Buying the perfect wine gift for the wine lover who has everything can be a daunting task. Whatever the occasion may be, we always want to give the perfect gift for Christmas, birthday, or anniversary. When this becomes difficult is when you have the task of shopping for that friend or family member who seems to have everything -especially when it comes to wine. Our team here at Finding Pinot has taken that burden away by scouring the internet to find the best and most unique wine gifts online for even the most experienced sommelier.
Most Popular Wine Gifts Online
Most serious wine lovers will probably already own one or more of the following items but we thought we should start out by listing gifts that every wine drinker should own. You may want to do some snooping around to make sure the recipient of the gift doesn’t already own the one you choose but I can tell you from experience I have friends that drink a lot of wine who don’t own any of the wine gifts on this list. They are content in just buying a bottle, opening it with their cheap wine opener, and drinking it. So with out further ado, here is a list of items EVERY wine lover should own.
A good wine aerator is a must for anyone who enjoys wine. If you have never used one, do yourself a favor and order one for yourself. There is a world of difference when it comes to drinking wine poured through an aerator.
Best Wine Glasses
When it comes to enjoying wine, a good wine glass is essential. You want one that will let you get the most out of every bottle you open. The shape is the most important part. Not every wine glass is created equal. The perfect wine glass has plenty of room at the top for your nose to absorb the bouquet yet is small enough to keep wine in the glass during a good swirl.
Electric Wine Opener
Ever since I bought the best electric wine opener, I no longer need to be around when my wife wants to enjoy a glass of wine. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t WANT to be around, I just don’t NEED to be around. An electric wine opener makes opening any bottle of wine a breeze. On a full charge, most electric wine openers will open around thirty bottles of wine before needing to be recharged.
Wine Saver Vacuum Sealer
On those occasions when you need to store an open bottle of wine, nothing keeps it fresh like a good wine vacuum sealer. A wine saver vacuum sealer works by extracting the air from an opened wine bottle and re-seals it using a rubber stopper. This inhibits the oxidation process that is responsible for the deterioration of wine.
A wine cooler is the perfect gift for that special wine lover in your life. With the many sizes and prices to choose from, including small counter top models and large free standing dual zone models, you’ll be able to find the ideal one for that lucky person receiving it.
Any red wine drinker knows, the tight fit of a wine bottle is no way to allow the wine to “breathe”. That is why all wine lovers need a wine decanter.
Unique Gifts For A Wine Lover
Since it may be hard to find a gift for the wine lover who has everything, we have come up with a list of unique gifts that every wine lover would love to own…..they just may not know it yet.
Wine Cork Holder
A wine cork holder makes an excellent gift and comes in many shapes and sizes.
A simple yet elegant counter top wine rack is an excellent way to display a few bottles of red wine. The great thing is, if you have ever been to the persons house you are shopping for, you should know whether or not they already own one of these.
A good wine tote is essential for wine drinkers that love to have a glass on a hike or picnic. The perfect wine tote comes with everything you need to carry, open, drink, and share a glass of wine whether it be on a trail, in a field, at the park, or at a friends house.
Wine Aerating Glass
A wine aerating glass brings functionality to your wine enjoyment. Completely handcrafted, the Sommelier Aerating Wine Glass offers a truly elegant and unique way to aerate your wine.
Pour into the aeration vessel in the center of the glass. The wine will cascade through, resulting in aerated wine that’s ready to please your pallet.
