12 Days of Christmas

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!

  1. 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 ?

  2. This is the ultimate prize package! Loved Big White the one time I’ve gone to snowboard in Kelowna and Quails Gate Winery is beautiful! Would love to stay in Delta Grand too and get the full experience. Thanks to Santa Jilly and Tourism Kelowna for the opportunity!

  3. You look so darn cute. But i think my eyes are playing tricks on me. Is your fly low?. ?
    Thank you for all your amazing giveaways. Love you Jilly.

  4. Jilly, your prizes this year are out of this world! But definitely in line with the star you have become. I’ve watched you ever since your first appearance on The Bachelor, and have loved seeing how you have grown and evolved. A proud Canadian! Wish there were more episodes of your life with your hubby and family (and dog, of course). I enjoyed it so much and would love to see more. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  5. I’m from Toronto and NEVER been anywhere else in Canada besides Quebec (how sad)….this looks so beautiful and would be amazing to visit! Thank you Jillian and team!!!

  6. OMG, just when I thought your prizes couldn’t get any more fantastic – along comes this one! WOW, thank you for this opportunity.

  7. Oh my Jillian you and your team have outdone yourselves. . Thanks so much for all your efforts. Have a very Merry Christmas with your sweet family. ?

  8. OMG! I love this one! We were going to bring the family there to ski over Christmas this year, but it did not work out for various reasons. We LOVE skiing in Canada and we would even bring our own skis and don’t need lessons! LOL. This would be a dream vacation!!!! crossing my fingers my name comes up!
    thank you for all you do!

  9. Literally was just talking to my partner about how amazing it would be if we were to take a ski trip to Canada!! Thank you Santa Jilly for the most amazing giveaways!!!

  11. Hi, my name is Cindee Chevalier. I think that I entered 3 days twice. I went to check to make sure that I’m following everyone on the correct sites. When I entered my email, I accidentally put in [email protected]. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you.

  13. So exciting !! I would love to win something special. All of these gifts are special and id be honored to be chosen. Have a very merry Christmas and a great new year. Thanks for the opportunity ❤

  14. Yes! Kelowna in the winter! Love it Jillian! My sister-in-law used to live in Kelowna. We would always stop there on our way to Vancouver, sun, snow, rain, whatever the weather, we love Kelowna as well. Good luck to everyone for this amazing prize!

  15. My parents live in assisted living up there and it would be so nice to go visit them. Fingers crossed ?? I win this !!

  16. A Canadian dream vacation for those living in a small Northern Canadian City. #singlemom#therapy#turning50in2019

  17. This is the most awesome giveaway yet!!! I hope I win this – maybe I can sneak a quick visit in with your parents, as I’ll be so close …

  18. Hey Jilly! So excited for the 12 days of Christmas! I was wondering, if you notify a winner, how long do they have to respond to you? I will be on vacation all next week and I will be unplugged! But what if I win?! Is there a time limit on when you need a response from the winners?

    Thanks so much! Xoxo

  19. On my husbands 60th we drove from Ontario to Tofino and on our way back home stopped in Kelowna for several days. Loved the wine tour and food. Would love to return for another birthday. ?

  20. Wanted to move to Kelowna a few yrs ago and totally loved it. Spent a week there just eating, shopping and driving to small towns. Loved it. Would love my husband to see where I keep talking about. Cheers all the way from Dieppe NB.

  21. Even though this would be a dream come true for me – to be able to give this to my mom – O.M.G!!! Fingers and toes crossed for this one!:D

  24. My boyfriend and I are thinking of moving to kelowna or Vernon in the spring!!! (Still undecided because my bf doesnt know the interior at all!) Oh my gosh i would LOSE IT if i won the kelowna experience one especially because my bf has never been there! Hes grown up on Vancouver island and I’m from kamloops! Fingers crossed!!! Merry Christmas everyone ! Jillian harris is the best!

  25. Fantastic giveaway!! Love Kelowna, it brings back so many awesome memories when my parents lived there.❤️ They’ve both since passed but I’d definitely take my husband up there to share that part of my life & show him why my Mom used to call it “Gods Country!”?

  26. Absolutely amazing!! Husband and I have been wanting to travel out west for ages!! We are tired of hearing how amazing it is from others, time for our turn! And this time we would
    Have our baby girl tag along for family memories ❤️❤️
