Jillian Harris 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway Jillian Harris 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway

This giveaway is SO fun and is going to make the perfect getaway for our lucky winner and their plus one!! The Sip, Soar, and Stay VIP Getaway allows YOU to explore Kelowna and experience the best BC’s Okanagan Valley has to offer!! For those of you who may not be familiar with Kelowna, it’s a uniquely beautiful place set on sparkling Okanagan Lake with the perfect mix of four-seasons of activities: ski the slopes in the winter, hike and bike in the spring, hit the beach in the summer, and enjoy all the food and wine harvest flavours in fall (or throughout the year). It’s also the place Justin and I call home!

Kelowna is also a perfect place to getaway and relax and the best part is, it’s an amazing place to experience in EVERY season!! The lucky winner is seriously going to get the VIP treatment here … not only will you be staying here in the Okanagan for three nights but you’re going to do some pretty cool things while you’re here too! Let me lay out ALL of the details for you below!!

Tourism Kelowna

Tourism Kelowna pulled this entire giveaway together and are generously providing up to $2,500 for transportation, up to $500 for spa services (I LOVE spa days more than anything!!), $250 in spending money for your visit (ummm …. hellooo!), plus an incredible dinner out at Old Vines The Restaurant (my all-time fave restaurant in Kelowna!!) at Quails’ Gate with a $250 gift card courtesy of Quails’ Gate Estate Winery.

Sip: Wines of British Columbia

Wines of British Columbia want to ensure you savour this place any time of year and have enough to share with others, so they’re including a $1,000 shopping spree to buy premium BC VQA Wine from Save on Foods grocery stores which provide the largest selection of BC VQA Wines in the province!

Soar: Valhalla Helicopters

Soar over Kelowna and see the beautiful Okanagan Valley (BC’s premium wine-growing region) in a one-of-a-kind, full-day helicopter wine tour experience from Valhalla Helicopters, including visits and tastings at four amazing local wineries.
