When it comes to gifting wine, sometimes a simple bottle with a bow doesn’t cut it. The holidays are an opportunity to uncork a bit of creativity and select a vino-themed present that offers more than just a quick pour and that oh-so-coveted buzz. There is so much more to wine, after all, like food pairings, tools, and variety (so many grapes!) that make the imbibing experience more memorable. Keeping this in mind, we’ve rounded up 19 of our favorite wine baskets, bundles, boxes, advent calendars, and more so that the special wine-o in your life will feel like you’ve really gone out of your way to make them feel appreciated. Check out our picks below and cheers to a holiday season without the stress of cluelessly perusing the aisles of your local liquor store.

For the friend who enjoys their coffee just as much as their vino, this Philz Coffee and Wine Gift Set offers the best of both worlds with bottles and brews that actually complement each other when sipped simultaneously. Consume with caution, though, as one bev is an upper and the other is a downer, much like the Grinch’s personality at any point during the day.

Germany is famous for its abundance of festive Christmas markets, but if a flight to Deutschland isn’t in the (holiday) cards this year, opt for a gift box featuring delicacies like smoked ammerlander cheese, herring filets, bratwurst, and Schlunder liqueur cake.

12 Nights of Wine certainly sounds more appealing than 12 pipers piping and this box will have anyone feel like a kid on Christmas morning with a dozen hand-picked selections from Italy, France, Spain, and the good ol’ U.S. of A. The collection includes whites, rosés, and even chillable reds so that you can simply pop this bad boy in the fridge and enjoy a drink every night of the holiday season.

Is there anything more relaxing than sipping a glass of red next to a fireplace while listening to Christmas music? All signs point to no, which is why this Fireside Reds Holiday Bundle from Robert Mondavi is a cozy-time must-have.

Pass the cheese, please, and everything else on this Boarderie charcuterie set. Wine is not included, but the bites of cheese, dried fruit, nuts, and olives are so scrumptious that you may just forget about needing a sip of something to complement them.

There is always one indecisive person on Santa’s Nice List who may be ever-so-slightly difficult to shop for. Enter Firstleaf, which offers a nine-bottle assortment that will make a very special someone very happy. But if you don’t want to risk it and would prefer that this difficult — er — finicky human shop for themselves, gift cards are also available. After all, your time is better spent downing eggnog and roasting chestnuts by an open fire.

We love a bottle that can double as home decor after it’s finished and these gold decaled beauties are practically begging to hold a single rose or taper candle. They’re also a nod to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, so fans of the movie who adore a “fun old-fashioned family Christmas” will certainly find delight in the references and graphics that adorn it.

For many people, football is just as important as any ol’ December holiday. And this football-shaped sausage and cheese gift is precisely what a tailgate or at-home viewing party needs to take a tabletop spread from drab to fab. All that’s missing is a favorite bottle,..but with cheap beer and questionable mixed drinks flowing, an inexpensive wine should certainly suffice.
