35 Best Gifts for Wine Lovers
Whether they prefer a bottle of red or a sip of sparkling, these are the best gifts for wine lovers.
Whether you enjoy a glass with dinner or a bottle after a long week, there’s a wine to satisfy every palate and personality. But if you’ve got a friend, family member, lover, or coworker who can’t get enough of the luxurious libation, consider these wine-inspired tools, fashion pieces, novelty items, and accessories as perfect gifts for the holidays. In fact, they’re almost as good as wine itself.
Check out 35 of our favorite gifts for wine lovers, so you can get a head start fleshing out that Nice List.
Be the winemaker and/or grower you always wanted to be, but without the stress and hassle of owning an actual vineyard. The Viticulture board game will test your wine and business knowledge so you can gain bragging rights among your fellow wine-loving friends. Enjoy with wine, of course, to make the experience go full meta.
If that Viticulture board game doesn’t satisfy your desire to be a winemaker, you can concoct your own batch at home with this pinot grigio wine making kit. Of course, this may inspire a gift recipient to start their own vineyard, so make it very clear that you bear no responsibility in their new business endeavor.
Cheese and wine go together like wine charms and wine, so it only makes sense to morph the two into a set of cheese wine charms that are the perfect conversation starters at any soiree. Be sure to set out actual cheese, though, or your guests will leave disappointed.
Don’t be sour grapes — the life of your favorite bottle can be preserved and extended with a VacuVin. The handy tool slows down the oxidation process by extracting the air from the opened bottle. It then reseals it with a reusable rubber stopper. Magic? Not quite. Impressive? You bet.
Give your wrists a break with this eight-piece set featuring an electric bottle opener that uncorks with the press of a button. This is a rare instance where the benefit is the same as the drawback: It’s entirely too easy to open a bottle of wine at a moment’s notice.
It’s always wine-o-clock somewhere and tasks like showering are not going to stand in the way of you and your adult beverage. This is a bath time essential, complete only with jazz music, candles, and anything to wash off the stench of an annoyingly long and busy week.
These stemless glasses are bar cart must-haves with their ability to make your wine taste smoother and silkier. It’s also entirely too much fun to see the wine filter through the center contraption, making it a perfect gift for anyone who’s easily entertained.
You’re going to need a surface to set your drink on and these clever and witty coasters take the overdone “Live, Laugh, Love” sentiment to greater heights.
Sulfites and histamines begone with this handy wine purifier that will remove artificial preservatives without altering your wine’s chemistry. This means potentially less severe headaches in the a.m. when you’re reaching for that bottle of Tylenol in the nightstand.
Frankly, one glass is never enough, but there is a guilt associated with sipping straight from the bottle (whomp, whomp). Now you can camouflage your preferred serving size by pouring a bottle directly into this big boy and enjoying a night on the couch with pizza and a onesie, sans judgment. Cheers!
Sometimes it’s easiest to just gift someone an entire gift basket of wine and wine-adjacent treats and Harry & David’s Sommeliers Choice option has everything a wine lover needs with cookies, cheese spread, olives, crackers, and, of course, two bottles of the good stuff.
If a friend or colleague is always searching for their next favorite bottle, consider a Winc wine subscription that starts at four bottles/month. It’s a wonderful way to taste vino from regions you may not have even considered, which supports small businesses in the most scrumptious way possible.
Accidents happen and sometimes they come in the form of red wine all over a brand-new rug or couch. Before sending your houseguest a bill for the damages, opt for a bottle of Wine Away to remedy the unfortunate situation. Be sure to also pick your jaw off the floor after you see it power through even the toughest of stains.
Elevate your wine with ice for a refreshing and summertime departure from the norm. Frose, Sangria, and Strawberry Basil Lemonade round out the canister trio that will have your friends thinking you’re a master mixologist and not just an amateur bartender who only knows how to open and pour a bottle.
French oak is an undeniable splurge, but a necessary one…at least when it comes to these adorable bottle-shaped serving boards that demand the fruit, cured meats, and cheeses. It’s a wonderful gift for the wine-lover who presumably has it all. (They don’t.)
If you’ve got bottles aplenty but little storage space, now may be the time to invest in a wine fridge to keep that vino organized and fresh. And at less than $400, this sleek Home Depot model will more than pay for itself with adjustable racks so you can store more than just your favorite beverage.
