1. A Personalized Set of Wine Glasses
What better way to show how much the wine lover in your life means to you than to make it personal? Order wine glasses for your wine-obsessed friend or family member and add a sweet message or a meaningful date. That way each time they take a sip, they’ll remember you.
Shutterfly has lots of great options for personalized wine glasses, and there are lots of other places online like Etsy to check out if you want to branch out into unique shapes or designs.
2. A Cute Wine-Themed T-Shirt
For that friend who just loves to cuddle up in their loungewear with a good book and a glass of Pinot Noir, a cute and cozy wine-themed tank top or t-shirt is the perfect gift! Tour DeVine sells wine-themed clothing that’s perfect for both snuggling up by the fire with a glass of Willamette Valley wine and wearing with a cute blazer or cardigan as you take to the skies on one of our tours!
3. A Wine Aroma Kit
There’s no doubt that one of the most fun, complex, and memorable things about wine tasting is the smells! A wine aroma kit is an amazing gift for the true wine lovers in your circle. They’re basically libraries of wine aromas, usually from around the world, that allow you to train your aroma recognition skills and sharpen your senses. Here’s an awesome example from Aromaster, which comes with 88 aromas.
4. A Tour DeVine Helicopter Tour Gift Certificate
While wine-themed merchandise and items to use at home are always great gifts, nothing beats an adventure! Taking your friend, family member, or significant other on a wine tour, or buying them a gift certificate so they can take you or someone else, is the ultimate way to show a wine-lover you care.
Our helicopter wine tours from Tour DeVine offer the ultimate in luxury, natural beauty, adventure, and high-quality Willamette Valley wines. You can’t go wrong with this gift!
5. A Wine-Themed Board Game
Nothing pairs better with a glass of vino than a wine-themed board game. If you’re on a budget, but want to get your friend or loved one a gift they’ll love and get hours of enjoyment out of, you can’t go wrong with a trivia card game or board game – especially one centered around wine. Helvetiq Wine IQ, Wine-Opoly, and Wine Wars are three of our favorites. If you’ve got a bit extra to spend, get them a bottle of wine or two to drink with their friends while they play!
6. Rapid Beverage Chiller
For the white wine lovers in your life, a rapid countertop wine chiller is the gift that keeps on giving! Top brands can chill a bottle of wine in just about a minute or so, making hosting dinner parties and home tastings super convenient and a blast! A lot of these kinds of gadgets can also cool cans and plastic bottles, so your wine-loving pal can chill their wine, beer, or even orange juice or soda whenever they want something to drink.
7. A Wine Pairing Book
You really can’t go wrong with a wine-pairing book or a wine-themed cookbook. After all, most people enjoy a nice glass of vino and just about everyone loves to eat! There are lots of books out there written by wine and food experts that provide great advice on what wines pair well with certain appetizers, entrées, desserts, and more.
Check out Powell’s Books, Amazon’s bestsellers, and Barnes and Noble’s favorites, or head to your local independent book shop and pick up something that looks interesting. Even if the wine lover in your life doesn’t like to cook, a pairing book will help them know exactly what to order next time they’re out for a nice meal.
8. Wine, Of Course
When in doubt, stick to what you know someone will love! A single bottle of wine from their favorite winery or a wine subscription is the perfect gift for just about any occasion. Play it safe by getting them a wine you know they’ve already tried and love, or get them something totally new and out of the box.
If you want to mix it up, you can always add a box of chocolates to that bottle of Cabernet or a gourmet cheese plate to accompany a nice boutique Riesling.
