It’s that time of year when we try to find the absolute perfect gifts for the people we love. We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s better to give than receive”—and we wholeheartedly agree that there’s something so exciting about giving someone a gift that you just know they are going to love. So if you have a wine lover in your life (if you’re reading this blog post, you probably do!), you’re in the right place. We’ve done the heavy lifting and come up with the perfect gifts for wine lovers. All you have to do is scroll through it and find the one that’s just right for your loved one.
While we’re posting this with the holiday season in mind, these gifts are perfect for wine lovers all year round. So bookmark this page and save it for birthdays, anniversaries, and just because days!
Gift Ideas for Wine Lovers
A wine tour is the perfect experience gift for the wine lover who already has all the wine accessories they could need. You can find wine tours all over the country simply by Googling “wine tour near me.” And if you can’t find an official wine tour near you, create your own! Make a list of local wineries or wine bars, and take your friend on a local wine tour, hosted by yours truly.
If you’re near Fredericksburg, TX, you’re in luck! We specialize in wine tours on the 290 Wine Trail.
A wine subscription is the ideal gift for the adventurous wine lover who wants to try new wines. Food & Wine compiled a list of the best wine subscriptions of 2022 to make things simple. Alternatively, you can create your own “wine subscription” by gifting 12 local wines for your friend to sample each month of the year.
Wine Glass Tags
Personalized wine glass tags are the perfect way to bring personality to any glass. With so many unique tags available online, you are sure to find wine glass tags that fit your friend’s aesthetic, interests, or personality. Here are a few of our favorites from Amazon.
- Tropical Wine Glass Markers
- Sports Wine Glass Markers
- Cat Wine Glass Markers
- Snail Wine Glass Markers
We love experience gifts, and this is a great one to do with your friend or family member. Look for wine tastings near you. Local wineries typically host scheduled or even walk-in tastings. Wine stores like Total Wine & More also host various wine classes and tastings throughout the year. Or, organize your own wine tasting at home! Maybe you’ll try to find the best Chardonnay at your local grocery store, or maybe you’ll create your own slew of wine and cheese pairings to sample and rate.
A wine tasting journal is perfect for the organized individual who wants to remember the wine they tried, when they tried it, and why they did or didn’t like it. These make great stocking stuffers!
Insulated Wine Bottle & Tumbler
This is the perfect gift for the wine lover who prefers a very specific temperature for their beverage. Whether they want it hot or cold, this bottle and tumbler set will keep it that way. Plus, the stainless steel material eliminates any worry of broken glass on the go.
For the wine lover who loves to learn, The World Atlas of Wine or The Oxford Companion to Wine will teach them everything they didn’t know they needed to learn about wine. Just prepare yourself for endless wine facts in your future. (You can at least pretend to be interested!)
Because there’s nothing like sipping Merlot while basking in its aroma, right? Plus, everyone can use another candle. The hardest part of this gift is simply choosing one from the wide selection of options!
Fun Bottle Stopper
From pickles to beanies to corgis, there are so many fun wine bottle stoppers to get for the wino in your life. Pair this gift with a bottle of their favorite wine, and you might just claim the title of best gift giver of the season.
The Perfect Pairings
Why not gift everything but the wine? Create an assortment of cheeses, chocolates, snacks, and anything else that pairs well with your loved one’s favorite wine. Think outside the box with comfort items like fuzzy socks, bath salts, a new book, or some face masks. It wouldn’t hurt to throw in some wine, too!
There are so many fun gifts for wine lovers. And if you’re a wine lover yourself, send this page to someone in your life so you can benefit from it!
