With the holiday season quickly approaching, we’re rounding up a list of wine connoisseur gifts, so you can find something wine-derful for the wine lovers in your life! Whether they’re a true wine aficionado, or just think they are (insert wink face), we’ve got an idea for everyone on your list.
From red to white, to rose, to the sparkling varieties, the wine options are endless! Treat the true oenophiles in your life to something a little more special than just a bottle of their favorite red from the local liquor store. Adding a personal touch of something to accompany their wine will show how much you care about them and their interests.
Wine Gift Baskets
If you’re looking for one-stop shopping, we’ve got you covered with our Wine Gift Baskets. They’re all 100% handcrafted in our facility and are delivered on time to the recipient, with a personalized message. Get as gourmet and fancy as you like with how many ingredients are in your basket, and choose from a vast selection of premium wines. There are selections with Red Wine & Dark Chocolate and gift baskets full of Champagne and Truffles. What’s great about those two choices, is that you’re able to select the bottle of wine to go in them, based on the tastes of the connoisseur you’re gifting to. If you want to send a gift to someone you can’t be with at the Holidays – this is the perfect option.
Personalized Wine Glasses
Gifting a few crystal wine glasses is an excellent idea, but taking it to the next level with personalization will take your gift over the top. There are so many options out there, to add engravings, etching and even photos to wine glasses, that there’s no need to gift just plain wine glasses anymore. Add on a clever saying to the glasses (Wine a bit, you’ll feel better!) or just adding someone’s initials adds a personal touch – plus, nobody can sneak away with your wine glasses.
There are so many different accessories out on the market to make the wine drinking experience just that much better. From openers, to aerators, to plugs, to pourers, to carriers and glass markers – it’s hard to know where to begin! Keep this in mind: The corkscrew may be the most important of Wine Connoisseur Gifts, because without it – your wine may be virtually inaccessible! Plus, it never hurts to have an extra, to keep in the car, your purse or golf bag!
Drink markers make an excellent hostess gift – and can be used right away at the party. Drink markers attach to the bottom of your wine glass so you’re able to tell your wine glasses from the other wine drinkers at the party. Most often they’re a cute charm for the stem of the glass, or they suction cup to the base of the glass. They even make pens specific for glass, which are washable, allowing you to write your personalized messages right on the glasses.
A Wine Subscription Service
Subscription services aren’t just for the gym or magazines anymore, and unlike that gym membership you’ve had since 1995, this is probably something that you’ll use! (We Kid!) Wine subscription services allow handpicked wines or flights of wine to be delivered to your house based on your personal preferences. These can arrive on a weekly or monthly basis and are available from a number of vendors.
Meat & Cheese Platters
Believe it or not, when choosing a gift for a wine lover, it might be best to skip the wine all together! By gifting something like one of our Meat & Cheese Platters, you’re gifting them something that will pair excellently with a bottle of wine of their choice! Take the guesswork out of what kind of wine they like, and select something that goes with a bottle of wine they already have!
Our Gourmet Meat & Cheese Sampler – Deluxe boasts a carefully selected assortment of artisan meats and cheeses, as well as gourmet crackers. The Artisan Meat & Cheese Platter contains creamy cheeses, freshly baked crackers and a variety of antipasto items that will pair excellently with a bottle of wine.
We’re willing to bet that wine lovers love to cook with wine – and sometimes they even add it to the food! Ha! Gifting them a cookbook specific to cooking with wine will allow them to showcase their love for wine and their vino knowledge. They can make recipes with wine and also pair the dishes from the cookbook with bottles from their collection.
