We have already suggested some great gifts for the wine lovers in your life. But if you're a last minute shopper (like us!) and have a few people left, consider buying them a wine club membership.
Most are a minimum three-month commitment of two bottles a month, but they come in many varieties and price points. And not only will your recipients get new wines each month, but they'll also think of you every time they open the box.
But before you go online and sign them up for this fabulous gift, there are a few things to look for when choosing the right club.
- Make Sure the Club Can Ship to Your State
Wine Shipping laws are quirky (and archaic), so not every club can ship to every state.
Check out this link on her site. Go pick the state first. Then you'll find the clubs that ship there.
- Understand Your Budget
You can't just send one bottle through a wine club. You can do that through a retailer.
As mentioned above, most clubs start with a three-month commitment and generally includes a monthly two-bottle shipment. Realistically, that will run cost you around $150.
Now clearly you can spend more (or less) than that. But now you have a ballpark of the pricing.
