Gift ideas for wine lovers
What better gift to send, when you can’t celebrate with the one you love, than a bottle of wine delivered right into their letterbox? Choose the wine and a card for the occasion. The unique shape of the bottle fits right into their letterbox. You can even give them a 3 month subscription so they will get a new bottle each month.
Then have some sweet treats sent to their letterbox to go with the wine. They can sip wine with chocolates, macaroons, or brownies.
Wine gifts for home brewing
Your wine enthusiast has probably gone on tastings, possibly joined a wine club, and has all the basic wine accoutrements. Maybe it is time they start brewing their own. For the beginner, get them a kit with all the equipment and the ingredients needed to make their own wine. All they will need to have on hand is sugar. This kit comes with ingredients to make a fruit wine. However, once they have this kit you can get them additional ingredient sets for other occasions, such as dry white, Cabernet Sauvignon, or Merlot.
They will also need a set of wine bottles to put their homemade brew in.
A tasting and tour for two makes a great anniversary gift or Valentine’s gift for a couple. Choose from locations all over the UK.
For a birthday gift for someone who has just come of age you can get a tour for 6 people, available in London or Surrey. If they prefer going it alone, several experiences for one are available. Some of the experiences for one are actual workshops or include lunch. Of course, if you like this gift option, you can also buy an extra one for two to enjoy.
Wine gifts for home tastings
A mixed case of wine is a great idea for someone who would like to do home tastings. This mixed case contains reds and whites from several different countries.
As a luxury gift for wine lovers, get several flight sampler sets. Each comes with four decanter glasses that sit on a wooden paddle. Use a chalk pen to write what each wine is. Then use wine tasting notes to keep track of what everyone is tasting.
As a novelty gift for someone who likes trying different wines, get a 100 wines scratch off poster.
Unusual gifts for wine lovers
This makes a great anniversary or birthday gift for someone you love. Personalise a message for the label. The label will contain a code for a Spotify playlist. Choose from love songs, blues and jazz, guitar hits, or relaxing piano to name a few. For a small additional fee you can choose one song of your choice instead of a playlist. This is a great idea for a wedding gift or even for a Valentine proposal!.
For someone who likes brain teasers, give a wine jail. This wooden puzzle locks the bottle inside until the owner can figure out how to open it. However, it doesn’t include a bottle of wine, so pick up a bottle of white to lock in the puzzle before giving the gift.
Wine gifts for winter
When the weather gets chilly it is time for some mulled wine. Give a gift set complete with a bottle of wine, spices, and mugs for a romantic Valentine gift or as a gift for Christmas.
As a stocking stuffer, give a tin with several spice pouches and directions for making mulled wine. Then choose a bottle of red to go with it. However, if you are buying for someone you don’t think will enjoy making mulled wine but would like drinking some, get a bottle of mulled wine that is already made.
Gifts for wine snobs
For the true wine connoisseur, get them a wine fridge to keep white wines chilled. A real wine snob will want to keep a large selection on hand and will need a large fridge that fits under the counter. This one holds 28 bottles and has an LED light. It also comes with 2 keys to keep out young ones.
For those who want something a bit smaller, you can get a countertop wine fridge which holds 14 bottles.
For someone who is a bit of an art snob as well, get them this artsy bottle holder. It only holds one bottle of wine, but it becomes a modern art sculpture with a chain holding a wine bottle in mid air. It will definitely spark conversations.
Fun wine gifts for the road
Time spent together is the best gift. Plan a romantic picnic for that someone special. This backpack has a place to hold a bottle of wine and a cooler compartment for food. It comes with a picnic blanket, plates, utensils, and of course a corkscrew. This makes a great Valentine Day gift or a special anniversary date.
For a day at the shore, get a beach bag with a hidden compartment for wine. They can pack their beach supplies plus two bottles of wine in this beach wine tote. What about if they are going on a road trip? No problem, this wine bag for travel fits six bottles of wine in separated insulated compartments. It has wheels for easy transport from the car to wherever they will be staying.
Wine themed gifts
They can play this fun wine trivia game at their next party. Up to 8 people can play. This makes a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer.
Or get a fun wine themed puzzle for them to complete. For another unique wine gift, give a 3D wooden wine bottle jigsaw puzzle. This novelty gift only has 13 pieces, but it will make a lovely decoration for the home once completed.
Unique wine gifts
Serving wine in a carafe is supposed to enhance aroma and taste. This swan decanter will definitely be a conversation piece.
Wine themed gifts to wear
I love these shirts. I have a black one with sparkles that I got years ago when visiting a winery. It always sparks conversations whenever I wear it.
Inexpensive gifts for wine lovers
Wine charms are great for figuring out whose glass is whose when using stemmed wine glasses. For stemless glasses, get some wine glass identifiers that can be placed on the rim of the glass. Another option for identifying drinks is to use markers that can easily write on glass or ceramic. These are non-toxic and easily wash off.
If you are buying a gift for someone crafty, they may want to make their own wine charms. Begin by getting them a set of charm rings and a pack of charms. Then they can pick and choose which ones they want to use, or use several together.
Novelty wine gifts
Any Harry Potter fan will love these!
For Disney fans, get a set of Beauty and the Beast long stemmed glasses, worthy of a princess. Star Wars fans will feel the force when using Darth Vader and StormTrooper glasses. For an extra special Valentine’s Day, get a pair of rose wine glasses. You can propose by dropping a ring into the glass. You are sure to get a YES!
Accessory gifts for wine lovers
An aerator assists in breaking down tannins which leads to a better tasting glass of wine. The filter helps eliminate sediment.
Another useful accessory is a wine stopper. Nobody wants to try to get the cork back into a bottle of wine once it’s opened. These elegant stoppers will take care of that problem.
Also, I hate when we are having a date night and we have to go back to the refrigerator to refill our wine. An iceless chiller works like a thermos to surround the wine bottle and keep it cold without the drippy water you get with an ice bucket.
Gifts about wine
While most board books are meant for children, this one is not. It is a scratch and sniff guide to wine tasting. This is a must have gift for a new wine drinker.
For the chef, get a wine cookbook. Now they will be able to create delicious meals cooked with wine. Hopefully, giving them this book will earn you an invitation for dinner!
For the history buff, get them A History of the World in 6 Glasses. This book tells how human history was shaped by our drinks, starting with beer, then wine, and so on. It is a fascinating read, as well as educational. My son actually had this as required reading for a World Geography class.
Useful presents for wine lovers
These are great for modern wine drinkers. Electric openers open bottles quickly and effortlessly. My neighbour has one of these and she loves it. She was having a hard time opening bottles the old fashioned way due to arthritis. Now she can enjoy her favourite drink again.
On the other hand, sometimes I am not good with using technology for simple tasks. I find that a wing corkscrew works well for me. This even has a beer bottle opener on the end.
If you are looking for a funny wine gift, this set of 3 red men comes with a corkscrew and wine stoppers. However, these are for adult eyes only.
Gifts for wine lovers
What goes great with wine? Cheese of course. Have a cheese board customised with their names for a housewarming or hostess gift.
Wine gifts for men
These handmade wine dispensers make great gifts for guys. They work as liquor dispensers too. Get him a nice bottle of port to use with it.
Recycled wine gifts
Get the gift of mood lighting with an upcycled wine bottle containing fairy lights.
You can also get a wine bottle candle.
Must have presents for wine lovers
What do wine drinkers need? Why, glassware of course! A set of six would be a nice start. I recommend ones with thin stems because they fit better in racks made for holding wine glasses. We have a wooden hanger that hangs from the ceiling. Some of our glasses with thicker stems don’t fit. Wine connoisseurs know that one is supposed to hold the glass only by the stem to prevent hands from changing the temperature of the wine.
However, stemless glasses have become popular in recent years. My neighbour prefers these because she is less likely to knock over her glass. Also popular are insulated wine tumblers. With people trying to spend more time outdoors, these tumblers make sense. They have lids and straws to keep bugs out and are insulated, therefore keeping wine chilled even when temperatures rise.
Useful gifts for wine lovers
Wine lovers will need a place to store glasses and bottles of wine. While a wine fridge is a great choice for storing whites, blush, and sparkling wines, they will need a place for those reds they want to serve at room temperature. Also, what about the glasses? This cabinet looks elegant while storing up to 20 bottles of wine and several glasses. There is even a place for a decanter.
For those with limited space for furniture, wall or cabinet options are available for glass storage. Some can easily attach to shelves in cabinets they already have. You can also get shelf options to hang on the wall which can store bottles of wine and glasses.
I have limited cabinet and wall space at my house, so I like this rack that hangs from the ceiling. It holds numerous glasses, plus has space on top to store bottles. I think this gives an old world charm.
