Medford, OR. -- Many shoppers are using local Cyber Monday shipping deals to send gifts across the country, rather than buy for themselves.

Lloyd Pederson's son lives in Washington. He says the local Cyber Monday shipping deals are too good to beat. 

"It's a way to get in contact with people you know, and give them a taste of the Rogue Valley," says Pederson. 

Roxy Ann Winery says Pederson isn't the only shopper using Cyber Monday to ship wine to other states. They say many people take advantage of the discount because shipping can be more expensive than the wine itself.

"People want to share their local wine with their friends, with their family," says Brenda Walden Pine, the Tasting Room Manager at Roxy Ann Winery. 

Across town at Lillie Belle Chocolates, they're seeing this trend too. 

"A lot of the orders that we're getting are not for the people buying them, they're gifts," says Jeff Shepherd at Lillie Belle Chocolates. 

Roxy Ann Winery and Lillie Belle Chocolates have been doing Cyber Monday for years. They say they have a big following online, and the deals are for more than just locals.

"We have thousands of followers and people that don't live here to take advantage of the in-store discount that we do every year. So we put it online, and we're really busy," says Shepherd. 

Roxy Ann Winery says the more out-of-town sales the better. 

"Any way that we can drive a sale is important, and to get our local products out throughout the United States," says Pine. 

For many shoppers, being able to buy onbline and ship a gift makes it easier during the holidays. 

"I don't have to travel up there to get it to him," says Pederson.
