If you're planning a special dinner party for a friend or loved one, you've probably been contemplating gifts for wine. After all, you love their favorite drink, so why not go all out? There is a large variety of unique wine gifts on the market, from gourmet wine gifts to very simple items. The key is to be creative and find something that the person really likes. Here are some ideas for great wine gifts that will be appreciated by the recipient and show your class and taste.
Wine Fridges. A wine fridge is a great idea for a wine lover, especially if you know they enjoy drinking white wines. Many people do not consider refrigerated wine, but a wine fridge can keep several bottles of wine cool while keeping the temperature constant. The best wine gifts with a corkscrew in them are items which help them enjoy their favorite drink even more, such as sophisticated gadgets which make it easier to drink their favorite wine at a higher temperature. Don't worry too much about getting these presents wrapped up in a festive holiday box: most people just want to receive a cooler filled with a bottle or two of wine.
Wine Openers. Most people who enjoy drinking wine appreciate the convenience of a corkscrew, and many coravinas (openers designed to fit into cork containers) come with built-in corvan handles, making it simple to open a bottle of wine without wasting time and effort using a spoon or other pointed object. Other bottle openers, such as the popular New Zealand wine opener called the Nasi Vino, have cork measures built in so that the cork will expand when squeezed, allowing a larger bottle to be opened without any problem.
Wine Corkscrews. If you're looking for wine gifts for wine lovers, you might also want to look for corkscrews to match. There are a number of different types available, from long, tapered blades that keep cork from spilling all the way out on a spill of a smaller bottle, to curved blades that help to open wider-spotted bottles without losing the cork. If you're looking for an especially unique gift, consider purchasing one with a special handle or set of scales. These corkscrews are among the most popular wine tools sold today.
Wine Snacks. If you're looking for wine gifts for someone who only drinks red wine or one-off red wines, snacks are a great idea. Wine charms make great gifts for anyone who appreciates a fine wine. A charm is simply a small item that holds a bottle of wine, such as a charm for a bottle of Chardonnay. Wine charms are also a great choice if you want to give someone who drinks white wine, because they make a convenient way to carry a bottle of wine along with you while you travel.
Wine Stems. If you want to add a bit of flair to your gift giving, consider giving wine stems. Wine stems are decorative, and serve as a great way to decorate any bottle of wine. While they do not actually contain any wine, they do come with a bottle handle. They also make a great way to display your wine in a crowded bar or at the party table. A stem can be engraved with a name, date, or message.
Wine Tumblers. For the ultimate in wine gifts, you might want to consider giving a personalized wine tumbler. These are great for parties, anniversaries, and every day use. You can get them in a variety of shapes, from round to heart-shaped, and come in dozens of designs. Personalized wine tumblers are always a great keepsake, and they make a great gift idea for both men and women.
Cork Balls. Nothing adds a little class and sophistication to a bottle of wine quite like cork. If you're looking for something a bit more stylish than the typical bottle opener, cork ball packages are the ticket. Cork balls look just like the real thing (except they're made out of cork), are durable, and can be used for any number of different types of drinks wine lovers will enjoy. They are small enough that they can be stored in drawers, and because they come with an attractive, corked handle, they are also a practical gift option.
