Ultimate Gift Guide for Every Wine Lover

Dive into the ultimate gift guide for every wine lover to discover the best presents that will complete any wine drinking experiences.

We have covered just about everything a wine lover could want. From wine pearls to on the go coolers and unique wine holders, each of these products would be a hit for any birthday, Christmas, anniversary, or special occasion gifting. 

The ultimate gift guide for every wine lover covers the out of the box ideas that you wouldn't think of, but your wine lover will truly appreciate. From funny gag gifts to helpful wine accessories, we've got it all. 

Acrylic Glass by The Beach Glass

To start off our ultimate gift guide for every wine lover, let's imagine ourselves on the beach. What better way to take in the sun than with a glass of wine in your hand? The Beach Glass makes this experience 10 times easier. Designed to sink straight into the sand, this acrylic glass will hold your drink upright all afternoon. 

If your wine lover isn't a beach person, then this glass can also be used in the grass for a picnic, or even in the sand after slaving away at their snowman. Replace their red solo cups with a reusable, classy looking glass that can be used over and over again. As one of the coolest wine glasses every made, they won't make a trip to the beach without one. 

Wine Preserver Bottle by Michael Liebowitz

If you're looking for an out of the box idea to gift your wine lover, Uncommon Goods is a great place to start. Created by Uncommon Goods user Michael Leibowitz, this wine preserver bottle is just one of the many great items on the website we're going to suggest. 

So, why a wine preserver? This is a great gift for your friends who have bigger eyes than their stomach. If they can never finish off a bottle, even with some help, this is a great gift. The preserver bottle can hold up to 750 ml and is simple to use. Just pour the wine in the bottle, and seal it closed with the float, which will create a barrier between the wine and oxygen. 

Beverage Bottle Stoppers by Wine Condoms

This is of course a bit more of a gag gift, but it's not actually what you think. As one of the most interesting items on our gift guide for every wine lover, the wine condom creates a tight seal on the wine bottle. 

In replacement of a wine stopper, the wine condom is the solution to an unfinished bottle of wine. Though you might purchase this for a laugh, they are actually a great concept. Tell your wine lover to wrap up the best date night wines after a night full of great wine and great fun. 

Wine Pearls by Steven Chavez and Justin English

Wine pearls sound pretty elegant, don't they? The pearls are innovative wine chillers that will keep your white or rosé wine cool all night long. Unlike typical ice cubes, you won't have to worry about these pearls watering down your wine. But like ice cubes, the more pearls you add, the frostier your drink will get. 

But what sets them aside from other chillers? They are called "Pearls" due to their oval shape. Created to fit effortlessly in a round-bottomed glass, the pearls will pile up in the glass without taking up too much space. So this means more room for wine. 

On-the-Go Wine Cooler by Uncommon Goods

This would be a great gift to give in collaboration with the beach wine glasses. An on the go wine cooler is an essential for any outdoor drinking this summer. If your wine lover also loves to picnic, this cooler will be perfect to throw in their bag. Keeping whatever bottle of wine they want chilled, the cooler also keeps it safe and secure with its cushioned interior.

Created with stainless steel, the wine cooler is sleek and simple. Plus, it even comes with its own carrying case. The cooler guarantees a cool bottle for up to 12 hours. And as one of the most useful presents on our gift guide for every wine lover, we're sure you've already added this to your cart. 

Wine Decanter by Le Chateau

Recycled Wine Barrel Side Table by Uncommon Goods

Furniture is always a tough gift to give. You never truly can capture their personality or decor preferences if you just walk into an Ikea. But, if you chose to incorporate one of their other interests, you might be sold. This is a recycled wine barrel side table.
