Not Your Usual Gifts for Wine Lovers
We all have that friend who is rarely seen without a glass of wine in their hands and has a cellar fully stocked with delicious bottles of drink. This gourmet connoisseur is sure to appreciate a wide variety of wine-related gifts and, of course, just about any bottle of well-chosen wine. Even if you don’t know the first thing about wine, wine country, or wineries, you can still select the perfect gift for your wine-loving friend. Have a look through our gift guides for wine lovers and you are sure to see the perfect present for your loved one.
Wine has a way of bringing people together, and many people have a group that they regularly enjoy the fruit of the vine with. Whether you are a part of such a group or not, it is likely that your wine-loving friend is. Help support their relationships with fun and unique wine-related gifts. Try a new bottle of wine, a fancy pourer, or some new trick for aerating the drink. Bring along a bottle of cheer to the next party you attend for this person—be it a birthday, going away, or graduation celebration. With wine lovers, you can never go wrong supporting their passion for the wine with some wine accessories.
If your best friend always has a glass of wine in hand, or your sibling is always taking you along on day trips to local wineries, you can be fairly certain that a wine-related gift will please them greatly. If you aren’t sure of their specific tastes in the wine itself, you can always support the habit of tasting sessions or high-quality wine accessories such as decanters and wine glasses. If they are more on the cutesy side, there are plenty of funny wine posters and coasters on the market.
Alternative Gifts: Ditch the Bottle and Get Them Something They Don't Expect
If you want to switch things up this year (or if not, let us try and convince you!) there are plenty of great ideas that still relate to wine that makes for a fantastic gift for a wine lover.
After all, you know that a wine drinker will always have wine on hand. However, there are some other items that they may not have that can enhance their wine drinking experience!
Not only will these gifts be great for a wine lover, but it’ll also be totally unexpected!
1. Tabletop wine cooler
This device holds one bottle of wine and keeps it chilled (but not too cold). This is perfect because it will keep your wine at the perfect temperature, and also keep it close by so that you don’t have to get up to refill your glass!
An aerator is an excellent idea for anyone appreciating wine! Aerating a bottle is an easy way to make it taste better - even more, inexpensive bottles. While you can always open a bottle early and have it sit open for a while before drinking, a better (and typically quicker) way to aerate the wine is to use an aerator.
The technology has improved a lot over the years, so even a more inexpensive aerator will make a difference with the wine you are drinking!
Sure, you can keep your wine in the bottle until you choose to drink it, but why not instead pour it into a decanter or carafe? These two items, similar in nature, also allow the liquid to breathe similar to the aeration process, but can also make for wonderful pieces of art as well.
While there are plenty of basic looking carafes and decanters, there are also many more that take on all sorts of wonderful shapes and sizes - and they make for great centerpieces at the dining room table!
4. Travel bag/glasses
Finally, have you ever wanted to pack up a lunch and have a picnic out at the park or the beach? Wanting to take some wine with you is a great idea, but not always easy to execute!
We think it is best to give a combo gift that includes a travel bag as well as some travel glasses. Trying to travel and enjoy wine outside with typical wine glasses can turn into a disaster really quickly.
Thankfully, there are plenty of wine travel bags and glasses designed for this very purpose!
No Need to Break the Bank
For many, sharing a bottle of wine with someone is a great way to bond. Opening a bottle during a nice meal or over the holidays makes for a great evening sure to be filled with memories that will last a lifetime (perhaps slightly fuzzy memories, but memories nonetheless!) Look through our wine lovers gift guide and see what you find- your gift is sure to become a staple in their home.
