It hasn’t been the best year for socialising, and that’s not likely to change for at least a few months yet.

In lieu of being able to hang out with loved ones in real-time, Spanish wine company Campo Viejo has come up with a rather interesting answer to lockdown loneliness.

The brand is offering free live-sized cardboard cutouts of friends and loved ones with orders, so you can (sort of) drink with friends again.

As of December 1, each purchase of Campo Viejo Rioja Tempranillo or Campo Viejo Viura-Tempranillo Blanco from will come with a complimentary cardboard cutout of whoever you want from your family or social circle.

All you need to do is upload your chosen picture and you’ll be sent the cutout within 48 hours.

Lucy Bearman, Brand Director from Campo Viejo, said: ‘For almost a year we’ve all been stuck at home missing our friends and family and whilst we’re glad everyone has been abiding by the rules, it hasn’t been fun.

‘We want to bring a little bit of joy to people as Christmas gets closer.

‘Having your best friend round for a glass of Campo Viejo wine is the perfect antidote to a glum weekend stuck at home!’

To make your order, complete with the free cardboard cutout, you need to pick at least one of the two £15 bottles of red or white on offer.

When you go to check out, you’ll be asked to provide a picture of the person you want the cutout to be of and how big you want it to be (up to 6’3″ tall and 2’3″ wide).

Buying a personalised cardboard cutout online usually costs upwards of £50,
