It's already a week into the month of December and each new day is bringing us closer to Christmas. I wish I could say I was one of those people that has all of their Christmas shopping finished by August, but sadly, I'm not one of those people. Usually, I'm that person running around that last week before Christmas still without gift ideas.
The week before Christmas, I often find myself in the local wine and spirits shop trying to find a bottle of wine to pair with a warm scarf or gloves. The only problem with that scenario is that I spend way too much time mulling over my choices, since I don't really know too much about wine other than the old rules of red with meat or white with fish or poultry. Rules that I think don't always apply these days.
After enjoying a two-month membership to the California Wine Club, I decided to let them help me pick out some wine for family and friends in the form of their Wine of the Month Club!
As part of a blog campaign, I received a two month membership to the Wine of the Month Club. This is the first time I've ever had wine delivered to my door. I couldn't believe how well it was packaged. Two bottles of wine were shipped safely in a snug-fitting, foam holder that fit perfectly into the shipping box. I was impressed with how much nicer it presented than the bubble wrap and packing peanuts I thought would be in the box!
Since the gift is delivered right to the recipient, it's one less thing I have to gift wrap (by the way, in the shipment I received this month the bottles were festively wrapped in red and silver foil gift bags) or haul out to the truck when we do our holiday visiting!
This year, I'm all about making the holidays a bit easier on myself and the California Wine Club is helping to alleviate some of the holiday stress!
Now that I've taken care of a few more people on my Christmas list, it's time for me to sit back, put my feet up and enjoy a glass of wine!
If you have a wine lover on your Christmas gift list, you should definitely consider the California Wine Club and the Wine of the Month Club. Note: Shipping Alert! Ground Shipping Deadline is December 12th, orders placed after that date incur expedited air charges for Christmas deliveries.
