Christmas Gift Ideas for Wine Lovers

November 29, 2013

Happy Holidays!!!!

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.

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.

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)

    That wine cask is crazy! I love it! I just wish it weren’t so expensive! Can you actually age wine in it?

      I know! Isn’t it?! I think you CAN age wine in it. It comes with directions on how to prep the barrel. I would never try it myself because I can’t imagine how rancid my wine would taste. LOLOL! But it’s a great way to serve wine at dinner parties!

      Hey there! Right now I keep them in a sofa table that has a glass top. The top lifts and you can fill the table with anything. Terri originally had potpourri in it. hahaha Now it’s full of wine corks. Eventually I want to get a coffee table that has the same thing (see through top). Always drink more! 😉
