Wine Gifts Don't Get Thrown Away

Nov 7, 2007
When the holiday season approaches, everyone is faced with the same dilemma. What gifts should they get for other people? Let's face it, most of the stuff other people give you as a gift you end up throwing away, so believe me people have done the same thing with the lame gifts you have gotten them in the past.

Why not try something different this year and get your adult friends and loved ones wine gifts. As long as the person is old enough for alcohol and they can and like wine, the gift is totally appropriate and a very good one that will not be thrown away.

Wine Gifts 101

The most basic wine gift is to give a good quality single bottle of wine. This is a nice gesture because a person can spend a little more on the single bottle wine gift than most people would normally spend on a bottle for themselves. Therefore by spending a little money and buying a bottle that is more than twenty dollars you can ensure to give someone a wine gift they have not tried before.

It is a good idea to try and find out what type of wine the person normally enjoys and stick to that category. Don't buy chardonnay for a merlot drinker. If the wine taste is unknown a good choice is always a fine bottle of champagne that the person can have for a celebration.

Wine Gift Baskets

A wine gift basket is a very nice idea for a gift. The bottle of wine can be joined by cheese and crackers, by fruit, or by little trinkets. The wine gift basket can include wine glasses or flutes, a corkscrew and some other wine accessory.

The gift basket can be made personal with a book or favorite scented candle and bubble bath for a relaxing moment. With careful thought the wine gift basket will be a wonderful and very thoughtful gift. For people who are very busy and don't have much time to shop there are several online companies that provide a variety of gift baskets for purchase.

Wine Bottles With Custom Labels

This can also be a great way to customize your wine gift. Most companies that sell custom labels sell fine wine as well so you can one-stop shop. You can put anything you want on these labels:
* Jokes
* Pictures
* Company names
* Logos
* Anything you can create or think of

These are especially great for a business that is considering giving a gift that leaves an impression. But they are also just as good for the family who wants to put their photo on bottles of wine to send to relatives.

A Fine Wine Gift

For someone very special who requires a larger more costly gift, a person may want to purchase a wine gift that includes travel to a winery with lodging, meals and transportation included. This gift can be to a winery close to home or even better maybe a trip to Argentina, Italy, France, South Africa, Chile, California, Australia or any other place that is known for their fine wines.

This can be a nice gift for a couple celebrating a silver or golden wedding anniversary or for an older person who has never had the chance or finances for much travel. This gift will be costly so it is best if you can other family members or friends to pitch in for the trip as well. Whether you decide to buy a bottle of wine or a trip to where they bottle it, any wine connoisseur will be very grateful.
