There might be a holiday shopping resource you haven’t thought of before. One where you can get unique items and products, support small businesses, and have a good time while you’re at it. We’re talking about Missouri wineries. Most Missouri wineries have great gift shops where you can not only buy your favorite Missouri wines, but also fun and unique products and merchandise.
Missouri wineries often partner with local artists and producers to offer really interesting and special items that make great gifts such as handmade jewelry, custom ornaments, and so much more. Check and see if the winery you’re visiting will create custom gift baskets.
Wine itself of course makes a great gift and the nice thing about buying it directly from the winery (in addition to the fact that you’re supporting small, family businesses) is that you get to try it before you buy it. Do a wine tasting and find great gifts for your family and friends. That sounds like a win, win.
This year if you want to avoid the crowds of the strip malls and big department stores, consider doing some sipping and shopping at Missouri wineries. Cheers to a happy holiday season!
