Get Your Gift Geeky On With Our Wine Card Giveaway!

Vinted on April 23, 2013 binned in giveaways

This week, I’m teaming up with to give away a set of ten wine-themed cards (valued at around $30)!

As will surprise none of you who know me, several of the cards push the envelope (ha!… okay… sorry…) on safe-for-workness, all are wine-themed, and all of them are amusing. The pack includes handfuls of funny birthday cards, humorous get-well-soon cards and a smattering of cards that could be used for Valentine’s Day or as greeting cards. Basically, you’ll find something in the pack that fits the bill for one (or more) of your wine-geeky friends or family.

The entire Card Pack can be viewed at the following links: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (yes, I know those are small, but I wanted to squeeze them in without making the post two thousand words; look, do you want a chance to win something or not?!?).

Here’s how the giveaway will work:

  • Check out the cards using the links above, and let us know in the comments which is your fave (and why).
  • On Tuesday, April 30 at 8PM ET (5PM PT), I will randomly choose a winner from the commenters.

It’s that simple; but you also need to be a fully-evolved home sapiens living in the continental U.S. who is of legal drinking age to be eligible to win (sorry, Cro-Magnons)!.

As for my fave to kick this off (and no, I’m not eligible to win): it’s a bit crude of me (ah, you expected nothing less!), but I’ve got to go with this one as my personal favorite (there’s just a part of it that, deep down, actually rings poignantly true… in a sick sort of way).

Cheers – and good luck!

    Number 8 – Because drinking wine is fun and it makes people happy and let's face it after several glasses….or bottles… are having even more fun…..are even more happy and everyone gets hotter! It's a love fest.

    • 1WineDude

      Charlene – thanks. :) I can also confirm that the more wine that people drink, the better my band sounds live…

      • charlene

        …..and so I'm taking it that people are putting their "wine earphones on?" Enjoy the day!

        • 1WineDude

          Charlene – anything to stop the noise of my incessant wine banter, I suppose :-)

    They all rock and are very true.. However I must pick #6. Perception is the only thing that can get one through 9 months of pregnancy! Although, I saw a study recently that it may* be ok for a woman to drink wine while pregnant.. You may have seen this, check it out.


    • 1WineDude

      Billy – operative word is “may” I suppose…

      • Billy Powell

        Yeah, a little too uncertain to risk it no doubt. Which is why the perception of water being wine works well!

        • 1WineDude

          Trying to recall how we approached it when Kerri was pregnant with Lorelai; I think she steered totally clear of alcohol once we found out she was pregnant, and then very late in the pregnancy she sipped a partial glass on occasion. Of course, now that Lorelai is a demanding five year old, we often make up for that lost drinking time :). Wow, I did NOT expect to be having this conversation today… pregnancy and exploding ping pong balls… wonder what’s coming next!??

          • Billy Powell

            Haha! Great convo! I dont have a 5 year old but by the fact that I know a few I can sympathize. Cheers!

            • 1WineDude

              Billy – ohhhh, nooooo…. you have NO idea! :)

  • Rckymtngal

    hello 1 Wine dude, I loved #7, I laughed out loud. After the week I had last week, I need to get $h_Tfaced! If I was to write a book the title would describe my week last week. Exploding ping pong balls, ex-marine snipers and under-cover armed guards in my office:) Thank goodness for wine!!

    • 1WineDude

      Rckymtngal – oddly, I find myself most fascinated by the exploding ping pong balls in that scenario… not sure what that says about me…!

  • @WineWonkette

    I like #1 the best but it should really have Thea Dwelle's picture on it. #2, I would definitely give to Joe Power. I cruised on into some of the other cards after looking at the wine-related ones and "Fake it" had me ROTFLMAO. btw, in honor of my birthday April 30th you should not-so-randomly draw my name for a second pack ;)

    • 1WineDude

      @WineWonkette – I like the mashup with wine bloggers! As for selecting you, we shall pray to the gods of randomness :).

  • Beth

    Time To Drink Humor Greeting Card, #9, because I am working what seems like a million part-time jobs right now, pulled in lots of directions! At least one of my jobs is in the wine biz! Cheers!

    • 1WineDude

      Thanks, Beth. That means that at least one of those jobs is in the most awesome industry in the world! :-)

  • Jim

    I like #2 because I do that a lot.

    • 1WineDude

      Jim – you’re in good company…

  • Rhonda

    I choose #4 because I too love wine, unconditionally.

    • 1WineDude

      Rhonda – quite sporting of you; my wine love comes with conditions! :)

  • Drew Matich

    #7 because it made me laugh immediately. And it's true.

    • 1WineDude

      :-) Thanks, Drew.

  • 1WineDude

    Thanks, everyone – we have a winner!

    Billy Powell is our randomly-chosen winning commenter, and he will be receiving email instructions from me forthwith, I forswear.


  • david

    this is great but what kind of envelopes do you need for these cards ?

    • 1WineDude

      Paper? :-P
