One of the most used gifts throughout the world is a bottle of wine. It certainly is a great gift to give, but many will find that selecting a bottle of wine for that special someone can be quite the daunting task. Making matters even more troublesome is the fact that for certain occasions there will probably be other family and friends thinking that a bottle of wine will make a great gift too. If you want to stand out from the crowd we recommend wine accessories as a gift to the ultimate wine connoisseur.
When it comes to wine accessories your options are nearly endless, especially when it comes to wine storage. Especially for those with limited storage space a simply, yet elegant wine rack can be one of the best gifts to give. Even if their wine selection is small now, a wine rack will provide value for years to come as their collection continues to grow.
Another great wine accessory that would make a great gift is a quality made corkscrew. With screw-top wine bottles being somewhat of taboo in the wine enthusiast world, a well-made corkscrew can go a long way to help insure your resident wine connoisseur enjoys the finest quality wines from tightly sealed cork bottle tops. Not only does this gift provide an excellent function but many of them are decorative and make excellent gesture as a gift.
Of course we can’t talk about wine accessories without mentioned wine glasses. This is by far the ultimate wine accessory gift as it is absolutely crucial that you drink wine from a properly shaped glass to ensure the best taste. Naturally true wine glasses are usually clear glass, however a decorative crystal wine glass can be the ultimate gift for just about anyone who enjoys a glass of wine.
Do you want to go that extra mile for that special someone this year? Then you need to look no further than a wine decanter, especially if the recipient likes to enjoy a glass of wine on a frequent basis. Red wine drinkers are the ones that truly appreciate the functionality of a decanter, as it allows the wine to oxygenate. This makes the wine taste distinctive in all its glory and is a must have accessory.
There are several educational gifts that you could give to a wine connoisseur, whether it is a book on the history of wine or a simple magazine subscription like the Wine Enthusiast. A magazine subscription will provide the most value, as they will receive a new issue each and every month. This will allow the recipient to remember your gift and gain valuable insight into the world of wine enthusiasts.
But what does one do when they are looking to buy a gift for a known wine collector and enthusiast? There is a good chance they will already have the highest quality wine accessories, which makes buying for them a particular challenge. If this is the case then a wine cellar album will make an absolutely perfect gift for them.
Essentially a wine cellar album is a simple book where a wine collector can keep a detailed record of every wine they have selected to be included in their collection. It becomes a vital document to the wine enthusiast, who will reference it when looking to make yet another selection to add to their collection. This is by far one of the more thoughtful wine accessory gifts, and one that any wine lover will truly enjoy.
A wine tasting journal could be another thoughtful wine gift. This type of journal gives the wine lover a way to remember all the details of the wines they experience. People often write detailed notes of what foods were paired with the wine and all the purchase details for future remembrance.
In that same vein, a wine tasting journal can be another excellent gift for someone who is already a wine enthusiast. It will allow them to detail their experiences as they taste the wines they have in their collection and can make an excellent travel companion when visiting different parts of the world. As most journal’s the value increases as the recipient writes in it, which means every time they open it they will be thinking of you and your thoughtful gift.
So if you are thinking of a simple bottle of wine for that special someone, try thinking outside of the box or even take one of these ideas as an additional gift. We assure you that wine novices and enthusiasts alike will enjoy any one of these gifts on their special day.
