I challenge anyone to question the magic of Christmas now that this wine advent calendar from VineBox exists in this known universe. Rather than following the traditional 24-day advent calendar, it follows the 12 days of Christmas, coming with a pre-portioned glass of a unique wine for each day. (Side note: technically the "12 days of Christmas" are Dec. 25 through Jan. 5, but I think in the spirit of the ~holidays~, we can make VineBox's start Dec. 13 instead.) Each glass comes labeled with the number of the day so you can take the advent calendar journey as it was intended, and the selections, according to the website, include "Burgundy, Barolo, Bordeaux and more!"
Right now it retails for $129 with shipping included, but will retail for $109.65 on Cyber Monday. But really, can you put a price on being among the humans who get to be a part of the very first wine advent calendar? You're basically a pioneer. In the infinite wisdom of Tom from Parks and Rec, "Treat yo self." Or, if you're feeling like an especially nice sister/daughter/BFF this year, treat someone else.
Here's what the packaging and the little glasses look like when they arrive at your door.
Um, yes please.
Actually reeling over how classy this is. Why did it take us this many moons as a species to come up with such a perfect idea? You can reserve your own "Twelve Nights Of Wine" here — and in the meantime, if you're looking for some fun advent calendar ideas, give these a try as well.
