The Gift of Wine

Wine and champagne have always been the preferred drinks of lovers. A shared bottle of wine can help set the mood for a wonderfully romantic evening.

But wine also makes a excellent gift, especially in a beautifully presented wine basket.


During the holiday season, most of us are in a frantic search for presents for loved ones and friends. Next time, instead of the usual hassle of selecting a gift which will suit him or her, try sending a wine gift basket instead. Wine gift baskets are a perfect present for both men and women and suit every occasion. The information below will help you select an appropriate wine gift.

Who will be receiving the wine gift basket?

Men may prefer a bottle of wine, which they can open and drink immediately or store in their own wine cabinet. (The smile when he - or she - unwraps the present to discover a 1990 Bordeaux is priceless.) Women are usually more delighted with a wine accessory such as a corkscrew, crystal wine glasses or a decanter. Below are the four basic questions you need to ask yourself before you shop for a wine gift.

What is the occasion?

Different wine gift baskets are suitable for various occasions. Wine gift baskets are a favorite for parties. The numerous items within will allow everyone to enjoy the wine with delicious tidbits as well. Wine merchants also have wine gift baskets for special occasions such as Valentine's Day or Christmas.

What is your budget?

Most nifty wine gift baskets can be had for $25-$50 although fine wines will be more expensive. Wine gifts often include cheese and chocolates. Just remember it is the thought that counts!

What is their knowledge of wine?

If the wine gift is for a beginning wine enthusiast, then a well-written book on enjoying wine will be an excellent additional gift, whereas an expert wine enthusiast might enjoy having a stopper for the half empty bottle of wine. Try to find a wine gadget that he does not already own. Most people will be touched by the thoughtfulness of your gift. The wine gadget will also remind him or her of your friendship each time he or she enjoys a bottle of fine wine.
