Christmas shopping is one of those magical activities that marks the onset of the holiday season. You go out and seek the perfect gift for a friend, loved one, or a co-worker. This year, however, you want something extra special and unique.
If you head over to Napa Valley for a mid-week vacation or even a weekend getaway in November, you could finish up your Christmas shopping before the last-minute crowds. Tick off everyone on your list and relax in wine country minus the stress and hectic pace of preparing for holiday gifting.
To help you get started, here are a few favorites for unique Christmas gifts from Napa Valley:
- Grapeseed Bath and Body Gifts: Napa Valley uses grapes for more than fine wines. In fact, grapeseed oil infused into bath and body products is a good example of this fruit’s versatility. Pick up an organic shampoo, lotion, body wash, or conditioner as a gift.
- Cooking Class Certificates: Silverado Cooking School has cooking class gift certificates available; and the perfect gift for the foodie in your life. Classes can polish your skills and teach you some new ones. Prices for these classes vary, depending on the course selected.
- Fine Olive Oils: The selection of olive oils in Napa is exquisite. Round Pond Estate is especially known for a variety of extra virgin olive oils made from olives ripened in their estate in Rutherford. While you are there, pick up red wine vinegar, syrups, and some homemade vinaigrettes to take home with you. They make for delightful stocking stuffers.
- Homemade Gifts: Napa Valley Traditions is the go-to spot for a unique, homemade gift. You can find everything from delectable jams to aged balsamic, printed towels, and creative gift baskets.
- Sweets: Any time you are out of gift ideas, chocolate certainly can fill the void. The Vintage Sweet Shoppe in Napa Valley has been providing gourmet chocolates since 1978, including their chocolate-covered wine bottles. Stop in for a box of truffles, assorted chocolates, and some fudge for everyone on your gift list.
