24 Unique Gift Ideas for Wine Lovers

Giving gifts is sometimes even more satisfying than receiving them. Having enough money to buy presents is one thing, but finding the right thing is much harder. Usually, you can rely on the receiving person’s hobby, which, in this case, is wine.

True wine aficionados are quite hard to please, so a five buck bottle won’t work for the Chateauneuf du Pape lover. Luckily, you can find gifts for wine lovers minus the actual wine – a fancy bottle thermometer, blood vessel shaped carafes (because wine is blood, isn’t it?) or some artsy storage rack, that will surely knock the expert out of his socks.

To make the search for the unique wine gifts easier, we have handpicked these perfect examples of what you can present to your beloved wine appreciator. Some of these are useful, some are fun, and we hope that it’ll help in your quest for the perfect one.

Now let’s go to the pictures! Note that there are “buy” links below each wine gift idea, so if you find some wine-related gift you like – you know what to do.

Suitable for all standard wine bottles, the Floating Lasso Wine Bottle Holder is guaranteed to cause a stir at any dinner party and will be a huge talking point. It makes the perfect gift for the fun-loving vino connoisseur and looks cool in any kitchen or dining room. (buy)
