If you have one of those friends that loves wine, you probably know more about wine than you thought, even if you don’t drink it on your own. Those that drink wine often get very involved in knowing a lot about the wine they drink, about how wine is made, the differences in wines from around the world, and even how to pair a specific type with a specific meal. If your wine lover has an occasion coming up, like a birthday or anniversary, or perhaps the holidays are rolling in, take this into consideration. Whatever the occasion, look for great wine gifts just for them.
The obvious choice for wine gifts would be a set of nice wine glasses. These glasses have stems on them. This looks neat, but that is not the real reason for the shape of the glass. The heat that comes from your hands can easily heat wine up when you want it to remain cool. If you hold the glass properly, which means holding it by the stem, you negate that problem. Look for a nice set of wine glasses, even if they already have some, for a great gift idea for wine gifts, even if you are on a tight budget.
Along the same lines, if you don’t have a lot of money for wine gifts, you can always get some charms. These go on the stem of the wine glass, in most cases, and are very neat. They can be just about anything. Think of them as charms like you would put on a charm bracelet or necklace. Some of these are more expensive than others, but you should find them very affordable in most cases. You can get these online or you can find them in great stores in your local area. Look for charms that are meaningful to the recipient. It makes a great gift.
If you have more money to spend on wine gifts, you can always give the gift of wine. You can get someone a bottle of the wine you know they drink the most, or you can buy them a case if that is something that you can afford. You can choose to get them something they have never had before, though this can be tricky. You can start at the wine store by explaining that you are buying wine gifts. You can let them know what your friend likes, and they can usually help you decide which others will probably be appealing to them.
Of course, your wine gifts can be a combination of all of the above. You can find some places that send out nice wine baskets, or you can make a basket on your own. Those that love wine use it all the time, which means that wine gifts are always going to be welcome. That can take some of the guesswork out of buying something for the person that seems to have everything. Suddenly, they are not nearly as hard to shop for.
