25 Mar Ideal Gifts for your Wine Lover Friend
When your wine lover friend’s birthday, anniversary etc comes along, you probably start stressing over what you can gift him/her. Well, you aren’t alone in this quandary. A lot of people feel completely lost when it comes to gifting something to their friends who love wine. It’s but obvious that you would want to gift the person something that’s connected to wine, in some way or the other.
The quandary comes less from lack of choices and more from the fact that most of these people already have all the things they need with reference to accessories and embellishments for their wine bar. You can’t really gift them more wine – their wine cellar is probably stocked to the hilt with fine wines.
Wine glasses and generic and predictable accessories such as decanters, aerators and corkscrews are a definite no-no. So, what then do you gift your friend who has just about everything? Don’t lose heart – read on for some gift ideas for wine lovers…
#1 Wine lotions & soaps
This is an extremely practical gift and an ideal way to add a unique touch to your friend’s home. They can place these either in the guest bathroom or even in the kitchen in their house. You will find some companies that make these using only organic ingredients sourced from wineries across the world. These are essentially products that are made using a blend of wines and essential oils and are a practical yet exotic gift for a friend.
#2 Cork trivet kits
If you look hard enough, you will be able to zero-in on a distinctive-looking cork kit as a gift. Most wine lovers tend to collect corks – as mementos of special moments shared with family and friends, when they bring out their best wines and bubblys. While many people collect corks, they don’t really have a unit or kit to display them in and your gift will surely be appreciated and used.
#3 Wine label remover
Some people like to save labels of the wine bottles they have uncorked for a special event; but the task of removing labels from bottles can be extremely challenging. These wine label removers are strips that only remove the printed surfaces on the labels; your friend will have a gift he/she will find very useful.
#4 Cheese serving platters
Most wine aficionados like serving exotic cheeses with their vintage wines. It’s a great idea to gift a cheese serving platter – some of these are very uniquely made with coloured glass and complement the look of different – coloured cheeses to perfection.
#5 Mahogany wine totes
These are elegant pieces crafted in solid mahogany. They are sometimes embellished with leather or brass studs; and are an excellent gift if your friend wants to carry wine from his cellar to a tasting party. This is truly stylish wine bottle transportation that has flaps which can be snapped shut when the bottle is being transported.
#6 Stiletto wine bottle holders
If your friend is a lady who loves shoes, stiletto wine bottle holders are the best gift – the perfect amalgamation of both her interests. It’s a glamorous gift that looks stunning on any surface.
