places or give them the extra nudge to plan a vacation. They’ll have something to get excited about, savor, and look back on fondly afterward. View Truckee lodging.

4. Easy to wrap, easy to mail.

Skip the long shipping lines and shop online for a gift card instead. It’s easy to mail – just a stamp and envelope, and it’s on its way! – or you could ask to have it sent directly to you or the person you are gifting. Either way, you’ll avoid the hassle of last-minute packages (not to mention wrapping paper and fancy bows) and save time and money at the post office.

5. No more unwanted gifts.

Please, no more ugly sweaters! We’ve all bought well-intended gifts that end up collecting dust in a closet. Take the guesswork out of gift-giving and let your friends or family choose for themselves. With a gift card, they pick exactly what they want – a dish off of a restaurant menu, lodging room & trip dates, a one of a kind item from a Truckee-Tahoe shop, etc.

Be sure to know your cancellation policies as travel may be subject to change.
