Do you have a wine lover on your holiday gift list? Before you head to the nearest wine shop to purchase yet another bottle of wine, consider some of the more unique gifts you can give your friend or family member. Your thoughtfulness will show, and you can always pair the gift with a bottle of wine or an invitation to visit a winery in Napa Valley.
Below are some of our top recommendations for holiday gifts for the wine lover in your life.
Wine-infused salts allow you to add the essence of wine to your favorite dishes. They are available in different varieties depending on the brand you choose. This set from Uncommon Goods features Rosé Rosemary, Pinot Noir & Fennel and Chardonnay Lemon & Thyme. A little pinch goes a long way in transforming food with bold flavors.
Electric Wine Opener
Every wine lover needs an electric opener. These gadgets open wine bottles with maximum ease and speed. They range in price, so you can find something within your budget. Not only are electric wine openers sleek and stylish for at-home use, but also they can be brought along for summer picnics and music festivals.
Red Wine Stain Remover
For under $10, this is a great add-on gift or stocking stuffer. We’ve probably all needed a red wine remover at some point in our lives! These sprays are small and can fit into any purse. They can also be used on other red stains such as blood, fruit punch, ink, sauces and red medicine.
Bathtime Wine Holder
Many people enjoy having a glass of wine while they take a bubble bath, but where to put the wine is the question. Thanks to wine holders for the bath, this is no longer a problem. There are many styles available, ranging from suction cup holders to wooden bath caddies. And, if your recipient prefers showers, that’s no problem. These handy wine holders are available for showers, too!
Personalized Wine Glass
Give your recipient a personalized wine glass to add to their collection. These custom glasses are elegant and attractive, and they can be personalized with a logo, initials, name or artwork of your choice. Choose a set of glasses or mix and match with stainless steel wine tumblers, stemless glasses and traditional glasses.
Custom Wine Tasting Set
If your recipient enjoys drinking all types of wine, consider a custom wine tasting set. You can personalize the flight board with the name of your choice. Included with the flight board are 4-5 small wine glasses for wine tastings. Complete the gift with a bottle or two of your favorite wines.
Monthly Wine Subscription
Wine connoisseurs rave about monthly wine subscriptions because they’re able to try new wines on a regular basis. Not all wine clubs are the same, however, so do your research before deciding on one. Look for clubs that offer a great selection of highly-rated wines. Some of our top picks include Nakedwines.com, WINC Wine Club and Premier Wine Club.
Hopefully our gift list has given you some ideas on what to give a wine lover for Christmas this year.
