Is your best friend’s birthday, bridal shower or wedding anniversary coming up? Sure, you could always get this wine lover a bottle of chardonnay, but that’s so predictable! Think outside the bottle this time around and opt for something a little more creative.
Crystal Wine Glasses
Yes, you can drink wine out of any cup you want, but why not do it in style with genuine crystal wine glasses? Plus, you and your friends can recreate your favorite scene from Miss Congeniality.
Any wine connoisseur will tell you that the oxidation that occurs as liquid passes through an aerator helps to soften the flavor and release the aromas trapped within the wine. Using an aerator also means you can pour your glass right away instead of letting it breathe for a while after opening the bottle. This helps prevent wasting wine that you pour into a decanter but fail to finish in one sitting (which, we admit, is a pretty rare occurrence).
Wine Lover’s Deck of Cards
If you and your friends enjoy playing drinking games with wine, keep the theme going by using a deck of cards featuring wine facts. You’ll love sharing tidbits with each other and laughing about the obscure facts your wine-loving friends already know.
Outdoor Wine Glass & Bottle Holder
They say you shouldn’t cry over spilled wine – or is that milk? Gift your friend an outdoor wine holder, and all fears of tipping over a top-heavy glass will come to an end. It’s the perfect idea if your friend loves sipping merlot by the pool.
Wine Bottle Cooler
Your wine-loving friends will tell you it’s best to serve drinks slightly chilled. An effective way to achieve the ideal temperature (without the mess of melting ice cubes) is to set the bottle in a cylindrical soapstone or marble sleeve. The thermal mass of these stones keeps the wine at just the right temperature through dinner. Plus, it looks gorgeous sitting on the table.
Who says candy is only for kids? Buy or make your own lollipops using your friend’s favorite wine, from cabernet sauvignon to chardonnay to merlot. It’s the perfect way to get a buzz and sugar high all at once!
Red Wine Stain Remover
This one’s a bit of a gag gift, but if your friend is notorious for spilling wine, it could prove to be a lifesaver! Wine stain remover might actually work best as a gift when paired with a bottle of wine.
