Holiday shopping can be really stressful, but it’s also a great opportunity to share your favorite things with the people you care about and support local businesses. A gift with a story makes a longer lasting impression and shows that you really put thought and effort into selecting it. Gifting locally crafted items you love adds a sense of place, a special connection. So, this year don’t just shop, shop local!
Missouri wineries are a great place to check off your shopping list. You’ll find locally made, award-winning wine, gift baskets, cute novelty items, and unique accessories in the tasting rooms and gift shops of 130 wineries across the state. The opportunity to taste before you buy is rare; so take advantage of it. And think about it this way… if you purchase a case of Missouri wine, you’ve just picked up 12 gifts all at once. Well, that was easy! Make it even easier with these free printable bottle gift tags.
Wine makes a great gift for loved ones, but it’s also super handy for all the little gifting needs that pop up this time of year… host/hostess gifts, secret Santa, etc. If you have a few extra bottles of Missouri wine around, you’ll never be without a great gift option. There are tons of ways to creatively wrap wine as a gift as well. Here are some ideas.
Drink local. Shop local. Give local!
