We’ve got gift ideas for all kinds of oenophiles, from foodies to adventurers.

5 Gift Ideas for the Wine Lover in Your Life

Drinking a Cabernet? Pair it with Wine Chips’ Smoked Gouda Start Kit, a salty snack sprinkled with spices and created specifically by the Napa Valley company to complement red wines

Let’s be honest: Shopping for a bottle to gift the wine lover in your life can be intimidating. Do they prefer red or white? Sparkling or dessert? Is this an opportunity to look to the Old World or stay closer to home with an American-made variety? 

And we haven’t even gotten into types of grapes yet.

That’s why we’re taking the guesswork out of the wine present process this holiday season. Ditch the bottle and wrap up something more creative—just a bit more, well, juice-adjacent.

There are plenty of tools that will please any wine drinker, from hand-forged sabers to waxed canvas caddies. Or, if you’ve got more of a foodie in your life, you can help them take their cooking game to the next level with sea salt kits that range in flavor from Cabernet Sauvignon to Chardonnay.

Of course, we’ve also got ideas for the adventurous oenophile. Give the gift of wine to-go with glasses that keep Sauvignon Blanc just as cold while out hiking or camping as it comes out of the refrigerator. Ever heard of chips made specifically for snacking while sipping? Yeah, us either. But now we have.
