You can have your wine in your favorite wine glass, but what about other fun accessories? While browsing around looking for a fun gift idea for my boyfriend's brother's wedding gift, I got sidetracked and this post idea was formed. Many people have the basics, but what about other cool accessories for their wine. While many people would love to have this:
A custom wine cellar MIGHT be out of their price range. However, here are 5 gift ideas for your favorite wine lover.
How great would that gift set be with a bottle of wine? It comes with a corkscrew, bottle stopper, pourer, and drip ring! Everything they would need besides the glasses are right there for them to enjoy their favorite bottle of wine!
How cool is this wine opener? This opener has an antique bronze finish that is appealing to the eye as well as useful. All you need to do is install it to a shelf or a countertop and it's ready to use!
Sometimes when you are traveling, whether it be in town or to a different state, you may want to take your own wine with you. I know that my parents have one of these wine totes and we used it to take wine on one of our cruises! They come in a variety of sizes for how many bottles you can take with you. How cool would it be to safely tote home that lovely bottle of wine you had while on vacation? This can help you do it.
These come in all different sizes and shapes. There were some shaped like the Eiffel Tower, Roosters, a Wine Glass cork cage, etc. Some people like collecting their labels and corks to remember that wine that they loved, and this is a nice way for them to store them. I've tried collecting corks before, but this is a much more visually appealing way to do so.
Rounding out my five gift ideas for the wine lover is this aerator/pourer. After some research, I learned that aerators are useful for letting your wine breathe and allowing the flavor characteristics to come out. If you are buying for someone who loves red wine, this is a great gift for them. The way you tilt your wine is important too. This is product info from the website where I found this particular product.
With HOST's variable aeration, perfectly aerate anything from your lightest Pinot Noir to your most robust Bordeaux, all at the tilt of your bottle. Our instant aerator enhances any wine by softening tannins and releasing flavor.
Steep tilt: stronger aeration for white wines
Moderate tilt: for tannic, red wines
Shallow tilt: for light-bodied reds
So there you have it, hopefully I've given you some ideas for wine gifts for a birthday present, Christmas Present, Wedding Gift, Housewarming Party, or a "just because you need this" gift. Of course, Vino2Go's are an excellent option as well as a new wine glass set! Explore the wine websites above and maybe you'll be able to find a great gift for someone else or yourself! Oh, and since it's Monday, pour yourself a glass of your favorite wine at the end of your long day! Enjoy!
