Whether it be Christmas, a birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day or any other occasion that warrants a gift, we’re here to help you find the perfect present for the wine lover on your list.
Our giant gift guide for wine lovers is newly updated for 2020/2021 and covers just about everything a wine lover could want — except for the wine (see our Insider Deals for that)!
From wine accessories to wine travel to wine books to funny wine gifts and more for your home, we’ve got tons of recommendations for you, mostly available on Amazon Prime. (Note: This post contains affiliate links.)
Fun (Yet Still Practical) Wine Gifts
Sometimes the best gift is the one that makes the recipient laugh. Even better is when it not only makes them laugh, but it can also be put to good use. First up in our Ultimate Gift Guide for Wine Lovers are a few of our favorites along those lines.
The only pair of socks you’ll ever need:
For the Champagne lover we give you the authentic champagne cork table made of real Portuguese cork!
For the biker, we give you the Fyxation Leather Bicycle Wine Carrier.
For anyone who takes a bath…here’s the perfect solution to enjoying your wine at the same time, the Sip Caddy.
Everyone on your list can enjoy this Open Door Policy doormat.
Want Santa to visit your house more than once? These Wine Stockings might just do the trick!
Staying with the Christmas decoration theme for a moment, why not go all out with the 6.5 foot tall Wine Bottle Christmas Tree complete with 600 lights!
We love to visit new areas to go wine tasting, but perhaps the most underrated (and most affordable) wine region in the entire world is your own couch, which is why we love this t-shirt.
Is it coffee or is it wine? They’ll never know…
And last but not least, sometimes you just want one glass. Sometimes you just want one really giant glass that holds a full bottle of wine.
The Basics — Wine Accessories
The most basic of basics in our Ultimate Gift Guide For Wine Lovers is getting a bottle of wine open. Our favorite options are either an old school double hinged style opener or a super easy and super quick electronic opener like this one for around $30.
Choose your weapon — High Tech or Old School!
On the subject of high-tech gifts, here’s one of the most important we can recommend and it’s probably something you’ve never even considered — a portable breathalyzer. We like the Backtrack Mobile which connects to your smartphone (see our review here) but if you’re looking for more of a stocking stuffer check out the stand-alone keychain version for just $29. (It even comes in multiple colors.)
This one could literally be a life-saver.
Class up your countertop with the Boxxle.
Here’s another nice gift option for the friend that’s always on the go, the govino portable wine glasses made from unbreakable plastic. Way better than a Solo cup, these will have you drinking in style on picnics, boating, camping, at the beach, etc. Check out our review here.
The govino Decanter, 16oz and 12oz plastic glasses.
One of the most vexing problems for sparkling wine lovers is what to do when you’d like a little bubbly but you just can’t finish off the bottle yourself. As we found in our review, the CapaBubbles sparkling wine resealer is indeed the answer.
Make your sparkling wine last longer.
For you weather watching wine friends, why not class up the old-fashioned weather vane with this pure copper wine bottle version!
Want to know which way the wind is blowing? Who cares, let’s have some wine!
If the wine lover on your list also happens to be a chocolate lover, then Brix Chocolate For Wine is the gift you should be giving. Specially designed to match different types of wine, this is one of our absolute favorite brands of chocolate (and that’s saying a lot!)
Why not liven up your next party by having a blind wine tasting? This fun and comprehensive blind wine tasting kit gives you everything you need to put your skills to the test and liven up your next party! Not for those who talk the talk but can’t walk the walk.
For The Traveler
While I adore wine travel, one of the more vexing problems that always comes up is the best way to transport wine acquired during your trip. And while there are less expensive options that involve bubble wrap and such, our Ultimate Gift Guide For Wine Lovers recommendation is to go high-tech with the VinGarde Valise. Check out our full review here.
When your wine absolutely must arrive fine.
For The Reader — Wine Books
Jancis Robinson’s The Oxford Companion to Wine, now on the 4th Edition, is THE definitive book for the wine lover in your life. With over 4,000 entries on every wine related topic imaginable, this book makes a fabulous gift.
For visual learners and fans of beautiful maps, we can’t recommend Wine Folly: Magnum Edition highly enough!
