Altoona's cookie bouquets add a touch of sweetness to already special occasions by bundling 14 colorful, individually wrapped cookies into one scrumptious bundle. Each baked bunch arrives on the recipient's doorstep bursting with a rainbow of eye-catching hues, complete with a chic bow, basket, and a heartfelt note from its birth oven. Hands unwrap the candy-colored rounds to reveal the dessert staples in a single flavor such as sugar, chocolate chip, peanut butter, or ginger. For an additional cost (not covered by today's Groupon), buyers can further accessorize their cookie cluster with mylar balloons, stuffed animals, or clumps of broccoli to render them Santa-proof.

Sack races, hayrides, campfires, and other autumnal activities surround Pumpkinville Corn Maze, but those roaming the stalks might not be aware of them. Stretching up to 20 acres, the fourth-generation corn and soybean farm's maze often keeps adventurers twisting and turning for an hour, sometimes longer early in the season. Besides navigating to the maze's end, each trek doubles as a scavenger hunt with at least 20 challenges, such as getting a scarecrow to swear off scaring crows. Especially intrepid visitors can even enter the maze until 8 p.m., where only flashlights and the glowing moon guide them through the hushed labyrinth. Meanwhile, guests 10 and under can traverse the mini-maze in about 15 minutes for one dollar.
When the Putz family moved into its home in 1987, it discovered a trove of berries growing on the property. The family first picked the berries for homemade jellies, then Tony Putz began experimenting with winemaking. The hobby soon became a full-time job, and La Vida Loca Winery was born. The award-winning winery produces a variety of sweet, semisweet, dry, and cooking wines with hints of cinnamon, cherries, and blackberries. The winery also hosts numerous events, including dinners on an expansive deck that overlooks the vineyard, which was carefully bedecked to befit any wedding reception or divorce proceeding.
Grape Escape Winery’s name isn’t simply a boozy play on a Steve McQueen movie. For its vintners, planting their own vineyard signified the chance to break free from the typical work routine and spend more time together. From their 8 acres of grapes—supplemented by pickings from 15 other Iowa vineyards—the crafters fill their casks with 13 varietals ranging from sweet to dry. Visitors to the winery may saunter through the pastoral rows of vines, savor tastes of a red, white, or blush over the fire pit, or, on Saturday nights in summer, take in a movie right in the vineyard.
