Everywhere you look, people are getting into the holiday spirit.

Lights are being hung, Facebook and Instagram are filled with pictures of Christmas trees being decorated, and of course, businesses are advertising gifts for your loved ones. We hear a lot that people have a hard time shopping for the wine lover in their life. They get nervous about picking out the wrong wine or have no idea where to even start. We admit it can be intimidating but we’re here to make this year’s holiday shopping a little easier for you.

Small Batch Box from Niche Wine Co. 

Do you have a wine lover in your life that’s also a bookworm? Niche Wine Co has grouped all the things we love into Small Batch Boxes while supporting fellow local businesses. The toughest decision you’ll have to make here is…Team Foch or Team Merlot? Each batch box comes with wine, a cozy crewneck sweater, a book and gourmet chocolate. You may lose your loved one for a few days while their nose is in a book, but we’re confident they’ll coin this as the best gift ever. The boxes ship Canada-wide.

Wine Club to their Favourite Winery

It’s safe to say that these days almost every winery has a wine club. Typically the perks of membership are –  discounts, first access to rare wines, events for members – but the BEST part is, wine delivered straight to your door a few times a year. It’s like Christmas comes more than once. Personally, we love our membership at Terravista Vineyards because they’re one of those wineries producing high quality and unique wines that sell out in a blink of an eye. Being a member is the best way to get your hands on a bottle! But we suggest you start by doing a little snooping and finding out if your loved one has a favourite winery. If not, a safe bet is gifting them one from your favourite spot. Either way, club membership is definitely the gift that keeps on giving!

Wine Tasting Party with Red Lips & Wine Sips! 

Know anyone that loves tasting new wines and learning by doing? A virtual or private in-home tasting might be the perfect gift. We absolutely love creating unique tasting experiences that will elevate your wine knowledge while entertaining you and your guests. There’s no better way to start a fun night in or a Zoom call than adding a little wine tasting to it. We offer tastings in your home, office or virtually, always focusing on the Okanagan Valley and what it has to offer. Purchase a gift card for your loved one, and we’ll take over from there. 

Gift Card to Your Favourite Winery

Okay, we agree – buying something that you enjoy for someone else might be a bit of a stretch.  But, you’re friends for a reason right? Chances are if it’s something you enjoy, they will as well! Trust us! This also gives them the opportunity to be able to try a wine that they may not have tasted before or pop by a winery they’ve never visited. With over 100 wineries in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valley’s there are so many great options to choose from! Need a suggestion? We’re happy to help just reach out @redlips_winesips
