Father’s Day gift that keeps on giving

(ARA) – When it comes to gift-giving for someone as important in your life as dear old dad, are you stumped over what to get? Sure, your father would love another tie, fishing lure or golf shirt, but those aren’t really gifts with meaning.

To show him how much you really care, go with a non-traditional gift that keeps on giving. For example, instead of a tie, he might like a gift certificate to a high-end clothing store he normally wouldn’t visit. Instead of yet another golf shirt, give him lessons with a pro who will help polish his game. That way the next time he hits the links with business associates, they’ll be so impressed by his aptitude and skill that closing the deal will come naturally.

Instead of taking him out for dinne, a gesture that will be appreciated but quickly forgotten, give him a wine club membership. That way he’ll have something to look forward to not just on Father’s Day, but throughout the year.

Wine makes a great gift because it’s not something that will be put away and forgotten. It will be savored and enjoyed by both the wine novice and wine aficionado from the time the bottle is opened until the last drop is gone. And membership comes with rewards.

Take for example the benefits offered by The Gold Medal Wine Club (www.goldmedalwine.com), which specializes in delivering hard-to-find wines from small, family-owned California wineries to people all across the country. Buy dad a three-month Gold Series Membership to try it out for less than $100, and he’ll get two highly-rated bottles of wine a month (one red, one white) neatly gift-wrapped in tissue and perfectly tied bows around each bottleneck. He’ll also receive a fun and informative color publication called “The Wine Press” that features information about the wines, the fascinating backgrounds of the winery owners, a behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyards and great food pairing ideas from the winemakers themselves.

If your dad has always dreamed of expanding his horizons with a trip overseas but just couldn’t find the time or resources to do it, a great surprise would be a Gold Medal Wine Club International Series trial membership. Imagine his delight when a box arrives containing three bottles of rare and wonderful international wines packaged with a unique collection of delicious gourmet food items direct from the featured country. Their full color “Taste the Adventure” publication includes information on the wines, winery and country. Each shipment is around $100 and annual gifts (four deliveries per year) receive a 15 percent discount.

Take care of your gift orders early by logging on to www.goldmedalwine.com or calling (800) 266-8888 and your gift will surely arrive in time for Father’s Day. That’s especially good news, particularly for those gift-givers who plan to spend the day with dad, because it means they may get to enjoy the wines as well!

All of the wines offered by The Gold Medal Wine Club are hard-to-find, small production wines from boutique family wineries. The wines have won multiple medals and awards from major wine competitions and have high ratings from the major wine publications. Some wines are even pre-releases and exclusives that are only offered at the winery itself and through the club.

The Gold Medal Wine Club is based in Santa Barbara, Calif., and is one of America’s leading independent wine clubs. The company has been in business since 1992.
