Looking for a few gift ideas for your wine loving friends or family, but don’t know enough about wine to think of anything? Maybe this will help! A couple of these things I own myself, and others I’ve seen along the way that I would LOVE to receive.
I’ve tried to cover different price points so there’s a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for everyone.
Happy shopping everyone! Cheers!
1) Personalized Wine Cask from Red Envelope ($129.95)
Look at this thing! What’s more fun than having your own personal mini wine barrel in your home? I can’t think of a better conversation piece to serve wine for dinner parties. You can either age your own wine or pour multiple bottles in so guests can self serve. It will give a new meaning to “barrel tasting” in your kitchen! 🙂
Although the word “vineyard” is pre-printed, everything else can be customized so your friends and family can feel like their own vintners.
2) Slate Cheese Board and Chalk Set from Wine Stuff ($19.99)
With great wine comes a taste for great cheeses.
This Slate Cheese Board and Chalk Set features natural edges and velvet mounting to protect counter tops. The Slate Cheese Board and Chalk Set comes with food safe soapstone chalk to note the type of cheese, or write a message for your guests.
3) Food & Wine Pairing Book: Great Tastes Made Simple by Andrea Immer Robinson ($25)
Andrea Immer Robinson is a rock star in the world of wine. Anything I know about wine, I learned from reading her books and watching her videos. She knows how to speak food and wine for those of us that need “straight talk”. How many wine experts tell you how to pair wine with mac-n-cheese? She rocks.
Great Tastes Made Simple is a wonderful guide with basic wine lessons, food pairings and delicious recipes. It’s a definite must-have for any wine and food enthusiast.
4) Vinturi Deluxe Red Wine Aerator Set from Amazon ($29.45 – $67.89)
We love our Vinturi! If your special someone loves red wine, this is perfect gadget for them. Simply pour your wine through the Vinturi filter and it instantly adds aeration unleashing the aromas and bouquets within the vino.
This 6-piece set is a great bargain at $67.89. You can read more and purchase it here—>

5) Wine Wars Trivia Game from Uncommon Goods ($13.50)
A great stocking stuffer! From the creator of Foodie Fight, Wine Wars is a fun and fascinating trivia game that tests your knowledge of the fruit of the vine.
6) Double Wine Tote from Uncommon Goods ($22)
How many times have we purchased a bottle of wine and had the bag break in our driveway? Gasp! At that moment in time it truly feels like life, as we know it, is OVER!
