It can be difficult to find a present for someone who already has everything they could ever want, and it gets even more challenging when you have an appreciation or interest in fine wines. For this reason, many people choose a wine gift basket as a perfect solution to the problem of finding a suitable present for this kind of person. A wine gift basket, if chosen well, is something that will provide delight and pleasure. But just buying pre-assembled wine gift baskets from local retailers may not be as personalized as you’d hope.
That’s where our ideas can come into play. If you have a wine lover or adventurer in your family or group of friends, why not send them on their way to Niagara-on-the-Lake as a gift? Here are some ideas on what to get them.
Send Your Family & Friends To Niagara-on-the-Lake To Enjoy These Special Gifts
1. Niagara Falls Sightseeing
Obviously if you’re from the area, you know how many sights there are to see and enjoy in Niagara Falls, just a 25-minute drive from Niagara-on-the-Lake. While the recipient may have seen the falls many times before, there are plenty of other package experiences you can purchase for them. If you want to surprise them with more of an outdoor adventure gift, why not gift them a fun package that involves activities such as boat tours that go near the falls or the whirlpool? If you really want to get their adrenaline rushing, there are also ziplining activities that will take them along the Niagara River to the falls’ observation landing.
After they spend their time on a boat or ziplining, they’ll surely be hungry. Treat them to a delicious, fine dining experience in town. Some of the town’s favourite places to eat include Prime Steakhouse Niagara Falls, Massimo’s Italian Fallsview Restaurant, Casa Mia Ristorante, and Weinkeller, just to name a few.
2. For The History Buffs
One of the best reasons to visit Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake is learning all about the fascinating history. This can be done by paying for your family or friends who are history buffs to go to places like Fort George, Brock’s Monument, Laura Secord Homestead, Niagara Falls History Museum, Old Fort Erie, and the Niagara Military Museum. Each location has its own shop where they can purchase souvenirs or unique gifts for others.
3. Wine Tasting Packages
The Niagara Region is known for its abundance of world-class vineyards and breweries that offer visitors the chance to sip and taste their own crafts while enjoying food and shopping around the gift shops for unique flavours of beer, wine, cider or Icewine to add to their personal collections.
There are plenty of wine tasting packages to gift your family and friends, but why not surprise them with a more personalized tasting experience? This is especially nice during occasions like birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or nearing an anniversary or Christmas. This is why our vineyard, The Hare Wine Co., wants to celebrate your occasion with you. Our vineyard is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake and features stunning views of our estate. We have a beautiful outdoor patio, but also have a private wine tasting room that couples, small groups or larger groups can enjoy themselves without being bothered by large groups coming in by the busloads. Each wine tasting is led by an experienced, professional and friendly staff member who is passionate about wine and ensuring you have a great stay. We craft and carry red, white, rosé, sparkling and Icewine varieties.
Give Them A Gift They’ll Remember Forever
Niagara-on-the-Lake is full of amazing activities that make for a great gift for someone. Because it’s such a popular tourist destination, it makes purchasing tour packages easy whether the recipient is into outdoor activities, learning about history, or taste-testing wine. Whatever the occasion is they’re celebrating, they’ll love driving to Niagara-on-the-Lake for a weekend getaway or just a day trip to enjoy the gift you’ve given them.
