We all know someone whose day isn't complete until they've had a chance to unwind with a glass of wine. Naturally, it goes without saying that a wine-based holiday gift will be right up their alley. But with so many different varietals, brands, and accessories on the market, how does one choose? We've rounded up 12 gifts for wine lovers that your recipient will most definitely raise a glass to.
How to Shop for Wine Lovers
While there's one very obvious gift you can give a wine lover (cough, cough, wine), if you're looking for something a little outside the box, we've got some useful tips for you.
Opt for something practical: For a gift you can feel confident they'll actually get some use out of, go for something you know they'd pull out the next time they uncork a bottle. From aerating wine glasses ($50, Uncommon Goods) to chillers ($23.99, Amazon) that will keep bottles of white nice and cool all night long, there's a functional wine gift out there for everyone.
Opt for something funny: If your giftee is a wine drinker with a good sense of humor, you can always opt for something cheeky. Between endless pairs punny socks ($8.95, Amazon) and wine-inspired coloring books ($5.99, Amazon), the options are truly endless!
Opt for something kitschy: Looking for something unique? Get kitschy with an at-home winemaking kit ($60, Uncommon Goods) or a cheese plate that's made from recycled bottles ($24, Uncommon Goods) — the perfect companion for their next charcuterie night!
Opt for something classic: When in doubt, why not go to the root of their obsession with a great bottle of wine? If you know their favorite types, it's easy to pick up a bottle or two. If you're not sure what they like, however, a wine subscription box ($39/month, Winc) is a great way to play to their tastebuds with an assortment of wines to taste and enjoy.
