Bringing someone a gift in the form of a wine bottle, though good manners, may be viewed as lazy. Unless you know a person’s favorite type of wine or the bottle has an interesting story, for example, it was made somewhere the gift-receiver has traveled, wine can sometimes be viewed as a gift that didn’t require much thought. Gifting wine can also come with a spiderweb of social niceties. Do you know whether the host drinks wine and if so, what kind? Should the wine be opened during the event or do you want the host to keep it for later? If the wine isn’t served, do you take it back? Still, showing up to a housewarming, dinner party, birthday party or holiday gathering without wine could appear rude. That’s why we like pairing a bottle of wine with one of the best gifts for wine lovers.
There are several ways to present a bottle of wine. A quick search on Pinterest reveals that just about any household item can become a wine bottle holder. But if you want a gift for wine lovers that truly makes an impact, include a thoughtful wine accessory that can make it even easier to enjoy a great bottle of red, white or rosé.
Whether you’re always looking for new ways to show off your love of wine or need to find a unique gift for that certain oenophile in your life, these sophisticated and whimsical accessories will impress wine lovers and connoisseurs of all levels. Alternatively, check out our definitive guide to the best wine clubs in 2022.
