If like me, you have wine enthusiasts or oenophiles (just had to work that word in somewhere!) on your gift list, then this list of 9 Best Gifts for Wine Lovers will be so handy. These gift ideas reinforce the art and science behind wine and the enjoyment of it.
“Beer is made by men, wine by God.”
Truth…though raised by and married to beer lovers, I just cannot drink the stuff! In fact, I spent my whole 4 years in college without letting beer pass my lips…needless to say, I was often the designated driver.
But wine, now that’s another story. With maturity, my appreciation of wines has blossomed and I now enjoy a glass while cooking our dinner each night and pairing a good wine with the meal I am serving.
Over the years we have purchased, have gifted or have been gifted several wine-related items and have our eyes on others. Here are some suggestions for the best gifts for wine lovers, in no particular order.

Take a look at some of these gifts and chime in the comments with your favorite gift idea. I will be randomly drawing one name at the end of November from all of the comments to win a Vinturi Wine Aerator, which is one of my hubby’s favorite wine tools.
Each of these 4 chocolate bars is formulated with flavors that will pair well with specific wines. Not only is this a great gift for wine lovers, but I’m planning to have a set of chocolate bars at our next dinner party.
Earthy-flavored red wines often benefit from aerating before serving. We received this aerator as a Christmas gift several years back and use it regularly. It makes a great gift and stocking stuffer.
This classic Corkscrew (known as ‘the waiter’s friend’), made by Pulltex from Spain, is rated by Food & Wine as The Best Overall Corkscrew. Its double-hinged fulcrum helps maintain leverage, even with the worm twisted all the way into the cork. The simple form and function of this classic corkscrew assures that it will always be among the best gifts for Wine Lovers.
These insulated wine glasses are perfect for drinks on the beach or at your local outdoor concert. We find them incredibly handy during our local summer concert series where we can bring our picnic dinners.
Sssssh…don’t tell my husband…but this will be under the Christmas tree for him this year. He has been using my water decanter…which is fine…unless I want a decanter of water on the table. This one has great reviews and I like that you can easily pour the unused wine back in the bottle through the aerator piece. It comes with cleaning beads and a drying rack. Plus, it’s really nice looking!
If you are looking for an economical and unique gift for your wine lover, then this vacuum pump might just be the ticket. It’s the perfect tool when you have several bottles opened and need to save them. This pump removes the air and secures them for future use. It is also available with 6 stoppers.
I can think of so many people who would enjoy this Amazon Bestseller. With descriptions of grapes and wine colors to food & wine pairing charts, this book is perfect for the wine enthusiast who wants to take their wine game up a notch!
That exclamation was frequently heard at 5 p.m. when I would open my fridge and find nary a bottle of chilled wine. 😱
Enter this Wine Chiller Stick. It takes up very little room in the freezer and will chill a bottle of wine in 15 minutes! If you or your wine lover don’t have a wine cooler or don’t have enough room in a refrigerator, then this is a great gift.
I am always on the lookout for new cookbooks and this book, which combines suggestions for wine pairings with recipes, sounds like the perfect addition to my cookbook library. The reviews are fantastic and it was just added to my Christmas wish list!
