We recommend getting them things to amplify their favorite drinks. From specialty glassware to bottle thermometers, these are our top gifts and gadgets for people who love wine, beer, and spirits.

FOR THE WINE LOVERS

Le Creuset Waiters Corkscrew

Best Wooden Corkscrew
When it comes to a corkscrew, at the end of the day the only things that matter are that it opens your bottle quickly, efficiently, and it’s always ready for action. That’s why we’ll always go up to bat for this restaurant style, double hinged corkscrew by Leaving Creuset. Made with stainless steel and a luxurious, wooden handle, this corkscrew will become your new best friend opening bottles in just a few quick turns.

The Aficionado’s Wine Thermometer


To really taste a wine for all it can offer, it’s extremely important to serve it at the appropriate temperature. More often than not serving wine at room temperature is too warm and straight out of the fridge is way too cold. Thankfully, a wine thermometer is an easy and inexpensive way to keep track of your vino’s temperature. We love this thermometer specifically because it doesn’t use batteries like many others on the market and easily fits on regular 750mL bottles. Plus, you’ll always know what temperature your wine should be at with its handy guidelines.

The Expert’s Wine Log

This wine journal, though, has beautiful raw construction, a handcrafted leather cover, and fields to document all the important information, including the label. The perfect gift for those hoping to do a deeper dive into wine, and possibly start a wine career.
