(NAPSI)—Spending family time together can be a relaxing moment in today’s fast-paced world.

Studies have shown that it is important for families to spend time together on a regular basis and share as many meals as possible. Eating together is about more than just food. When families eat together, they talk about the things that happened in their day and how they felt. They grow closer and build a stronger bond because they are some of the most important people in your life.

If your family seeks more ways to spend quality time together, consider the following ideas:

If you know a family that finds it a challenge to eat together, give them a gift card for a meal. Bakers Square has launched a new online gift card program at www.BakersSquare.com. The gift cards can be e-mailed, texted or posted to the Facebook wall of the recipients. Birthday, Graduation and everyday eGift Cards, along with many other holiday-themed cards, are available. You don’t have to wait until a holiday comes along to celebrate because you can celebrate the small victories in life. If your son has a great game or if your daughter gets good grades in school or if your spouse or you earn a promotion, you can customize the message for pretty much anything.

With personalization options available, the fun, convenient gift cards can be sent with personal photos and/or audio messages. To redeem the cards, print out the e-mail or show the message on a smartphone to the cashier. Bakers Square serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, and is renowned for its award-winning pies, with over 25 varieties.
