Father’s Day in Harvard Square

Harvard Square E-gift Cards

If you’re looking to buy a special present but are unsure which of your favorite Harvard Square businesses to patronize, new e-gift cards are available to purchase! E-Gift Cards take the guesswork out of shopping and give your recipient immediate access to stores, restaurants and more! They can be emailed or texted, and for those who prefer something in hand, there is an option to print.
If your favorite Harvard Square business is not listed, please check back as this list is updated frequently. On behalf of the Harvard Square Business Association members and staff, we thank you for your support during these challenging times. Stay safe and healthy!
