December is always a busy month! Parties, school programs, shopping – it’s all great stuff, but it can be draining.

  • Schedule family time:

    You have so many demands on your time. Don’t forget to block out time for quiet evenings in with the people that matter most. Cozy up for a family movie night, bake cookies together or just take a walk in the city looking at the window displays or Christmas decorations in your neighborhood.

  • Shop online:

    Why fight the stores when you can pour a glass of Gooseneck Vineyards wine and shop in the comfort of your own home? Plus, with online coupon codes, you can often save even more!

  • Buy in bulk:

    Buy a case of Gooseneck Vineyards wine to have on hand for hostess gifts. Pick up multipacks of Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts gift cards to have on hand for teachers and babysitters. Wrap them up in advance so you can just grab as you need!

  • Take a moment for just yourself:
