Holiday Gifts for Him

The holiday season is the perfect time to show your love and appreciation for those important men in your life; even the ones who are hard to shop for. Whether you’re searching for the ideal present for your boyfriend, brother, dad, cousin, or husband, chances are you’ve been stumped on what to buy. At long last, you don’t need to search any further because we have the perfect holiday gifts for him.

Whether your loved one is across the hallway or across the country, sharing a gift from WineCollective this holiday season will have him smiling from ear-to-ear. Easily delivered to his door for one, two, three, six, or twelve months, this is truly the gift that keeps on giving! We admit we’re a little biased in how great our gifts are, so we’ve asked our members to share their personal WineCollective gifting experiences. 

A Gift For The Man Who is Hard to Buy For

We know it’s cliche, but men can be tricky to shop for, especially when it comes to the holidays. Oftentimes they’ve already bought everything they need, which leaves you searching high and low for hints. Part of the fun of the season is finding that great gift he would never expect. And what is more unexpected than a shipment of wine, right to his front door?! Our wine gifts include wine selections that aren’t often found in stores across Canada and they’re always a surprise. It’s truly an exciting, unexpected gift each month.

Every month when their gift delivery comes, they take pictures of the bottles as they open them, they give us their thoughts. They haven’t had a bottle they didn’t like in 3 years and we like knowing that their gift is the easiest one on our list every year.

Gathering during the holidays is something extra special. However, it doesn’t always happen the way you imagine. Especially this year with many people staying closer to home, we’re all searching for ways to spread holiday joy far and wide. WineCollective makes gifting across Canada simple. You can still be a holiday-hero, even from a distance! 

… all our children and families in Nanaimo, Sherwood Park, Halifax, Edmonton and Calgary have our Xmas presents; great wine selected carefully, shipped on time, along with arrival communications. … Right now we’re preparing our notes with addresses, email data, phone numbers, etc. … For us it’s like a miracle and we’re happy as can be. Sincere thanks for your ability to get things done, excellent products and real caring for your customers.

A Gift For The Entertainer

Whether he’s inviting some friends over for a backyard cigar or hosting a small holiday party, the guy who lives to entertain will love WineCollective. While it’s tempting to open up every bottle you receive each month, WineCollective members also save them to share. Whether that’s for gifting individually or to uncork at dinner parties, getting 3 bottles of great wine shipped each month takes the guesswork out of purchasing wine. What more could a host want?! Save him time and get him a WineCollective gift.

We received a gift of five months of WineCollective. The gift was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary… So far we have collected on the first two months, and the wines have been excellent… What an excellent Christmas present for that special person or a couple in your life.

Holiday Gifts for Her

Sisters. Moms. Wives. Friends. We search high and low to find perfect gifts for her during the holidays. Whether she already has everything or she lives on the other side of the country – you’ll be able to show her how much she means to you this holiday season with the help of WineCollective. 

Gift her with the present that keeps on giving – a monthly wine gift subscription. Delivered to her door for however many months you choose, it’s a constant reminder of how much she is loved. We admit we’re biased, so don’t just take our word for it! We asked our members share their own personal stories about gifting with WineCollective.

A Gift Idea for the Woman Who Has Everything

There is always that woman on your list who just seems to have it all. When asked ‘What’s on your list this year?’ she likely says ‘Oh, don’t worry about me, I don’t need anything.’ (Very helpful, Mom). But you still want to show her how much she means to you through a holiday gift. This is where we come in; send her a wine gift. She’ll get a monthly delivery of wine which she can enjoy on her own or share with everyone she loves. It’s the perfect gift for your mom, wife, or girlfriend. 

Beats the heck out of a bottle of champagne. So far we have collected in the first two months (four bottles of excellent affordable wines each month) and the wines have been excellent… As a matter of fact we have actually purchased four bottles of the wines we have liked the best to date. We are pleased that we were introduced to WineCollective. What an excellent Christmas present for that special person or a couple in your life.

Is that special lady in your life always hosting? She loves to have guests over and treat them to yummy snacks and delicious drinks. Give her a truly meaningful gift this year with WineCollective. She’ll receive 3 bottles of wine per month (for as many months as you choose) accompanied by an interactive tasting guide. She’ll love learning about each unique wine and sharing her knowledge with her guests. She could even lead them in a wine tasting. It’s the perfect holiday gift idea for your mom, wife, or best friend.

The wine collective subscription has been the answer to the perfect gift. They love trying new wines and the cards that come with each wine help them impress their friends with all their fancy wine knowledge.

A Gift For The Far Away Friend

Many of us have family and friends spread across Canada. Travelling to visit everyone on your list during the holidays can be a challenge, especially in 2020 (darn Covid…). But it doesn’t mean that you can’t spread holiday cheer by sending an amazing wine gift to your Mom in Nova Scotia, and your sister in Ontario or even your wife on the couch beside you in BC. 

I’m retired and have been for about 2 decades, so personal shopping for our family members is extremely limited. At that time of our first order, your phone number was available… and I called to receive the best help for holiday shopping that ever existed. Every November since I make the same call, answered by the same person and through her we buy presents for our family and friends right across Canada.

So that’s our story. One phone call and all our children and family in Nanaimo, Sherwood Park, Halifax, Edmonton and Calgary have our Xmas presents; great wine selected carefully, shipped on time, along with arrival communications.
