The discerning wine connoisseur can be very difficult to shop for !
Especially the geeky ones that tend to be already equipped with everything they need to enjoy their favorite hobby/obsession: wine!
Keeping up a conversation with them, or pick a gift that they will love and use (and hopefully don’t already have…) is a hard task.
If you’ve got a wine lover friend who already has just about everything…
Here are 10 gift ideas that they’ve probably never seen before:
1 – Wine cork map
This wine cork map can be personalized to your friend’s home state and it will be especially beloved by them because they’ll be able to spend the next year filling it up with corks from their favorite (maybe even local!) wines.
2 – Wine bottle weather
This is a practical gift that will allow any wine lover to display their passion to the outside world. It’s wrought from beautiful copper and brass, so it will last as long as their love for a good glass of vino.
3 – For the wine drinker who loves to get cozy
These comfy socks are the perfect gift. They’ll no longer have to worry about getting up every so often to refill their glass: they can come home, relax, kick their feet up, and watch the delicious drinks come to them!
4 – Know a wine lover with a little bit of attitude?
This wooden corkscrew sign will match their personality perfectly.
5 – Repurposed Wine Bottles
Etsy is great for unique handmade goods, but if you’re looking to give something truly one-of-a-kind (or if you’re strapped for cash,) you can always make on of many wonderful DIY gifts from repurposed wine bottles!
6 – Dinosaur wine bottle holder
It can be a great gift as it becomes a statement piece for the home that also serves a purpose: displaying a special bottle. This stegosaurus wine-o-saur bottle holder is sure to delight anyone who loves natural history.
7 – Gravity-defying bottle holder
If dinosaurs aren’t their thing, try this gravity defying wine bottle holder to add a little whimsy to their home.
8 – GuzzleBuddy for the wine enthusiast
While the socks are a great gift for the laid-back, comfy-cozy type who has someone to bring them wine, this GuzzleBuddy might be a better gift for the vino enthusiast who lives alone. It will turn their favorite bottle into their very own wine glass so they don’t have to get up to refill their glass ever!
9 – Strange Wine Decanters
If you’re at a loss and just need to find something extremely fancy and special (and have a good chunk of change to drop on your vigneron’s present) check out these unique and classy wine carafes. Each is a true work of art that will be proudly displayed.
Happy Holidays, Wine Lover!
