Great Gifts for Wine Drinkers 2018

A wine box is a great gift for a wine lover, because who doesn’t want a few free bottles of wine! We recommend this lovely box from Laithwaites Wine. It includes a bottle of Chateauneuf, that any wine lover would appreciate, along with a nice crystal decanter. Laithwaites will deliver the gift right to your recipient’s doorstep. $69Buy here
Le Chateau Wine DecanterLearn More
I love this sleek and beautiful wine decanter. Any one who drinks wine at home would love to have this decanter. It not only helps to quickly breath life into older vintage wines, it also looks lovely on the table.
The decanter is made of 100% lead-free crystal. It is designed to hold a 750ml bottle of wine with the right amount of breathable surface area remaining at the top when full. It also has an easy pour slanted spout.Buy here
Aervana One-Touch Electric Wine AeratorLearn More
You may think your friend is a wine snob, but they probably just really love their wine! There’s nothing like opening an older vintage wine, aerating it properly, and enjoying the aromas as you sip and enjoy. This Aervana wine aerator does all the work to bring an aged wine back to life so you can fully enjoy it.Buy here
Animal Wine Pourer AeratorLearn More
We found and purchased our animal wine pourer in Sonoma at a winery that stocked at least a dozen different animals. We bought the bear and named him Wineston. The pourer aerates the wine through its mouth as you pour, which is a great added bonus. The real joy is watching the wine pour from its mouth and into your glass. Sounds strange, but I’ve yet to meet someone who wasn’t fascinated by it.Buy here

The perfect casual gift – perhaps for a coworker or acquaintance – these coasters are adorned by cute wine phrases and will make a great addition to the coffee table as conversation starters.BUy HERE
VinGardeValise Wine Travel SuitcaseLearn More
If the person you’re buying for likes to travel for wine, like we do, then this is the perfect gift to give them. You can securely pack up to 12 bottles of wine in this suitcase. The secure, padded spaces make sure the wine stays secure during transit. You can also remove one or both of the inserts and use it for clothing,
or a mix of both. The suitcase has spinner wheels, so it’s easy to push. And it conforms to all TSA airline standards.
It also comes in a smaller 8-bottle version. See it in action here.buy here
Wine Glass HOlder NecklaceLearn More
These things come in handy when you’re at a wine tasting event where you need to carry your glass and a plate of food at the same time. You can just put this around your neck and you can be hands free. We’ve used these every year at the Sonoma Wine Weekend and people are always asking us where we got them.buy here
Beach Bag with Hidden, Insulated CompartmentLearn More
This is no ordinary beach back. It actually holds up to 2 bottles of wine (or 1.5 liters of your favorite drink – which better be wine) in a hidden, insulated compartment, so you can lug your wine to the beach in style and keep it hidden away (and chilled properly!). Plus there’s still room for your beach things. The pouch inside can be reused as long as you keep it clean and dry.buy here
Wine WatchersLearn More
These are not your ordinary wine glass charms. They’re way cuter! The guests will love picking out their color and sticking him on the wine stem. They’re endless fun. Don’t believe me? Give them a try. You’ll see. No one can resist the wine watchers. We also love the mustache version.buy here
JOIN THE NAKED WInE CLUBLearn More
If you or a friend are a wine lover, you absolutely must sign up for the Naked Wine Club. It’s a great way to get better prices on better wine.
Here’s how it works: When you sign up for the wine club, you become an Angel. You invest $20 or more a month into your Naked Wines piggy bank. Naked Wines uses that money to invest in talented, independent winemakers. In return, they give you exclusive wines at insider prices (25%-50% off retail). And the money you put in your piggy bank each month can be used any time to purchase the wine you love.
