We all have that person on our holiday gift list who’s straight-up wine obsessed—the type who’s easily caught sipping on a generously poured glass of vino with their pinky up. This person is one of the easiest to buy for when it comes to holiday gifting, because you know they expect a gift tailored around their number one hobby: drinking lots and lots of wine (but not just any wine). This person appreciates a quality bottle (no two buck Chuck sh*t). They also appreciate any gift having to do with wine drinking. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for this type of person, here are some wine-loving winners.
BEST FOR THE WINE SNOB IN NEED OF NEW GLASSES
Every wine snob deserves to sip their guilty pleasure out of high-quality glassware. Find out which type of wine they love to sip most and purchase the new Riedel Performance Series, a collection of optically blown glassware that comes in seven shapes – Cabernet/Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Champagne.
BEST FOR THE IMPATIENT WINE SNOB
To enjoy a bottle of red wine to its fullest extent, you must allow your wine to breath! But, let’s be honest, who wants to wait a half hour or more before enjoying a glass of wine after a stressful day of work? That’s where the Savisto Wine Aerator comes in handy. It has a built-in filter that’s designed to achieve the same results as allowing your wine to breath, but in way less time.
BEST FOR THE WINE SNOB WHO DRINKS WHITE IN WINTER
Love a good ski weekend by the fireplace, but hate when your white wine gets warm? A real-deal wine snob would never add ice to her wine, but she will use insulated stainless steel glasses that look and feel like premium drinkware, but keep drinks perfectly chilled and ice cold from the first sip to the last drop.
BEST FOR THE WINE SNOB WITHOUT A DECANTER
A decanter is a must for every wine lover—it helps aerate the wine as you pour into it and filters the wine as you pour wine out. It holds your standard 750 ml wine bottle and is easy to pour without spills.
BEST AS A STOCKING STUFFER FOR A WINE SNOB
Red wine stains on the teeth or mouth (a.k.a. tannin teeth and malbec mouth) are not a good look, but these natural wipes were made to remove them. Their secret ingredient is simple: Baking Soda, which removes surface stains and neutralizes acids that can corrode enamel. They also contains Hydrogen Peroxide to gently whiten the teeth and kill bacteria.
BEST FOR THE LOUD AND PROUD WINE SNOB
Know someone who loves wine so much that they don’t care who knows it? This tee will be their new favorite wardrobe item. Although it’s short sleeves, it runs extra long in the back and is made from a super warm fabric that makes it more than comfortable to wear during the colder seasons.
7. Wine Nook
BEST FOR THE WINE SNOB WHO LOVES BOXED WINE
Some boxed wine really is delicious—and if you have someone on your list who prefers to slap the bag instead of uncork the bottle, this is the perfect gift. The Wine Nook is an adorable alternative to the not-so-classy cardboard box that bagged wine usually comes in. It’ll come in clutch for all events—tucking wine away in this handcrafted party accessory and letting guests serve themselves!
BEST FOR THE WINE SNOB WITH KITCHEN SPACE
Here’s a gift that all wine snobs would want, but not all have the space for. It’s the easiest way to keep wine at the temperature you desire, without overcrowding your fridge. You simply get your wine a fridge to themselves. This wine cooler has sturdy slide-out racks so you can easily fit as many as 18 bottles—and keep them cool until you’re ready to sip.
