It can pretty tough to shop for people who love wine because more often than not when they see that fantastic bottle of Nebbiolo or the perfect set of stemware, they just go ahead and buy it for themselves. However, giving the perfect gift doesn’t always have to be a guessing game.
Because all of our friends are obsessed with wine, we actually have a lot of experience in this area. Through the years, we’ve discovered five foolproof gifting solutions for that special oenophile in your life.
No matter how much you’re looking to spend this holiday season, here are five essential gifts for the wine lover who has everything.
Hilarious, unisex, and more affordable than having a pizza delivered, these Bring Me Wine Socks are the ultimate vino-inspired triple threat. Whether you’re desperate for a white elephant gift or need a stocking stuffer for Aunt Carolyn and Uncle Brian, these are a foolproof choice.
HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPAGNE STOPPER – FOR THE CHAMPAGNE OBSESSED
This Heavyweight Champagne Stopper is a gadget we often describe as life-changing. We love drinking bubbles but can’t stand it when they go flat. This restaurant-quality stopper keeps all types of sparkling wine fresh for longer.
CERAMIC WINE BOTTLE COASTER – FOR THE FASHIONABLE ENTERTAINER
Made in New York by one of our favorite potters, this ceramic wine bottle coaster is a fantastic gift with a personal touch. Each piece is hand-thrown and hand-glazed, meaning each coaster will have its own unique finish.
THE EXPERTS WINE LOG – FOR THE SERIOUS TASTER
We’ve used many notepads and journals to keep track of our tasting notes, but few have come close to this Expert’s Wine Log. This handmade wine tasting journal is crafted with beautiful top-grain cowhide, and the pre-filled pages give you the prompts and outlet to remember the good (and maybe not so good) bottles you’ve sipped along the way.
GEOMETRIC CRYSTAL DECANTER – FOR THE MODERN OENOPHILE
Every wine lover should have a decanter. While there are plenty of decanters on the market, we’ve found that this Geometric Crystal Decanter is one of the most beautiful and creative ways to decant your wine. Its faceted sides help aerate the wine faster. Plus, the angles of the lead-free crystal refract light, creating a glistening effect on your table.
