Jillian Harris 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways Tourism Kelowna




Jillian Harris

Day 9: A VIP Kelowna Experience

HO HO HO!!! You guys!! It’s officially DAY NINE of Santa Jilly’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways!! After today we only have THREE more days to go which means that ALL of the winners are also going to be notified verrrrrry soon!! That’s right, all of the lucky winners are going to be notified and announced on Monday, December 17th so make sure to get your entries in before the time is up!!

I’m BEYOND excited about today’s giveaway as it’s something we have never done before and I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to do it!! Wanna hear what it is?? Of course, you do!! On the ninth day of Christmas Santa Jilly and her elves are gifting to youuuuu … a VIP KELOWNA EXPERIENCE for TWO people … and the best part? We’re giving away TWO of these packages thanks to the fine folks at Tourism Kelowna!

We all know that Kelowna is an AMAZING place to be in the summer but what we seem to forget is how INCREDIBLE it is throughout the winter as well!! It’s honestly, the PERFECT winter getaway, in my humble opinion! I’ll tell you why …

You can take a day trip to ski Big White Ski Resort’s Okanagan Champagne Powder during the day (or if skiing and snowboarding isn’t your thing, you can also skate or snowshoe!). Big White Ski Resort is only an hour away from downtown Kelowna!! Once you’re wrapped up there you can enjoy a magical winter wine tour at one of Kelowna’s 25 wineries that are open throughout the winter (see why I love this place?? lol!), and then warm up with a delicious meal at one of Kelowna’s many farm to table restaurants!!

I’ll list ALL of the incredible details below but it just so happens to include a stay at the Delta Grand which is one of my preferred hotels in Kelowna … plus, even if you don’t live in the surrounding area, no worries, Kelowna is SUPER easy to get to considering we have an international airport … trust me, I’ve visited this airport mannnyyyyy times!!! LOL!

    Love Kelowna!!!! Thanks Team Jilly!! Good Luck everyone!!! So much fun

  3. Mark says:

    Hi Jillian,

    Your giveaways are so awesome! My wife and I have been entering everyday. When we came across this one, my wife and I had the same thing on our minds. We both joked and said I wish the giveaway was 3 night stay at Delta Grand and my reversal surgery to have a baby all paid for. Now that would be the best Kelowna VIP Experience for us!

    Sorry if this is TMI, but before I met my wife I got a vasectomy (didn’t realize a reversal would cost thousands of dollars). It’s way too expensive to get it done here in Vancouver, but we found a doctor In Kelowna that will do it $3000 cheaper. I wish by next Christmas my wife and I will have a baby or a have baby on the way. We both just turned 38, I feel like we’re running out of time.

    If we win this one, any chance we can swap all the other stuff (ski, wine, etc) for the surgery instead ?
