Costco is more than a bulk retailer, and the holidays bring specialty items that will be even better than a jumbo pack of toilet paper. From sweet gift baskets, toys to decorations, Costco is quite the festive business come the holidays. This year, the traditional advent calendar is getting a makeover. Instead of being filled with chocolates or candies, the large box is full of an assortment of half bottle wines.
While certainly a novelty, those who have had the opportunity to test out the adult Christmas treat have noted the wines to be quite high-quality. Rare varietals that venture far beyond Merlot and Cabernet will surprise and delight connoisseurs. A wine expert has cultivated the assortment.
Festive printings adorn the exterior of the box, so it would make a lovely gift for someone. Smaller bottles mean just the right size for individuals who wouldn’t want to have an entire bottle to tackle. Expect dark red, white and rose varietals with a variation of sweetness.
To shop at Costco, one would typically need a membership. Just $60 annually will get you access into the store. But there is one loophole, a Costco gift card. That’s right, if someone has given you a cash card from the store you can shop there with this. Maybe it will be just enough to snag the $99 advent calendar of our dreams.
