We just keep involving her in the planning/shopping/making/giving and giving basic explanations like, "We're buying jeans for a little boy who doesn't...
Agreeing with others--check the restrictions. For some restaurants, they are smokin' deals, and for others, they aren't very useful. There aren't any participating restaurants where we live, but it was great for our vacation to Las Vegas.
