Sarah on November 19, 2013 0 Comments Everybody knows somebody who is crazy about wine. Their obsession makes gift buying both easy and difficult, because although you know you intend you give them something wine-related, you are unsure as to what exactly they would benefit from or enjoy receiving the most. The first question we suggest you ask yourself is: What stage of wine-o are they? Have they recently discovered their love of wine? Have they been into wine awhile but are still learning all there is to know? Or are they a full-blown wine connoisseur? Once you answer this question, it may be a little easier to track down the perfect gift. We’ve compiled some of our favorite gifts into those 3 categories, so you can go ahead and confidently cross your wine-crazed companion off your list. The Novice What do you give the beginner? If someone is new to the world of wine, they probably haven’t begun navigating through the world of wine gadgets yet. Maybe they’ve picked up a $5.00 aerator at the liquor store but haven’t really made an investment yet. You can’t go wrong by gifting them a quality wine aerating product. You’ll be giving them a gift that keeps on giving – an enhanced wine drinking experience. The Budding Enthusiast They’ve been telling you all about the wine tasting class they took and bragging about their growing collection of Napa Cabs for weeks. What do you give to the enthusiast? Give them a place to store and protect their new wine investments—give them a small wine fridge. By gifting them a unit that holds more bottles than their current collection, you’re able to show your support for their new hobby and also give them the means to keep at it. The Aficionado This is where it gets really tricky. What does one give the wine connoisseur in their life? Presuming they have it all, it’s best to just give them more of what they can’t seem to get enough of—give them more wine! If you don’t want to go through the stress of picking out bottles they won’t scoff at, give them a Wine Club Subscription that will do the picking for you. The great thing about monthly or seasonal wine clubs is the confidence that they will still be enjoying your gift months down the road, rather than only during the holidays. By following these guidelines, you’ll be able to spend less time worrying about the wine lover in your life and more time focusing on those picky in-laws of yours. Happy gifting!
