Wine is most definitely at the center of many celebrations. There are some people who carry their love for wine throughout the entire year, truly embracing their deep-rooted love for fermented grapes. They don’t only like drinking it, but talking about it, shopping for it, and cooking with it.
If you know someone who is fanatic about wine, a wine-themed gift is a great idea that goes beyond a simple bottle of wine. Of course, you can go the traditional route and just buy them a bottle of vino, but if they love wine they probably already have a few bottles stashed. They may also be particular about what types they favor so choosing the right bottle can be risky.
This list has it all and is the perfect place to start shopping – wine jewelry, wine clothing, wine accessories, wine decor, wine gadgets and gizmos, and more. Of course, no real wine lover would say no to another bottle of wine in their collection so we do encourage grabbing a pretty bottle and adding it to any of these gifts.
Here are the 20 best gifts for wine lovers this Christmas:
1. Glass Artist Wine Glass Markers
This gift will ensure that any wine fanatic never loses their wine glass again. The markers are fun and easy to use, and a more creative option than typical wine glass charms. The pack of eight drink markers includes black, silver, gold, red, purple, pink, blue, and green. The liquid ink dries fast, doesn’t smear, and easily washes off with the wipe that’s included. Since this gift is on the smaller and less expensive side, you can also purchase a nice set of stemless wine glasses to pair with these. If you prefer the idea of wine charms instead, check out the many options here.
Price: $15.45 (22 percent off MSRP)
2. This Might Be Wine Mug
This coffee mug is pretty funny (maybe true) and makes a perfect gift for any wine enthusiast. While wine has a very important job to do, it’s best (and more socially acceptable) to start each day with a cup of joe instead. This is a great option for a friend, a co-worker, or any family member. The mug is very reasonably priced so you might want to consider grabbing a few of these. If you like the idea of combining the wine theme and the coffee theme, this mug is another funny option. You can also check out this adorable tee.

Rewined candles are a great option for any wine lover who also enjoys upcycled things. The glass on each candle is cut from a recycled wine bottle, limiting waste.

15. One-Touch Luxury Wine Aerator
When you open a new bottle of wine you’re sometimes hit with a bitter and dry taste, caused by the tannins in your wine that occur naturally. Age can help soften tannins, and so can aeration, especially in younger wines. This tool infuses air into wine as it’s dispensed, providing the oxygen needed to soften those tannins and other elements like sulfites, sulfides, and ethanol. After aeration, the good tasting characteristics in any wine will stand out in each sip. This aerator is compound, sleek, and easy to use. The most recommended wines to aerate include: Bordeaux blends, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Mourvédre, Nebbiolo, Nero D’Avola, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Tannat, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, as well as some Malbec and some Pinot Noir. Consider gifting a bottle of one of these varietals with your gift.

If this design isn’t quite their style check out alternative “His & Her” or “Mr. & Mrs.” wine glass options here.
