Combine Early Christmas Shopping with a Fall Mini Vacation in Napa
As the winter season approaches, so do Christmas parties, celebrations, and annual family gatherings. Long shopping lists can be daunting and make many people dread, rather than enjoy, the lead up to the holidays. Why not take a different approach this year? If Christmas shopping usually gives you a headache, consider planning ahead and making a weekend of it in Napa Valley. A centrally-located boutique hotel in Napa is the perfect place to stay for efficient shopping, gorgeous vineyards, and a relaxing weekend. Turn the stressful part of holiday preparations into a new tradition you can get excited about.
Napa is the perfect place to shop for all the items on your loved ones’ wish lists and find some unexpected treasures. Here are some of our favorite shops to scout for treasures under the tree:
- Markets –The Oxbow Public Market and Spice Islands Marketplace offer plenty of amazing foods to sample and give as gifts. Foodies and amateur chefs alike will enjoy receiving gourmet oils, specialty spice blends, and hard to find (but easy to use) tools for the kitchen. Inspire a year of great cooking with a cookbook or other gifts from these emporiums of all things food and wine.
- Clothing – If the kids are growing or dad needs a new sweater, why not get a sweet deal on it? Napa Premium Outlets is a great way to make one stop and find a lot of the items on your list. With name brands and attractive discounts, you will feel confident in your purchases on everything from shoes to athletic wear.
- Wine – It’s an obvious choice, but one that is always appreciated! Whether you need hostess gifts for parties or have some wine lovers in your friends’ circle, pick up some bottles from your favorite local vineyard after a tour. If you have a real wine connoisseur on your gift list, consider signing them up for a membership at 90 Plus Wine Club. This unique gift allows them to receive local wines, shipped to their home address on a regular basis. You decide the frequency and types of wine, so this gift is as customized as it is delicious.
