Finding ways to gift the wine lover in your life has never been more fun (or easy). Read on for super fun gifting ideas!
We can pretend that it’s tough to find cool wine gifts but, well, that would be a lie. There are so many fun (and sometimes funny) gifts out there for wine lovers that we actually have a hard time trying to narrow it down. Sure you can always go the route of just buying them their favorite bottle of wine but, let’s be honest, everyone else is already going to get them that. Plus, they’ll never remember the bottle that you got them anyway. This season it’s all about thinking outside of the wine box. We’ve come up with some funny ideas, some inexpensive wine gifts that don’t skimp on quality, and some traditional gifts that will certainly please the wine snob that you know and, believe us, we all know that person. We don’t judge. Check out our picks for some of the best gifts for wine lovers (so far) in 2018.
1. For the Wine Lover Who Doesn’t Like a Hangover: The Wine Aerator Glass Set – Buy It Here
Because they may love wine, but who really wants the hangover than can accompany it?! This stemless fountain aerating system comes with two glasses (as a bonus!) and decants your favorite wine, brings out the wines full potential of flavors and, yes, as many say totally helps decrease the hangover impact. Everything in moderation of course!
2. The Wine Gift on the Go: The Wine Purse/Tote Bag – Buy It Here
Because sometimes you just need your wine to go. Don’t put it past us to try and sneak our favorite wine into a ballgame, a park picnic, or just at the beach. We said don’t judge! This super stylish bag can hold a 5-liter bottle of wine, comes with one cold pack and one bag insert. Pour your wine in and discreetly dispense your wine wherever you go (within legal limits of course!). Many say this makes the perfect joke gift for the wine lover in your life but, uh, we think it’s a totally practical gift this season.
3. For the Funny Wine Lover: The ‘May Contain Wine’ T-Shirt – Buy It Here
