Best Gifts for the Wine Lover

Updated on December 16, 2013

Best Gifts for the Wine Enthusiast

Finding the best gift for a wine lover may not be as easy as one would think. Wine is a nice choice but do you know their tastes and preferences? Do they prefer red, white, merlot, cabernet, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc? And then do you get one bottle or two, or more? Do you get more than one variety? Hmm, too many questions to my way of thinking.

Never fear, finding the best gift for that wine lover just got easier. Our selections of gadgets and gifts are sure to delight the seasoned wine enthusiast and the beginning wine novice alike and they are sure to fit your budget too. We have Wine Openers, Wine Glasses, Wine Caddies, Wine Chillers, and even Wine Cookbooks. Whether you're looking for the complete gift or just a stocking stuffer or two you will find ideas to satisfy all.

Best Wine Openers

Chic, Elegant and Easy to Use Wine Openers

So how many corkscrews and wine openers have you tried? If you're like me the answer is far too many until I found a couple that I love because they work. No more corkscrew battles and broken cork pieces for me.

These openers are all highly recommended, have easy lift designs, look fabulous and the Stone Cask Opener includes a 5 year warranty. Take your pick as all make great gifts for friends or your own kitchen.

Oster Electric Wine-Bottle Opener

This sleek and stylish electric stainless steel opener works like a charm each and every time. Opens any bottle in 3 easy steps:

1 - Use the Foil Cutter to removes the seal

2 - Push start button once for the corkscrew to spiral through the cork

3 - When cork is free, push button again for a reverse spiral to remove the cork

A highly recommended opener, actually an Amazon #1 seller, works great for everyone particularly people with limited wrist strength. Includes charging base and available in 3 colors

Best Wine Aerators and Chillers

Wine Aerators Enhance Even a Modest Wine

Allow Your Wine to Breathe for Better Taste. Blind taste tests have proven that wine especially red wine allowed to breathe has a better bouquet, enhanced flavor, and premium taste. Test out your own blind taste experiment with your friends and fellow wine enthusiasts to see if you agree, reviewers say you will be hooked.

Vinturi is an industry leader in producing stylish, well-made, quality wine aerators and this set is sure to please.

Urban Trend Waterfall Wine Chiller

A wine chilled to the temperature you prefer is essential to enjoying great wine. There are all kinds of rules about chilling wine to proper temperatures but truth be told it is really about how you like it, right?

This computer controlled Wine Chiller is perfect for doing just that. The Urban Trend Wine Chiller accommodates most sized bottles even Champagne bottles. Never worry again about serving a wine too cold or not chilled enough, this chiller with its built-in auto-shut off control gets it right.

Best Wine Caddies and Holders

Display your Wine in a Caddy or Holder

Don't just store your wine, present your wine in whimsical style.

These clever and cute wine holders are sure attention grabbers and make wonderful conversation pieces. Place them on your kitchen counter as decoration or place them center stage on your table for your next party or gathering.

These wine bottle holders make refined and tasteful gifts or are perfect as collectibles, once friends and relatives know you are collecting you will be surprised at the treasures they will find.

Gravity Leather Wine Bottle Holder

Don't hide your favorite wine, show it off!

Gravity defying wine holders are quite popular and make great gifts. Usually made of various woods or wood inlay this elegant leather wine bottle holder is a unique one-of-a-kind find. Have you ever given a gift only to find a similar item sitting on their counter? That won't happen here!

This distinctive and tasteful gift takes up little space making it perfect for small counters or table centerpieces. Impress your friends with this stylish, classy, high quality wine bottle holder.

Best Fun Wine Glasses

Serve your Wine with Character and Attitude

Sure you can always use those plain clear wine glasses in the cupboard for entertaining but how much fun is that? Spice it up. Make it a celebration. These hand painted classics are delightful and welcomed gifts. Whether it's Girls Night Out, a Polka Dot themed party, or maybe Nurses graduation these awesome gifts are super cute and huge hits. Each glass comes packaged in individual gift boxes and should only be hand washed.

Delightful Frogs, Hand Painted Wine Glasses

What a great idea for a Frog enthusiast. Do you know someone who collects frogs? Do they have a frog-themed kitchen or maybe a frog-themed bathroom?

This set of 4 hand painted frog glasses colorfully designed with whimsical little frogs is just waiting to be filled with that special wine. Each glass holds 15 oz. and makes a welcomed gift for sharing with friends.

Get your parties hopping with these fabulous fun Frog Glasses.

Best Wine Cookbooks

You Can Never Have Too Many Cookbooks

As the saying goes "I love to cook with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food" If so then you need a Wine Cookbook and these are some of the best. Find out why pairing food with wine can be so much more than cheese and crackers.

This cookbook presents recipes from the greats (Giada De Laurentiis, Bobby Flay, Mario Batali), they come from the Food & Wine Test Kitchen and American Vineyards, they include dishes from appetizers and small bites to main entrees and desserts. So put on your apron, pour a glass of wine and try these mouthwatering delights, Pan Seared Duck Breast with Red Wine Sauce, Chicken with Chardonnay and Chanterelles, or Beef Stew with Red Wine.
