1. For the outdoor enthusiast in your family, take a look at some of the great deals offered by the folks at The Headwaters Kayak Shop. Many of their kayaks, which can be viewed online, are marked $100 off right now. Or, if you'd prefer your special someone to choose for themselves, there are also gift cards available. Of course, that kayak is perfect for taking out on Lodi Lake and the always fun Headwaters Boathouse tours, paddles and events throughout the year!
2. For the wine drinker in your family, we recommend grabbing a bottle (or two) of some of Lodi's world-renowned wine, which can be picked up at any of the city's 85+ wineries. Many wineries, such as Jeremy Wine Co., are currently offering holiday specials. While Zinfandel is Lodi's claim to fame, the Lodi area is also home to many different varietals, including Spanish varietal wines available at Bokisch Vineyards! With more than 100 different varietals of wine to choose from, Lodi is the perfect place to shop for that wine lover in your family! Don't forget to add that perfect cheese pairing to that gift from Lodi's Cheese Central.
3. For that parent with young kids in your family, take a look at the family friendly options that Lodi has to offer! Perhaps some tickets to the World of Wonders Science Museum would be a good treat, where kids can learn hands-on about science and technology. Or, perhaps a day at The Mud Mill would be a good choice for those families that enjoy painting and decorating pottery together. Don't forget about those A&W Root Beer Floats! Lodi is the birthplace of A&W Root Beer, after all.
