Give Them a Taste of Lake George Complete With Fun Accessories at Adirondack Winery
What You'll Find: Adirondack Winery not only has an unparalleled selection of wines to choose from as gifts (including the cranberry-infused, seasonal Red Carriage) but a ton of wine-related accessories and other goodies: tumblers with festive sayings like "I'm Dreaming of a Wine Christmas," logo ornaments, wine slushy mixes, and more, including 1- 2- and 3-bottle wine gift baskets. You can order online, but they will carry some fun items in the store that they don't have available through their website, so try to visit in person if you can!

Treat Yourself to a Mini Getaway (And Get Your To-Do List Done at the Same Time!)
If you're able to visit these stores in person and take some time for yourself to get away from it all - while still being productive and getting your holiday shopping done - we have a couple of lodging suggestions:
Country Inn & Suites by Radisson is situated in Queensbury right next to the Great Escape. This hotel is centrally located between Lake George Village and the shops that are in Queensbury and Glens Falls.
This Holiday Inn Express & Suites is right next to the highway in Queensbury, so you'll have easy access to head north to the Village and Bolton Landing. They're about 10 minutes from Glenwood Manor Antiques and Close 2 UR Heart, and 4 minutes from The Silo.
